Star Trek followers, meet the USS Titan-A, the brand new ship on the heart of Star Trek: Picard’s third and ultimate season. The Titan-A debuted within the Star Trek: Picard Season 3 trailer launched on Star Trek Day, with Seven of Nine aboard as commander, having lastly joined Starfleet. But the USS Titan-A just isn’t the identical Titan that Will Riker left the Enterprise to command in Star Trek: Nemesis, although they do share a connection and a few components. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 showrunner Terry Matalas defined the connection between the 2 Titan ships in a brand new interview with TrekMovie

“It is the Titan-A, sure,” Matalas says of the vessel seen within the Star Trek: Picard Season 3 trailer. “You’ll see within the season, that within the commentary room we honor the earlier Titans which have come earlier than. You’ll see a gold mannequin of the Luna class USS Titan as seen in Lower Decks, which was designed by Sean Tourangeau. And we even see a earlier incarnation from the TOS film period. We’ll see that there was a Titan that was a little bit of a Constitution class as nicely, the unique Shangri-La class [designed by Bill Krause]. So, the thought was that after the Luna class’s legacy run with Riker, that ship was broken and retired. Some of the programs have been refit and put into this new Titan, the Titan-A.”

As for the Titan-A’s objective within the fleet, Matalas says the Titan-A harkens again to the golden age of Starfleet as an exploratory establishment, earlier than the Dominion War and the approaching Borg menace. “It is a basic exploratory vessel that could be a little bit of an underdog within the scenario that it will get into,” he says. “So we actually wished to take a second right here and take into consideration the place Starfleet is at and the way it might see benefits within the diversification of ship designs together with purpose-built ships that have been designed for particular kinds of missions. The new Titan is extra of a long-range workhorse of a ship. Harkening again to the Constitution class that was designed for the lengthy 5-year missions. It is an exploratory vessel with some severe maneuvering capabilities. Have you seen these impulse engines? Phew!”

Matalas describes the Titan-A as Star Trek: Picard Season 3’s “hero ship,” suggesting it will be the vessel that takes the reunited Star Trek: The Next Generation forged on their subsequent mission. We’ll see when Star Trek: Picard Season 3 premieres on Paramount+ on February sixteenth.
