In Star Trek Picard Season 3, a new villainess awaits us in the form of Vadic. The diabolical villainess is played by cult actress Amanda Plummer. Here’s what you need to know about her!
- In the new trailer for “Star Trek: Picard” season 3, the new villainess is revealed: Vadic.
- Vadic, captain of the starship Shrike, is a completely new character that hasn’t appeared on “Star Trek” before.
- The villain is portrayed by veteran actress Amanda Plummer, whom you know from “Pulp Fiction”.
Next year, “Star Trek: Picard” returns to U.S. streaming service Paramount+ with Season 3, and in addition to the familiar faces of the “The Next Century” crew, it also has a new main character in store: villain Vadic, captain of the Shrike, portrayed by Amanda Plummer.
We see Vadic in action for the first time in the new trailer for “Star Trek: Picard” Season 3, but we don’t learn much about her. Her spaceship bears the name Shrike, which looks like it would be a Romulan ship. However, Vadic herself is not Romulan.
Her words in the trailer suggest a personal vendetta against Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart): “I stab and smash everything that makes you you.” She also gives a speech in front of her crew members that once again addresses her feud with Picard.
“We will burn the earth on which he stands, and the night will be lit by the ashes of the Federation. But first we will have our revenge,” it reads fatefully! What exactly the open account is, however, has not yet been revealed.
Even though the role of Vadic in “Star Trek: Picard” Season 3 is new, actress Amanda Plummer is an old hand in the movie business. Film and series fans know her from “Pulp Fiction,” “King of the Fishers,” “The Tributes to Panem: Catching Fire” and the Netflix series “Ratched,” among others.
In addition to Vadic, “Star Trek – The Next Century” villains Lore (Brent Spiner) and Moriarty (Daniel Davis) also return. Lore is Data’s evil twin brother who, as an android, sees himself as superior to living beings and even makes common cause with the Borg one day.
Moriarty is a holodeck version of the Sherlock Holmes character. Geordi (LeVar Burton) wants to challenge Data in the holodeck, but the programmed Prof. Moriarty becomes too intelligent that he takes on a life of his own and becomes a threat to the starship Enterprise.
How Lore and Moriarty fit into the plot remains to be seen. Will they make common cause with Vadic and the Shrike? Or will they even be used as allies? At the sight of Lore, Geordi seems anything but thrilled.
On February 16, 2023, the final season of “Star Trek: Picard” will be released by streaming service Paramount+.
