Nicolas Cage Doesn’t Want To Be In Star Wars, Says He’s A Trekkie – TrekMovie.com

It looks like we can add another name to the list of famous Star Trek fans: Nicolas Cage. The Oscar-winning actor has declared himself a Trekkie and rejected the idea of appearing in that other “Star” franchise. Trek Cage In the 2022 film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Nicolas Cage co-starred with Pedro Pascal, star of The Mandalorian, who told a reporter for Yahoo he wanted to recruit Cage into the Star Wars franchise. But when Yahoo brought this idea to Cage, the actor rejected it, saying “No is the answer. I’m not really down [for Star Wars].” Cage went on to explain how he prefers a different franchise: I’m a Trekkie, man. I’m on the Star Trek. I’m on the Enterprise.

We are now less than two months away from the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard, which will bring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation back together. Now the showrunner is weighing in again on their former ship. Not the Enterprise-E, but… When last seen together in the 2002 film Star Trek Nemesis, the TNG crew were together on the USS-Enterprise-E, the Sovereign-class ship introduced in the 1996 film First Contact and used again in 1998’s Insurrection.

USS Enterprise-E Picard season 3 is set two decades later with most of the action set on board the USS Titan-A, and fans would like to know if t...
