An Alternate Captain Shaw Death Scene Was Filmed For ‘Star Trek: Picard’ [UPDATED] –

One of the standout characters introduced for the third season of Star Trek: Picard was Captain Liam Shaw, played by Todd Stashwick. Shaw died in the penultimate episode of the season (“Vox”) and handed over command of the USS Titan to his first officer, Seven of Nine. Now you can see an alternate take from that emotional scene.

UPDATE: The video has been removed from Twitter. The original article describing the clip is below…


Another death of Shaw

Picard showrunner Terry Matalas shared a clip of an alternate death scene for Shaw on the social media site formerly known as Twitter.

The alternate version of Shaw’s death has a bit more of his “Dips–t from Chicago” acerbic tone. This version has Shaw saying “[It’s not my ship] anymore. It’s yours. But don’t touch my stuff, Seven of Nine.” In the final version, Shaw said: “It’s not my ship anymore. It’s yours. You have the conn, Seven of Nine.”

Season 3 had set up Shaw conflicting with his first officer, even refusing to use her Borg name, making her use Commander Annika Hansen on his ship. So calling her Seven of Nine for the first time was a big deal and that was maintained in both versions.

Reminder: Season 3 Blu-ray/DVD coming next month
