Yup, Michelle Hurd watched Star Trek as a kid. A lot of Star Trek. But her fandom took on special meaning as she caught a classic episode in 2019—just a few months after landing the role of Starfleet Lieutenant Commander Raffaela “Raffi” Musiker on the new spinoff series Picard.

“It actually brought me to tears,” she says. “I couldn’t believe that I was on this show with this family and this legacy. It made me want to live up to the responsibility and do it justice.”
