My First Contact: Michael Chabon, Part II

Michael Chabon discusses the energy on the set of 'Star Trek: Picard,' and how he and the team took Patrick Stewart's advice as gospel

In the first part of his My First Contact, Star Trek: Picard showrunner and executive producer Michael Chabon shared how his early love of Star Trek and other science fiction worlds led to a career in writing. Now, Chabon returns to for Part II to chat more about what it was like to work on Picard, Patrick Stewart's influence, what Jonathan Frakes is like as a director, and more.
