The action of the third season of “Picard” is actually kicked off by Dr. Crusher, as she fires weapons at the bodies of infiltrating masked monsters. Because she was there from the very first scene, it could be assumed that McFadden was on set for most of season three’s production. As such, he was in the unique position of greeting each of his co-stars as they were called out one by one. She begins the show on Elios, and is later rescued from an attacking villain and taken aboard the USS Titan-A, a Starfleet ship. The next actor on the call sheet was Michael Dorn, who plays the Klingon Worf. McFadden well remembered meeting him and said:
“I remember the day Michael Dorn came in and I was shooting the first scene in Elios. And I was having a lot of fun because it was an action scene, which I love. I love anything that has movement. And then Michael moves on. We we’d seen. We talked the whole time. But we both hugged each other and said, ‘This is great!’ That’s the one I remember the most, because it was the first one I saw.”
After that, the moments continued for McFadden as more and more of his former co-workers re-entered the story. The first part of the third season of “Picard” saw Jean-Luc (Stewart) and Captain Riker (Jonathan Frakes) rescue Dr. Crusher from a bind. As such, it had several scenes where the three were united on the Titan’s bridge. During one such moment, McFadden had a sudden bout of self-consciousness and found the rush of good feelings to be his favorite moment of working on the show.
