Why The Studio Pushed Back On Ro Laren's Return In Star Trek: Picard

Ensign Ro Laren (Michelle Forbes) first appeared in the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "Ensign Ro" (October 7, 1991), and she introduced an interesting character dynamic to the series. She was combative and disobedient as a result, often openly defying her captain and responding to diplomatic solutions with belligerence. Ro returned for "Star Trek: Picard,” and it turns out showrunner Terry Matalas had to push Paramount pretty hard to get her back on Trek.
