Star Trek: The Next Generation BEVERLY PICARD!

Star Trek: TNG - Capt. Beverly Picard - Previews Excl - DST/Art Asylum 2007
So this is my favorite chase figure of all the DST/Art Asylum ladies.  In the final episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (titled "All Good Things..."), Captain Jean-Luc Picard finds himself suffering from random temporal displacements.  One moment he's with his familiar crew, the next he is far in the past.  And then suddenly he's in an unfamiliar future.  It is in that future that he meets Beverly Picard as Captain of the USS Pasteur.  I enjoyed this so much because it showed the fulfillment of their relationship without resorting to a "season-finale-jumble" where all the storylines are wrapped up in a haphazard way (I've seen this happen one time time too many).  With a simple cameo, we knew that Captain Picard and Beverly Crusher were married and that her professional potential was fully realized by her becoming Captain of her own ship.  This figure looks older than the look they gave to Gates McFadden in the show, but it still embodies an older Dr. Crusher perfectly.  She also looks appropriately stern and Captain-ish.  Let's check her out in detail below!


Captain Picard came with a Phaser, a TriCorder, and a PADD.

Here is a pic of Captain Picard from the final episode.

Time for some Comparison Pics!



  1. I love the AGT Beverly figures. Both Playmates & DST did a great job with her.

    I agree this figure does look a bit older than she should. It also looks like she's been stuffing her face with Cheetos or has a 5 o'clock shadow or something going on there! haha

    The AGT figures look very nice together. I loved that DST tried to use different outfits than those made by Playmates in the 90's.

    1. Haha I had the same thoughts about the orange paint wash around her face! It really made me question if that's a natural part of aging that I just never noticed (It kind of is.. I've been paying attention).

      I love when a small but important role (or variation) for a character gets the action figure treatment... even moreso when two companies see the same potential. Sometimes I'm convinced that the executives decisions at toy companies are made by boring guys in suits, but then this stuff happens and you realize they're most likely just like us.
