With the release of the trailers for Star Trek: Picard we have observed what either a flashback, or an in-universe reproduction or preserved artifact of the Captain Picard Day sign. This also affords us some much higher resolution views of this in-universe object.

Original TNG:

big multicolored sign as seen in TNG

Star Trek: Picard trailer:

new version of the above

And furthermore, this banner (or another reproduction) was on display at the Captain Picard Museum at SDCC 2019, which purports to be an in-universe museum dedicated to the lifetime accomplishments of Captain/Admiral Picard

So, given the high-resolution views we now have of the banner:

  • Which names can we tie to known children on the Enterprise-D?
  • For non-Terran scripts, which can we tie to a known language? Which can we read?

In short, who signed the sign?

  • Interesting, I believe this is pretty much the only time we see an Enterprise resident using a written language besides Earth script for day-to-day communication. Jul 23, 2019 at 5:28
  • Again, with escaping the tick marks...by my account, we have: Mok, Tiamé, Ja'Lok Noq, [roughly Z`3UƐ], Devyn, [roughly Z`JOƮ3, same script as previous], BLitn, [W-with a line, kind-of-fancy-N, captial-I-with huge serifs], Robert, [tilty-W-with-a-dot, L'H-joined], [green-reptilian?-hand-print], Michael Jul 23, 2019 at 6:25

    Just FYI: they are not exactly the same banners. The one in the trailer has more white space at the left edge and is also missing a purple signature below the green “a” in “Captain”, for instance.

  • @Praxis - Yes, the d in Picard is also wrong. It's pretty close though and someone's clearly taken a fair amount of time to try to get it right. Maybe the kids made multiple signs :-)

  • @Praxis, oh this is right. To my list, we need add "Qudei" or something like that. I guess this kid was retconned out. Or perhaps The universe is a spheroid region seven hundred and five metres in diameter. Uh oh. Jul 23, 2019 at 14:06
