WATCH: What if Patrick Stewart played Shinzon in Nemesis?

With the debut of Star Trek: Picard right around the corner, many of us are looking back at Patrick Stewart‘s history with the character. Following seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stewart continued to play Captain Jean-Luc Picard in four feature films—including for the final time, in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. In that film, Picard comes face-to-face the Romulan-created clone of himself, Shinzon, played by Tom Hardy. In a new “deepfake” video, which utilizes machine learning AI technology, Youtuber Deep Homage replaces Hardy’s face with Stewart’s in what can be described as an interesting look at how the dynamic may have played out on screen, if Picard’s younger clone looked more like he does.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Do you think Patrick Stewart should’ve played Shinzon? Does Hardy’s voice matched up with Stewart’s face weird you out as it does us? Tell us in the comments section below.

Star Trek: Picard is slated to premiere in early 2020 and will see Patrick Stewart return to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, alongside Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd and Evan Evagora. It is being produced by Stewart himself along with Alex Kurtzman, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth and Aaron Baiers.

    Why didn’t they deepfake this with a younger image of Patrick Stewart?

      I ordinarily receive about 6,000 $ to 7,000 $ each 30 days by going online. Haven’t you realized that the future is in the internet arena whether is online advertising or just working for businesses that are based and hire online employees. If you don’t do it now you will always regret it sooner or later you will be force to make the switch but you won’t be in the driver’s chair any longer. So what are the benefits to having the capacity to generate money online? Well there are several. For one there’s increased capacity to automate and are working even while, you are sleeping. You also don’t have to work at the typical and uncomfortable work environment. You can work when you need and this includes more flexibility to take that needed vacation whenever. You can work where you need –at home, at the library, in the coffee shop, in your cabin, or in your Caribbean cruise. You can even wear exactly what you would like, I favor sweat pants and a T-shirt you might like your bath robe. Other huge benefits to a”earn money online” kind of occupation are you don’t need to think about merchandise whether or not be storage, supply, tech support, you name it. So this sounds good ? So what are you waiting for? Oh. . .you think the first risk of quitting your job to make money online is too large? Well then don’t quit your job! You are able to easily maintain both a normal job and an internet income at the exact same time and you’ll find very soon that you don’t have anything to fear. So please don’t wait, today is your chance to beat the mad rush and in the pace that makes you comfortable. ==>

    I seem to remember some rumblings about the powers that be wanting Sean Connery to play Shinzon, though I can’t find it now. Seems Michael Shanks of Stargate was in line to play Shinzon at one point, according to Memory Alpha.

      You sure you aren’t conflating the rumors of Star Trek V wanting to cast Connery as Sybok?
