While speaking to Variety about Logan, where he plays an aged Charles Xavier, Sir Patrick Stewart was asked if he would ever return to Star Trek.
The answer was “no,” well – unless the story was right.
“Oh, lord. I cannot think of another instance in which that might happen,” said Stewart. “My feeling is I hung up the space suit and left all that behind a long time ago. Maybe if someone came up with a brilliant idea, I’d do it. One thing that might interest me would be to bring all the existing casts of Star Trek from the last fifty years together for one big story.”
