The original Borg Queen played by Alice Krige returned to Star Trek: Lower Decks even though Annie Wersching will appear as the new Borg Queen in Star Trek: Picard season 2. One of the greatest villains in Star Trek history, the Borg Queen is an unforgettable (and controversial) menace who continues to threaten the 24th-century heroes of Star Trek in her multiple incarnations portrayed by three different actresses.
