Crossover TV Episode: Watcher


In this episode of Star Trek: Picard set on April 12, 2024, Guinan closes her bar at 10 Forward Avenue and entrusts her pit bull Luna to her friend Dale. Dale is played by Brian Quinn, who previously played the role in the 12 Monkeys episode “Year of the Monkey” and the MacGyver episode “Mac + Desi + Riley + Aubrey.” The MacGyver reboot has crossed-over with the Hawaii Five-O reboot twice, which in turn twice crossed-over with the Magnum, P.I. reboot. All three series are incompatible with the original shows, which are all in the CU, so they must be set in an alternate universe. Hawaii Five-O also crossed-over with NCIS: Los Angeles twice. The various NCIS shows are in the CU, so the NCIS: Los Angeles characters must have counterparts in that AU. Obviously, Dale does as well. The TV version of 12 Monkeys ends with the time-traveling protagonists averting the disastrous future that they were trying to prevent throughout its run, so that presents no problem. The TV series is not in continuity with Terry Gilliam’s original film, which would be in its own universe. Swaford Single Malt Whiskey has appeared in both Star Trek: Picard and the MacGyver reboot.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
