Jean-Luc Picard is considered one of the more fan-favorite Starfleet captains, and CBS has promised to bring him back for his own spinoff show. Now we have the first trailer released for Star Trek: Picard:
“15 years ago today, you led us out of the darkness. You commanded the greatest rescue armada in history, then the unimaginable… What did that cost you? Your faith. Your faith in us. Your faith in yourself. Tell us, why did you leave Starfleet Admiral?”
The last time Stewart had played Picard was back in 2002 in Star Trek: Nemesis, and since then he’s only reprised the role in video games and nothing else.
It will be interesting to see where this series goes, what with the trailer showing us that Picard has retired and is probably running a vineyard, putting Starfleet behind him. We don’t know what could possibly have happened that they want him back, but hopefully it was a good enough story that Stewart would get onboard once again.
No release date has been set for Star Trek: Picard, but the series is expected to premiere sometime within the year on CBS All Access.
