The First Trailer for ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Calls Jean-Luc Picard Back to Action

For people of a certain age, their first exposure to Star Trek and its various frontiers was not William Shatner’s Captain Kirk nor the Chris Pine-led blockbusters, but Sir Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation. 

TNG took a chance, making a hero out of a balding, bookish type, who was as studious and erudite as Kirk had been churlish and strong-headed. The result was seven spectacular seasons of intellectually rigorous scifi and now, the 79-year-old Stewart is returning to the role that made him a household name with Star Trek: Picard, in which Picard is called away from his life of winemaking to rejoin Starfleet and presumably start boldly going you-know-where.

We got a surprise teaser of the show today, on the 25th anniversary of The Next Generation’s series finale.

Well, it looks like Picard’s had a very nice retirement but all good things must come to an end, as they say. This show will debut on CBS’ All Access service “soon,” whatever that means.
