Star Trek: Picard Series Trailer
The lastest promotional spot focuses on the “mission” that Jean-Luc will endeavor to make so.
The trailer just below premiered back in October at NYCC.

And here is the first teaser we got…
Star Trek Picard Series Cast
Big news came out of Star Trek‘s appearance at SDCC 2019: CBS All Access revealed that Brent Spiner and Jeri Ryan would be joining the cast of Picard. If those names sound familiar it’s because they are both part of the Star Trek universe already. Spiner played Lt. Commander Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Ryan played Seven of Nine in Star Trek: Voyager.
Also announced as part of the cast is Jonathan Del Arco, who played the Borg Hugh in Next Generation. It’s a grand reunion all around!
Joining Stewart in the main cast: Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful), Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Santiago Cabrera, and Michelle Hurd.
Briones is playing Dahj, a young woman who comes to Picard looking for his help.
Pill is playing Agnes Jurati, a doctor who shares a common goal with Picard.
Cabrera is Cristobal “Chris” Rios, the pilot of Picard’s ship and a skilled thief and former Starfleet officer.
Hurd is Raffi Musiker, a former Starfleet intelligence officer struggling with substance abuse who Picard goes to for assistance. She is also Rios’ partner.
Treadaway and Evagora will be playing Romulans Narek and Elnor, respectively. Narek is a Romulan agent investigating what the Romulans are doing to former Borg. Elnor is a Romulan refugee who is fiercely loyal to Picard. You can learn more about their characters here.
Star Trek Picard Series Episodes & Story
The Picard series takes place 18 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis, with Picard having apparently left his life as a Starfleet Admiral 15 years prior to the start of the new series. Star Trek: Picard will see how Picard is pulled back into Starfleet’s orbit, when Dahj asks for his help.
Stewart spoke to Yahoo about the series, saying it will be like “a 10-hour movie.”
Stewart issued a lengthy statement via Instagram, which we reproduce in full here:
“I will always be very proud to have been a part of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with Star Trek had run its natural course. It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.
During these past years, it has been humbling to hear stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason – to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.”
