CBS All Access Debuts First Look at Star Trek: Picard

First Look at Patrick Stewart in STAR TREK PICARD

While CBS showed those in attendance plenty of new series and projects coming to the network, the only one the people reading this article are likely concerned about is the highly anticipated Star Trek: Picard. The still-untitled show, airing on Space, will follow Picard "in the next chapter of his life", presumably after fulfilling his duty as a member of Starfleet. Perhaps that is a little disingenuous, as the truth is Star Trek is finding a rebirth on our TVs with quite a few shows (including the recent Discovery series on Netflix) that are prepared to go in directions where Star Trek has indeed never been before. Via StarTrek.com, the series has been given the simple, yet effective moniker of Star Trek: Picard. What happens when circumstances have conspired to not give him the happiest of endings?

Stewart's return to the role of Jean-Luc Picard was first announced in August, and the veteran actor - who is also well-known for portraying telepathic mutant Charles Xavier in the X-Men movies - said he was "excited and invigorated" to revisit the character.

Patrick Stewart revealed the show will take place "exactly nineteen years in the future, which was how time has passed since the last time I put on my spacesuit...for the television series". Also of note is that fact Picard is in civilian clothes and not his uniform, which is keeping with the news that the former captain will no longer be part of Starfleet in the new series. As another bold new move for the series, the pilot episode is going to be directed by Hanelle Culpepper (Star Trek: Discovery), which will mark the first time a woman has launched a new Star Trek series in the franchise's 53-year history (feel old yet?).
