It’s been 18 years since we last saw Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard sitting in the captain’s chair in the movie Star Trek: Nemesis. Previous to that, one of the Star Trek universe’s most beloved characters captained the USS Enterprise-D on Star Trek: The Next Generation for 7 seasons from 1987 – 1994.
In the first trailer to this upcoming series called Star Trek: Picard, a woman narrates, asking questions. “Tell us. Why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?”
ET Canada reports that Patrick Stewart has said that this new series will be structured like a “10-hour movie”.
(A side note to this trailer, it shows a crate of wine bottles labeled Chateau Picard. There is a winery called Chateau Picard in Bordeaux, France. The labels shown are not the same as the actual winery but a fictional, futuristic version of Château Picard was enjoyed by the captain in the TNG series.)
UPDATE: This new series will debut January 23rd in on CTV’s Sci Fi channel and, theoretically (please!) on Crave.
