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.)
This new series will debut at the end of the year in Canada on Space Channel and Crave.
