'Star Trek: Picard' Unveils New Explosive Trailer, Premiere Date

During the second half of a two-part panel at New York Comic Con 2019, CBS All Access previewed a new trailer for its upcoming series "Star Trek: Picard", which will premiere January 23, 2020. The new series will follow this iconic character into the next chapter of his life. There were huge reactions in the room (and I'm sure at home) when Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) entered with two blasters, as well as the return of Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis), who now have a kid together.

Although the trailer and images have been dropped, Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 has not yet been given an official premiere date.

"Thank you for not trying to talk me out of this", Picard says, as he sits on a dock with Riker. His former first officer's response is a nod to their complicated history on "The Next Generation". "I don't think the fans would have appreciated that", executive producer Heather Kadin said about regrouping everyone for nostalgia's sake.

Additionally, executive producer Alex Kurtzman sees the series - and the entire franchise - as a way of addressing problems that exist in today's world.

"When we bounce to this foreseeable future that we never know, total of uncertainty, we have to grapple with how that is likely to influence how we see ourselves, and then how we're heading to navigate this", explained Martin-Eco-friendly. "So the question becomes: What has happened to him in that period of time?" "Sometimes it's unpleasant and not comfortable and inconvenient and hurtful - but responsibility phone calls".

While the new show will include other favorites from past Star Trek series, during the panel viewers were told not to expect a reunion for The Next Generation but rather only characters who will wind up within the story naturally.

During the panel, executive producer Alex Kurtzman announced that the next installments of "Star Trek: Short Treks" will begin rolling out today, with the first new short "Q&A" available to stream right now on CBS All Access. Written by Michael Chabon and directed by Mark Pellington, "Q&A" follows Ensign Spock's (Ethan Peck) first day aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, which doesn't go as planned when he and Number One (Rebecca Romijn) are unexpectedly stuck together in a turbo lift.
