‘Star Trek: Picard’ Trailer: Data, Riker and Troi Reunite With Their Former Captain

CBS All Access has revealed a new, longer Star Trek: Picard trailer while also confirming when, exactly, you’ll get to see the new series. The Amazon Prime spin-off show centred around iconic character Jean-Luc Picard has been hotly anticipated since its announcement, thanks in no small part to Sir Patrick Stewart agreeing to reprise the role. Now it has been confirmed that the sci-fi series will have a 10-episode run and will initially air in the US on CBS All Access, before becoming available internationally every Friday on Prime Video. Set at the end of the 24th century, twenty years after the events of “Star Trek: Nemesis” (2002), the storyline is affected by the destruction of Romulus referenced in the film “Star Trek” (2009), as well as the death of Data from the aforementioned Nemesis, which Picard is deeply affected by. Stewart, 79, helmed the USS Enterprise as Picard for seven seasons of “The Next Generation” and four movies. Despite assimilation by the Borg and other unsavory and challenging encounters with aliens and humans alike, Picard had been a steadfast and moral figure, driven by duty but often alone, as he is the last of the Picards. Star Trek: Picard premiere date has been set for Thursday, January 23, 2020, where it will kick off with the premiere episode. The trailer teases the return of Brent Spiner as Data, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine of the Borg, Jonathan Frankes as William Riker (aka Number One), and Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi. The series also stars Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadway, and Evan Evagora. Following the January 23 premiere, new episodes of “Star Trek: Picard’s” 10-episode first season will be available weekly on Thursdays, exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S, and weekly on Fridays for international viewers, on Amazon Prime.
