Video: Decades after disembarking from the Starship Enterprise, Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) is finally returning where no one has gone before with Star Trek: Picard. The San Diego Comic-Con panel promises a new look at the series (and hopefully Picard’s dog). But, for those wanting a deeper glimpse at what’s in store, it’s time to check out the Jean-Luc Picard Museum.
We recently had a chance to visit an exhibit out of San Diego Comic-Con all about one of Star Trek’s greatest captains. “Jean-Luc Picard: The First Duty” is a special exhibition that boasts several props, costumes and stories that trace Picard’s journey through Star Trek: The Next Generation and the Star Trek films.
However, we also had a chance to peek at some of the new costumes and props from Star Trek: Picard. These included Picard’s new civilian outfit, complete with a pin showing his family crest, and some bottles of Chateau Picard, vintage 2386.
This is significant because, according to the placard, 2386 is the year Jean-Luc Picard took over the family vineyard following his brother’s death in Star Trek: Generations.
There are also several awards from his career — including a few that were awarded after 2379… the year of the final Star Trek movie featuring Picard, Nemesis. The docent confirmed they were props from the new series — as to whether they hint at Picard’s story between then and now, she said we’ll have to watch to find out.
Be sure to check out the video above for an in-depth look at one of the only times I’ve ever been psyched about going to a museum (just kidding, I like art and stuff). “Jean-Luc Picard: The First Duty” will be at Michael J Wolf Fine Arts in San Diego through Sunday, and even better — it’s free and open to the public, no Comic-Con badge required!
Star Trek: Picard debuts on Amazon Prime Video in Australia later this year.
