Our favourite captain returns over summer.
As just revealed at the New York Comic Con Star Trek panel, Picard now has a release date and another thrilling, nostalgia-stoking new trailer. Years after his time at Starfleet, Picard is back in action, older, sadder, and probably even more impossibly wise.
The new trailer expands on the story details revealed in the last one, expanding on Picard’s dangerous journey away from the comforts of Starfleet’s power. It also begins with a dream(y) appearance by Data, and we get to see Riker! “I came here to find safety,” Picard says. “But no one’s ever safe from the past.”
The rest of the trailer fills in more on what we already know, confirming that Picard is indeed acting outside of Starfleet’s authorisation and that this mystery woman, whoever she may be, is important, and needs Picard’s help. And if anyone is going to stand up for the values of Starfleet and good morals in general, it’s goshdanged Jean Luc Picard.
And, thank the stars(fleet), we finally have a release date for the series: January 24, 2020, on CBS All Access, or Amazon Prime Video here in Australia.
