On Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con, CBS unveiled the first full trailer for , while also naming the premiere date. Picard is set to air on CBS All Access, like its sister show Star Trek: Discovery. (Disclosure: CBS is the parent company of CNET.)
Here are some of the standout quotes and moments from the above trailer:
It begins with Picard trying to survive on his family vineyard. “I tried to belong here,” he says, “but it never truly felt like home.”
Isa Briones’ character Daj, appears on screen, pleading for Picard’s help and shelter. “Everything inside me says I am safe with you.” Cut to Picard at Starfleet, telling someone across from him: “If she is who I think she is, she is in serious danger.” Others throughout the trailer allude to Briones’ character not knowing who she is, or what she’s capable of.
“I don’t want the game to end,” Picard says. “I can see that Captain,” Data (???!?) replies. Is it a dream? it is insanity? Who can be sure until the series arrives.
The series sees Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Admiral Jean-Luc Picard after a long hiatus. Previously announced cast members also include Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora.
Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman said it’s very different in tone from Discovery. He said Stewart pushed them to think outside the box. “And (to think) about what was important about the box that everybody loves so much, so we asked a lot of questions about what Trek meant to each of us.”
