There is less than a month until Star Trek: Picard arrives on CBS All Access. This week, a new trailer was released without fanfare on the CBS All Access Facebook page. It gives a look at some of the environments that this new program will be inhabiting. It also shows a very resolved Jean-Luc Picard. If you don’t want to know too much about Star Trek: Picard, it’s probably the time to stop watching trailers. This really doesn’t give too much away but it is starting to put some of the puzzle pieces together for what Picard will be feeling and facing.

So What Do You Think?
I’m getting more and more intrigued by this new Star Trek show as I see more about it. Initially, it appeared that this was going to be primarily focused on the Romulans at a first glance. However, as we are seeing more clips from Picard, it appears that the Borg are going to be playing a fairly large role in this show as well. It also appears that Jean-Luc Picard will continue to the hero that we have known and loved for decades. He is principled, disciplined (even when doing his own thing), and determined. It will be interesting to see if they continue with his diplomatic strengths as well that we see in The Next Generation as well. It is nice to see the return of some other familiar faces as well. It will be interesting to see if they are significant roles or glorified cameos. Either way, I’m glad they are back!
