Star Trek: Picard series detailed: Here’s what we know so far

CBS revealed at its NY upfronts that its new Star Trek series, in which Patrick Stewart will reprise his Next Generation Jean-Luc Picard role, will officially be titled Star Trek: Picard.

The first look involved the title reveal as well as the show's logo.

Not much is known about who else will be appearing in this new Star Trek iteration nor about what Picard's trajectory throughout the series will be. According to ComicBook.com, Picard was shown "going unrecognized by a current Starfleet officer". Perhaps that is a little disingenuous, as the truth is Star Trek is finding a rebirth on our TVs with quite a few shows (including the recent Discovery series on Netflix) that are prepared to go in directions where Star Trek has indeed never been before. What happens when circumstances have conspired to not give him the happiest of endings? "It speaks to the rainbow of colors we're playing with in all these different shows".

Not only did we get the show's title and logo, but there was also a glimpse at Patrick Stewart's Picard.

But there will be a change to Picard's military status. Also of note is that fact Picard is in civilian clothes and not his uniform, which is keeping with the news that the former captain will no longer be part of Starfleet in the new series.

Oh, and if you fancy catching up with Jean-Luc Picard ahead of the new series, you can catch classic episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation on BBC America.

From what we understand, the series is set to take place 18 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis, with Picard being deeply affected by the destruction of Romulus (as shown in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot). In addition to the logo above, you can check out a slightly off-kilter pic of Stewart back in character below.
