Star Trek: Picard’s New Teaser Promises a Sense of Renewal for the Captain

CBS All Access just released a brand new teaser trailer for Star Trek: Picard today and in it we get to see the former USS Stargazer captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) find a sense of renewal after he comes across a young woman who seeks his help.

Though the teaser doesn't really last for very long, the 30-second video gives a good idea of Picard's state of mind in the upcoming series. Created by Star Trek: Discovery's Alex Kurtzman, Star Trek: Picard is set at the end of the 24th century, two decades after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis.

The series is supposed to tell the next chapter of Picard's life after Star Trek: The Next Generation, and while plot details are being held close to the chest, Kurtzman did tell fans that Picard is supposed to be a "very different show from Discovery."
