Star Trek: Picard Trailer Released At San Diego Comic-Con 2019
The full trailer for Star Trek: Picard was released during the Star Trek Universe panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
Sir Patrick Stewart is back with a bang for the spin-off series which will air on CBS All Access streaming service in early 2020.
The series will also be streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and in 200 other territories around the world.
When the official Twitter page for Star Trek posted the two minute clip, fans went wild with one writing: "I'm not crying. I'm not crying. I'm not crying. I'm not crying."
Another said: "I'd be lying if I said I didn't scream when 7 of 9 came on screen!" Another agreed, saying: "I've lost my voice screaming!! Believe me!! Just fantastic."
Speaking to ComicBook.com at the TCA 2019 Winter Press Tour, executive producer Alex Kurtzman said: "Everybody in that room loves Jean-Luc Picard very deeply, and obviously, the benefit that we have is that Jean-Luc Picard is in the room with us.
I just watched this. I am screaming. Jeri Ryan at the end!!!!!! Oh my goooodness. Showing my inner Trekkie - how EXCTING!

"And so, as we're breaking story, we're asking ourselves, 'How do we live to the spirit, and to the character, and for the tone that Next Gen set, but also make it something very, very different in other ways?'
"And Patrick was really clear with us from the beginning. He did not want to repeat what he had already done. And by the way, it's been 20 plus years, so he couldn't possibly be that same person anymore.
"And so, the question becomes, 'What has happened to him in that period of time? Have there been occurrences that forced him to reckon with choices that he's made in his life?
"How do you hold on to being the person everybody loved when the circumstances around you may have changed so radically?' And those are the big questions that we're asking."
Patrick Steward himself tweeted the trailer with the caption: "The journey is far from over. #StarTrekPicard #Picard #SDCC2019 #ComicCon".
Thank you to the entire cast and crew for giving younger fans like me the chance to see new adventures with the TNG characters. I grew up only watching reruns and never thought I'd get this opportunity :pray::vulcan:
