The first trailer for Star Trek: Picard, a new series headed to CBS All Access in 2020, debuted at SDCC, and it didn’t disappoint in the least. I mean it features Jean-Luc after all, and Mr. Stewart looks the part all these years after he last played the Captain. Plus, there’s all sorts of cameos and surprises for fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, so there’s something for everyone.
Clearly, Trek fans will be way into this new series, but based on the trailer, I think sci-fi fans in general will take to it. You may need to brush up on some TNG and general TV Star Trek lore, and apparently, a little bit of J.J. Trek lore too, but overall I think this just looks like a solid sci-fi genre series.
So much so, that I may have to pony up for some CBS All Access in 2020. I’m currently going through a rewatch of TNG on Netflix, so I have Picard on the brain, which means it’ll be nearly impossible to not sub when Picard drops early 2020. Check out the trailer above.
