This past month has been a bit of a wild ride for Star Trek fans. Not only did the crowdfunded Deep Space Nine documentary see a theatrical release (for a single night, mind you), but a long-standing question regarding Garak’s sexuality was finally laid to rest. Patrick Stewart fans will be glad to hear that a new series focusing on Jean-Luc Picard has officially entered production, and earlier today at the company’s All Access Upfronts presentation, CBS finally lifted the curtain on this new entry in the franchise.
As reported by ComicBook.com, those in attendance were treated to a first look at the show’s title, logo, and brand-new never-before-seen footage. Up until now, the series has remained untitled, but during the presentation, CBS executives referred to it as Star Trek: Picard. A logo appeared on screen, featuring the title spelled out in gold letters, with the Starfleet insignia taking the place of the letter “A” in Picard. It’s not entirely clear whether the name and logo are tentative or permanent, but we’re big fans of how simple and to-the-point they are.

That’s not the only thing which was shown off. Audience members got a brief glimpse at some new footage, and Buzzfeed News reporter Kate Aurthur was able to post a pic on Twitter. CBS hasn’t shed much light on the plot, though, as ComicBook.com notes, executive producer Alex Kurtzman explained it will center on Picard as a character, as it delves into his personality.
“The mandate was to make it a more psychological show, a character study about this man in his emeritus years. There are so few shows that allow a significantly older protagonist to be the driver.”
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 film). Details may be scarce, but thankfully, fans won’t have to wait long to catch him in action again. Star Trek: Picard is set to premiere later this year, with its first season consisting of 10 episodes. In North America, the show will stream exclusively on CBS All Access, while global streaming rights have been snatched up by Amazon.
