The trailer for the ‘Star Trek’ spin-off was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con
The first full look of Patrick Stewart’s return as Jean-Luc Picard has been unveiled in the new trailer for Star Trek: Picard.
Following a teaser released in May, the first official footage from the Star Trek spin-off was revealed yesterday (July 20) during the show’s panel at 2019 San Diego Comic-Con.
In the trailer, Picard is seen looking over Data’s body parts when he’s asked if he’s “ever been a stranger” to himself.
“Many, many times,” he answers. “Nearly two decades ago, Commander Data sacrificed his life for me. These past few years, I’ve really tried to belong here [away from Starfleet]. But it never truly felt like home.”
After a mysterious young woman seeks him out, Picard returns to Starfleet in order to protect her at all costs – and that means manning a Federation ship with his own crew of recruits.
