The first teaser trailer for Star Trek: Picard begins with a voice-over. “15 years ago today you led us out of the darkness. You commanded the greatest rescue armada in history. Then, the unimaginable. What did that cost you? Your faith? Your faith in us? Your faith in yourself? Tell us, why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?”
Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard comes into frame. He doesn’t answer the question but simply looks straight into the camera. The minute-long trailer ends with the tagline: “The end is only the beginning.”
CBS All Access also released the official poster for the upcoming sci-fi series.
Joining Sir Patrick Stewart in the new Star Trek series are Alison Pill (The Newsroom, the American Horror Story anthology), Michelle Hurd (Lethal Weapon), Evan Evagora, Isa Briones (American Crime Story: Versace), Santiago Cabrera (Big Little Lies), and Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful, Mr. Mercedes).
