Today, CBS All Access released the first trailer for the Star Trek: Picard TV show and it appears that more than one familiar face is onboard for the upcoming series. In addition to Sir Patrick Stewart returning to play Jean Luc Picard, we see Star Trek: Voyager’s Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) as well as Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Hugh the Borg (Jonathan Del Arco) and Data/B4 (Brent Spiner).
Though not in the trailer, it was confirmed at the Comic Con panel by showrunner Michael Chabon that Jonathan Frakes (who’s also directing several episodes) and Marina Sirtis will reprise their roles as William T. Riker and Deanna Troi from TNG.
Star Trek: Picard is expected to premiere on CBS All Access in early 2020. I wouldn’t be surprised if the first episode also aired on the CBS broadcast network. Here’s the trailer, as well as some additional details:
