Is there a trailer for the Picard series?
A teaser trailer dropped in May showing Picard unhappy in retirement. That was quickly followed by a poster showing Picard alongside his trusted new canine companion, cheekily named Number One, according to Entertainment Weekly. However, Comic-Con brought along the first new trailer showcasing Picard back in action alongside new and old characters.
What is Star Trek: Picard going to be about?
The new trailer provided the best look at the Picard series yet, but it's all still pretty shrouded in mystery. Based on the two trailers out, we know the show will pick up with Picard in retirement having left Star Fleet to pursue a simpler life working on a vineyard. A cataclysmic event teased to be the destruction of the Romulan home world sent him into seclusion from the organization. However, when a young woman approaches him for help, Picard insists she's in "serious danger" and agrees to retake a leadership position with a rag-tag new crew to solve the problem. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Picard will do so under the banner of Star Fleet as he seems to have left on unhappy terms.
The series also seems like it will deal with the death of Data -- he's featured prominently at the beginning of the trailer. Fans that understood Picard and the android's relationship in The Next Generation won't be surprised to learn that he's still beating himself up over Data's self-sacrifice even all these years.
That's where details of the new series pretty much dry up. However, Kurtzman previously told Entertainment Weekly what fans can expect from the tone of the show, specifically in relation to Discovery. "It's an extremely different rhythm than [Star Trek: Discovery]," he said. "Discovery is a bullet. Picard is a very contemplative show. It will find a balance between the speed of Discovery and the nature of what Next Gen was, but I believe it will have its own rhythm. Without revealing too much about it, people have so many questions about Picard and what happened to him, and the idea we get to take time to answer those questions in the wake of the many, many things he's had to deal with in Next Gen is really exciting. 'More grounded' is not the right way to put it, because Season 2 of Discovery is also grounded. It will feel more… real-world? If that's the right way to put it."
