The trailer for Star Trek’s new show, Picard, is out. Patrick Stewart’s Picard has ditched Starfleet, but why? We have a lot of questions. Via Space:
You may recall, in “Star Trek: Generations” (1994) we learn that Jean-Luc’s young nephew René and his father Robert — Jean-Luc’s brother — were tragically killed in a fire in 2371 at the family home. Only Marie Picard, Robert’s wife, survived. This is obviously the Picard vineyard in La Barre, in the south-east corner of the Burgundy region of France, so we wonder if these events will be referenced and if Marie will appear in the show.
We’ve seen the Picard vineyard twice before, once in the epic “Star Trek: The Next Generation” episode “Family” (S04, E02), and then again in the outstanding, two-part series finale “All Good Things” (S07, E25) — the second part of which just happens to have aired 25 years ago today.
We assume the rescue armada mentioned here is the evacuation of the Romulan homeworld before it was destroyed by the Supernova of 2387. When was he promoted to Admiral? And why did he leave Starfleet?
Joining Stewart will be Santiago Cabrera (“Transformers: The Last Knight” and “Salvation”), Isa Briones (“American Crime Story”), Alison Pill (“Snowpiercer” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”), Harry Treadaway (“Penny Dreadful”), Michelle Hurd (“Hawaii Five-0”) and Evan Evagora (“Secret City”).
