Patrick Stewart to Return as Jean-Luc Picard in New ‘Star Trek’ Series

Patrick Stewart is making a comeback as his iconic character Jean-Luc Picard in the upcoming “Star Trek” series for CBS All Access, the star said on Saturday.

Stewart made the announcement in a surprise showing at the Las Vegas “Star Trek” Convention, and shared it soon after on Twitter.

“I will always be very proud to have been a part of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation,’ but when we wrapped that final movie in the spring of 2002, I truly felt my time with ‘Star Trek’ had run its natural course,” Stewart said. “It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over.”

While i’m still fully on-board the title is maybe a little uninspiring.

Cannae wait. Captain Picard Day! The kids in that all grown up and helping Picard??

That woman in need is clearly some sort of Borg/Picard/Locutus offspring or Datas lovechild.

not watched the trailer yet do it/ should i watch next generation first?

i caved and watched the trailer.

They retconned the start of the last movie franchise. Beautiful.

You talking about Data?

Both that Data appears to be dismantled (the original was blown up at the end of nemesis, right?) instead of captain of the enterprise. And it doesn’t sound like picard retired from starfleet and became federation ambassador to vulcan.

That means Eric Bana can turn up as Romulan freighter captain and generally nice guy Nemo. He should be fine as long as no one makes him a promise and he comes back to find his planet and family destroyed.

Not going to lie, this has got me very excited!

Very excited inedeed. Intigued for the newer characters more so than seeing old Picard struggling to get about.

Nearly here.
Imagine if this was basically the “All Good Things Episode” just playing out as future Picard! That be disapointing.

might have to rewatch all good things now…thanks…

I really hope i a) enjoy it and b) enjoy reading the things people complain about that make it THE WURST THING EVAR.

But then i would happily watch a show where Picard lectured cadets on his missions and it’s effectively him providing in-character commentary to old TNG episodes.

Think Il watch all good things now that I have mentioned it.
I am sure there will be loads of haters. I am optimistic.

Ok Mind blown!! Especially the end! Added spoiler below for discussion later! much discussion. Enjoyed the first episode. Not explosive start, but set the scene nicely with a little bit of action.

So wtf is are the Romulans doing on a Borg cube? Perhaps they just using it as a sort of base since they lost their homeworld. Is Borg technology in play?

This whole Data daughter thing is really interesting! really looking forward to seeing how they take that on.

The Romulan borg cube, no idea how or why, but I want to know why.

The stuff that Nero modified his ship with before travelling back in the first of the jj abrams movies was meant to be borg tech, and that ties in with their star destroying their empire and whatnot.

loved it.
