Star Trek Promo Examines What Makes Patrick Stewart's Picard So Iconic
Since his debut at the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise over 30 years ago in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Captain Jean-Luc Picard has led the venerable Star Trek franchise beyond the legacy of the original series and become one of the most iconic, fan-favorite characters in all of science fiction.
As principal photography continues on CBS All Access' upcoming Star Trek: Picard, featuring star Patrick Stewart's eagerly anticipated return as the legendary Starfleet officer, the network has released a promo spotlighting the character's enduring impact through interviews with the cast and crew of Star Trek: Discovery.
Interspersed with clips of the character's greatest moments across the seven-season run of The Next Generation, executive producer and co-showrunner Alex Kurtzman leads the look back on Picard's unwavering sense of duty, even when pitted against his Starfleet superiors.
Filming on Star Trek: Picardofficially began last month for what is expected to be a ten-episode first season. The show will take place nearly 20 years after the character was last seen in 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis.
Star Trek: Picard stars Patrick Stewart, Santiago Cabrera Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Isa Briones. The series is set to debut later this year on CBS All Access.
