In celebration of Captain Picard Day on June 16th, the official Star Trek website has released the trailer for the sophomore season of Star Trek: Picard.
Star Trek: Picard season two trailer
The trailer opens with Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) at his vineyard, as seen in Picard’s first season… but he’s soon confronted with an older-looking incarnation of Q (John De Lancie).
From there, we see clips of some familiar faces – the cast of the first season, including Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill), Soji Asha (Isa Briones), Laris (Orla Brady), Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd), Chris Rios (Santiago Cabrera), and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan).
Voiceover narration intones that “time is broken,” but Picard states that they can save the future together…
But while that sounds reassuring, the clip closes with Seven waking up in a bed… without her distinctive Borg cranial implant! First Icheb and now this! Is nothing sacred?
As real as a hopped-up Q on Captain Picard Day
How will you be spending the rest of your Captain Picard Day?
If you have access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Paramount+, you can watch Star Trek: The Next Generation’s season seven episode twelve, “The Pegasus,” which introduces Captain Picard Day… and if that’s not enough Q for you, consider Lower Decks season one episode eight, “Veritas.”
The second season of Star Trek: Picard will be arriving for streaming on Paramount+ will be arriving in 2022. In the meantime, we can speculate about what exactly Q may be doing to the timeline.
