The first trailer for Star Trek: Picard shows Sir Patrick Stewart reprising one of his most famous roles.

Sir Patrick is returning as Jean-Luc Picard, a character he first played in 1987.

A trailer for the series premiered during Comic-Con.


Picard will see Sir Patrick’s revered character, who first appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation, during the next chapter of his life, living on the family vineyard.

"I tried to belong here, but it never truly felt like home," the character says.

Picard will star Isa Briones as a young woman named Daj, who appears in the trailer pleading for Picard’s help.

The captain is later seen at Starfleet, telling someone: “If she is who I think she is, she is in serious danger.”

During the panel inside Hall H of San Diego Convention Centre, it was announced Star Trek: The Next Generation stars Brent Spiner and Jonathan Del Arco will appear in Picard.

Star Trek: Voyager’s Jeri Ryan will also star.

Picard will air exclusively in the UK on Amazon Prime Video in 2020.
