While Star Trek Discovery is jumping ahead 930 years to the future, Star Trek: Picard will be reaching back into the past by bringing back one of the most respected captains that Starfleet has ever seen.

But that all changes when a young woman stumbles onto his property and begs him for help.

That means asking some old friends for help and advice. Watch the Star Trek: Picard trailer below. Read More »
