'Star Trek: Picard' trailer shows Patrick Stewart's Jean-Luc enjoying life in retirement

After a long wait, the first teaser trailer for the spin-off series, 'Star Trek: Picard' is here.

The upcoming CBS All Access show revolves around Patrick Stewart who plays the iconic role of Jean-Luc Picard. Stewart previously played Picard for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation. And 'Star Trek: Picard' will follow his character into the next chapter of his life. 

The trailer opens with a quaint scene of a vineyard, as sunlight glimmers through water that flows from an iron hand pump. Following that, the trailer reveals a relaxed Picard enjoying his retirement at his family’s Chateau Picard vineyard in France. 


A voice in the background meanwhile speaks, "Fifteen years ago, today, you led us out of the darkness. You commanded the greatest rescue armada in history. Then, the unimaginable. What did that cost you? Your faith? Your faith in us? Your faith in yourself? Tell us, why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?"

Following the voiceover, we finally get to see the man himself. One might recall, in Star Trek: Generations (1994), we got to know that Picard's nephew Rene and his father Robert, who was Picard's brother were killed in a fire in 2371. The only survivor was Marie Picard, Robert's wife. The vineyard that is showcased in the trailer looks a lot like the Picard vineyard that is situated in La Barre, in the south-east corner of the Burgundy region of France. This makes us wonder if these events will all be referenced in the new series and if Marie will make an appearance this season. 

This is not the first time we have seen the Picard vineyard. Previously the vineyard has appeared once in Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Family" (S04, E02), and then once again in the two-part series finale of All Good Things, which aired 25 years ago. 

The streaming company confirmed the rest of Stewart’s co-stars Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway will join him in this series. 


Apart from the trailer, the series also revealed its first poster along with the trailer. The release date for 'Star Trek: Picard' is not yet revealed.
