Star Trek: Picard | Introduction & Canon Catch-Up

Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) have dropped out of warp to give their initial thoughts on what’s to come and what has come with the upcoming Star Trek: Picard.

The two discuss everything known about the returning characters and storylines for the highly-anticipated new Star Trek series. They break down Jean-Luc Picard as a captain and person, create a list of seminal Picard-starring episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and go in-depth on the menace of the Borg and its complicated history across Trek.

Jess and Mike will be back next week with a recap of all six Short Treks that have aired on CBS All Access from October through January. The week after, they’ll return to Picard, giving one final preview of what we know about the new series before its premiere on January 23.

About Star Trek: Picard …

CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Picard featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven years on Star Trek: The Next Generation and across several feature films. Taking place 20 years after Picard’s last appearance and seemingly estranged from Starfleet, a mysterious visitor turns his life upside-down and starts a journey that kickstarts a brand-new chapter in his life.

Alongside Stewart, Star Trek: Picard also stars Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora. It will also feature appearances from previous Star Trek actors and characters, including Brent Spiner as Data, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, Jonathan Del Arco as Hugh, Jonathan Frakes as William Riker, and Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi. Star Trek: Picard airs weekly on CBS All Access in the United States and is distributed concurrently internationally by CBS Studios International on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories and in Canada on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and OTT service Crave.
