FIRST LOOK at Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard in new Star Trek series

May 16th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Well, we have a title and first look at Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard in the upcoming, em, Picard series from CBS.

At the upfront presentation earlier today Kate Arthur managed to grab the image above of the actor’s return to the iconic role from Star Trek: The Next Generation and it looks like he’s wearing a DS9 era outfit with classic TNG uniforms in the background.

The upfront presentation is where studios show new shows to advertisers in New York and CBS were showing the latest instalment in the Trek universe.

The scene where the above image was grabbed has Picard at a Starfleet Academy checkpoint and a young person behind it asks for his name at which point he looks at her incredulously…

The show is expected to drop later this year and the official Trek social media released the below teaser of the title although rumours are this is not the show’s final title.

Jean-Luc is back… but what do you all think?

Let me know in all the usual ways.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
