Are you sitting down? Go do that before you watch this Picard trailer, because it’s going to knock you off your feet.
The first trailer for the CBS All Access Trek spin-off series starring Patrick Stewart is here, compliments of San Diego Comic-Con. And boy oh boy is it wall-to-wall with the most incredible fan service.
Data parts! Seven of Nine! A whole entire Borg cube! Plus that card game at the end. What is even happening here?! The only thing that’s missing — and it’s majorly disappointing, I’m not gonna lie — is Jean-Luc Picard’s dog, revealed in the series first poster.
That’s OK, though. There’s plenty of time to meet the pup, who apparently goes by the name “Number One” (omg). This trailer is everything a Trek fan could hope for — and more, really. There are so many surprises in there.
More to come too, apparently. Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis — who played Will Riker and Deanna Troi, respectively, on The Next Generation — will be making appearances on Picard. Though as you probably gathered from the trailer, there’s a new crew on board.
It’s a whole lot to process, and Star Trek Twitter is busy losing its shit. Please enjoy the excitement.
#Picard Seeing/feeling so much excitement for this. It’s like we are starving for leaders like this even if they are fictional. Just makes you wish that we could live up to the fiction.

Picard and more good, thoughtful Star Trek is just what our effed up world needs right now.

It’s been years since I paid any serious attention to Star Trek, but man, that Picard trailer reached straight into my brain and poked the nostalgia zone that loved The Next Generation (and led to me dressing up as Commander Riker one year for Halloween).

Picard is coming to CBS All Access sometime in 2020.
