You can watch the Star Trek: Picard teaser trailer right now thanks to the fine folks over at CBS. The trailer can be viewed below:
In a move that is somewhat contrary to the high tech nature of Star Trek shows, the teaser mostly takes place in the relatively low tech vineyards of Chateau Picard – the land owned by Jean Luc’s family as seen in The Next Generation. A woman’s voice questions Picard’s lack of faith and why he ultimately left Starfleet before showing a close up of Patrick Stewart’s face.
The new series will take place a couple of decades after Picard’s last appearance in Nemesis. The destruction of the Romulan homeworld as referenced in the 2009 Abramsverse Star Trek impacted him deeply as he had been tirelessly working towards peace between the Federation and the Romulans. A round-up of most of the facts we know about the new show can be found here. We also know that Jonathan Frakes (who played first officer William T. Riker) has been involved in the production and will direct several episodes of the show.
