Now Playing: Star Trek: Picard, Discovery Season 3, Lower Decks Panel Reactions - SDCC 2019

It seems Jean-Luc Picard won't spend the entirety of his new Star Trek series hanging out in France, making wine. A new set of photos out of the Star Trek: Picard panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 take the legendary captain back to space and give more of a look at what we can expect when the series goes to warp later this year.

Before Comic-Con, we knew precious little about the new Picard series, which will air exclusively on CBS's streaming service, CBS All Access, just like Star Trek: Discovery and the upcoming animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks. Picard was the captain from Star Trek: The Next Generation and four Star Trek movies that followed it, played by Patrick Stewart. We last saw the character back in 2004 in Star Trek: Nemesis when he was still a captain.

The Enterprise crew from Star Trek: TNG more or less disbanded at that point, but the panel at Comic-Con revealed that Picard will feature several Star Trek alumni, including Brent Spiner (Data on TNG), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager), Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh on TNG), Jonathan Frakes (Will Riker on TNG), and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi on TNG). The panel also saw the release of a new trailer for Star Trek: Picard.

A teaser trailer released in May for Picard explained that Picard went on to become an admiral in Starfleet before retiring. The teaser's voice-over narration states that Picard led the "largest rescue armada" in Federation history 15 years before the show, and apparently saved a lot of lives in doing so. But something tragic also happened during that event, which resulted in Picard abandoning the life of an explorer for a simpler, more terrestrial existence. It's a retirement we saw hinted at back during the series finale of TNG, "All Good Things," which showed a flash-forward of Picard tending his family's vineyard in France.
