Now Playing: Star Trek: The History of Jean-Luc Picard

CBS All Access' upcoming Picard series got a brand new poster teasing the addition of one critical member to the cast: Jean Luc's new "No. 1," a dog who apparently helps the retired Starfleet admiral tend to his retirement vineyard. The poster was tweeted out by none other than Sir Patrick Stewart himself. You can check it out below, or see a version in motion further below.

The dog's name remains a mystery, but his rank was spotted by eagle-eyed fans on the Starfleet emblem hanging from his collar.

The vineyard imagery comes as no surprise to anyone who watched the first teaser trailer, released back in May. We don't have many details about the plot as of yet, but from what we can tell, there was an incident--"the unimaginable"--that drove Jean Luc into retirement after a majorly heroic act.

Now, people are left wondering what the Admiral has been up to since his departure from Starfleet. Hopefully not just making wine--though, let's be honest, we'd definitely watch that show, too. It's set approximately 20 years after the finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation, so there is plenty of room to explore and doubtlessly, plenty of stories to tell about Chateau Picard or otherwise.

Picard is expected to air on CBS All Access at the end of this year under the direction of showrunner and acclaimed novelist Michael Chabon.

After watching the teaser again, I feel like this is going to be about growing grapes and making wine.

@snugglebear:

If you have internet access and a credit card you can watch the show through CBS All Access once it's available. Wait until all of the episodes have dropped, subscribe for less than $10 for a month, watch all of the episodes, and then cancel it. Or, if you find you enjoy enough of the app's content to justify it, maintain the subscription.

While I agree that some apps are of dubious value for ongoing subscription, if there is a show or two you really want to see, the value of doing a short term subscription, binging the show and then cancelling, is favorable.

@izraal: Wouldn't do All Access. The big 3 networks have been controlling the broadcast airwaves for decades and Im not planning on encouraging CBS to charge people for shows, now. I am NOT proposing piracy or use of torrent sites or whatever. Im not, for sure.

@snugglebear: you’re really just rationalising your attempt to watch it without paying for it. I think that’s pretty bad, honestly, for a show you actually support.

@snugglebear: I definitely agree, better to pay for one month, binge the shows you want to see, and then cancel.
