CBS All Access: “Star Trek: Picard” SDCC Trailer (Airing 2020)

As you’ve likely determined, the reveals from the SDCC 2019 event have been keeping me busy with our Pop Culture side of the fence and since there was so much, I venture to guess that I will be posting a lot more content in the days that follow it. Yesterday, CBS All Access delivered the first full trailer for the 2020 airing “Star Trek: Picard” series. As you know, this is the exclusive streaming service from the popular network and has so far given us series such as “Star Trek: Discovery” and “The Twilight Zone”. Now let’s watch yon trailer, review the premise and casting before I add in any additional editorial notions.

The Premise: The series is set 20 years after Jean-Luc Picard’s last appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), and finds the character deeply affected by the destruction of Romulus as depicted in the film Star Trek (2009).

The Cast/Characters:
Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard
Santiago Cabrera as the pilot of Picard’s ship
Michelle Hurd as a former intelligence officer
Evan Evagora
Alison Pill
Harry Treadaway
Isa Briones
Brent Spiner as Data
Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine
Jonathan Del Arco as Hugh
Jonathan Frakes as William Riker
Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that I liked this trailer a lot and the story is on the interesting side. I’ve always enjoyed Picard as a character but since I don’t have the CBS All Access service and likely will not be getting it any time soon it looks like I am going to miss this show unless it makes its way to something else. Yesterday, Marvel Studios announced their upcoming slate of programs and films and fans are going to get 4 series tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe of films on their Disney+ service AND they will have “The Mandalorian” so there is no way that I am missing out on that one. Maybe once it runs in full I will subscribe and binge watch everything I missed. With the Marvel Netflix shows all being cancelled I might have some time for that angle. What did you readers think? Chime in down below.
