New York Comic Con proved especially prosperous for "Star Trek" fans, as the first teaser trailer for "Star Trek: Discovery" season three and a brand new look at "Star Trek: Picard" were unveiled during Saturday's panel.

The a few-moment clip gave admirers a peek into the daily life that awaits the now-retired Admiral Jean-Luc Picard, who - though biding time to his vineyard alongside his pet dog, Range A person, named for his former initially officer - finds himself embarking on an unauthorized mission at the behest of somebody from his former existence. They'll be joined by Star Trek: Voyager's Jeri Ryan and Next Generation's Brent Spiner, who will reprise their respective roles as Seven of Nine and Data.

The new Star Trek: Picard teaser revealed a first look of Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard with old friend and colleague Jonathan Frakes as William Riker.

Although the trailer and images have been dropped, Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 has not yet been given an official premiere date. "Believe me, I know better", Riker laughingly answers.

All through the panel, cast and demonstrate-runners had been requested whether the series would be a lot more than just a homecoming for the people. "We didn't want it to be, 'Oh, there's Riker!'"

Star Trek: Picard, which begins its 10-episode run on CBS All Access on January 23rd, 2020, opens roughly two decades after the events featured at the end of The Next Generation.

In addition, govt producer Alex Kurtzman sees the series - and the entire franchise - as a way of addressing problems that exist in today's environment. "We're in the middle of a massive immigration conversation right now, and we are very proud to say we're diving head-first into that and using "Trek' to explore it from all points of view". The titular ship jumped a full 930 years into the future, an era of the Star Trek timeline that has never been explored before now. "So the question becomes: What has happened to him in that period of time?" "Sometimes it's ugly, and sometimes it's hurtful, but duty calls". Written by Michael Chabon and directed by Mark Pellington, "Q&A" follows Ensign Spock's (Ethan Peck) first day aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, which doesn't go as planned when he and Number One (Rebecca Romijn) are unexpectedly stuck together in a turbo lift.
