During the Star Trek Universe panel at New York Comic Con a new trailer for Star Trek: Picard was shown, in addition the premiere date for the new series was made official.
Work on the series started despite expectations that Patrick Stewart would never reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard, executive producer Alex Kurtzman said.
“We were sitting in a room, we were actually doing some stuff and said, ‘wouldn’t it be fun to do one of the Short Treks about Picard,’ and we said, ‘A Short Trek would be great, but wouldn’t it be great to bring him back?’”
Stewart turned down the idea in the initial meeting before finding himself curious about the concept; a request for more details led to the creation of a 35-page document from writer and executive producer Michael Chabon, which got him to sign on.

This action figure is a collectable-grade posable model with over 50 points of articulation. The build quality and paint finish are everything you’d expect from our partners at Bandai. They’ve captured features like the Imperialis on his breastplate and distinctive Mk X faceplate in crisp detail while remaining faithful to everything that makes a Space Marine instantly recognisable.
