“Welcome to the street not taken,” says a Trek fan favourite within the Season 2 premiere of Star Trek: Picard. That greeting units up a season that takes Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart)—in his new artificial physique—and the La Sirena crew again to Earth in 2024 for a selection that might save the galaxy’s future…or destroy it.
Right here’s what and who to count on from these subsequent 10 episodes.
An outdated frenemy resurfaces
Picard’s perennially untrustworthy adversary Q (John de Lancie) has one thing up his sleeve for our hero. “What precisely Q is planning for Jean-Luc is the overarching thriller of the season,” co-showrunner Terry Matalas says.
Whoopi Goldberg returns as Guinan
Picard’s alien counselor/bartender (final seen within the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis) has a pivotal function within the story, dishing out beneficial recommendation to her outdated good friend. Most significantly: “Your solutions will not be within the stars and so they by no means have been.” Hmmm.
The previous presents a private problem
“Touring again to our century, our previous, will power Picard to reconcile with the traumas of his personal,” Matalas hints. “Not on a regular basis journey this season is bodily. A few of it’s inside as properly.”
