Paramount “Star Trek” series starring Patrick Stewart was likewise restored for Season 3 ahead of the February, 2022 season best
” Star Trek: Picard” has actually been restored for a 3rd season well ahead of the February, 2022, launch of Season 2. The early renewal was revealed throughout Paramount’s “Star Trek Day” celebrations.
And when “Picard” Season 2 gets here, it’s going pensively where a lots of other “Trek” stories have actually preceded: Back in time. Which, obviously, is all Q’s fault. See on your own in the very first trailer, which introduced Wednesday, today at the top of the page.
As we see in the trailer, following the (honestly bonkers) occasions of “Picard” Season 1, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) has actually gone back to his swank household vineyards in France. Whatever peace he looks for is disrupted by the return of Q (John de Lancie), the supreme interdimensional giant who has actually plagued Picard given that the really first episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
Back as soon as again to subject Jean-Luc to the continuous trial of humankind’s worth, Q snaps his fingers and (as far as we can inform) modifications history so that the Federation is now a “totalitarian problem.” Fortunately, Picard and his good friends from Season 1– Agnes Jurati (Alison Pill), Elnor (Evan Evagora), Raffi (Michelle Hurd), Chris Rios (Santiago Cabrera) and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan)– keep all their memories from the initial timeline. They team up to take a trip back to the point of divergence and conserve the future.
Which if you understand anything about “Trek” tradition, then you understand this is a remarkably typical “Star Trek” plot. “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.” Or “Deep Space Nine,” which had the groundbreaking two-part episode “Past Tense.” Oh, and “Star Trek Enterprise” had an entire thing where the program’s primary bad guys returned in time to assist Nazi Germany win World War II, and another where the team wound up back in the 1990 s.
Oh, likewise, there’s “Star Trek: First Contact,” which has Picard’s Enterprise required back to the year 2063 to stop the Borg from altering history so that the Federation is changed by the Borg cumulative. Which may be why Picard needs to discover the Borg Queen for aid returning to the past. While the casting of Annie Wershing in that function was quite cool, we have no concept how much she’ll really appear, because the trailer sure makes it look like the bulk of Picard takes location back in the 21 st century.
Oh right, I forgot to include that the point of divergence is obviously someplace in Los Angeles of the 2020 s, which feels unusual understanding what we understand about the “Star Trek” variation of 21 st century history, however is quite terrific for a group of stars who get to use regular individuals clothing rather of area clothing for a couple of episodes.
Anyway, if you’re like me, you’re most likely going to begin feeling stress and anxiety over what does and what does not wind up being retconned out of canon. (Hands off the Bell Riots, people.) We’ll fret about that in February. In the meantime, indulge in the splendor of a brand-new season of “Star Trek: Picard.”
