CBS All-Access has released the key art for the high-profile series Star Trek: Picard and the images hint that this new iteration of the Star Trek brand will (at least initially) present a grounded tale instead of embracing on planet-hopping quest measured in star dates and light years. It's very fitting, as fans can see Picard standing in a cornfield, alongside his loyal dog; which has a cute little Star Trek collar. The poster features Patrick Stewart returning as Jean-Luc Picard, in what appears to be the outskirts of the Picard family vineyards, alongside a pit bull.
IO9 notes that the emblem itself appears to be emblazoned with "No. 1", referencing Starfleet terminology for a ship's first officer as well as an ongoing tribute to Number One, a character who originally appeared in the original scratched "Star Trek" pilot. There's already one (admittedly quite good!) Star Trek show on now - do we really need another one? If they kill the dog, this will be the worst Star Trek. The first teaser for Star Trek: Picard made its premiere back in May, and it set the tone for what's to come with its series.
Stewart will join his co-stars next week to discuss the show.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Alex Kurtzman - who co-wrote the "Star Trek" reboot and oversees development of the series - said "Picard" will pick up after the "dissolution of the Romulan Empire".
