CBS All Access has given fans a first look at Star Trek: Picard - the new series that will see Sir Patrick Stewart return to screens in the iconic role of Jean-Luc Picard. Starting out with a voice-over, the minute-long teaser trailer begins with a woman describing how Picard "commanded the greatest rescue armada in history," until some aftermath of that event led Picard to leave Starfleet behind.
All the while, images of a sweeping vineyard play, and a case of Chateau Picard wine comes into the foreground before a noticeably older Picard appears on the screen -- then, the trailer cuts. Largely shrouded in mystery, little has been leaked about the plot of the series to date, other than that the show will tell the story of the next chapter of Picard's life -- the tale coming to audiences many years after Stewart played Picard for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation in addition to appearing in four Star Trek films.
