"The true final frontier is time," we hear Picard say. "Time can turn even our most impulsive, our most ill-considered actions, into history. What we do in a crisis often weighs upon us less heavily than what we wish we had done. What could have been."
The camera flies through Picard's study before finally settling on a chess board, with a deck of cards upon it. The Queen of Hearts lays face up.
Cards hold a special place in the Trek universe, and folks undoubtedly will sift through that one for a while. But all you need to do is finish the trailer. The card begins to dissolve, until only the Q remains. And in comes the voice of John de Lancie, who played Q on The Next Generation.
"The trial never ends," we hear him say.
The trailer says to expect Season 2 of Star Trek: Picard in 2022.
Season 1 of Star Trek: Picard is available on Paramount+, along with the rest of the non-Kelvin Trek universe. Paramount+ costs $5.99 a month if you don't mind advertising with your Trek, or $9.99 a month if you want to get rid of ads. (The $5.99-a-month option will be replaced in June by a $4.99 option that doesn't include a live stream of your local CBS affiliate.)
