Jean Luc Picard follows in the footsteps of Jonathan Archer and adopts a “Captains Dog”
Before CBS All Access takes over this years SDCC, the studio has jumped ahead of the pack by unveiling the first character poster for the highly anticipated new series Star Trek: Picard. Starring Patrick Stewart who reprises his iconic role as Jean Luc Picard, the series has promised to offer fans a very different perspective on the former Captain of the USS Enterprise.
With the recent teaser trailer revealing very little about the plot of the series, Star Trek fans of all ages will be hoping for some big announcements when the “Enter the Star Trek Universe” panel kicks off at SDCC on Saturday 20th July in Hall H. Patrick Stewart has already been confirmed to be in attendance alongside executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman and Heather Kadin.
However, fans won’t have to wait that long to get their first look at the awesome new poster which reveals the former Captain of the Enterprise standing at the threshold of the Picard family vineyard alongside a new trusty companion. It seems that our beloved Jean Luc has followed in the footsteps of his predecessor Captain Jonathan Archer and adopted a pooch for his adventures after life in the captain’s chair.
Whether this companion has a pivotal role to play in the series remains to be seen, but with plot details expected to emerge from the aforementioned SDCC panel next week, we may know a little more about the “Captains Dog” ahead of the series’ premiere on Amazon Prime this Autumn.
Star Trek: Picard will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Patrick Stewart, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers, with Chabon serving as showrunner. Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) will serve as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer as supervising producer.
