After months of referring to the Star Trek Picard spin-off as the Star Trek Picard spin-off, CBS has finally revealed the official name of the Stark Trek Picard spin-off.
So what is it called? Star Trek: The Future Generation? Star Trek: Destiny? Star Trek: Engage? No, it’s called Star Trek: Picard.
The title was announced at the CBS and CBS All Access Upfronts presentation, where they also revealed the first official still from the show: Sir Patrick Stewart wearing a jacket and a turtleneck.
Unfortunately, the still hasn’t been officially released yet so we can’t cover it without getting in trouble, but you’re really not missing out on much.
Sir Patrick’s The Next Generation co-star Jonathan Frakes will direct some episodes, while one of Discovery’s directors, Hanelle Culpepper, will oversee the first two. This will make her the first woman in the franchise’s 50+ year history to direct the launch of a Trek installment.
Frakes has previously said that the show is like a “10-episode movie”, while the main man himself has teased that it could run for at least three seasons.
Meanwhile, a UK broadcaster for the show has been announced. Unfortunately, unlike the rest of the franchise, Netflix is not that broadcaster.
