Actor Patrick Stewart will be reprising his role of Jean Luc Picard, the captain of the starship USS Enterprise-D, in his own series.

The title of Star Trek: Picard, was announced in October 2018 and fans have been chomping at the bit for more details ever since.


But finally, Trekkies or Trekkers, depending on when you joined the fandom, are getting a sneak peek of the highly anticipated series, courtesy of "leaked" set photos.

David Nevins, orginally from Showtime, represented CBS as its chief creative officer for Wednesday's upfronts—the gathering in which television networks woo advertisers to buy commercial airtime "up front" or before the start of a TV season.

During his presentation, he teased the audience with a clip of Stewart as Picard from the set of his new series.

If you want to brush up on all things Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation complete series is available here.

A photo from that moment made the rounds on Twitter and got fans theorizing on what might be happening in the scene.

The tweeted photo did not leave much to go on, but people shared their thoughts on Stewart's costume and the curious yellow shoulder next to him.




Pittsburgh Post-Gazette TV critic Rob Owen shared his observation.

The single photo sparked many thoughts and comments on the thread, and more speculation is expected.


An additional photo piqued fans' interest on the internet. This time, the stealth shot was captured by attendees at a business conference in Anaheim, CA.

In the top left quadrant of the group of photos from the tweet below, Stewart can be seen in his character's uniform from the set of Star Trek: Picard.

Could you make out what might be happening?

While it is difficult to point out any significant details for Star Trek fans, Newsweek noted that eagle-eyed fans on a Star Trek subreddit pointed out that the missing rank pips at the collars of some of the costumes indicate that the people in the scene are cadets as opposed to Starfleet veterans.

Fans assumed the series will focus on Picard inspiring a new team of leaders as an instructor at Starfleet Academy.

CBS is skimping on plot points, but fans could enjoy this lovely new graphic and logo.


Stewart finished his TV journey as Picard when Star Trek: The Next Generation wrapped up with the final airing on May 23, 1994.

However, he did make appearances in the feature films, Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)—which marked his last turn as the character.

Little did fans know it they would not see the last of Picard.

Stewart is also serving as an executive producer along with Alex Kurtzman, the creator of Star Trek: Discovery. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon will serve as executive producer and writer for the new series.

The show's premise remains unknown, but CNET did confirm Picard will take place in 2399, two decades after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis.

Star Trek: Picard will be available to stream on CBS All Access at the end of the year.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
