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.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
