What will happen in Star Trek: Picard on Amazon?
Star Trek: Picard will see Sir Patrick Stewart back once again as Jean-Luc Picard.
Now a retired Admiral, he will be thrown back into the world of space politics.
Show runner Alex Kurtzman revealed to The Hollywood Reporter this will happen based off of the impact of destruction of Romulus has on Picard.
He said: “Picard’s life was radically altered by the dissolution of the Romulan Empire.”
Fans of the show will know this comes from Picard’s long history with the Romulans who he was in opposition with for most of his career.
The new series is also expected to look very different to previous iterations of the world of Star Trek after Stewart made two distinct requests.
He told The Graham Norton Show: “Star Trek was wonderful, and it changed my life and my career, but I have said it all and there is nothing more to say.
“[But] I didn’t just want to say, ‘No. Pass,’ so I went to the meeting to explain to them face-to-face why I couldn’t do it.
“And then they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.”
He revealed to the chat show host this was about his request for no uniform and no Enterprise in the new show.
