Today is the CBS Upfront presentation. This is the time when networks proudly display their next seasons of shows to advertisers in New York City. During the CBS presentation this afternoon, industry folks on the ground have reported that a brief clip of Sir Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard was shown to the advertisers. The moment was described on social media.

#StarTrek: Picard will stream exclusively on @CBSAllAccess in the United States, on Amazon #PrimeVideo in more than 200 countries and territories and in Canada on Bell Media’s @SpaceChannel and OTT service @CraveCanada. @StarTrekCBS @primevideouk #StarTrekPicard http://bit.ly/STPicardTitle
The title sequence shown in the Instagram post above was used in the Upfront presentation. Star Trek: Picard appears to be the official title, however in March director Hanelle Culpepper said Star Trek: Picard is not the title, and Stewart has said that they are trying to keep as many of the details a secret as possible, presumedly for a later reveal, likely for San Diego Comic-Con in July.
EDIT: TrekMovie confirmed with CBS that Star Trek: Picard is the official title.
Hmmm @CBS upfront had a clip (or probably something made just for upfront) of "Star Trek: Picard" (what they called it) with a Starfleet officer asking Jean-Luc, "May I have your name, please, sir?" as Picard appears incredulous. @StarTrek

While this image isn’t much, we can observe a few things. The first, as expected Picard is not in uniform, he looks rather professorial here, perhaps teaching at the academy? Second we can see what look to be pretty standard 24th century uniforms in the background, they look like they could be red (in the background) and gold versions of the cadet uniforms similar to those seen in TNG “The First Duty.”
Star Trek: Picard coming in late-2019
Star Trek: Picard is expected to be released late this year, it will be on CBS All Access in the USA, Space and Crave in Canada, and on Amazon Prime Video for the rest of the world.
