Star Trek: Picard
Season 1: 10 episodes. January 2020 release.
Little has been revealed about the plot details of show, but it will be set roughly 20 years after Star Trek Nemesis, which places it in the year 2399. Stewart has said that the show will be quite different, and it is not a Next Generation revival. Speaking in Las Vegas in 2018 he said:
He may not, and I stress may not, be a captain anymore. He may not be the Jean-Luc that you recognize and know so well. It may be a very different individual. Someone who has been changed by his experiences.
It will be, I promise you, I guarantee it, something very, very different. It will come to you with the same passion, and determination and love of the material and love of our followers and our fans, exactly as we had it before.
Executive producer Alex Kurtman has said that “Picard’s life was radically altered by the dissolution of the Romulan Empire.”
