We are about a month out from the January 23rd series premiere of Star Trek: Picard. The wait has been agonizing. However, a new teaser dropped today that expands the mystery of the series and it will certainly enhance your anticipation.

In the new teaser for Star Trek: Picard, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) says “I was haunted by my past. But now, I have a mission. I will do what needs to be done.” We see him in what may be a flashback. He is on what I think is Enterprise’s Ten Forward while a planet burns outside the windows. Is the planet Romulus? Or is it Mars? I only say Mars because the episode of Star Trek: Short Treks that is to be a prequel of sorts to Star Trek: Picard and is being released before the new series premieres is called “Children of Mars“.

Then we see a series of edge of your seat footage including badass 7 of 9 walking and blasting two phasers, Picard stating he’s looking for “someone who has nowhere else to help her” – and we see that someone, Dahj (Isa Briones), fighting for her life. We also see the Borg, a Romulan (who honestly looks like he could be from Rivendell), a space battle and a whole slew of familiar characters ending with Riker (Jonathan Frakes) asking his former captain, “What have you gotten yourself into, Jean-Luc.”

Check out the Star Trek: Picard teaser below and set your internal phasers to excitement!
