The show, which is the eighth Star Trek series, will include 10-episodes –  debuting Thursday, February 16, 2023, exclusively on Paramount Plus, with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays thereafter.

The trailer begins with a distressed call from Picard’s former flame, Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), who says, ‘This message is for Admiral Jean-Luc Picard.’

Picard is seen taking out the iconic Starfleet emblem pin and examining it, as Crusher says, ‘We need your help.’

We see the Starfleet headquarters imploding, as Picard is heard saying, ‘I need to find a ship.’

‘We need to find a ship,’ his old friend Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) tells him as they share a drink in an intergalactic bar.

Picard insists, ‘Now, I can’t ask you to put yourself in danger,’ which is intercut with some quite dangerous scenes from the show.

Riker just smiles at Picard and says, ‘Since when?’ with a laugh, as we get glimpses of beloved returning characters such as Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd), Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton), Dr. Crusher and Worf (Michael Dorn).

Riker tells Picard, ‘Jean-Luc, wherever you go, we go,’ as we get a glimpse at Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), as Riker sees a ship, adding, ‘Hello, beautiful.’

Jean-Luc asks, ‘Permission to come aboard, Commander?’ as the doors open and Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) is waiting.

‘Permission granted, sirs. Welcome to the Titan,’ she says, as Picard adds, ‘Why don’t you do us the honor, Commander?’

 ‘Engage,’ Seven of Nine says as the Titan takes off, which brings the trailer to an end.

 For those who missed the live stream for the Star Trek Day celebration, the conversations will be available to stream on-demand on Paramount Plus.
