Across seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation and four epic movies, Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise battled terrifying threats to the galaxy, from the Duras Sisters to the Borg. Now, 18 years after his last appearance in Star Trek Nemesis, Sir Patrick Stewart’s legendary character returns in Star Trek: Picard. Driven by the memories of his dear friend Data and accompanied by a brand new crew – as well as some much-loved familiar faces – he once again comes to the aid of the Federation in its hour of dire need……

Here’s precisely how much Sir Patrick Stewart missed Jean-Luc Picard and how much he missed playing one of Star Trek’s most iconic characters: “Not at all,” the former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor says, shaking his head side to side for emphasis. Really? “No, because after seven years of doing the series, I was more than ready to move on,” Stewart replies, warping into a measured, thoughtful, and detailed explanation. “The series was all-consuming. We shot 22 episodes a season, and I think [for] two seasons we actually shot 24 episodes. So, we only ever got five or six weeks off in the year. It took up all the rest of the time. And after seven years of that, I was going stir crazy for something else to do. Even though I loved…

a side pockets aside

There’s almost no better sound than that of Patrick Stewart laughing. And laugh he does, several times, and loudly, while sharing anecdotes about, of all things in the known galaxy, pockets in the pants of his Star Trek: Picard costumes. To quickly provide some context, the form-fitting uniforms Stewart almost always sported on Star Trek: The Next Generation and in the Next Generation features rarely ever included pockets. That changed in a major way on Picard, much to Stewart’s great pleasure and bemusement. “I wasn’t in a uniform,” Stewart explains. “I was wearing fairly contemporary clothes. Our costume designer [Christine Clark] has done a brilliant job in creating a 24th-Century civilian world. I mean, an ordinary, everyday working world. It’s sensational what she’s done. And one of the most important things…

past is prologue a profile of picard

Born in La Barre, France, on Earth in 2305, Jean-Luc Picard stands as one of the 24th Century’s most distinguished Federation citizens. Although his family owned a traditional vineyard, Picard set his sights on exploration and enrolled in Starfleet Academy. He initially demonstrated an undisciplined and arrogant attitude, but gradually harnessed those passionate traits to become an incredibly promising cadet. Soon after Picard’s graduation, a violent encounter with Nausicaans at Starbase Earhart left the freshly minted officer with a near-fatal wound to his heart. Doctors installed an artificial device in order to save Picard, yet the ordeal served as an important benchmark in the young man’s journey. Confronted by his own mortality and the realization that life was fragile, Picard began to cherish each moment and seize the opportunities that were…

“Seize the time… Live now!” Jean-Luc Picard once exhorted. “Make now always the most precious time. Now will never come again.” Alex Kurtzman has clearly heeded that call. Kurtzman is this generation’s Gene Roddenberry or Rick Berman – the creative brain tasked with guiding the Star Trek franchise into the future. He co-created and executive produces Star Trek: Discovery; Star Trek: Short Treks; two upcoming animated Trek shows; the forthcoming Section 31 saga; and, of course, Star Trek: Picard – all of which build on his previous Trek experience writing and producing the movies Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness. Here, Kurtzman addresses his ongoing Treks and takes a deep dive into Picard, from collaborating with Sir Patrick Stewart to the prospect of a second season, and much more… Star…

Isa Briones, Star Trek: Picard’s leading lady, hails from a family of performers. Her father is Jon Jon Briones, best known for the stage musical Miss Saigon, while her mother, Megan Johnson Briones, is an actress and singer who has performed concerts all over the world. Then there’s her younger brother, Teo, who’s already amassed nearly 20 film and television credits. So, it’s no surprise to hear 21-year-old Isa – who counts among her own credits a recent year-long run in the touring version of the blockbuster stage show, Hamilton: An American Musical, as well as the films Takers and Lonely Boy, plus an episode of American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace – characterize her own desire to act and sing as something just short of destiny. “Growing up…
