CBS All Access has released the key art for the high-end series Star Trek: Picard and the images suggest that this new iteration of the Star Trek (At least initially), the brand will present a story instead of the usual quest to conquer the planet.
The picture (below) shows a contemplative, Jean-Luc Picard, dressed in particular in a civilian suit in place of his familiar Starfleet uniform, standing at the edge of a vineyard that s & # 39; 39, extends to the horizon. The sky is majestically inflamed by the setting sun and the sparkling towers of neighboring cities and the horizon seems to invite adventure but Picard does not notice or do not care. Instead, his dejected gaze is stuck on the ground or, more likely, on the memories he sees dancing in the dust.

Sure Star Trek: the new generation, Picard has already visited the vineyard of his family in France and it is probably the same. (Say, could it be the Eiffel Tower in the distance?) The trailer for the series suggests that Picard left Starfleet and is now in a very different place, both personally and professionally. Picard also has a canine companion with a pretty Starfleet badge on his collar (hopefully he also has a name inspired by the Enterprise, such as "Bones" or "Lt. Woof").
A second piece of key art (right) bears the same Starfleet insignia but this time featured in vineyard plantations, evoking crop circles and other farmland symbols associated with UFO investigations (and Mr. Night Shyamalan signs). A slogan floats in the cloudy sky above the symbol: "The end is only the beginning."
While the vineyard represents a golden opportunity for the Star Trek braintrust (seven words: The grapes of the Wraith of Khan) but I hope the series will bring Picard back into the space where he will do his best. No official date has yet been announced for the first of the series.
Star Trek: Picard will also be performed by Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera and Harry Treadaway. The series debuted at Comic-Con International in San Diego on July 20 (Hall H, 11:30 am) as part of a vast multi-franchise Star Trek presentation. The Picard component will include the seven announced cast members as well as executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman and Heather Kadin. Chabon was recently named the showrunner of the project.
The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman's Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Hanelle Culpepper will direct the first two episodes of the series.
