The stakes are high when Jean-Luc and his crew travel to the past.

After an excruciating wait – season 1 premiered in early 2020 – Star Trek: Picard is finally back with new episodes.

The acclaimed series sees Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he first played on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The show follows the character into the next chapter of his life as he grapples with his legacy.

Star Trek: Picard kicks off in 2399 with Picard retired from Starfleet. He finds a new purpose when he is visited by the apparent daughter of Data, a synthetic being or synth. Over the course of season 1, the former Starfleet admiral and his crew fight for the synths' right to exist, culminating in a dramatic finale.

Now, Picard has a new mission: he must journey into the past.
