Have you seen the trailer for the new show Star Trek: Picard? According to Gizmodo, the new series will take place after the events of J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film Star Trek. Picard will feature Patrick Stewart reprising his role as the legendary Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Take a look at what we know about Picard’s timeline in the world of Star Trek.
The Next Generation
Recently, CBS All Access has been hyping up its upcoming TV show Star Trek: Picard with a clever YouTube trailer. The teaser for Picard features a reflective Patrick Stewart adjusting to life after retiring from Starfleet. During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Star Trek producer Alex Kurtzman announced that the show will take place after the “dissolution of the Romulan Empire.” On August 4, 2018, Stewart confirmed that Picard will occur almost 20 years after The Next Generation, and a decade after Nemesis.
Picard will be the first Star Trek installment that will travel to the close of the 24th century. So far, no other Star Trek movie or TV show has ventured that far into the future. While Star Trek: Nemesis was set in 2379, Picard will allegedly pick up the storyline in 2399. This means that the show will reportedly begin 20 years after Captain Jean-Luc Picard was shown aboard the Enterprise.
The Voyage Home
Many series in the Star Trek continuum happened during the 23rd or 24th century. Rumor has it that the reasoning behind this is because the events need to take place in the distant future, but not so distant that viewers can’t relate to the characters. Apparently, that’s why Star Trek: The Original Series was set in the 2260s. Evidently, The Next Generation was set a century after The Original Series.
According to legend, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager both occurred at the same time as The Next Generation. Presumably, Star Trek: Enterprise was set 100 years after The Original Series. The most recent installment of the franchise, CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery, apparently takes place 10 years before Kirk and Spock’s first venture into deep space.
Deep Space Nine
Gizmodo reported that the plot of the CBS show will be centered around Picard’s private life after the end of his career. The media outlet stated that “the only thing we know for sure is the fact that Picard seemingly lead a rescue flotilla that attempted to save survivors fleeing Romulus which…presumably failed, given he promptly quit Starfleet and went off to Burgundy to go make wine.” The plotline for Picard would be a logical turn of events for the franchise, particularly since Star Trek: The Next Generation featured Captain Picard’s efforts to build a bridge between the galaxy and the Romulan Empire.
While not too much is known for sure about Picard, fans are hopeful that the TV series will answer some important remaining questions about the franchise. For instance, die-hard Trekkies are wondering what happened at the end of the Cardassian revolution in Deep Space Nine. They’re also dying to know about the destiny of B-4 after he transmitted Data’s recollections in Nemesis. Although we’re not sure if Picard will resolve these burning questions, we do know that Kurtzman said that the show will be distinctly unique from previous Star Trek series. The producer also dished that Picard will be a more calm, mind-bending show than the fast-paced Star Trek: Discovery. Whatever the show does turn out to be about, it’s sure to be an instant classic!
