The trailer for the 10-episode series was released during the work of a group of actors, including Patrick Stewart, who returns to play the iconic Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Stewart portrayed Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, which aired for seven seasons from 1987 to 1994. In the new series, Picard is older, thoughtful and grounded.
The legendary commander of the USS Enterprise star ship threatens to retire, but he still finds a reason to return to space.
His troubled retirement is disturbed by a young woman portrayed by Isaiah Briones who, in his view, is in "grave danger". His mission to keep her safe brings him back to Starfleet to command a new crew consisting of Alison Pill and Santiago Cabrera.
