Star Trek: Picard
The Jean-Luc Picard series is no longer “untitled.” CBS announced Wednesday at the Upfront presentation to advertisers and reporters the official name of Patrick Stewart’s upcoming series is called Star Trek: Picard. This presentation is made annually and showcases everything the network has scheduled, both for broadcast and the streaming channel CBS All Access.
Fans were a little underwhelmed by the title reveal. But everyone maintained excitement for the show. They had actually guessed at the title about two months ago. However, the director of the pilot, Hannelle Culpeper, seemed to dismiss the idea of that name.
Liz Shannon Miller tweeted: “Okay, so we’re calling is STAR TREK: PICARD. As titles go, it works. #CBSUpfront”
James Whitbrook chimed in with his cheeky tweet as well: “I can’t believe the Untitled Star Trek Picard Show is actually called Star Trek: Picard. Whomst could have forseen this.”

Along with the title, the show premiered a bit of the footage. A shot of Picard in civilian attire is shown, although there are others in Starfleet uniforms around him. Kate Arthur shared this bit on her Twitter account.
There is no official release of footage outside of the logo treatment, which they revealed on the official Star Trek Twitter account and website, StarTrek.com.
Where To Watch
Star Trek: Picard premieres later this year. United States fans can watch on CBS All Access. In Canada, it will be available on Space Channel and Crave. Other international viewers will be able to stream it through Amazon Prime after the initial release.
The show stars Patrick Stewart, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, and Isa Briones.
This should be a great new series for Star Trek fans!
