The first trailer for the 2nd season of Star Trek: Picard was released on Monday and is intended to get fans talking. There is no footage of the show yet, just a pan over various items in Jean-Luc Picard’s home office: a clock and an hourglass, a painting and a model of the spaceship Enterprise, a copy of Milton Paradise lost and the Dixon Hill novel The long dark tunnel. But the real joke comes at the end, with the image of a playing card dissolving to leave a meaningful “Q” and a single line voiced by John de Lancie, the actor who played the mighty reality-distorting alien Q. -Over has been talked about. Different iterations of Star Trek show past.
The teaser implies that Q will return to face Picard, his first Trek slide and favorite opponent, when the second season airs in 2022. The more the subject of this 63-second teaser seems to be Picard’s regrets and how nothing can be done about “what could have been” – unless Q offers him the opportunity to change the past. The visual emphasis on timepieces and Patrick Stewart’s voice-over as series star Jean-Luc Picard, who talks about “second chances” and history, suggest possible gimmicks in the second season.
A lot of Star Trek: PicardThe first season revolved around Picard’s feelings of failure and regret after becoming the star of the home system the Romulan Supernova. He promised them aid and relocation aid, but the Federation failed to keep this promise and caused the Romulans to suffer a disaster. Picard left Starfleet enraged and exiled, and his feelings of betrayal and helplessness fueled much of the often contradicting and troubled conspiracy of the first season. It’s possible that Season 2 could continue to delve into the aftermath of these life-changing events and how Q’s power over time and space could alter them and let Picard make amends for himself. Or the series could just let Picard jump into a past iteration of the show and deal with someone else’s problems, like that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
When it comes to Q, almost anything is possible – including a DS9 Flashback or crossover episode, given with another mysterious item in the teaser. For some reason he’s in the middle of Picard’s office The old Bajoran tablet, Captain Sisko, broke by doing DS9 Follow “The Reckoning”. It’s unclear what that could mean for season two – it could be anything from a return to Deep Space Nine‘s storylines about a disposable Easter egg for hardcore Trek fans. However, to pique the curiosity of the audience, it’s a smart piece. Since they may have to wait more than a year for the next season, they need something to think about in the meantime.
