The first trailer for Patrick Stewart‘s Jean-Luc Picard TV show is full of surprises for Star Trek fans.

Unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con, the glimpse at the new series catches us up with the former Enterprise captain who, when the show begins, is no longer at Starfleet.

The series is based after the destruction of Romulus and follows a retired Picard who is forced to assemble a team for a new brand new mission.

This team includes familiar faces in the form of Voyager and The Next Generation characters Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), Data (Brent Spiner) and Hugh the Borg (Jonathan Del Arco).

That’s not all – showrunner Michael Chabon also announced that Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis will reprise their roles as Will Riker and Deanna Troi, respectively.

New stars joining the show include Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Santiago Cabrera.

Also at Comic-Con, a new trailer for The Walking Dead season 10 was released as well as the entire Phase Four slate of Marvel films that came with several surprising revelations.

Star Trek: Picard will premiere early 2020.
