'Star Trek: Picard' producer reveals 7 new details about the mysterious series

Here's another look at Picard and his dog for new Star Trek series

Plus! Get ready to enjoy more Star Trek: Short Treks, including one episode that will act as a teaser for Star Trek: Picard, providing backstory on what happened to the eponymous character in the 15 years since he left Starfleet. "He will [go to space], but not in a way that anyone expects", the executive producer explained.

"In some ways, it's easier to be (a great man) when you're a captain".

Star Trek fans will find several panels of interest throughout San Diego Comic-Con, but CBS is also hosting an immersive exhibit that can not be missed!

This first image from the new "Star Trek" series arrives shortly before its first episode of "Picard" screens at the San Diego Comic-Con next weekend.

Kurtzman stopped short of revealing what exactly spurred Picard's return to space, but he did mention that it won't be under the banner of Starfleet. Why?

Lastly, the pair reassures fans that Patrick Stewart is still in tip-top acting shape, noting that "he has the ability to hold you riveted even when he's just sitting and listening".

The Jean-Luc Picard: The First Duty exhibit will be open for SDCC attendees and all Star Trek fans on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 11:00 a.m.to 5:00 p.m. For those of you keeping count, that means that Picard will be the show set farthest in the Star Trek universe's future, surpassing both Deep Space Nine and Voyager. "There would have to be an incredibly specific story reason [for them to be there]". "There are many things that haunt Picard", Kurtzman teases, adding the ill-fated Romulus mission is just one of those things. Plot details have been kept under wraps, but CBS All Access has been touting the series - which is set 20 years after Star Trek: Next Generation ended - as the "next chapter" of the former Starfleet admiral's life. "You will not see a version that betrays the man we loved from The Next Generation".

Seriously though, if Kurtzman and co. don't at least find way to bring Brent Spiner back as Data, we're gonna be more than a little bit disappointed. We're not doing that. Instead, they're going to get a whole new story featuring Picard. "But we wanted to put a character with that level of morality and leadership and who always does the right thing no matter how hard the circumstances ... we wanted to put that to the test". The show's new regular cast members (Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway) are not playing any familiar Next Gen characters, Kurtzman confirms.
