It’s been over 3 years since I first published a blog post about Star Trek: Picard. Since then – we’ve gone through both Season 1 and Season 2. And in a little over 2 weeks from now, Season 3 kicks off on Feb. 16th on Paramount+. Season 3 will be the final season of the show and bring some form of closure to the character of Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek universe – a character that has been a hero of mine since childhood. It is also meant to give the Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) a much better send off than they got with Star Trek: Nemesis 20 years ago.
While many fans did not like Star Trek: Nemesis, I enjoyed the movie however I felt it did fall extremely short in living up to its tag line of “A Generation’s Final Journey” coming away from the movie feeling very unfulfilled and unsatisfied. At the same time, this season is also supposed to also open the door for the “Next, Next Generation”. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 looks to be an epic 10-episode story that gives us closure on some characters while opening the door for the future with new characters to continue the adventures. I am absolutely beyond excited to see what happens. And today we got the final trailer for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 that aired during the NFL AFC Championship Game:
Here is the updated synopsis for Star Trek: Picard Season 3:
In the epic, thrilling conclusion of Star Trek: Picard, a desperate message from a long-lost friend draws Starfleet legend Admiral Jean-Luc Picard into the most daring mission of his life, forcing him to recruit allies spanning generations old and new. This final adventure sets him on a collision course with the legacy of his past and explosive, new revelations that will alter the fate of the Federation forever.
You can watch the original teaser for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 here, the Sneak Peek shown during Star Trek Day in September here, and the New York City Comic-Con teaser here as well.
I am planning to write a little summary of how to get ready for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 I hope to publish soon which explains how everything fits together within the broader Star Trek Universe – without any spoilers for Season 3 and minor spoilers for Season 1 and 2.
