Star Trek: Picard Season 2 teaser trailer is here. The second season of Picard won’t debut until 2022. There is not much to the teaser below, however we do get our first look at Q in the show. The only plot tease we have, is something time travel related. That’s new for Star Trek right? Oh, wait, no, it happens all the time.

So time is broken, again. Was that not the case in the last few Star Trek movies, and then a big part of Discovery also? I don’t remember when Star Trek changed from being about exploration and Galactic politics to Time Bandits, but it did.
Listen, I kinda enjoyed Picard, I’m not gonna lie. However, I know a lot of Trek fans just didn’t enjoy it at all. I had some issues with the ending of Picard, but overall I wanted to see a Season 2. As such, I’ll judge Season 2 on its own merits next year. However, I totally understand hardcore Trek fans who have not loved all the changes made to the Universe since it’s TV and Cinema reboots.

My dream Star Trek show was always a direct sequel to the TNG timeline. What happened after Star Trek: Nemesis? The Galaxy was in the beginnings of a great change once again. The war against the Dominion had left The Federation as the only real superpower left in the Quadrant, despite taking huge losses themselves and the battles against the Borg to boot. The Klingons and Romulans had definitely fallen from power in many ways though, but with the Klingons now being allied to The Federation. We also had the return of Voyager with all their discoveries and scientific breakthroughs to sift through regarding the Delta Quadrant.
Picard Season 1 did not really do much with that set up. The Romulans had definitely fallen from power, but we didn’t hear much of any other aspect of Galactic politics other than the current ban against synthetic life forms.
With Season 2 being about time again, I’m not sure it’s going to scratch that itch for me, but we shall see. What do you think of this Star Trek: Picard Season 2 teaser trailer? As always, leave any thoughts you have below.
