STAR TREK: Q Returns & Seven Loses Her Borg Implants In First Teaser Trailer For PICARD Season 2
We recently found out that Star Trek: The Next Generation fave John de Lancie was set to reprise the role of Q for the second season of Picard, and this new teaser trailer gives us a first look...
Easily the biggest announcement to come out of "First Contact Day" back in April was the imminent return of Q, with John de Lancie set to reprise the role of the near-omnipotent interdimensional being. Now, we have our first look at an older incarnation of the fan-favorite character in a new teaser trailer for the second season of Paramount+'s Picard.
We're not sure how Q will factor into the story, but we hear him welcome his old frenemy to “the very end of the road not taken,” as we see shots of the various returning cast members. Then, right at the end, Seven of Nine waked up to find her Borg implants have been removed.
Check out the promo below and see if you can figure out what's going on!
Introduced during the first season of The Next Generation, Q was initially antagonistic to the crew of the Enterprise before becoming more of an antihero-type and eventual mentor to Picard as the series progressed. He also made several appearances in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Lower Decks.
Season 2 of Picard is expected to premiere in 2022. Rejoining Patrick Stewart as the iconic starship captain will be Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Jeri Ryan, Orla Brady and Brent Spiner.
