Star Trek: Picard season 3 trailer is here. Following a sneak peek last month on Star Trek Day, Paramount+ has now dropped a full-length trailer for the Patrick Stewart-led space franchise, as he leads The Next Generation crew on a final mission. Appropriately subtitled “The Final Season,” this new chapter comprises of a total of 10 episodes, and enlists recurring characters at a later point in their arcs. Star Trek: Picard season 3 premieres on February 16, 2023, exclusively on Paramount+ where available. It will end its run on April 20, 2023. In India, Star Trek: Picard season 3 will air on Amazon Prime Video.
Star Trek: Picard season 3 trailer
The trailer for Star Trek: Picard season 3 begins with a “normal” life for Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Stewart), which gets interrupted by a distress call. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), who is stationed on a far-off ship, has requested backup from her long-time companion, urging Picard to bring back the crew from retirement. “We are being hunted,” Crusher says in a voiceover, as we see Picard and a now-aged William T. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) investigating the shuttle. The suspense is broken early, when the commander Vadic (Amanda Plummer) reveals herself to be the culprit. “How very precise with your timing, Jean-Luc Picard,” she wires in through a mocking tone, before ordering a direct strike on The Next Generation ship.
There also seems to be some drama within the ship, as Starfleet officer Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) expresses concern over Picard’s decision to bring in Ryker and Worf (Michael Dorn), for the final mission. The Star Trek: Picard season 3 trailer then flashes glimpses of Raffi (Michelle Hurd), besting foes in hand-to-hand combat — described as an irrational and violent character. “We will scorch the earth under which he stands. And, the night will brighten with the ashes of the Federation,” says the villainous Vadic, as she orders continuous attacks on Picard’s ship. Her motivations aren’t fully clear, but there’s a theme of vengeance looming above.
Of course, Vadic isn’t the only adversary to be featured in the Star Trek: Picard season 3 trailer, as towards the end, we’re treated to a first look at Daniel Davis’ return as Professor Moriarty, the hologram. Fans who stick around after the title card will also be treated to Brent Spiner, who has been missing from previous promotional material for this season of Star Trek: Picard. He will be returning as Data’s evil twin android, Lore.
