Blasting through an array of original characters and familiar ships and villains, including a Borg Cube, a young women in peril falls into Picard's post-starfleet life and he is thrust back into action.
His new team consists of well-known characters from Voyager and The Next Generation including Seven of Nine, Data, and many others.
New characters (and a new pup) will join the cast, including Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Evan Evagora (Elnor), Harry Treadaway (Narek) Isa Briones (playing Dahj), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal “Chris” Rios), and Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker).
Twitter had some explosive reactions seeing the hashtag #StarTrekPicard begin to circulate.

Others are saying it comes across as too much fan service but will love it anyway.
Some are already picking out details and easter eggs.
A small minority appeared unsure after viewing the trailer.
