'Star Trek: Picard' Season Two Reveals One Of Picard's Enemies Is Returning - Watch!

Paramount+ has just unveiled the first teaser for season two of Star Trek: Picard and hinting just which of Picard’s nemeses is coming back.

The teaser opens with Picard (Patrick Stewart) narrating the scene like a tour for his French chateau, and fans will recognize a lot of things the camera focuses in on, like John Milton’s “Paradise Lost” and even a model of his old ship, the Stargazer.

“The true final frontier is time,” Picard is overheard saying, before the camera goes to a Queen of Hearts playing card, which burns until only the “Q” remains.

Then, another voice comes over, saying that “the trial never ends” before it cackles.

William Shatner Explains Why He's Never Watched an Episode of 'Star Trek'

William Shatner has revealed that he’s never seen an episode of his hit show Star Trek!

In a new interview, the 90-year-old actor said that he’s never watched an episode of the sci-fi series, which originally ran from 1966 to 1969. On the show, William played Captain James T. Kirk.

“I have never watched ‘Star Trek’,” William shared with People. “There are many episodes I don’t know, there are some movies I don’t know.”

However, William did say he watched the 1989 movie Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, but that’s only because he directed the movie.

“I directed one of the movies — No. 5 — I had to watch that one,” he said.

William then explained why he’s never watched any of his Star Trek performances.

“It’s all painful because I don’t like the way I look and what I do,” William added.

Earlier this week, fans sent heartfelt messages to William on social media in honor of his 90th birthday!

Chris Pine Opens Up About Rumored 'Star Trek 4' Plans With Quentin Tarantino

Chris Pine has heard just about nothing about plans for Star Trek 4.

Speaking to Comicbook.com, the 39-year-old actor dished about the prospect of a fourth movie in the franchise, and also chatted about Quentin Tarantino‘s involvement.

“You know, I haven’t (read a script),” he shared. “In terms of the Star Trek of it all, I really wish I knew anything. I’m quite literally one of the last people ever to find out.”

Chris continued, “So, I haven’t read that script, I don’t know where it is in development, I haven’t read the Noah Hawley script, I have no idea what’s happening in Star Trek land.”

However, he is excited about Tarantino‘s possible involvement in it.

“I love the character, I love the universe, I love my friends in it, you know, to have a Quentin take on it would be tremendously interesting and entertaining,” Chris added. “You know, look, whatever happens, if I come back or not, it’s a great universe, it deserves to have a future, and I hope that is the case.”

Earlier this month, another screenwriter who has been working with Tarantino on the R-rated script teased what it was like.

'Star Trek' Makes History With First Non-Binary & Trans Actors!

Star Trek is making diversity history.

The CBS All Access show announced on Wednesday (September 2) that the franchise’s first non-binary and transgender actors, Blu del Barrio and Ian Alexander, will join for Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery.

The actors will also be playing non-binary and transgender characters.

Blu was in their final year of acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art when they auditioned for the role of Adira, a non-binary resident of the 32nd Century who quickly finds the U.S.S. Discovery to be their new home, and is a character who is “highly intelligent with a confidence and self-assurance well beyond their years.” They become friends with Dr. Hugh Culber (Wilson Cruz) and Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp), who were also the first gay couple to be part of a Star Trek cast.

Ian will play Gray, the first major Trill character in the franchise since Deep Space Nine, a hybrid species, in which a humanoid “host” joins with an intestine-like symbiont and receives the memories and personality of the symbiont, plus the symbiont’s memories and experiences of its previous hosts.

“Symbionts are joined with hosts regardless of gender, so a female host in the present may have memories of having been male in the past. And vice versa. It was an early attempt at Trek blurring gender boundaries and inquiring into what exactly makes one’s identity,” Indiewire reports.

“Gray is empathetic, warm and eager to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a Trill host, but he will have to adapt when his life takes an unexpected turn,” says CBS.

Ian is also the first out transgender Asian-American actor on television, and is known as Buck Vu on Netflix’s The OA and Lev in the highly acclaimed video game The Last of Us Part II.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 debuts on CBS All Access on October 15. There’s also a brand new series in the franchise coming!

Ethan Peck & Anson Mount to Lead New 'Star Trek' Series for CBS All Access

CBS All Access has announced that there will be a new series in the Star Trek universe!

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will star Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock, and Rebecca Romijn as Number One.

The new series will “follow Pike, Spock, and Number One in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise as they explore new worlds around the galaxy,” according to Variety.

The three actors are reprising the roles that they all played on season two of Star Trek: Discovery.

“Fans fell in love with Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck’s portrayals of these iconic characters when they were first introduced on Star Trek: Discovery last season,” said Julie McNamara, executive vice president and head of programming at CBS All Access. “This new series will be a perfect complement to the franchise, bringing a whole new perspective and series of adventures to Star Trek.”

Here's Why a Fourth 'Star Trek' Movie Might Not Happen with One of the Stars Throwing Some Shade

Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the Star Trek franchise, doesn’t expect a fourth film to happen.

“The fact is, Star Trek movies don’t make Marvel money,” Simon told Total Film.”They make maybe $500 million at the most, and to make one now, on the scale they’ve set themselves, is $200 million. You have to make three times that to make a profit.”

He then threw a little shade at the studio, saying, “I don’t feel like the last one… [Paramount Pictures] didn’t really take advantage of the 50th anniversary. The regimen at the time dropped the ball on the promo of the film. And we’ve lost momentum. I think losing Anton [Yelchin] was a huge blow to our little family, and our enthusiasm to do another one might have been affected by that. So I don’t know.”

2016′s Star Trek Beyond, which was co-written by Simon, did not do as well as 2016′s Star Trek Into the Darkness at the box office. Beyond earned $344 million vs. Darkness‘ $467 million.

There is still some success in the Star Trek universe.

Donald Trump Unveils Logo For US Space Force & It Looks An Awful Lot Like The 'Star Trek' Starfleet Command Insignia

President Donald Trump just revealed the official logo for the newest branch of the military, the U.S. Space Force.

“After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military!” he announced on Twitter, along with the image.

But the logo looks very familiar to fans, and even more familiar to Star Trek star George Takei.

“Ahem. We are expecting some royalties from this…,” George pointed out as soon as the logo was introduced, picking up on the similiaries to the Starfleet Command logo that was used on Star Trek.

One fan poked fun at the logo, writing, “To boldly go where someone has gone before.”

“Starfleet called. They want their insignia back,” another user commented.
