Patrick Stewart Talks Star Trek: Picard

A Difference In Jean-Luc

Star Trek: Picard began yesterday on CBS All Access and starts today on Amazon Prime and here’s Patrick Stewart talking to our friends over at Rotten Tomatoes TV about the new show…

It’s been almost two decades since Jean-Luc Picard has commanded the bridge and our screens, and since legendary actor Sir Patrick Stewart last played the storied Starfleet admiral. The years, says Stewart, have changed them both. That growth is central to the newest CBS All Access ‘Star Trek’ series, ‘Picard,’ which finds the titular commander in a very different place to when we last saw him – older, wiser, out of the game, and about to be drawn back in. Ahead of the series’ highly anticipated premiere on January 23, Rotten Tomatoes sat down with Stewart to find out what brought him back to the ‘Star Trek’ franchise and why he feels such a personal connection with the man who’s become his most iconic role. Plus, we talk to ‘Star Trek’ newcomers Isa Briones, Alison Pill, Santiago Cabrera, Evan Evagora, and Michelle Hurd, about working with Stewart and joining the ‘Star Trek’ universe, and franchise veterans Jeri Ryan, Jonathan Del Arco, and Marina Sirtis reveal what it was like to return. Finally, the creatives behind the series – Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Heather Kadin, Akiva Goldsman – detail how the project came to be, and how they convinced Stewart to finally sign on.
