WATCH: Two of Star Trek's biggest baddies are back for Picard Season 2

Fans of The Next Generation will be very happy with these returning characters.

The first season of Star Trek: Picard debuted in January 2020, with fans of the franchise very happy to see the return of Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), even if the plot did kind of lose its way towards the end.


The popularity of the show meant that a second season was announced just as the first season aired, and Prime Video has just released the first proper trailer for what we can expect from the new story.

It looks as if the omnipotent being Q (John de Lancie) has returned to continue singularly holding Picard responsible through his decade's long trial of all of humanity, and this time shows how one tiny change can have huge ramifications. And so we see the usually utopia-esque Federation is now ruled under a fascist fist, with Picard right at the centre of it.

Picard and his new crew realise that Q has changed something in history, so they must recruit a Borg Queen (Annie Wersching) to travel back in time, not unlike the plot of The Next Generation's best movie, Star Trek: First Contact.

And so we see Picard and co. come all the way back to the 21st century, to figure out what Q has done to humanity's past, while not messing up the timeline so much that it completely destroys the original future they've all come from.


Also, while she doesn't seem to appear in this trailer, it is rumoured that Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) will return, as will Brent Spiner, although it is still unclear if he will be back as Data, or another android, or perhaps Dr. Noonian Soong, the creator of the androids.

The second season of Star Trek: Picard is set to debut on Prime Video in February 2022.
