'Star Trek' Picard Spinoff Series Gets Official Name and Logo


More information about the new "Star Trek" spinoff series focusing on Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) is beginning to find its way to the public. Recently, Alex Kurtzman — showrunner on "Star Trek: Discovery" and executive producer of this new series — said it would be a "psychological character study," and now we have an official name, a logo and even a few photographs. The official title is "Star Trek: Picard."

The Starfleet logo has been incorporated as the "a" in Picard. There's no word yet on the premiere date, but we know that the first season will have 10 episodes. 

The announcement was made as CBS Television held its annual "upfront" presentation for advertisers in New York City, where the company showed off its broadcast network schedule for the coming 2019-2020 season, its slate of new shows for the CBS broadcast network and CBS All Access.

Kate Aurthur, chief Los Angeles correspondent for BuzzFeed News, posted a photograph from the event on Twitter showing the former Starfleet captain in civilian wear and what looks like a familiar 24th-century uniform just behind him. It's interesting to note that this style has been adopted, rather than, say, the uniforms we saw in the movies "Star Trek: First Contact" and "Star Trek: Insurrection."
