News from New York Comic-Con 2019.
We know that Star Trek: Picard will include the Romulans and the Borg, as well as favorite characters from the past such as Data, Riker, Troi, Seven of Nine, and Geordi’s buddy Hugh. With so many elements of the new show being familiar to Star Trek fans, it’s a great time to rewatch select episodes in preparation for the January 2020 premiere.
