Guinan returns in Star Trek: Picard

Paramount+ has released a new trailer for the second season of Star Trek: Picard and it marks the return of Star Trek: The Next Generation fan-favourite Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg).

I got misty-eyed when Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) reunited with Guinan and then talked over a cup of Earl Grey tea. John de Lancie, another veteran of Star Trek: The Next Generation, is back as the omnipotent Q.

Read the official synopsis:

"Season two of Star Trek: Picard takes the legendary Jean-Luc Picard and his crew on a bold and exciting new journey: into the past. Picard must enlist friends both old and new to confront the perils of 21st century Earth in a desperate race against time to save the galaxy’s future – and face the ultimate trial from one of his greatest foes."

Whilst Paramount+ launches soon in the UK, as part of a multi-year deal with Sky, Star Trek: Picard will continue to be available internationally on Amazon Prime (affiliate link).

This mitigates a reprise of the backlash that greeted Star Trek: Discovery's fourth season when the spin-off series was unceremoniously pulled from Netflix days before the premiere. It's currently streaming for free on Pluto TV in the wake of complaints from fans. However, the Star Trek prequel series jumped the shark one too many times for my liking.

In related news. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds debuts on Paramount+ on 5th May! The day after Star Wars Day! Trolling much?

Star Trek: Picard premieres on Paramount+ on 3rd March.

Are you looking forward to the second season of Star Trek: Picard? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. Don't forget the good old finger-snapping Q, Brent Spiner sans the inch thick makeup frosting and Timey Wimey Shenanigans involving Borg Queens and white eyes undead stalkers. The Mug of Tropes is filled to the brim but it still gives plenty of hope to have something to look forward to as they might bring back one or two other fan favorite surprises such as Worf, or Geordie.

    1. Paramount+ is covering all the bases!
