About Star Trek: Picard Seasons 1 and 2
The new series built on Picard’s background as captain of the Enterprise on Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as the series’ subsequent related films, and connected to Star Trek: Voyager, including a major original television villain, the Borg, a deadly race who seek to assimilate other races that they encounter. The Borg played a not-insignificant part in The Next Generation and Voyager, and had a major impact on Picard’s life during his time as captain, at one point assimilating him into the collective. In addition to the Borg, Picard’s frequent antagonists the Romulans were back in the game.
Pulling Picard from his family’s vineyard back to the stars was a new crew, albeit motley and decidedly un-Starfleet. They were more an independent group of renegades who have been brought together for Picard’s mission in season 1. Returning for season 2 are Santiago Cabrera as pilot Cristobal “Chris” Rios, Alison Pill as Dr. Agnes Jurati, Michelle Hurd as intelligence officer Raffi Musiker, Evan Evagora as Romulan warrior Elnor, Harry Treadaway as Romulan Narek, and Isa Briones as Soji Asha.
One of the familiar Trek faces to appear in season 1, Jeri Ryan also returns as former-Borg Starfleet compatriot, Seven of Nine, as does John de Lance as Q, continuing to stir up trouble. Joining the reunion is Picard’s confidant and friend, Guinan, played by Whoopi Goldberg.
