CBS All Access revealed a new trailer for Star Trek: Picard at San Diego Comic-Con which not only reveals more of the show’s story, but features the returns of Brent Spiner as Data and Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine. Entertainment Weekly reports that during a panel for the show, it was revealed that Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis) would also make appearances during the season. In addition to Patrick Stewart returning to play Jean-Luc Picard, it stars Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway. Here are highlights from the panel:

Brent Spiner on being asked to return: “I called producers and asked if they had anybody for the role of Picard yet and they hung up on me. I spoke to Patrick he said there’s a possibility, would you think about coming on this show and I said, ‘I don’t think could do that,’ and he started crying and couldn’t take it.”

Patrick Stewart on how much returning to the role meant to him: “When we were shooting the last episode of the series Jonathan Frakes and I had a scene in the Ready Room and he said, ‘It was an honor Captain,’ and I was supposed to say, ‘the honor has all been mine’ and I couldn’t say it. The emotion … we tried again and again and I couldn’t get it. And that emotion is still right here on this platform and it’s not going to go away.”

It will premiere on CBS All Access later this year.
