As Paramount+'s Star Trek: Picard gets ready to "engage" viewers this week with its second season premiere (with the series set to wrap up its run with the recently-announced third season), it's pretty clear that Q's (John de Lancie) long-running "time trial" will be making a mess of things for Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) and the team. And along with Q, Picard will have at least two very different yet equally impactful reunions- one with Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) and the other with the Borg Queen (Annie Wersching). Will our heroes be able to fix Time and make things right? Might this be the moment Picard gets to call "checkmate" in this seemingly never-ending chess match with the omnipotent thorn in his side? Here's a look at a new set of preview images for what's to come, followed by a visit from the cast that helps set the stage for their return.
Now here's a look at Stewart and the cast getting viewers ready for what's to come by filling in some of the between-seasons gaps in "Setting the Scene: Star Trek: Picard Season 2":
