Two weeks ago at the first panel for "Star Trek First Contact Day," fans of Star Trek: Picard found themselves on the receiving end of some really good news courtesy of series star Patrick Stewart. With the series set to return in 2022, it was revealed that production on the second season was officially underway. Pretty sweet news, right? Then, viewers were treated to the first official teaser for the second season. As much as we've been told that space is the final frontier, Stewart's Picard wants viewers to know that they were wrong. Time is the final frontier, and how we deal with the choices we've made (and if we would ever change things if we could). Then came the reveal that caught the attention of TNG fans around the world: John de Lancie's Q will be returning to haunt Picard once more- because as Q himself is heard saying, Picard's test never truly ended- and he might be close to his final grade.
Now we're checking in with Santiago Cabrera aka La Sirena pilot Cristobal "Chris" Rios, who shared a look from outside his trailer earlier today to offer viewers a friendly reminder that as they read this work is already underway on a new season of adventure and intrigue:
