Patrick Stewart (78) returns as his character Captain Jean-Luc Picard in a new spin-off series for ‘Star Trek’. It is the first time he has played the role since 2002, in the movie “Nemesis.”
The series is set 15 years after the events in ‘Star Trek: Nemesis’. In the trailer we see how Picard is asked why he left Star Fleet, where he was captain for years, to run a vineyard. “It was something very, very different from what we are used to,” says Stewart himself. “The character has changed because of what he experienced.” The series will be broadcast on the American channel CBS.
