The first teaser trailer for Star Trek: Picard season two is here.

Below is a look at the return of the character-driven Paramount+ sci-fi series starring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard.

The trailer teases the revival of a major, fan-favorite character in the Trek franchise: Q, played by actor actor John de Lancie, who surprised fans with an appearance at the First Contact Day virtual fan event on Monday, April 5:

Q is an extra-dimensional being who can manipulate space, time and reality. He was first introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation as a devious jokester who was amused to test Picard with ethical quandaries.  He played a key role in both the syndicated show's pilot and its final episodes. The character appeared on Star Trek: Voyager as well.

“Q’s arrival is, as it often was, unexpected,” Stewart on the stream. “It also comes in a shattering moment in an episode, and I do mean a shattering moment. There is significant trauma. There are events coming up in season two that have never been seen before.”

The trailer voiceover teases that time travel might be a factor in the season. "Time offers so many opportunities but never second chances," Picard intones, followed by the reveal of a Q on a playing card and Q saying in voiceover, "The trial never ends."

“Finally! I’m totally delighted and I’m really looking forward to it and I’m more than ready,” Lancie added. “I’ve aged a little bit to be more in keeping with where we are right now. I’m here to make your life as annoying as possible. He is deliciously naughty and terribly self involved, so as my wife says, it's not much of a stretch."

The production also announced that another fan-favorite actor, Brent Spiner (Data), will appear in the new season, despite his character perishing in season one.

Other cast members confirmed to return include Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Jeri Ryan and Orla Brady. 

Production is now underway on the new season, but fans are going to have to wait a while for the new episodes: Star Trek: Picard won't be back until 2022.

The real Q is returning anon.

If 2022 can be considered anon, that is.

OMG, if Q is in it, it will be fantastic.... but how cruel to post a teaser for a 2022?

How do you keep fan-boys engaged?  Make them wait a really long time for the release.....   

This also brings up a question, is this how Picard becomes human again?

Could be, but that would mean they wasted that entire first season story arc. Still, anything can happen in the writers' room, and Q is omnipotent.

Omnipotent and the longest running character in the entire star trek universe.

Revival? 

Q shows up wherever and whenever  he wants.

Is he? I assume you're referring to The Squire of Gothos, but was Trelane supposed to be John Dr Lancie's Q, or just another member of the Continuum?

In the Star Trek TNG novel, "Q-Squared," Trelane was a member of the Continuum and implied to be Q's son.

Ah. Thanks, Gordy.

I'm thinking the longest running characters would have to be Pike, Spock, and Number One. They were in the original pilot, and now they're getting a brand new show. Hard to be longer running than that.

If not, you can get it on Google Play Movies and TV. All you need is a google account and at this point...who doesn't have one? It's not expensive either.

I now have Hulu, Netflix, and Paramount+.  I just got rid of Disney+.  I was all up in the Marvel craze for awhile but that's cooled off.  All these different streaming services is ridiculous.  Hulu just went up in price and Disney+

My neighbor had it as well. She wasn't very impressed and ditched it after a couple of months. I have been rebuilding my DVD collection on Google Play so I can get rid of the piles of DVD's I have all over the house.

All they really did was change the name and add more content. I think they may have changed servers or something, too. It seems to stream better for me now than it did when it was CBS All Access.

I complained early on, too, but now I like it. It's become one of my favorite streaming channels.

In this series, does Patrick still do the "Picard Maneuver"?

I have met John De Lancie and of the celebrities I have met, he is by far the most polite, engaging and down to Earth. Genuinely nice guy who gives his full undivided attention when he is talking to you no matter who you are. (Honorable mention: Ron Pearlman, very cool, polite and engaging.)

He doesn't post a lot on Twitter, but he does from time to time. 

@johndelancie is his Twitter tag.

Cool. I haven't met many celebrities. No big stars, anyway. I suppose the closet I've come is partying with standup comedians after their shows back in my younger days. One of them was the helicopter pilot in Star Trek IV (the guy who brought the transparent aluminum to the Bird of Prey). I can't remember if I actually partied with him or not, but I know I met him and got his autograph at the bar.

I just got lucky, right place at the right time. Ron Pearlman was at a comic-con, his, "booth", was utterly empty, not one person there and he was sitting there reading a book. I just walked up, shook his hand and he asked me to sit down to chat, since no one was in line or anything. BS'd for about 20 minutes before a line formed. Like I said, very personable and polite.

The whole idea of Q is a little deus ex machina to me, which runs against my desire to have sci in my sci-fi.

But John De Lancie makes up for it.  He's so deliciously arrogant.

I couldn't agree with you more. I feel exactly the same way, especially when it comes to Star Trek. I hate the magic crap in some of the characters and storylines.

I also agree that the character is still thoroughly enjoyable. It's quite the personal dilemma for me. One of those love/hate things.

He also has great chemistry with Patrick Stewart. The two of them play off of each other quite well, whether the scene they share is comical or serious. Remember the TNG episode "Tapestry?"

He has great chemistry with all of the Star Trek captains, IMO.  Stewart, Brooks, Mulgrew.

"Tapestry" is one of my favorite episodes.  Probably the best Q-centered ep.

True. But I think it's his chemistry with Picard that stands above all others.

"Tapestry" is one of my favorite episodes. 

Mine too. It's not only a great Picard character episode, but also shows real depth to Q beyond his usual appearance as a kind of "trickster god." I think the episode is the moment when Picard and Q start to become real friends. It's a favorite as well as one of the best TNG episodes.

Mine is probably from DS9: "You hit me! Picard never hit me!"

Also from the same episode:

Q:  "They meant it affectionately."
