The legendary British actor Patrick Stewart played the Starfleet captain on the Star Trek: Next Generation series, which aired from 1987 to 1994. Now, the upcoming Star Trek: Picard picks up 15 years after Picard left the Federation’s service, as per the previously released teaser. The new Star Trek show, Picard, premieres on CBS All Access later this year.

The show will also star Alison Pill, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Harry Treadaway, and Isa Briones. As CBS is bringing the show to San Diego Comic-Con next week (July 20), more details are expected to be revealed. Although the show’s executive producer, Alex Kurtzmann, mentioned that the new series will have a dramatically different tone from the CBS: All Access’ other main Star Trek series, Discovery, as it’s expected to be a ‘very contemplative show.’

The actor is known to be a passionate advocate for fostering dogs

In the picture above, Sir Stewart is seen snuggling with a foster girl, Ginger, that he took up back in 2017 and helped her find a forever home. Now, this year, the actor took up a lovely, 38-pound pocket pitbull mix named Emma.

I imagine a future where even in the states people stop chopping ears off their dogs. It is already the present in my country.

In the catch, sterilize, and release programs near me, in the USA, they actually clip off the tips of feral cats’ ears to indicate they’ve been sterilized. It’s brutality. But doing this shit to animals for COSMETICS only is even worse.

I always liked to watch Enterprise with Porthos the Beagle, it'll be interesting to see how this one pans out. :)

Enterprise was great. It’s a shame it was canceled... and the series finale was a betrayal.
