SDCC 2019: Latest Picard Poster Hints At A New "First Officer"

Jean-Luc Picard may be boldly going to a PetSmart in the near future, if a new Star Trek: Picard poster is anything to go by.

Revealed on Sir Patrick Stewart's official Twitter account today, the poster depicts the decorated captain standing against the sunset. At his side is a pitbull, sitting pretty and decked out in a snazzy collar with a Starfleet insignia.

The tweet doesn't really give us much else to go off of, but for many fans, this small taste will be more than enough.

Observant Trekkies might note that Picard is standing in what looks to be a vineyard. From both this and the first teaser trailer, it's clear that the former captain is likely overseeing wine production on a massive scale. Fans might remember this callback to Season 4, Episode 2 of The Next Generation, which dealt with Picard's strained relationship to his brother, Robert. Robert was overseeing the family vineyard, and resented Jean-Luc for running off to join Starfleet. That bitterness resulted in a tense dynamic that eventually came to blows - not to mention a tumble into a mud puddle.

It's unclear from both the teaser and the poster, however, if this vineyard is the same one. While it's a safe bet, perhaps Jean-Luc has struck out on his own and continued the family business on a new plot of land. Only time will tell.

But we won't really have to wait that long - CBS has already promised to show off more Picard at San Diego Comic-Con this month. How much of it, exactly, remains to be seen, but with a projected 2019 release, it's safe to assume that the curtain will be pulled back sooner rather than later.
