Cast and characters
Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard: A retired Starfleet admiral. Stewart returns to the role after last portraying the character in the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis. He felt that at that time his role in the franchise “had run its natural course”, but in the years since he was humbled by stories of the impact the character had on the lives of fans and so was now happy “to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times”.
