The third and final season of Paramount+‘s “Star Trek: Picard” has a new trailer that debuted out of New York Comic Con on Saturday. It features new cast members for the Patrick Stewart-led series, as well as the appearance of some recognizable “Star Trek: The Next Generation” adversaries.

Brent Spiner will return to “Picard,” according to Paramount+, but he won’t be playing Data this time around; instead, he’ll be playing a character “named Lore,” evoking one of the most formidable villains in “Next Generation” history: Data’s evil twin brother Lore, who was vanquished and disassembled at the start of Season 7 of “Next Gen.

” Daniel Davis will also reprise his role as Professor Moriarty from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” the Holodeck manifestation of a fictional character invented by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to be Sherlock Holmes’ adversary. Moriarty from “Next Gen” eventually developed self-awareness.

Last but not least, two other notable actors who have been cast in recurring parts for “Picard” are Mica Burton and Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut from the television series Critical Role and Cruel Summer, respectively.

For all the Paramount Global executives in the room who were listening to the panel and the enthusiastic audience who were praising the concept, Stewart teased how he and the “TNG” ensemble could “still create a movie.” The last season of “Picard” would “absolutely” have a handoff from the “TNG” cast to the “Star Trek: Discovery” ensemble, according to Matalas.
