The Star Trek Discovery cast dived straight into the major change the show is taking by jumping 930 years into the future.

Stewart, 79, was greeted with exuberant applause and a standing ovation and, in return, blew a kiss to the excited crowd before introducing the trailer at Madison Square Garden's Hulu Theater Saturday. The new series will follow this iconic character into the next chapter of his life.

"I came here to find safety, but one is never safe from the past", Stewart intones, over scenes of him and Data (Brent Spiner) in their old costumes. "The past is written, but we are left to write the future", Picard says in the trailer.

Allison Jean spoke fondly of her son's academic and extracurricular accomplishments as well as his commitment to his church. Guyger is accused of shooting and killing Botham Jean , an unarmed 26-year-old neighbour in his own apartment last year.

"I don't know how", Picard answers.

Admirers ended up enthusiastic through the trailer, which was demonstrated twice in a row to additional fulfill the masses. Jonathan Frakes (Riker) and Marina Sirtis (Troi) will also make appearances during Season 1.

"Believe me, I know better", the former Number One quips back. "I don't think the fans would have appreciated that", executive producer Heather Kadin said about regrouping everyone for nostalgia's sake. "Patrick [Stewart] did not want it to be a "Next Generation" reunion clearly show. We didn't want it to be, 'Oh, there's Riker!'"

In addition, govt producer Alex Kurtzman sees the series - and the entire franchise - as a way of addressing problems that exist in today's environment. Well, the usually optimistic Star Trek future doesn't look to be all to bright and cheery anymore. One thing's for sure, the new set up for this series has opened up the word of Star Trek in ways that it hasn't since The Next Generation jumped 100 years past the original series.

Much of the cast, including stars Sonequa Martin-Green (Burnham) and Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets), emphasized that the crew will have to reckon with the ramifications of traveling that far into the future-and not just on what new technology will be available to use. "Sometimes it's ugly, and sometimes it's hurtful, but duty calls".

During the panel, executive producer Alex Kurtzman also surprised audience members when he announced that the next installments of Short Treks will begin rolling out today, with the first new short "Q&A" available to stream now on CBS All Access.
