Latest STAR TREK: PICARD trailer features the new starship Enterprise

The trailer for Star Trek: Picard's third season has arrived and features the surprise appearance of the latest starship to bear the name USS Enterprise.

Eagle-eyed viewers will spot the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-F showing up towards the end of the trailer. The Enterprise-F first appeared in the video game Star Trek Online and, along with many other ships from the game, has been licensed for use in Picard. The ship is an Odyssey-class vessel and is the largest ship in Starfleet, with over 2,000 crewmembers. The Odyssey class has replaced the Galaxy and Sovereign class as the flagship class in Starfleet. Only a few ships of the class exist.

The fate of the Sovereign-class Enterprise-E remains unknown (in Star Trek Online's backstory, which is non-canon, it was destroyed in fluidic space in 2408, during a war with the Undine, better known as Species 8472).

The trailer confirms the return of the main Next Generation cast, with Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn and LeVar Burton returning as Picard, Riker, Beverly Crusher, Deanna Troi, Worf and Geordi LaForge respectively. Picard regulars Jeri Ryan and Michelle Hurd also return. The trailer also confirms the return of Brent Spiner, this time playing Data's evil twin Lore, and Daniel Davis as a hologram of Professor James Moriarty. The hologram twice previously caused havoc on the Enterprise-D after Data accidentally gave it sentience and the ability to access the ship's systems. Amanda Plummer will also play a major villain this season, an alien captain named Vadic who harbors a grudge against the Federation.

Star Trek: Picard's third season launches on Paramount+ in the USA on 16 February 2023. Hopefully it will be more consistent and focused than the previous two seasons of the show.
