The trailer, which featured first-time Picard appearances by Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis was played twice for the rabid audience. 

Alex Kurtzman fielded a question about how Patrick Stewart reacted after being asked to return as Picard, with Stewart at first being adverse to the idea of returning, but was persuaded by the ideas the show’s producers laid out for his character. 

Meanwhile, more details – although no solid plot points – were revealed about the various new characters in Star Trek: Picard. Alison Pill, for example, mentioned how Picard’s mission is what her character “spent her entire life dreaming about.” Also, Michelle Hurd noted how her character and Chris Rio share a unique strong bond, and that she couldn’t wait until fans discover it.
