After months of referring to the Star Trek Picard spin-off as the Star Trek Picard spin-off, CBS has finally revealed the official name of the Stark Trek Picard spin-off.
So what is it called? Star Trek: The Future Generation? Star Trek: Destiny? Star Trek: Engage?
No, it's called Star Trek: Picard.
#StarTrek: Picard will stream exclusively on @CBSAllAccess in the United States, on Amazon #PrimeVideo in more than 200 countries and territories and in Canada on Bell Media’s @SpaceChannel and OTT service @CraveCanada. @StarTrekCBS @primevideouk https://t.co/f3mVPY449M pic.twitter.com/iDrmtDiQLg- Star Trek (@StarTrek) May 15, 2019
The title was announced at the CBS and CBS All Access Upfronts presentation, where they also revealed the first official still from the show: Sir Patrick Stewart wearing a jacket and a turtleneck.
Unfortunately, the still hasn't been officially released yet so we can't cover it without getting in trouble, but you're really not missing out on much.
Sir Patrick's The Next Generation co-star Jonathan Frakes will direct some episodes, while one of Discovery's directors, Hanelle Culpepper, will oversee the first two. This will make her the first woman in the franchise's 50+ year history to direct the launch of a Trek instalment.

Meanwhile, a UK broadcaster for the show has been announced. Unfortunately, unlike the rest of the franchise, Netflix is not that broadcaster.
At least in the US, it will still air on CBS All Access.
