With the new Star Trek series set to premiere toward the end of this year, the first teaser trailer for the series has arrived.

'Star Trek: Picard' marks Patrick Stewart's return to his most iconic role of Jean-Luc Picard for the first time in 25 years - at least on TV screens.

It'll be available on Amazon Prime in Ireland, but the network that's responsible for it, CBS, have revealed the first look.

The minute-long teaser shows the former Starfleet captain walking through his vineyard in LaBarre, France as a voiceover says:

“Fifteen years ago today, you led us out of the darkness. You commanded the greatest rescue armada in history — then the unimaginable. What did that cost you? Your faith? Your faith in us? Your faith in yourself? Tell us: why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?”
