Star Trek: Picard - 17 Huge Details Everyone Missed In Trailer 2

The disturbing hints, Easter Eggs and hidden details in the new teaser...

In January 2020, we get to see more of where Jean-Luc Picard boldly went after Star Trek: The Next Generation's movies dried up and the Enterprise D's crew were (mostly) put out to pasture, bar a few appearances on Deep Space Nine, Voyager and - infamously - on Enterprise. And now, on the back of a very intriguing first trailer, we've got a second, courtesy of New York Comic Con.

Usually, with second trailers, there can be a temptation to reuse lots of the footage from the first and though there is a little overlap here - like the reappearance of the Borg cube, which is inevitably, given its impact - this second teaser is packed with new details and new story hints. And just as with the first one, there's a lot to unpack that might not necessarily be picked up on first watch.

So let's break it down.

17. Picard's New Badge

The opening of the CBS All Access trailer - which has been trimmed off some of the other uploads and the Amazon Prime version played in the UK - we see Picard in the "uniform" he'll be wearing for the majority of the show's run.

It was assumed after the first trailer that the badge he's wearing - which replaces his old comms badge, presumably because it's got an inbuilt tracking device and he's not on an authorised mission - was a Picard family emblem. That's not the case - the badge appears to be a mysterious new addition.

The look of it suggests Romulan language, only stylised somewhat into a design that looks like a mermaid. That would fit the image in Data's painting as well, but more of that soon. Perhaps this is a gift from a Romulan who holds him in high regard?
