Viewers got a glimpse of new cast members Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway as well. 

The trailer centers on a wistful Picard's efforts to adapt to civilian life just as an unforeseen woman -  played by Isa Briones - appears before him, looking for help. 

After this happens, Picard is urged to return to Starfleet to run a new crew and connect with old friends again.
