Alex Kurtzman continued to assuage some fans' concerns by saying that season three wouldn't break from established Star Trek canon because of 900-year time jump, and he also promised that fans would always have their expectations challenged. "The past is written, but we are left to write the future", Picard says in the trailer.

Picard is then heard saying "I came here to find safety but one is never safe from the past", and new character Dahj (Isa Briones) is seen asking Picard for help from someone who is after her. Picard heads to the Federation in San Francisco, and spells out his name to someone who says, "It's nice to see you up and around again" which Picard isn't pleased to hear. There were huge reactions in the room (and I'm sure at home) when Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) entered with two blasters, as well as the return of Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Troi (Marina Sirtis), who now have a kid together. Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout) serves as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer (Star Trek: Discovery) serves as supervising producer. His previous very first officer's response is a nod to their sophisticated historical past on "The Up coming Era". "Believe me, I know better", Riker laughingly answers. "Patrick [Stewart] did not want it to be a "Next Generation" reunion show".

"To be part of a cast that looks like this and writers who look like they do, bringing a diverse life experience and using that experience to tell these stories", Cruz said. "We did not want it to be, 'Oh, there's Riker!'" Well, the usually optimistic Star Trek future doesn't look to be all to bright and cheery anymore. It also seems Michael Burnham is separated from the rest of her crew mates for a considerable period of time in season three, as we see her go through several different hairstyles in a single shuttlepod, suggesting she spends a lot of time away from her Discovery family all alone.

During the panel, executive producer Alex Kurtzman announced that the next installments of "Star Trek: Short Treks" will begin rolling out today, with the first new short "Q&A" available to stream right now on CBS All Access. Titled "Q&A", the Short Treks follows Spock's first day on the U.S.S. Enterprise, while Spock and Number One are stuck in a turbo lift.
