Star Trek comics writer Mike Johnson (the same duo who wrote the Star Trek: Picard -- No Man's Land audio drama in the gap between the show's first two seasons ) to write the series.

Star Trek comics staple Angel Hernandez draws the three-issue tale, which sees Jean-Luc Picard back aboard the ship that bears his first command's name, the USS Stargazer.

Cristobal Rios had been in command of the USS Stargazer when Picard's second season began. However, with Rios choosing to stay in the past in Picard's second season finale,

the ship is without a captain unless Starfleet decides to make Picard's field commission of Seven of Nine permanent,

and Seven chooses to accept. But for this mission, it sounds like Jean-Luc himself is once again in command of the Stargazer.

Picard served aboard the Constellation-class Stargazer, with its distinctive four-nacelle design, for 22 years before transferring to the Enterprise.

The synopsis also teases some returning elements from Picard's history. What pre-warp planet could he be revisiting? And could this friend he's reaching out to be Seven,

one of the former Enterprise crew, or someone else? When Star Trek: Picard -- Stargazer #1 goes on sale in August, fans will find out. Here's the solicitation information.
