    The Ready Room: Wil Wheaton set to host Star Trek: Picard aftershow
    Ahead of Picard's highly-anticipated debut next week, CBS All Access
    has revealed that the Patrick Stewart-led Star Trek spinoff series
    will be having its own aftershow titled The Ready Room. Star Trek:
    The Next Generation series alum Wil Wheaton will host the show.
    Wheaton is best known for portraying the role of Wesley Crusher.
    His character made his last appearance in 2002's Star Trek: Nemesis
    film. The Picard aftershow is scheduled to air every Thursdays,
    beginning on January 23.

    Star Trek: Picard will tell the next story of Picard's life, taking
    place after Star Trek: Next Generation. Plot details are being kept
    under wraps, but Star Trek: Discovery creator Alex Kurtzman 
    revealed in March that it will be "a very different show from
    Discovery." He also mentioned that the series will be a "very
    thoughtful, psychological portrait in a lot of ways... Things have
    changed for [Picard] and changed him in some ways, and yet he is so
    deeply and fundamentally still Picard."

    The series will also see the return of Star Trek alums including
    Brent Spiner as Data, Jonathan Del Arco as Hugh the Borg, and Star
    Trek: Voyager's Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine along with Marina
    Sirtis as Commander Deanna Troi and Jonathan Frakes as Riker. It
    will also be featuring Santiago Cabrera (Big Little Lies), Michelle
    Hurd (Blindspot), Evan Evagora (Fantasy Island), Alison Pill (The
    Newsroom), Harry Treadaway (Mr. Mercedes, Penny Dreadful), and Isa
    Briones (American Crime Story: Versace).

    Picard will have its U.S. debut on January 23, 2020, on CBS All
    Access and will be available in more than 200 countries and
    territories on January 24, 2020, on Amazon Prime Video.

    Star Trek: Discovery co-creator and executive producer Alex
    Kurtzman will oversee development on the new show, which is not a 
    Star Trek: The Next Generation reboot but rather a continuation of
    Picard's story. Michael Chabon will serve as showrunner.

    Kurtzman will executive produce alongside Star Trek: Discovery 
    executive producer James Duff, former Discovery executive producer
    Akiva Goldsman (The Dark Tower), Michael Chabon (Spider-Man 2) and 
    Star Trek: Voyager and Discovery writer Kirsten Beyer. Also
    executive producing are Heather Kadin of Secret Hideout and
    Roddenberry Entertainment President Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, son
    of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and Roddenberry
    Entertainment COO Trevor Roth.
