The Star Trek: Next Generation Enterprise crew is back together and it feels so good.

Part of the Star Trek Hall H panel at Comic-Con Saturday involved the first look at the previously announced epic reunion coming in the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard.

Executive producer Alex Kurtzman revealed character portraits for Patrick Stewart's Jean-Luc Picard, LeVar Burton's Geordi La Forge, Michael Dorn's Worf, Jonathan Frakes' William Riker, Gates McFadden's Dr. Beverly Crusher, and Marina Sirtis' Deanna Troi alongside Jeri Ryan's Seven of Nine and Michelle Hurd's Raffi.

"You're only as good as those around you," Picard says in a teaser video released alongside the portrait imagery.

"These days on the Enterprise made me a better man, a better father, a better friend," Forge says.

"Do not presume what I have and have not sacrificed for this," Dorn remarks in full Worf makeup.

Stewart and McFadden appeared alongside Kurtzman and executive producer Rod Roddenberry at the Star Trek panel. A specific premiere date for Picard season 3 wasn't revealed, but the show will return sometime next year.

Brent Spiner played Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation and reprised the role for Picard, in addition to playing the characters Dr. Altan Inigo Soong and Adam Soong. Spiner, too, will return for Picard season 3.

Spiner, Kurtzman teased, is "going to be an old new character."

"I remember watching the premiere of Star Trek: The Next Generation almost 34 years ago with my father like it was yesterday," Terry Matalas, the showrunner and executive producer on Picard season 3, had said in a previous statement. "It was the spark that ignited my love for science fiction. So, it's most fitting that the story of Jean-Luc Picard ends honoring the beginning, with his dearest and most loyal friends from the U.S.S. Enterprise. It would be an understatement to say that giving these characters a proper send-off is an honor. The entire Star Trek: Picard team and I can't wait for fans to experience this final, high-stakes, starship-bound adventure in season 3!"
