If you’ve been jonesing to watch Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Picard on Star Trek but you don’t subscribe to CBS, don’t worry. You can get a partial fix on YouTube, as CBS has put the entirety of the first episode up on its YouTube channel.

Yes, you read that correctly, the entire full episode. Not a teaser, a trailer, or snippets – the whole dang thing.

You can watch the first episode of Star Trek: Picard for free on YouTube

Okay, so we embedded the episode above but you’ll have to go to YouTube to actually watch it. I guess we can’t use it to inflate our time-on-page stats, but that’s okay. You should totally go to YouTube right now and watch it. Heck, if you’re at work, keep it in another tab and just listen to the audio track – we won’t judge. You can always watch it again later, I mean how many times have you rewatched Star Trek: TNG?

  • Picard is set 20 years after 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis, with Captain Picard now retired from Starfleet after attaining the rank of Admiral
  • CBS has already renewed Picard for a second season
  • Will Whoopi Goldberg reprise her role as Guinan in season two, after Patrick Stewart invited her to rejoin the crew?

Look, are you still reading or are you watching the episode? Go, shoo, go watch Patrick Stewart in all his cantankerous glory.

Plan on catching this on YouTube? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
