Jonathan Frakes is not only directing episodes of the first season of Star Trek: Picard but as the world now knows, he's also appearing in it and he spoke recently at San Diego Comic Con about his appearance on the show.

I hadn’t done it for… Nemesis was what? 17 years, 18 years [ago]. Luckily it was with my old pal, and I had just directed two episodes of the show. So I did [it] with Patrick who is just… He’s crushing it on this series. He’s just on fire. The trailer’s awesome.

And about his onscreen wife, Deanna Troi aka Marina Sirtis.

Yeah, the stuff is great. I can’t obviously tell you, but Marina and I… Well, you’ll see where we are. We’re together, and it’s quite… it’s non-military. I’ll say that.

With Star Trek Las Vegas imminent, there's sure to be plenty more news heading our way shortly.
