Emotional Patrick Stewart unveils new Star Trek

An emotional Patrick Stewart said he was "deliriously happy" to be returning to Star Trek a generation later, telling San Diego Comic-Con that "you cannot have too many franchises in a career."
Stewart will reprise his fan-favorite role as Jean-Luc Picard in CBS's "Star Trek: Picard" after almost two decades, and presented unseen footage to a packed theater at the world's biggest pop culture fan convention.
"We never know, do we, when our best moment will be -- and that is now," he said.
His voice choking, Stewart described battling overwhelming emotions when shooting the final scenes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" years ago, and how he had felt reluctant to return to the sci-fi franchise until meeting a writing team including Pulitzer-winning author -- and now showrunner -- Michael Chabon.
"As soon as we began talking in the writers' room, that powerful emotion came surging back. And it's still right here on this platform and it's not going to go away," he said.
