Star Trek fans finally have their first look at the return of Jean-Luc Picard, courtesy of this week’s CBS television upfront presentations.
CBS revealed the title to the show–simply: Star Trek: Picard. Along with a logo that, interestingly, utilizes the Star Trek title font associated with The Original Series, Star Trek: Discovery, and Kirk’s era, instead of the Next Generation era that Picard hails from.
Buzzfeed News correspondent Kate Aurther also snapped a still from a short scene presented at the upfronts:

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Rob Owen describes the short clip as thus:
Hmmm @CBS upfront had a clip (or probably something made just for upfront) of "Star Trek: Picard" (what they called it) with a Starfleet officer asking Jean-Luc, "May I have your name, please, sir?" as Picard appears incredulous. @StarTrek

Additional information places Star Trek: Picard at 18 years past the events of Star Trek: Nemesis (putting Picard in the year 2397 for those of us who don’t feel like checking Memory Alpha for the 147th time!) with Picard’s show dealing with the fallout of Romulus’ destruction from the 2009 Star Trek film (which happened in 2387).
Star Trek: Picard is intending to debut its 10-episode first season in late 2019, on CBS All Access.
