Update: Due to a Space.com office and studio closure for coronavirus outbreak prevention, our Picard Panel recap show is on hiatus for now. We look forward to beaming back in as soon as we can.In the meantime, take a look at our previous recaps below.

Hey, space fans! How do you like your tea? 

If you answered "Earl Grey," hot, well then do we have a live show for you. On Friday's through March, Space.com is taking a look at "Star Trek: Picard (opens in new tab)," the latest installment in the "Star Trek" franchise on the streaming service CBS All Access. Our Picard Panel will air live here and on our YouTube channel VideofromSpace (opens in new tab) today at 4 p.m. EST (2100 GMT)

Sir Patrick Stewart reprises his role as the iconic Jean-Luc Picard, the former captain of the USS Enterprise from "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

"Star Trek: Picard" is set decades after the TNG series (opens in new tab), picking up plot lines from "Nemesis" and 2009's "Star Trek" reboot, while exploring themes of loss and redemption. Oh, and the Borg are involved somehow (opens in new tab), which is awesome. 

So yes, we're excited. 

Each Friday in the show's run (it airs each week on Thursdays), Space.com's Chelsea Gohd will moderate a panel of Trek fans from Space.com and our friends to discuss that week's episode and take your questions about the show and its place in Trek lore. 

So beam on in and join us at the Picard table this week! We'll save you a seat in the Ready Room!
