The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Ontv - BY JAY BOB­BIN

Q: When is the “Star Trek” se­ries that brings back Pa­trick Ste­wart as Picard sup­posed to start? – Greg Cook, via e-mail

A: CBS All Ac­cess is plan­ning on an early-2020 de­but for the show, which will be ti­tled – of all things – “Star Trek: Picard.” Some other char­ac­ters and ac­tors cel­e­brated for their ear­lier places in the “Trek” canon also will make ap­pear­ances on the se­ries, in­clud­ing fel­low “Star Trek: The Next Gen­er­a­tion” vet­er­ans Brent Spiner (alias Com­man­der Data), Jonathan Frakes (Com­man­der Wil­liam T. Riker) and Ma­rina Sir­tis (Coun­selor Deanna Troi), as well as Jeri Ryan (“Star Trek: Voy­ager’s” Seven of Nine).

Q: Will “Trial & Er­ror” be back? – Ben Dorsey, Prov­i­dence, R.I.

A: Ev­i­dently not, and it wasn’t for lack of Warner Bros. Tele­vi­sion try­ing to find a new home for the quirky com­edy after its two-sea­son run on NBC ended. Kristin Chenoweth – who starred in Sea­son 2 (and got great re­views) as off­beat, wealthy so­ci­ety sta­ple and sus­pected hus­band-killer Lavinia Peck-Fos­ter – in­ferred on so­cial me­dia that she would have been will­ing to make guest ap­pear­ances if a third round had been or­dered, hav­ing suc­ceeded Sea­son 1 star John Lith­gow.
