Beneath his coat, the doting father wore a maroon shirt and kept comfy between scenes in a pair of black trainers.

Patrick appeared to be taking directions from crew members, who wore face masks in keeping with pandemic protocol.

The X Men actor was offered a black face mask presented on a tray by a member of the show’s crew.

It comes after last month’s news that Star Trek: Picard will see the return of an ominous character in season two.

The villain Q will be featured in the upcoming sophomore season, with John de Lancie reprising the role in the franchise.

He’ll be back to face Partrick’s titular Picard, who died in season one’s finale however had his consciousness transferred to a quantum simulator, allowing the character to live on.

Paramount+ revealed the news in April at a First Contact Day virtual session.

Q – who holds the power to all reality – first appeared in Star Trek: Next Generation, and was then seen in Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Lower Decks.

This follows the news that Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Jeri Ryan, Orla Brady, and Brent Spiner will all feature in season two of Picard.

Season one of Star Trek: Picard aired last year.

It’s been 34 years since the twice-divorced father-of-two originated Picard on CBS series Star Trek: The Next Generation.

He quickly became a cultural icon as the revered captain of the USS Enterprise.

Digital Spy revealed this month that season two and three are filming back-to-back, after the shooting of the show’s second instalment was delayed due to the pandemic.
