What we know about Elnor:

Elnor is a young Romulan refugee who was amazingly raised by a sect of warrior nuns(!). He’s an expert in hand-to-hand combat and pretty nifty with a sword, which let’s face it, reminds me us of a Trek style Legolas! He’ll join Picard’s crew and is reportedly “fiercely” loyal to the previou Starfleet captain.

Harry Treadaway’s Narek

Narek is a handsome but mysterious Romulan agent that is currently investigating a new interest by the Romulans in the Borg and their technology. Recently featured with a Borg looking orb in a promo, it appears that Narek will look to understand its purpose. Anything else we reveal will most definitely be a spoiler!

At the end of the 24th Century, and 14 years after his retirement from Starfleet, Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) is living a quiet life on his vineyard, Chateau Picard.
