The next generation of limited edition MetroCards has arrived.

The special cards, which you can get at six Manhattan subway stations through February 16, feature Captain Jean-Luc Picard (starring the commanding Patrick Stewart) and his dog, Dog/Number One, in celebration of CBS All Access' Star Trek: Picard premiere–no doubt thrilling New York City's Trekkies.

The Picard MetroCards can be purchased at vending machines while Dog/Number One cards are only available at the booths at the following stations:

  • 14th St./7th Ave (1, 2, 3 trains)
  • 28th St./7th Ave (1)
  • 57th St./6th Ave (F)
  • 5th Ave/42nd St. (7)
  • 14th St./Union Sq. (L, N, R, W, 4, 5, 6)
  • 28th St./Broadway – (R, W)

The entire 14th St./Union Sq. station has been decked out with Picard posters and branding for the premiere, which will last through February.

The show follows Picard's journey into the next chapter of his life after the death of Commander Data and the destruction of Romulus–both events that deeply affect him. The first episode, which aired on Thursday, has a 93 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The MTA typically releases limited edition MetroCards a few times a year and in the past has featured the Wu-Tang Clan, Game of Thrones, David Bowie, and more recently, the children's book, The Snowy Day.
