Some higher up execs really don't like Star Trek or the fans and would love to release shit that would piss them off.

Perhaps, but I think it's more likely they're just targeting a much broader audience. The execs understand that you don't get butts in seats by having 3 guys talk their way out of a mysterious situation.

Just re-watched the final episode of TNG. One of my favorite episodes of TNG and a really bittersweet final scene.

The one thing I disliked about the premise of All Good Things was how Q placed the blame on Picard... but if Q hadn't gone meddling in all three time periods, the anomaly would've never been created!  Other than that, it is a fantastic way to close the series.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

He wasn’t actually blaming him. He was using that to motivate him.

New trailer for Discovery season 2 has been released..

It looks better than the first season IMO. Needlessly dark tone of season 1 appears to be gone, in favor of a lighter tone. There appears to be a season long arc, like last time. This time, it looks like they'll be doing some legit exploring!

I still don't have any idea how this is supposed to link to Spock and the prime universe, but at least this looks like a fun Star Trek adventure..

Picard is back in a new series. I have high hopes for this one.

Wait, dudes getting his own show? I thought it might have been a discovery appearance.

Cool, so this is post Nemesis?

I would like to see Picard mentor the captain of the next Enterprise, and eventually move to an admiral role.

What I'm interested to find out, is that is this going to feature Enterprise F and a new crew...

I'm on the fence.

I love Picard. Love him. But this is the same people that made Discovery. It's Alex Kurtzman behind the whole thing.


None of that, minus Stewart, is at all exciting or intriguing.

Yeah, I'll pass.

So we've got, yet another, universe to deal with now. We already had the prime timeline, the JJ Timeline, the CBS timeline, and now we're getting the CBS timeline TNG. Joy. The nature of their licensing agreement will prohibit them from making it look anything like TNG, so we're basically going to get the cool, optimistic Picard set in basement of the Nostromo.

The only part I disagree with is the cool optimistic Picard. I believe he said he was a very different Picard in this.

So I'd assume the darker more moody Picard, if anything.

Is it confirmed that this is yet another spin off timeline? I'm pretty sure they could make aesthetically different looking show, and still make it prime timeline.

And yeah, the fact that this is from the people who made Discovery is a cause for concern. But, I would wait for season 2 of DIS to see if these concern's are warranted. Season 2 looks like a step into the right direction Imo.

This. They're going to fuck this up to the point that we'll be wishing for the days of Nemesis again.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

+1.  Since I haven't seen a single second of Discovery, I have no basis for comparison other than the (mostly) constant shitting the DTF crew gives it - which I assume is warranted.  At least it isn't JJ behind this.

I'll remain cautiously and skeptically optimistic.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Yeah, that's what I was trying to get at. They're going to take cool, optimistic Picard and turn him into something he's very much not. My bet would be that in the intervening 20 years something dreadful happened to him and he's now the morally ambiguous anti-hero, in a Shakesperian style. Old Picard just doesn't fit into the modern world.

I don't know if STD is officially considered another timeline, but it is whether they cop to it or not. This show will have to be in the future of that world. Licensing would prevent them from doing the proper TNG timeline. That's why we have new Klingons, ships, uniforms, etc.

I haven't watched a second of Discovery - no interest at all. But I regret not knowing a little about it, because it seems the creative and production teams handling it are the ones that will handle the Picard series. I have heard that people are none-to-pleased with Discovery, so that makes me worry a bit.

Fingers crossed. Just like Paramount wants, I'll have to subscribe to watch this, and while I am tentatively in, they really need to make sure the quality of this Picard series lives up to the character. Because (and no offense to fans) ever since Next Gen ended, every series has been progressively worse, IMO (and I am a fan of DS9). So much so I haven't bothered with Discovery, and nothing I've read has made me remotely interested in that.

Don't bet on it. The character you know and love est putain mort. At best you'll get something akin to the First Contact Ahab Picard, but I'm not even hopeful of that.

Well, I saw one episode. Hated it. From what I gather, people who had no real interest in ST before 2009, really really liked it. People who passively enjoyed Trek also seemed to like it. Big Trek fans, however, didn't.

I am almost glad I am not an ongoing fan of current Star Trek at this point. All these different Trek universes, franchises, storylines, and behind-the-scenes drama sounds overwhelming and off-putting.

Seeing that pic makes me happy. My daughter and I are watching TNG together. This is her first time. We skipped seasons 1 and 2 (selfishly, I couldn't watch them in-whole again), but completed Season 3, and now have started Season 4 (watched "Family" last night). She loves it.

I thought the whole thing was that CBS just didn't want people making money off of their IP? Nah, they just don't want people showing them up.

Also, I wasn't familiar with this Bridge Crew game, but now that I've seen pictures it makes now sense whatsoever. If it's set in the JJ universe, why does the Enterprise D look identical to the prime version? It should be made of glass and have a warp engine that dispenses cold (non-alcoholic) beer.

I have no idea how to distinguish between the two. They're so intertwined it's hard to figure out, which is a shame because it's also the reason why nothing makes sense anymore. Actually, that sounds like a pretty good episode of Star Trek. Shame there's nobody left to make it.
