Star Trek: Picard - 'Best Trek Ever' says everyone

Recommended Posts

It is telling that the positive reactions thus far are basically only I RECOGNISE THIS THING.

 

Wonder how long remember this will be able to carry it.

Modern drama is tending towards season long , or multi-season story arcs, but I still really like the short distilled sci-fi ideas that you would see being explored in a single episode of ST:TNG.

 

Are we going to get that again, or pew-pew and court intrigue like countless other shows? I hope at least a little.

If you haven't already then you should definitely watch The Orville. It's exactly what you're looking for.

I agree.  I always wonder if it is great or terrible for writers to be on a show like TNG.  Well, probably not terrible, maybe scary, but whilst you can tell a story about anything you essentially have to start with a blank page.  Writing for a show like CSI, well half the script probably already exists as a template that you just adapt each week.  Coming to the end of a 26 episode season on TNG and having to find a new idea to tell a story about is probably a combination of fun and terrifying.

Was that a group of Soong-type androids in the trailer? Really intrigued as to how they're being treated, given Picard's "Measure of a Man" speech.

Data pretty much looks like he did in Nemesis, which is quite incredible.

I mean in the latest trailer. They've deflated him.

 

Have you seen what Brent Spiner looks like nowadays? That's no enviable task!

What if... Data/B4 isn't real but he's an implant in Picard's head.

Given he's wearing his old TNG-era uniform, I'm pretty sure it isn't really Data. Dream sequence or holodeck, surely, playing the role of Android Jiminy Cricket.

Oh that is definitely a dream sequence. I meant other than that. Which would explain the dream sequence.

They explain Data in the cold open of episode one by saying that Picard left him out in the sun a bit long.

Regarding the reliance on old characters, and the new ones not looking great.....tbh I'm only seeing them all as supporting characters that are there to facilitate Picards arc, and that is fine by me. I mean, the show has his fucking name on it! I'm tuning in for him, couldnt care less about the rest of em.

Wait until season 3 when they're really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Remember that black guy at the helm freaking out in the gif? He's back!

This looks like it's going to follow in the footsteps of Nemesis i.e all the familiar faces are there, it just feels like it's from a different franchise entirely

Not impossible I guess, as he should still be teaching at Starfleet Academy. Hopefully, Picard makes a big thing of encouraging him to come on one last mission, then just sticks him in the transporter room for five seasons.

Hoping this turns out to just be One Foot In The Grave in space.

Nah he'd get a full episode of being horribly tortured and then everything will be fine at the end.

Counterpoint - how long will Patrick Stewart be able to carry this?
