Default Star Trek Picard

I saw the teaser for the the new Star Trek Picard. It begins 15 years after Admiral Picard retires. I was so glad to see Patrick Steward again. I think I'm going to enjoy it.

It'll tank, just like all the other recent efforts to revive it(Star Trek).

Even 'Sir' Patrick Stewart can't save the train wreck...I hear there are problems already.

Get real and realise the only sci-fi we'll be suckling on for the near future is The Expanse.

I'm curious about it. I have heard that they had some pretty negative feedback at some early screening of the show.

I'm not enthusiastic. I was powerfully disappointed by season two of Discovery, and even though I'm interested in conceptually "experimental" Star Trek, I feel like a lot of people are hoping for TNG: Phase II and aren't going to be happy with whatever ends up happening.

I'm reserving judgment until I see it. I never listen to critics, most of them are just failed hacks who are jealous.

I will reserve my thoughts until i see it. Best to go in with low expectations and hope it surpasses them.

The new trailer is out and it looks great, Data, 7 of 9 and even Hugh The Borg are in it. I was glad to see 7 as that means we should be seeing characters from TNG, VOY and DS9, I'm not sure anyone from Enterprise or TOS would still be alive. They also showed a Borg ship.

2 episodes in and I'm out.

Romulan 'time machine' + F bomb are just the tip of the iceberg. Bad directing, atrocious script writing, handwavium plot points etc.

Garbage.

Patrick Stewart should be ashamed.

Edit : Absolute garbage.

I hesitate to call it absolute garbage. It went in some directions I really wish it hadn't, and it is not shaping up to be the final outing I would have liked for Picard's character, but I don't hate it. I really wanted it to be good, and it would almost be easier to bear if it were outright unwatchable (as I found Discovery to be), but it's not. It's almost the worst of both worlds (see what I did there? ) in that it's not bad enough to dismiss but not good enough to really enjoy.

What I liked:
The pacing, I like how slowly things are developing (aside from some hectic parts in the first episode), and I enjoy seeing Patrick Stewart again, and I do like that it's not just re-treading old ground.

What I disliked:
Everything else. My single biggest complaint is the script writing and dialogue. I had the same complaint with Discovery, and this is a bit better, but it's still really cringe-inducing at times.

I dislike the set-design and wardrobe, also the hair and costuming, actually pretty much every design in the show. The Star Trek universe had a very cohesive feel to it and the style stayed true from the motion picture era of TOS through Nemesis. The uniforms seem to have devolved back to the early DS9/VOY era, and every other aspect doesn't fit in with Star Trek at all.

There were plenty of inconsistencies with the other shows, but they all felt like they belonged together. Even Enterprise blended better with TOS than Picard does with TNG/DS9.

That's my two cents, I'm only 2 episodes in. Like I began by saying though, I don't hate it. I can't say I like or enjoy it though. It's leagues ahead of Stargate: Origins in every regard though, so I guess we can be thankful Star Trek hasn't fallen to that level yet.

I would like to revise my above statement; now 4 episodes in I do, in fact, hate it. Not as much as Discovery, but it's a runner up.

Star Trek: Picard’ Renewed for Season 2 at CBS All Access

https://startrekguide.com/2019/12/16...cbs-all-access

Patrick Stewart’s return as Captain Picard isn’t going to be a one-season affair.

CBS All Access has renewed “Star Trek: Picard” for a second season, over a month before its first season debuts.

The new show stars Stewart as he reprises his iconic, titular role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on “: The Next Generation.” Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora also star. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.

Stewart and CBS’s “Star Trek” universe chief Alex Kurtzman executive produce alongside Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. Aaron Baiers serves as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer is a supervising producer.

Chabon had previously been named as the showrunner back in June, but the prolific author recently set an adaptation of his “Kavalier and Clay” novels at Showtime as part of an overall deal with CBS TV Studios, meaning that he is slated to step away from “Picard” to run that other project sometime in 2020.

Season 1 of “Picard” will premiere on Jan. 23, 2020. declined to comment.

News of the renewal became evident when the California Film Commission announced which shows would be receiving tax credits in the upcoming year on Monday morning. A season 2 of “Star Trek: Picard” was on the list alongside four new shows including “Nine Perfect Strangers” starring and executive produced by Nicole Kidman, and the “Untitled Showtime Lakers Project” at HBO which hails from executive producer Adam McKay.

“Picard” is the latest in a growing line of series that CBS is rolling out to build up its “Star Trek” TV universe. In addition to “Star Trek: Discovery,” which finished airing its second season on All Access back in April, upcoming shows include the animated comedy “Star Trek: Lower Decks” and a Nickelodeon animated series as well. A drama series centered on Michelle Yeoh’s character from “Discovery” is also currently in development at All Access.
