Trailer has be excited. I don't like Seven of Nine, so I'm a little BOOO about that.

Meh.

The whole thing about needing a crew? Literally all Picard would have to do is call up the old Enterprise crew, he'd have a ship in an instant.

I withhold judgement until later trailers.

CBS is however obviously following the JJ Trek again, if the the F&F action scenes are any indication.

Will wait to see more, but the de-aging on Brent Spiner just looks terrible. Since Data got blowed up at the end of Nemesis, this is probably B4.

But I'd rather they come up with some crazy Noonian Soon aging program to make age like a human so the de-aging CGI doesn't look so terrible.

Damn Stewart looks horrible, I know I've aged bad, but geesh, they waited too long to try this.

Agree, Data looked ridiculous.

Well Stewart is 79 now. Not much to do about that.

Although if the wanted to do some Noonian soone flashbacks Spiners the right age to do it without makeup.

Exactly my point, they waited too long.
79 is even older than heart attack bernie!!!
bernie looks bad, Stewart looks much worse :( and he's going to be fighting his way around the galaxy??

I have read a lot of reviews and I'm not hopeful. True Trekkies are giving it terrible reviews. I'm NOT trying to bring politics into this but Stewart came out himself in a recent interview complaining about how everyone got along in TNG and how bad the world is with Boris Johnson and Trump. He says England is fucked now and America will be for 4 more years. I don't want my Star Trek captain having TDS permeate a SciFi series. The series is set in the future when Trump/Johnson/the whole current situation should be so far in the past it's only a historical memory. Instead it sounds like it's going to be front and center.

Just do good SciFi and leave the Hollywood political attitudes out of it.

Sounds like it's getting good reviews. Do I need to be familiar with all the stories to enjoy this?

At their very core and origin, Star Trek and Star Wars are reflective of politics of the time and have a great deal of social commentary.

Forget anything I posted before this.

I LOVED the first episode of Picard. The acting is amazing. The connections with TNG grabbed at my emotions. The plot is intriguing. This show blows Discovery out of the water. I'm hooked already.

PDS. Picard Derangement Syndrome. :p

Glad to hear that this show is decent. I'm going to hold off watching it until all episodes of the season air.
Discovery was OK, but it really didn't hit the traditional Star Trek marks.
