to be honest that kinda looked like a fake ad in a Hunger Games kinda movie, that voice over was cheesy as fuuuuuuuck. Hype for show deflating.


No air date yet, but will be only available on CBS All Access in 2019, same as Star Trek Discovery. Also a Star Trek animated series will be releasing.

It's difficult to get hyped about them going with the Discovery ship designs and aesthetic.

Its not 100% confirmed but CBS was trying to force the TV production rights people to change the design because CBS doesn't like them I'm pretty sure and wanted the Picard show to stand alone as its own line of toys and merchandise and that people expected more TNG aesthetic and less Discovery (which is true, nobody gives a fuck about Discovery merchandise)

The people who are licensing the rights said not possible but "we'll make some small alterations" and CBS said they sucked was my take on it.

Why fund a show that sucks? Production shutdown please until everything is sorted out.

Only good part of that was how they used a flute for the theme at the end. And the only reason that was good was because of the nostalgia it invoked.

Another show I will not be watching because it should be on TV.
I don't get how these networks don't understand this. Just air it on CBS AND sell the rights to Netflix and you'll fucking destroy. People want Star Trek. Instead you're just lighting money on fire trying to prop a failed service and encouraging people not to watch your show. There is 0 chance I ever subscribe to CBS All Access or whatever the fuck it's called. Air it on CBS? I guaranteed DVR it. Put it on Netflix? I watch it for sure at some point. CBS All Access? I might not even care enough to pirate it.

I subbed to CBS All Access for Discovery and it was a huge PITA to cancel it. It wouldn't work on the website for some reason and I wasn't going to call them. I just put a gift card on the account that only had a $1 on it. I'll never sub to them again.

I mean... All Good Things was fine.

Picard retired to wine country and ran a vinyard and got future space-parkinsons. I think he married Beverly didn't he?

Just watch RLM reviews of the TNG movies for an entirely adequate dissertation on why TNG was the best star trek, and how it was specific to a few writers. Yes, even better than DS9 which was itself awesome. TNG was more Star Trekky though.

I don't see how a star trek named Picard could be good. Not saying it to be edgy or whatever... what made TNG good was the idea of an ethical space cappn opposed to Cowboy Kirk. That there is room in the Star Trek Federation for both kinds of leader is important, and it make Kirk pop out even more. Naming it Picard means that the show writers probably don't get what made TNG so popular. And lets not forget, the first two seasons of TNG were just straight BAD, so it's not like the writers of TNG knew either at first. DS9 first season is plenty rough too, and Sisko is his own sort of Iconic captain.

It's social commentary and it always has been. When they started to deviate from that is when ST went into the shitter. I'm lookin at you Voyager.

kirk gets the "he's a cowboy" nonsense all the time, but that isn't really who he was. people mistake the kobayashi maru cheating as him being a rule breaking chaotic captain but he wasn't. he didn't cheat at the kobayashi maru, he changed the parameters. it's semantics, but if he was cheating, starfleet would have booted him, instead they gave him a commendation for original thinking. the point of it was to show that he stares at the no-win scenario and uses starfleet ingenuity to win.

point is, there absolutely is room for picard and kirk to be captains in the same starfleet. they just have different purposes. picard is a diplomat, kirk is an explorer.

So we might get a TNG sequel after all, just by accident.

Sounds like CBS threw down the gauntlet on the Discovery beef. I doubt they will reshoot it.
