    I don't like their strategy or plan for Star Trek at all, it should not be behind a pay wall, the show should be aired over the network free as its been in the past...

    I wholeheartedly agree. But there's a definite trend of media going the streaming route. And it's spreading.

    I want this show to happen, How much longer will we have to wait?

    Off topic News, I just found out the Kelvin Timeline is no longer canon to the franchise,



    It seems The Prime timeline, "Which is an alternate timeline that the old Spock came from," wasn't canon to the Original timeline. So, This means things Like discovery and the reboot movies don't matter to the original timeline.

    Discovery may be popular I'm not sure, But, It's sure as heck isn't canon it seems, The reboots and Discovery happened in a parallel universe that is somewhat different from the original Kirk Enterprise, Tribbles Five-year mission original timeline.

    TNG and I assume the Picard Series will be canon to the Original timeline. I know these timeline issues may not mean much to some folks, But Franchises these days are using continuity like timelines To tell alternate stories that don't really retcon the originals

    Define Retcon:
    ret·con
    /ˈretkän/
    1. 1.
      (in a film, television series, or other fictional work) a piece of new information that imposes a different interpretation on previously described events, typically used to facilitate a dramatic plot shift or account for an inconsistency.
      "we're given a retcon for Wilf's absence from Donna's wedding in ‘The Runaway Bride’: he had Spanish Flu"
    verb
    1. 1.
      revise (an aspect of a fictional work) retrospectively, typically by introducing a piece of new information that imposes a different interpretation on previously described events.
      "I think fans get more upset when characters act blatantly out of established type, or when things get retconned"

    They do this so if an idea or story isn't well received they can just say, That it never really mattered to the original story arcs and they can have these, Fresh starts to reboot nearly infinite times. It's a way to rehash stories and milk series for every dollar in honesty.

    Here are some more details about this upcoming show...Perhaps its going to reveal to us a unique perspective in that era in the Star Trek timeline, in past series the main perspective has been on a Federation Captain and the Crew in a structured Star Fleet atmosphere...

    Star Trek: Picard producer reveals 7 new details about series

    Star Trek: Picard team is pulling back the veil on the upcoming series that returns Patrick Stewart to role he played for seven seasons on the 1990s syndicated hit series Star Trek: The Next Generation and in four feature films.

    Executive producer Alex Kurtzman and showrunner Michael Chabon gave EW some new hints about Jean-Luc Picard’s journey in the upcoming CBS All-Access series. Until now, the only teaser has shown Picard in retirement at his family’s vineyard in France and included a cryptic voiceover suggesting the admiral left Starfleet after he led an armada on a rescue mission to the doomed planet Romulus.

    Here are seven things we learned:

    1. Yes, Picard is going back into space. Strangely enough for a Trek series, nothing space-y has yet been shown regarding the new show, which has entirely terrestrial marketing images so far. Even our basic questions like, “Can you at least say if the show is set on a spaceship?” were dodged when we asked the producers. But Kurtzman confirms the new Star Trek will live up to its name. “Events began to unfold that conspire to take Picard back to the stars,” Kurtzman says.

    2. But that doesn’t mean Picard is returning to Starfleet. “He will [go to space],” Kurtzman adds, “but not in a way that anyone expects.” What does that mean? It sounds like Picard won’t simply get drafted back into commanding a starship — especially considering what Kurtzman reveals next.

    3. Picard seeks to fight a specific injustice, yet won’t have his usual resources. “Because he’s no longer in Starfleet, he no longer carries the weight of that behind him,” Kurtzman says. “In some ways, it’s easier to be [a great man] when you’re a captain. But it’s an entirely different thing when you don’t have an army behind you. When you want to get something done and fight an injustice, how do you do that when you’re really only one man?”

    4. His quest will be a serialized story in the first season, unlike the episodic The Next Generation. “Which isn’t necessarily new for Star Trek,” Chabon said, noting that Discovery is often serialized too, “but that is new for Picard.”

    5. Picard is “haunted” and older but fundamentally remains the same character. “There are many things that haunt Picard,” Kurtzman teases, adding the ill-fated Romulus mission is just one of those things. And Chabon notes the series will incorporate that the character is a different age. “He’s a lot older and we’re not shying away from that at all — we’re dealing with a man who’s in a very different place in his life,” Chabon says. Yet at the same time, Picard will still be the man you know and love. “It was terribly important to us that he remains fundamentally Picard,” Kurtzman says. “You will not see a version that betrays the man we loved from Next Generation. We’re not doing that. But we wanted to put a character with that level of morality and leadership and who always does the right thing no matter how hard the circumstances … we wanted to put that to the test.”

    6. Other Next Generation actor appearances are not being ruled out. The producers just want to make sure they’re not, you know, cheesy. “What we don’t want to do is just throw in cameos,” Kurtzman says. “There would have to be an incredibly specific story reason [for them to be there].” Former Next Gen star Jonathan Frakes was previously announced as directing two episodes in the first season, but there’s no word if he appears on camera. The show’s new regular cast members (Alison Pill, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Harry Treadaway) are not playing any familiar Next Gen characters, Kurtzman confirms.

    7. Stewart as Picard is better than you’ve ever seen him. “The quality of Patrick’s acting, if anything, has gotten even better over time and he was already a master,” Chabon says. “He has an ability to hold you riveted even when he’s just sitting and listening.” Naturally. Picard is always at his best when he looks … engaged.

    The Star Trek: Picard panel is Saturday at Comic-Con and EW will have full coverage.

    I would assume so, However, there is always hope, sometimes we get really lucky and people stick around for longer than expected.

    Brent Spiner, I don't tell people this because it's embarrassing, I got into an argument with him on Twitter once.
    He ultimately won, lol, I don't know if he literally won or that I was just star-struck and just give him the point, But, yeah, That happened lol.

    Yeah here it is I found it lol

    Now, I may come off as I dick on Twitter there. at that time, but I have a very good excuse. I was a complete dick.. I used to troll all the star trek people, William Shatner was by far the most fun to troll.

    I can't see it. Maybe you can get a part on the show. Instead of a Klingon you could be a Dickon. :lol:
    Never mind, there it is. :Thumbsup:

    I knew a guy once who could do that with his neck, I have no idea if it was because of a surgery or genetics or why he could but dude could expand his neck in a weird way like that.


    Ohh, I wonder if the Q will return to? Q always had a fascination with Picard in particular.

    You guys may want to watch it, from the Trailer, IT seems Picard is trying to resurrect Data or find all his pieces so he can bring him back. it seems legit cool.

    I think the mystery woman may be a Q, That's just me.

    I know I'm burning the Thread up. But If there is a place to put news about the Picard series, It's here,



    In this one, Stewart and Spiner answer some questions about the series,

    Patrick Explains, Today's world, is a darker scarier place than it was twenty years ago, In turn, Star Trek Picard will reflect this sentiment as well, It's going to be a Darker more surreal Kind of Star Trek, That benefits our Times, He explains, The star trek universe as we knew it twenty years ago, has changed.
