New Star Trek series coming early next year - Star Trek: Picard (trailer)

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



From the Wikipedia article - Star Trek: Picard


Star Trek: Picard is an upcoming American web television series created for CBS All Access by executive producer Alex Kurtzman. It will be the eighth series in the Star Trek franchise and centers on the character Jean-Luc Picard. Set at the end of the 24th century, twenty years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), the storyline is affected by the destruction of Romulus referenced in the film Star Trek (2009), as well as the death of Data from the aforementioned Nemesis.

Patrick Stewart executive produces the series and stars as Picard, reprising his role from Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as other Star Trek media. Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway, and Isa Briones also star. Several actors from previous Star Trek series will also reprise their roles, including Brent Spiner, Jeri Ryan, Marina Sirtis, and Jonathan Frakes. The series was first rumored in June 2018 when Kurtzman began his expansion, and was officially announced that August after months of negotiations with Stewart, who had previously said he would not return to the franchise after Nemesis. Filming began in California in April 2019, with the series' official title announced a month later.

Star Trek: Picard is expected to premiere in early 2020, and its first season will consist of ten episodes.

From an article at Comicbook.com - Patrick Stewart Thinks Fans May Be Shocked By Picard


 “We are looking at a new world with new objectives, problems and issues that could not have been raised when we were making The Next Generation and I found that very exciting,” Stewart says. “It’s very exciting and people will be surprised and perhaps even shocked.”

Finally! Something in the prime timeline, a couple of decades after the big 3 (TNG/DS9/VOY). I've been waiting for some kind of continuation like this ever since Voyager ended.

The trailer looks pretty good, IMO. Hate that it's another streaming-only show, though.

Sisco was da bomb. He dealt with the Borg, the Cardassians, the Dominion, run a space station that was beyond multicultural and he was divine. How can you beat that?

It turned out he had an advantage, though, being half wormhole alien and all. :)

DS9 is still my favorite series, with Voyager coming in a close second. TNG was great at the time, but in my opinion it hasn't aged very well. A lot of it just feels so cheesy now. Always loved Patrick Stewart as Picard, though.

I wouldn't call Picard a replacement.  He was written to be an entirely different kind of captain from Kirk.  More cerebral, more disciplined, and much more likely to use diplomacy than phasers and photon torpedoes, but was never a pushover.

He did, but he was much more quick to throw in the diplomacy towel and turn to force, and was more likely to break the Prime Directive than Picard was (although Picard skated the line a time or two).

There was a reason Picard was often a mediator between opposing cultures - he was better at bringing two sides together.  An important skill for a leader, IMO.

Episode three is very good.  It picks up from where mirror mirror left off in the double universe episode.  The two part finale is very good as well.  It’s too bad that some other group broke all the rules for fan created spinoffs of the copyright material and CBS pulled the plug on everyone, thus ending these episodes at 11 total.

I watched them all too. Star Trek Phase II/New Voyages/Continues is actually quite good, especially for being fan made. It captured the sprit and feel of the original series quite well. There are also fan made ST movies. Have you seen ST: Of Gods and Men? Or ST: Horizon? 

There are a couple fan series of less quality, but otherwise watchable: ST: Odyssey and Hidden Frontier

She does sound like a completely normal person now.  I'm wondering what name she'll be using, her Borg designation or her birth name of Annika? Maybe just Ann? That would be weird. Probably still Seven, though.

I'm also wondering if she and Chakotay got together in the different timelime created when Janeway went back for Voyager in the series finale. They were shown as being a couple in the other one.

She could answer a LOT of questions. I really hope the writers have done their homework and aren't going be too messy with the prime canon.

Worst couple in Trek, IMO.  Janeway and Chakotay would have been much more believable.  They had chemistry right from the pilot episode.

Agree completely. I thought for a long time the writers were setting us up for a Janekotay or Chakotway thing in the end. It sure seemed like that was the direction they were taking us.

 
 
 
sandy-2021492
4.2.14  sandy-2021492  replied to  Dignitatem Societatis @4.2.13    4 weeks ago

Yeah.  I know that Mulgrew was the one who put a stop to the Janeway/Chakotay relationship during the run of the show.  And it was always assumed that she wouldn't have a romantic relationship because she was in command, and Starfleet frowned on fraternization.  But that didn't stop Kirk (what would?) or even the stickler-for-protocol Picard, who dated a subordinate.

I kinda figured they'd end up together in the end, once she was no longer his commanding officer.  They seemed so much more suited than Chakotay and Seven.

Genesis was average at best. But not terrible like Spock's Brain or threshold. The latter 2 are definite contenders. 

DS9 had "Move Along Home." ST: TNG had many average or bad episodes (and a lot of great ones). While most were not overly terrible, I'd say the worst TNG episode was "Sub Rosa."

What about Enterprise?

Any episode with Q is a winner in my book and I hope the Picard series features Q at least once. It's not a Picard episode/series without Q showing up at least once.

Lots of make up. Perhaps digital editing. After all, Brent Spiner's Data makes an appearance and he still looks good as Data.

Not at all. You didn't miss anything but a canon-bashing hot mess with a bad pop-rock song for its opening theme. I don't think I can adequately describe how much I despised ENT at the time. It was as if the producers were giving the fan base a big middle finger after everyone had faithfully invested 14 years or so into the overlapping, common canon-developing storylines of TNG, DS9, and VOY. I forced myself to suffer about half-way through the second season while it was airing, but said to hell with it after that.

A few years ago I broke down and bought the DVDs out of a longing for the glory days of Trek, but as I started watching them I was quickly reminded that ENT wasn't actually a part of that. I still haven't finished the entire series. The only thing I really like about what I've seen so far is Jeffrey Combs as the Andorian, Shran. Oh, and one episode called Carbon Creek. Not nearly enough to redeem the entire show, though, IMO.

I know other people seem to genuinely like it, but I think of it mostly as an insult to fans. It wasn't surprising at all when it was cancelled. The only surprising thing is that it lasted as long as it did.

LOL. Sorry for the rant. I'm guess I'm still just pissed off about the whole thing. Some of us take our Star Trek a bit too seriously, I suppose. :p

I was in middle school when TNG came out, and I loved it then, and do still.  I think it probably came closer to Roddenberry's vision of the future than TOS really could.  I remember reading that nobody would accept a female first officer, so Majel Barrett couldn't continue as Number One as in the pilot.  By the 80s, a female officer who did more than answer the phone (apologies to Nichelle Nichols) and bring the captain coffee didn't really raise any eyebrows.

That's cool we all have our own tastes.  For me they rank Discovery, Voyager, DS9, TNG, original.  We're pretty close to being the same age but for me TNG was just to much talking and we never had a TV when I was growing up so by the time I had my own and caught the originals on reruns they were just too campy and dated to enjoy.

He actually does a good deal of voice over work, I've caught several of the documentaries he's voiced and he just makes you want to listen

I stopped watching star wars because for awhile on Wednesday's it's role playing night and my wife made me wear a chewbacca costume. Then she got weird and wanted to have a threesome with a midget dressed like an ewok.

Now I have PTSD when I see anything star wars

I've been watching fan videos on YouTube talking about the trailer. It seems the guy who played Hugh Borg in TNG is in the credits (Jonathan Del Arco), and some think he's the one lying on the table with his Borg implants removed. Is Hugh coming back as another Borg rescue like Seven and Picard?

People have noticed that in the scene with the armed Romulan guards walking on the catwalk, there's Borg regeneration alcoves in the background and some writing down on the catwalk that says "This facility has gone 5843 days without an assimilation". LOL, but WTF?

Some people are wondering if the girl could be Picard's daughter, or even a repaired Lal (Data's 'daughter'). 

Also, what's up with Picard's Romulan crew member, the long-haired guy who looks like an elf from Lord of the Rings? Even the character's name (Elnor) sounds LOTR-ish. That's a little weird, right? What were they thinking? 

I did like the uniforms shown outside Starfleet HQ, though. They look like the DS9 and Voyager style (with the job classification colors going from shoulder to shoulder and everything else black), but with actual collars at the neckline instead of a gray or purple turtleneck undershirt.

And at the very end, was that really Data, or was it B-4 from Nemesis?

Didn't care for that at all.  I get that they've changed the look of alien species as prosthetics and special effects have improved (especially the Klingons), but I thought the Romulans were fine in the TNG/DS9/VGR era.  Same with the Klingons.  You're right about the LOTR esthetic.  I expect him to pull a sword or jump on a horse.

Speaking of prosthetics, it doesn't look like they're even bothering to put those little v-shaped ridges on their foreheads like they did in the TNG era. How much trouble could those possibly be?

Maybe they'll be the ones with swords and horses.

Well, yeah, but that was due to limitations in prosthetics and makeup at the time.  Since TNG, you don't need a tribble to identify a Klingon trying to pass as human.

Rodenberry was big on Aliens looking more like Humans back in the day. Since his death, things have changed, but not that much. Klingon looks have morphed quite a bit throughout the years in their forehead structures though, but if you look at what General Chang looked like in "The undiscovered Country", it kinda went back to the way it "Used to be".

Romulans have always looked like Humans with pointed eyebrows and pointy ears. The only change that occurred there, was a bigger "V" bump in their foreheads after 10 years or so of TV. They used to always look like plain ol' Vulcans, which was pretty much a human with pointy ears and pointy eyebrows (Spock Type).

I read recently that Spock was intended to have red skin, to play up the proposed Vulcan resemblance to a devil, but it didn't show up well on black and white tv sets, so they went with a greenish tint, instead.

Not sure about that myself, but I've heard that. The Only actual "Black and White" Star Trek episode I remember seeing on TV was "The Cage/The Menagerie". Not sure why, as I was always told ALL star Trek episodes were filmed in color. Maybe it was the "Black and White" TV thing you were speaking of.

I don't know about that. I think it was mostly a budget issue on the original series. He also executive produced The Next Generation and oversaw the new makeup and prosthetics for aliens like the Klingons, Cardassians, and Ferengi.

Even in the days of Computer generating, Most Aliens in any of the "Star Trek type series, had two arms, two legs and one head. No squiggly things running around the planets or the ships (Exceptions would be like the "Crystalline Entity"or Tribble, or the sparkly cloud jrSmiley_18_smiley_image.gif that was in love with a human,etc.). Probably the "Humanist" coming out in Rodenberry's ideas.

Also, the Horta.

But it's still easier, even with CGI, to produce aliens for the screen which are at least vaguely humanoid.  Most shows still aren't using CGI to produce characters entirely from scratch - they use costuming and prosthetics or motion-capture technology with human actors still providing motion and voice.

Too much CGI, and you end up with Henry Cavill's mouth from "Justice League", and nobody wants that.

Right click on any tab at the top of the screen and you'll see it in the options below 'pin tab'.

They added the feature a while back to silence annoying auto play videos on people's favorite websites. They used to have an option to shut down auto play altogether, but for some reason they swapped that for a mute option. Probably had something to do with ad money.

Sad to hear. A bit of a shock, too. I might have to watch a good Nog episode later today. Maybe 'Valiant' or 'The Magnificent Ferengi'. One is serious and dark, the other is comical silliness. Maybe I'll watch them both.

RIP Aron.

I knew he had some sort of chronic kidney problem that contributed to his short stature.  Last night, his wife (or fiance?) announced on social media that he was in critical condition, and this morning, I read that he had passed.

I didn't even know about his kidney problem. I just now read about it in an article about his death. Apparently he'd already had a transplant by the time he was on DS9.

I feel like getting out my DVDs and watching Valiant right now.

Didn't you say somewhere that you didn't get very far into DS9? If you have Netflix, then that is one episode I would highly recommend. Seriously. It's on several of the DS9 top ten lists that I've seen, and as far as I'm concerned it's one of the better episodes in all of Trek. It's mostly a stand-alone. All you need to know going in is that it takes place during the Dominion War, and that the ship (the Valiant) is the sister ship of DS9's over-powered and over-gunned starship, the Defiant (initially designed to fight the Borg).

If you have the time, it's season 6, episode 22. I guarantee you'll like it.

Yeah. I suppose that one and its followup, 'It's Only a Paper Moon', would make a pretty good combo to watch in the wake of his death.

I watched 'Valiant' earlier, and then I watched the pilot again for some reason. He looked so young in the first season, even though he had to be 23 or 24 at the time.

What amazed me about the Ferengi's was their portrayal as less than sharp knives in a drawer and not a super technologically advanced race.  In one of the original ST episodes where Kirk lost his memory and ended up as an Indian deity after emerging from the very oblisque that wiped his memory.  It was supposed to repel meteors but had malfunctioned.   I would have not thought the Ferengi race had that kind of technology that far back in their history.

Nog once stated that it took the Ferengi twice as long (10,000 yrs) to achieve technological similarity with humans, and they had to buy warp technology.
