Re: Star Trek: Picard (warning: possible spoilers!)

Words can not express how little I want to see this. I doubt I have the will to skip it entirely, but I'll probably watch it in dribs and drabs, as I do STD. Or the Expanse, of which I'm still barely into the start of the last season. The former Fringe people who have taken control of the Trek universe like to fill their episodes with what they consider to be the most-loved characters and memes of Star Trek, resulting in the Enterprise (and nearly every other ship) getting blown up over and over, snippets of old plots being re-woven into new story lines, and, now...Q. This is the Terran Empire all over again. It took me literally months to watch that...

Re: Star Trek: Picard (warning: possible spoilers!)

At last: a "Golden Girls" for Star Trek fans. ;) It also reminds me of the last time I watched a minute or two of "Grey's Anatomy." I only really watched the first season of that, and it was downright Frightening to see the original cast as they are now.

Re: Star Trek: Picard (warning: possible spoilers!)

I stopped watching Trek much when all the story lines went over to some flavor of fighting a war. That wasn't Roddenberry's vision for how the future might look.

I still have fond memories of TNG, that is still the best series that I'm familiar with.

I'm guessing you're referring to https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Dominion_War in DS9. There was also https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Xindi_incident in Enterprise.

Indeed, Trek has taken a number of different directions ever since Gene died. I do agree what many say about TNG about everyone and the Federation mostly being too perfect then.

Disco and Picard have definitely taken Trek in a different direction. I can't speak to LD or Prodigy as I don't care about those, esp. Prodigy.

Re: Star Trek: Picard (warning: possible spoilers!)

I think I've seen it on er, the streaming service that has Picard - the name escapes me. Looks like they've abandoned the idea for a "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" remake with Picard and Q, and are doing something more ambitious. Good. ;)

Re: Star Trek: Picard (warning: possible spoilers!)

Well, it's now Paramount+ formerly aka CBS All Access. Gotta love the "creativity" out there. Got a streaming service? End it with +. There was even https://www.salesforce.com/news/press-r ... g-service/ (Salesforce+). :roll:

Then, there was this recently announced name change: https://www.cnet.com/news/viacomcbs-ann ... paramount/.

Re: Star Trek: Picard (warning: possible spoilers!)

THAT was what threw me off - I signed up for CBS AA and it became Paramount
