On that note, I've finally got around to starting For All Mankind (Apple TV+ show: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7772588/fu ... cl_sm#cast). I knew it was from Ron Moore (he worked on TNG and the RDM version of Battlestar). I noticed that Jeff Russo is also the composer for this show as he was for Disco, Picard and a bunch of other stuff: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0751642/filmo ... _=m_nmfm_1.

I also noticed that Naren Shankar got credit for 1 ep. He was EP on The Expanse and did some work on TNG.
Anything with these guy's name on it (Ron Moore/Naren Shankar) is worth checking out. You can enter their names on IMDB.com

For anyone who wishes to watch Picard, Disco or Lower Decks, as I wrote at https://www.tivocommunity.com/community ... t-12104289, I received an email with a code MORE for a free month. It may only work for returning subscribers. Someone else posted PLAY for a free month (for new subs?).
Getting on high-horse.

If folks don't pay for access to the service (as opposed to repeatedly looking for free access)...there may not be any more of these series to watch.

Getting off high-horse.
Just sayin'
This isn't piracy though. The codes are provided deliberately. CBS has factored the cost/benefit of providing them. Some people will either stick around after the free access expires or they'll generate buzz that brings in other subscribers.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Indeed. They're marketing, attempts of customer acquisition and/or for other reasons (e.g. to gauge interest and consumer behavior including what's being watched, customer dropoff, etc.) MORE was sent via email to me and others who subscribed before in multiple emails.

PLAY was right on the top and front of cbs.com when you visited.

Unfortunately for CBS, at least before I rejoined w/the code (haven't looked since), I haven't found much other compelling content on CBS AA to justify the price they're asking.

For STD, https://variety.com/2016/biz/news/lesli ... 201865908/ says
The price Netflix paid for the new “Star Trek: Discovery” series (sight unseen as the show went straight to series) will cover the show’s production costs.

“I go to bed at night a lot happier knowing that ‘Star Trek’ is 100 percent paid for before it goes on our All Access service,” Moonves said.
Netflix caries "STD" for rest of world outside US and Canada.

I'm assuming Amazon paid big $ and similar money (https://deadline.com/2019/05/amazon-sta ... 202613248/) for Picard outside US and Canada.

I can't speak to the contractual arrangements in terms of how many seasons they've agreed upon and the criteria the sides can use to continue/cancel.

I guess this can go here.... Maybe there should be a more general Trek thread or ones for various time spans/universes (e.g. Prime vs. Kelvin/JJ-verse) or timeline for TNG thru Voyager vs. Enterprise vs. TOS?

Haven’t watched the whole panel but it seems like Patrick talks about this at around 39:45.

https://www.startrek.com/day mentions a bunch of panels on Sept 8th. I hope they'll be recorded as I need to work during the day and have some work meetings too.

I stumbled across https://www.reddit.com/r/startrek/comme ... stivities/, as well.

Panels up at https://www.youtube.com/c/cbsallaccess/videos. I've watched the Disco and Strange New Worlds panel already.

In the middle of the Picard show panel now.
