Star Trek: Picard

Yes, that is apparently what they're calling it. The first teaser for this has been released. Don't get too excited, or do depending on what you thought of Discovery; explosions are refreshingly absent.

I expect this to be just as pungent a turd as Discovery. I'll watch the pilot and second episode when they land, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Yeah, Discovery has knocked my confidence in CBS' intentions for the brand. If this turns out to be another CGI-heavy, thoughtless explodeathon, I think I'll have to call time on what was a formative franchise for me.

I didn't mind S1 Discovery, the second half being a vast improvement on the first, but everything I've read about S2 has been negative so I didn't bother even trying it.

I'm a convert to The Orville. It's everything new Trek should be.

Yep, I liked Discovery season 1 for what it was, but season 2 was a train wreck and only served to show a focus on everything about season 1 that I didn't like.

I'd hope that the reverence for the Picard character is what's driving this new series, rather than him just being a bankable name. Much as I admire Patrick Stewart, I believe he was very much in favour of the stupid dune buggy sequence in Nemesis, so I don't think he's the calm hand on the rudder that a lot of fans are expecting.

Two returns I did not see coming.

Well I'm sufficiently grabbed by that.

Here's another upload:

Everything I read about Picard suggests it's going to be a complete clusterfuck... but still I live in hope.
