    I'll see if they have in jokes, like the actor who played Q popping up and having Picard pausing and saying, 'you look like someone I used to know'

    It's amazing how much material is out there today; I've said it about this Golden Age of Television, I've said it about the jaw-dropping selections in our indie theaters and e-tailers...and I tend to say it everytime somebody starts a niive new "Nobody's-Playing-Any-Good-Rock-Anymore". All one needs to do, is un-learn the way they used to discover new content, and instead discover new places to discover it (he said, standing in a virtual music community chat board read by about 30,000 members daily...:shh: )

    That, my friends, is one beat-dead horse!

    I think this is a good idea, but I worry they are going to kill off Dr. Crusher instead of hiring Gates McFadden on a full-time basis.

    Yes, perhaps they are using the character to get viewers, but I see nothing else about this that is redundant. Sorta like what was done with "Lou Grant".

    Did not consider that. Yikes.

  8. Well, his last big movie role was "poop" the emoticon, so putting him into a Star Trek series really is a bold move. ;)

  9. I don't know anyone personally who has seen it!!?!?
  10. I haven't. If it was on Netflix or HuLu I would have watched at least a couple of episodes.

    I came to this thread to see how quickly this would dissolve into people crapping all over a show they haven't yet seen, and I was not disappointed.

    I have not seen the newest Trek, so it is hard for me to comment. But it seems perfectly plausible that Capt Picard would be out there somewhere. Engage.

    But as any Trek fan knows there are an unlimited number of alternate timelines.

    This isn’t a revival of TNG ... it doesn’t sound like any of the old characters are going to be in it as regulars. But that doesn’t mean they’ll all be dead.

    Good; then the "tardies" can see what all the thumbs-ups were about.

    Discovery is amazing, and those that refuse to watch because they don't want to pay $5.99 a month are missing out.

    I think it helped that he seemed to look older than his actual age when he started Star Trek ( i think he was 47 when cast way back in 1986). He looked like he was already pushing 60. He's seemed to only age 10 years over the last 30. He's 78 years old and he looks about 68. He pretty much looks the same as he did when he did the first xmen movie...which is almost 20 years old itself!

    Anyway glad to see ol' Picard back on the screen. My favorite all time Star Trek captain ( sorry Jim.) .

    I tend to agree with that, however, I most recently saw him in the series Blunt Talk. When he was shown in closeups, you could tell he was significantly older. The eyes give it away. But yeah, from a distance he looks remarkably like he did twenty odd years ago.

    Dr. Pepper What, me worry?

    They could pay for a month, binge and drop. If folks really want to binge fast, then they might even be able to fit it all within the free trial period.

    By “desperate” do you mean “something that will please most Star Trek fans”?

    I think you're thinking of Riker and Troi who got married. Riker was promoted to Captain of the Titan and Troi went along, presumably to be counselor on the Titan. Data died but he had his memories implanted into his brother B-4, so there's a loophole way he could be brought back.

    As far as I know, Beverly and Picard decided not to act on their feelings toward the end of TNG, and I would imagine she'd still be around as CMO unless she got promoted or transferred.
