Main thing with Data is, with all respect to Brent Spiner, he kinda "could have done with shedding a few pounds" I think.  I.e. that's one chubby face.

And I still don't understand what an elf is doing there.  It's like someone tried to explain Vulcans to a character designer who knows nothing about Star Trek and has only seen Lord of the Rings.

Other than that, colour me excited.  Looks like it's a "Federation has gone to shit and Picard has to re-teach them their values" show, which is hopefully executed better than when Discovery did it.

Apparently the Elf is a Romulan whose role is to be a 'living weapon'.

That is the way he was described in any case.

It all looks so generic. Maybe to be expected in a trailer/preview thing. But so far there is nothing that marks this out as an actual, you know, Picard show, rather than 'Modern Sci-Fi Action Show #7251b'

You see, this kind of boring shit that's been done a million times before..

This is the main thing. It seems to misunderstand what people liked about Star Trek.

there was that one handheld interesting shot of picard coming down an elevator that made me think, hmm... maybe overall this trailer is giving the wrong impression that it's going to be terrible when infact, under the hood its actually a well made ting.

prob the same part of my brain that buys the lottery.

Weirdly, that trailer is not accessible in the US.

They were proudly showing off costumes from this show at the New York Comic Con the other weekend, safely housed in thick glass boxes. All of them were boring brown leather nonentities and I can't remember another thing about them.

Picard's Admiral uniform most likely from the prequel episode and maybe a flashback in the series. Stewart is at the Birmingham convention this week so might get some more info.

Just read the first issue of Picard:Countdown. It's short with not a lot in it. Wishing I had waited till all 3 were out. Few bits of info I got from it below.

Shows Picard as an Admiral with his own ship which has an enormous bridge. It's the same class of ship as the Enterprise-F from Star Trek Online. Also hints that whoever has taken command of the Enterprise is someone we know during a conversation with a familiar face. I think it also has a regular character from the upcoming series as well.

I've read it too and didn't mind it, but can't say it excited that much. It's a shame the art is a bit weak too, in some panels he looks younger than he did in The Next Gen.

It's poor likenesses that put me off reading more comics. I criticised a Doctor Who one on Twitter years ago and the writer Paul Cornell went fucking mental over it. Not like he drew it but when they don't look right it takes you out of it.

Some of the DC Trek ones in the 90's were awful!

Forty year old Picard is bad enough but the artist has made a total dogs dinner of Worf behind him.

It's the writing which is bothering me.  It doesn't scan well.  It would read much better as...

"How the hell are we supposed to protect them if we don't have knowledge of all of the locations which need our help?  How many other colonies are at risk that they're not telling us about?"

Is this show set in the original ST timeline, or the recent movies one?

The former. Same as Discovery.

Aw crap, right after D. C. Fontana too. Losing some good Trek people.

While we at it, Michael J Pollard from the episode 'Miri' died last month at the age of 80.



Considering the show finished over half a century ago this sort of thing is sadly going to be much more commonplace. The remaining stars are all in their eighties.
