Christmas Special

The Picards and Mrs Warboys embark upon a hellish holiday to Portugal. After an entanglement with the police, they finally arrive at their unpleasant villa. Mrs Warboys finds love with her Portuguese penpal Alfonso, donkeys follow Jean Luc around, a paparazzo pursues the group trying to retrieve some lucrative snaps and a boxer tries to find his inner anger...which becomes much easier after Jean Luc accidentally allows a donkey to pizz in his Jaccuzi.

Would Picard be Remain or Leave?

Can definitely see an episode where half of a planet is duped by some opportunistic chancers to vote for seceding from the Federation. Picard is in the area at the time and talks about it a lot

Christmas Special

Picard struggles with the moral quandary of whether to disobey General Order 87 and break it to a civilisation that Father Christmas doesn't actually exist.

Picard making a rousing speech, about why planetary societies should be allowed to develop freely, segues into a rant about how these new 5 Latinum slips are too small and fiddly.

After watching that teaser, I'm going to feel let down if it isn't a Star Trek themed remake of The Prisoner.

You don't see him, but it is him playing over the title card that comes up at the end.

Honest.

Oh, yes.  I hear it now.  I still think that they should have actually shown Picard playing his piccolo though.  TV is a visual medium and was practically invented to show people playing piccolos.

It's nice that Picard was able to return to the family home and take up the wine making business with the burnt remains of his dead brother and nephew.

That always struck me as weird. How the hell does anything burn down in the 24th century, let alone with people inside? Emergency services could just beam them out... Ooh. Ooooooohhh! Head canon (I hate this term btw) alert! The Romulans killed them as part of their eventually-abandoned plan to replace Picard with Shinzon.

I dislike these kinds of things in general, and this bunch in particular - why does any Trek roundtable discussion always have one participant with an annoying voice? - but it was interesting all the same, for all they’re talking about something that’s not going to happen.

The showrunner, Alex Kurtzman, was replaced by Michael Chabon mid-production.  The test screening was a disaster and reportedly, they're filming the majority of scenes on green screen, with sets to be added in later, via CGI, in post-production and now to top it all off, Picard has a dog.

Yeah, this is gonna be shite.

Chabon is your actual proper acclaimed writer, so if anyone could turn this mess around than maybe he can. But it does sound like Kurtzman has really screwed the pooch(sorry).

Seeing that poster has uncovered depths of sorrow I thought years of cynicism had worn away to naught. For a brief moment I learned to feel again. All joy is fleeting, despair abides in novel and infinite new combinations.

Lol, that dog is a big mood, tho

Great news! Michael Chabon is a very good novelist with a long history of writing clever, thoughtful genre fiction. His involvement in this show has been the main thing that's given me hope for it, and that's now gone up a few notches. Reading the press release, I sort of suspect that this was a pre-planned transition, as Kurtzman was always going to have a lot on his plate overseeing the various upcoming spin-offs, and honestly Chabon seemed like too big of a name to be limited to a simple staff writer gig.

Any specifics on this? What "test screening"? A google search just throws up a few links to clickbait-looking youtube vlogs that I can't be bothered sifting through.

Can't find any source at all for this. There are certainly physical sets visible in some of the behind the scenes photos that have been leaked so far. Also I'm not sure how they could already have had a test screening were this the case?

I've been searching my soul about that poster and I'm not sure I really have any strong feeling about the concept of Jean-Luc Picard owning a dog.

The Starfleet badge on the dog’s collar is inscribed “No. 1.” Yes, really.

Kurtzman had been rumoured to have been fired from his position as showrunner, months in advance of the announcment of Chabon replacing him.  This isn't a pre-planned thing at all.  Although CBS are doing their darnedest to downplay the negative whispers going throughout the grapevine.

Any specifics on this? What "test screening"? A google search just throws up a few links to clickbait-looking youtube vlogs that I can't be bothered sifting through.

A test screening as reported to one of said 'clickbait-looking youtube vlogs', provided by a trusted source, who along with the vloger, has been proven to be right about such things time and time again.

Can't find any source at all for this. There are certainly physical sets visible in some of the behind the scenes photos that have been leaked so far.

The report said that they were shooting an inordinately disproportionate amount of scenes in front of a green screen, not that they weren't any physical sets at all.  Naturally, CBS is going to choose behind the scenes shots from the times when there were physical sets present.

Also I'm not sure how they could already have had a test screening were this the case?

Because that's how test screenings work.  To varying degrees, the movie or show test screened is not complete.  There are often cases where actors will be in front of a green screen (or with a temporary background dropped in).  There will be scenes where the audience is shown nothing more than a storyboard or an animatic.  Special effects will be incomplete and there will be a temp soundtrack, taken from others movies and TV shows.  This is standard practice.  The entire point of a test screening is to try and ascertain what, if anything, needs fixing prior to spending a huge heap of money on CGI and other post-production techniques.

I am not sure how anyone can feel any sort of anger or get any sort of insight into the quality of the show from that picture

It's not that he has a dog, it's that it's the wrong type of dog.  Picard is a total poodle man.  CBS simply do not understand the character.
