Might be the greatest thing since sliced bread but I'll never know - not paying for broadcast TV for a single show, when I already pay for CBS via cable.

I love Picard, but I'm not ponying up for yet another streaming service. Especially for just one show.

Would he be playing a starship captain, or some kind of elder statesman role? He's 78 years old. I know in Star Trek's time humans lived longer, and he does look pretty good for his age, but come on, that's old to be a believable captain.

No details along those lines yet. But yeah, he's well past due for making Admiral.

I've been hoping for them to continue the REAL Star Trek story onward (hear that, JJ?) ever since they cancelled Voyager, but I will NOT watch a pay channel.

At least it's not another stupid prequel series. . .

Wait a few years until they get a few seasons in the can.

I fear this will be a worse SJW mess than ST:TNG by covering all our current "modern problems" in their parallel future universe.

He mentioned in the announcement that he might not be a starship captain. He also said that it would take place about twenty years after the last film. Elder statesman sounds about right.

Maybe Picard will be transitioning.

Really? We're complaining about social issues in TNG when the original series had the first interracial kiss on TV? It also had at least one episode right off the top of my head that was about nothing BUT race and another one that was thinly veiled as "don't destroy nature just for the sake of profit".

As I said, those are just off the top of my head.

Complaining or commenting, you be the judge. Also there is a bit of a difference between an interacial kiss and the thought of seeing a transitioning Picard in drag.

I try to forget about those ultra preachy episodes...as well as any featuring Wesley, Worf's son, and Troy's mom. Some were just Stupid.

I believe the preachy ones were from when Roddenberry was in charge?

The one where they got the cryogenically preserved people from a capsule really turned me off.
They whole, no want for wealth or need for money.

Bullshit. People do manual labor for FREE?

Eh. Not a big Picard fan, and Patrick Stewart has lost any sort of support I ever had for him with all his weird roles he’s played the last few years. Always thought he was a bit too much of a goody 2 shoes as a starship captain.

I’m in.

Discovery is decent, so I’m more optimistic than usual for another new Stat Trek series.

That's one of the great unresolved contradictions in the Star Trek universe.

The shows reference Roddenberry's "puppies and rainbows and no desire for payment" ideals, while at the same time making references to Starfleet personnel receiving compensation in the form of things like transporter credits, replicator credits, holodeck credits, etc. And it's clearly shown that Starfleet members receive some sort of payment, even if it's just to allow them to deal with traders and merchants outside of Starfleet, such as all the Starfleet personnel gambling and buying drinks at Quark's bar on DS9, going on vacations to alien resort worlds, etc.
