    It must take a special kind of stupid brilliance to take a potentially huge success like a Picard series and then destroy any of it's chances by having Picard long since quitting Starfleet - and not being the great man we knew. Plus no guest appearances from any of his former crewmates.

    Perhaps they should just call this STAR TREK: DISASTER.

    I think Patrick might ultimately have to take his share of the blame if this thing is D.O.A. Rather than using his position to protect TNG, it - incredibly - doesn't sound to me like he gets what Star Trek and it's optimistic view of humanity was all about.

    At the end of the day, on the old show, he was just a hired hand. And sometimes hired hands think they know better than the creatives who have been in charge of them for many years previously. Witness Shatner's STAR TREK V as proof of giving actor's story input!

    Pill, Treadaway, Briones Join The “Picard” Series

    Alison Pill (“Scott Pilgrim,” “The Newsroom”), Harry Treadaway (“Penny Dreadful,” “Mr. Mercedes”) and Isa Briones (“Takers”) are all set for series regular roles in the untitled Jean-Luc Picard series set up at CBS All Access.


    Set two decades after the events of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” the story will follow the former U.S.S. Enterprise captain in the next phase of his life. The trio joins a cast that includes Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd and Evan Evagora.

    Officially no plot or character details are out. Unofficially it’s said the story will play up into Picard’s love of archaeology with a mission to revolve around some sort of alien artefact that’s been discovered.

    It’s believed Cabrera will play Picard’s pilot for the mission who is also a skilled thief with a dodgy moral compass. Hurd is tipped to play a former Starfleet intelligence officer with an addiction problem, while Evagora is rumored to be a young Romulan martial artist and potential bodyguard extremely devoted to Picard.

    Judging by leaked character descriptions, Treadaway will most likely play a positronic brain specialist terrified of space travel. One of the other two will play a woman described as “smart, agile but socially inept and immature”.

    Alex Kurtzman, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Patrick Stewart, Michael Chabon, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth will serve as executive producers. The show is slated to debut sometime towards the end of 2019. Hanelle Culpepper will direct the first two episodes.

    On the upside, I've heard a rumour that STAR TREK DISCOVERY has been cancelled...

    I'm always pleased to hear when someone's managed to rid themselves of an STD. :emoji_wink:

    Agreed. Patrick saying "This is not the Picard we knew" doesn't fill me with much optimism - and no doubt he will be embittered/broken/angry or some variation of those. In fact, totally at odds with all we liked about the character.

    Please God, let DISCOVERY be cancelled.

    So,you're saying he'll most likely be a sad piece of shit?

    How appropriate.

    Now, if I could only find a suitable emoji... :emoji_confused:

    I don't like the fact that the character has apparently
    left Starfleet and that there will be zero guest appearances by other TNG characters. Also the fact that he will be some kind of ageing Indiana Jones seeking out lost treasures with a young side-kick
    doesn't help either.

    Thank God we can simply go back and watch TNG! :emoji_grin:

    Hang on just a sec...

    If I remember my Indiana Jones mythology correctly, wasn't the French guy in it the bad guy? :emoji_astonished:

    Has Picard finally turned to the dark side? :emoji_confused:
