Would be fun to see him reprise Dixon Hill one more time
Articles of the Federation with President Jean Luc Picard
i'd watch this. i mean, as long as president picard isn't embroiled in a scandal in which he's accused of colluding with the romulans in order to take office.
Naw. That's President Sisko.
If Picard finds another Iconian portal and is now at a point in his life where he thinks “hang the temporal prime directive” then we could see a fun adventure archaeology show.
Then again I was a big fan of the UK show “time team” when that was on and that was all about archaeology.
So who knows - maybe it’ll be as much about archaeology as DSC was about the Klingon war?
Sounds like it might be a long term series and not a limited one based on comments from CBS All Access.
Or Lara Croft for that matter.
And everything might be changed by one incredible alien artifact in the pilot...
Well, since STO already used Iconians...
Anyway, I actually think in the future we might divide franchise into regular installments (6 live action series until now) and secondary spin-offs (SS), the first being TAS, second one being NEO-Picard and so on...
Stewart said something about "a few years" in reference to where the Picard character might go, so it sure sounds like he wants it to last more than just a single year. So he should keep the gym membership and the kale smoothies.
His wife is only 39, so he has personal reasons to stay in good shape as well.
The worst thing I have read about him is arthritis in his hands, for which he uses medical marijuana.
Not to mention every Mummy movie ever made.
Because he is not your only actor. CGI is cheaper than live action, look at the Clone Wars series. You also have sets to worry about, which aren't an issue in CGI. Even Star Trek took the animated route after TOS.
Yeah..they're not doing a cartoon here.
Studio heads and movie execs pretty much think the opposite of what you suggest above. They almost never watch a show flop and then say, "lets do something else similar". They only do "similar" shows when the first one (or first in a long time), is a hit. So, more Trek on TV is directly related to DSC's success.
One other thing, CBS probably saw a pretty significant cancellation of subscriptions to CBSAA after DSC ended. That directly affects revenue. More Trek would likely soften the mass exodus after the next DSC season finale.
ah, that makes more sense, thank you!
I’d also guess the Picard show would bring in more subscribers overall than DSC did too.
Onwards and upwards Trek!
Hmmm.....I know that in Star Trek, you had lot's of ancient races mentioned, some evolved, some destroyed themselves, some were killed off by their androids, etc. So it's not quite as you describe, imo, for the original series. Can't speak much for the 24th century shows since I don't recall too much of what they established in that regard.
So little to not at all?
Yep. TOS was positively littered with lost and extinct civilizations leaving dangerous artifacts or computer-gods behind, or whose descendants had lost since forgotten their former technology or whatever.
Now if only some enterprising Trek author could write a novel about those ancient times.
I miss that about Star Trek. The only interesting concept Discovery has given us has to go to the recycling bin immediately in the name of the Prime universe.
