    I think it basically means less sci-fi weirdness, more character drama.

    Maybe it is a one man show, like Stewart's version of A Christmas Carol that caught Bob Justman's eye all those years ago? That would be something unique and worth giving a try.

    I wonder if we'll see that vineyard from All Good Thubgs...?

    soil is involved, so yes that could be grounding

    My guess: “If you don’t like what we did with Discovery, you might still like this! Sign up for CBS All Access!!”

    What is Thubgs? :)

    If you are posting from your phone then I sympathize, happens to me all the time.

    Drop the B and you have "All Good Thugs". It's the prequel to "All Good Things", where Picard gets stabbed by the Nausiccans. Coming to you on CBS All Access in 2020.

    I have a feeling it's going to be a much smaller scope, character-driven show that won't be about traveling the galaxy. It will probably focus on Picard in some role or other on Earth. Good drama and acting, but not a lot of fun or sci-fi adventure.

    Which might be interesting, but probably disappointing and boring for me.


    It'll probably end up being "Shakespeare in Space", which the Klingons will love.

    Yep, autocorrect fail. This forum's software seems really bad with Android's keyboard.
