More "real world". Yay?
Maybe we can have a special episode about the trials of prostate issues that get men up at all hours of the night to urinate?
TNG/DS9/TOS covered Real World issues
I suspect it'll be "extremely different" in the same way The Punisher is different from Iron Fist
Say, since the Picard series is official can it get it's own section (probably under Voyager since it takes place in 2399) ?
BTW, very excited for this show!
That would be something to ask in QSF, but I expect that it’s way too soon.
"Real World" can mean many things. A show that downplays the tech or a show that is about modern social isssues. It can be more gritty and edgy. Since I am not sure this show is going to be fully ship based I am guessing more about issues and less advanced tech will be the way they go. I am thinking something like "Lost" since they guy making it was apart of "Lost." Combine a great deal of raw human drama with a otherworldly type of mystery which in that shows case was the island. Like "Lost" I think the tech will often be very basic and even retro in how it is used. The aliens though might be the opposite and more weird than we are use to.
It needs an official name before it gets a forum. I wonder what their reveal plan is. If DSC runs straight for 14 weeks we are looking at a late April finale. I am guessing some sort of trailer will be ready by then. Hopefully there will be more details sooner.
Yeah. "Moving to the Untitled Picard Series Forum!" doesn't have a good ring to it.
More grounded and more real world, sounds like it will be less scifi, less action, more about the characters. Hopefully it will not be about Picard playing Dixon Hill all the time.
But Kurtzman also says Season 2 of Discovery is more grounded. Maybe it just means less Klingons in Picard.
He described the differences as "Discovery" being more like a bullet and the new Picard show being more contemplative like the old show. Which means a little less pew, pew pew. and more character drama or exploration or investigation. That's my guess. I think the show also will be more Picard centric and less of a ensemble like TNG and the Berman era shows were. Especially since you will have fewer ep's to work with so all of them will in some way revolve around Picard so it means Lt Craig one of your new regulars doesn't get a episode that focuses on him falling in love with a Vulcan secret agent or something like that. Unless it connects to Picard in some fashion.
I'm fine with less Klingon as long as 'Picard' got the Klingon's design & makeup right .
So... "Final Mission: The Series"?
Shame it's going to be different, I was really looking forward to seeing Michael Dorn in full DSC make-up.
Talk! With Jean-Luc Picard.
Our next guest was born on Risa, and is here to talk about toxic masculinity.
I don't think "different from Discovery" includes make-up. If there are Klingons, expect them to look like Discovery's (which, from what we've seen, are now a step closer to TMP/TNG Klingons).
As Captain Worf, I presume?
Well my new theory is a young starfleet cadet who admires Picard is going to track him down on a island and hand him his reskian flute only for him to casually toss it over his shoulder into the ocean.
Have it be cadet Sisko-Yates.
