    So much to take in. Seeing Data and Seven where icing on the cake and unexpected.(was her implant cgi?)

    The moment I squealed was when Picard was in the turtleneck and put on the FC/DS9/VOY combadge.

    Then you have the Borg cube.

    And disassembled Data/Lore/B4.

    I've also just started watching The Newsroom, and I was delighted to see Maggie will be a part of Picard's crew!

    Also are the current Starfleet crew all wearing the AGT combadge? If so, that's a nice bit of continuity right there.

    It seems awfully “white”.

    I think they included 7 of 9 because first she fits well into a story including the Borg and second because she is a very popular character. It likely also didn't hurt that Jery Ryan kept busy since VOY and appeared in a few series/movies and still looks really good.

    Absolutely loved it. Wasn’t expecting (or frankly hoping for) so many returning names and faces but the ones that are coming back seem to make sense in what little context we have.

    One “retcon” that I personally welcome: ridgeless Romulans. https://twitter.com/trekcore/status/1152696057794564097?s=21

    PS. Loved to see the 2370s combadge. Resin and spray paint included.

    Maybe the girls is some sort of a borg grown human or possibly a new potential borg queen.

    Michelle Hurd and Santiago Cabrera are part of the main cast, who appear to be a part of Picard's ragtag crew.

    I think they revealed somewhere that he was programmed to age, so technically they could probably get away with not deaging him.

    The girl does have a name, so I guess she's probably not a Borg then.

    Me, too. Romulans should look like Vulcans. Biological speaking they are practically the same species. The Romulans only left Vulcan a few thousand years ago.

    Wow. I mean I was excited about Picard anyway, but now I'm freaking out!

    Data? Seven of Nine? Hugh Borg? :wtf:

    And we have Riker and Troi confirmed as well? :wtf:

    With all of this talk about the show being set after the destruction of Hobus, I was leaning toward believing the irrevocably damaging events were related to the Romulans. Having Seven and Hugh there as well as the Borg cube? Now that's really thrown me for a loop.

    They've done a great job and keeping the casting surprises tight lipped.

    So which one is Hugh? So much to process!

    I love how the beardy vulcanoid is the least vulcan-looking Vulcan or romulan we've ever seen.

    So, what I personally got from the trailer is that the Romulans are gathering up Borg technology and the girl is connected to it some how.

    I wonder if the holding room with the children and the guards is in fact *in* the Borg cube, which has been adapted as a Romulan test bed site for recovering and reverse engineering Borg technology.

    Also, I wondered if the shot of Picard at Vasquez Rocks might be the same setting as the dusty villa with what appear to be simply clothed Vulcan-esque inhabitants. They look like Mintakans, and the production has photographed the rock outcropping in a way that closely mirrors its appearance in "Who Watches the Watchers?". I can't imagine why Picard would go back there, though, so might one or both of these be a different Vulcan or Vulcan-adjacent world?

    Apologies if this has been mentioned already (this thread is moving fast), but it sure looks like Picard is being interviewed here. Is this what we heard in the teaser trailer?

    Finally, some Federation television! One of my biggest grievances about world building is finally being soothed a bit. I'm wondering if we've ever seen the end product of their news media before, I only seem to recall seeing reporters. But yeah, the narration from the teaser trailer definitely sounded like a professional interview.

    I'm surprised we haven't heard about Micheal Dorn coming back as Worf, he's always been one of the most vocal about wanting to come back
