do you think it's wise for the producers of the picard show to keep the details so close to the vest

    To give a fuller explanation that serves to get the point across, basically trying to emulate the snappy, wisecracking dialogue and characterisation of Marvel movies and the DC TV shows like Supergirl and The Flash to try to appeal to a younger demographic even if it feels out of place in Star Trek.

    I actually watch the DC TV shows and DSC which both appeal to my older sensibilities.

    Maybe your Star Trek is TNG. TOS and the better parts of DS9, IMHO, actually lightened up from time to time.

    How is it out of place if TOS presented us with a captain usually joking with executive officers at the end of an episode?

    I'll take snappy dialogue over stolid, expository technobabble any day.

    I like to think that the human race will never evolve beyond snark, quips, and wisecracks.

    And I suspect Doctor McCoy would agree with me. :)

    It's real hard to sell much Trek merchandise to kids. Folks like Anovos and Eaglemoss do well by selling a (relatively) little bit of high-priced merch to older folks who have credit cards.
