    I don't think it is actually called Star Trek Picard - and as such the logo would not be final.

    But as Star Trek in the italic Horizon font is the Masterbrand for the franchise, that would explain it's use here. I don't think the TNG fonts will be coming back, they do look a little dated. Nor do I think we will go to the Voyager and DS9 fonts.

    Maybe something like the movie poster fonts?

    I know but something has to get him out on the spaceship with this new crew. I was just tossing Riker in their as maybe a small cameo. I think we will see some established characters form time to time but in smaller roles at best. As for Romulus I heard the show was a decade after TNG ended. The decade after Romulus blew up stuff was fan misunderstandings. I think Spock going missing and Romulus exploded will be be recent events on the show. I am unsure how long that happened after the last TNG movie in "Nemesis."

    Found out I had a font that's close to the subtitle font on my computer

    The subtitle fonts are called SQUARE something or other, they are like the signage on the ship's hull, IIRC

    As I just said, the indications are that this is not just another spaceship show. It's something different, more of a character drama. Picard is not a starship captain anymore; he's in a very different place in his life.

    Then you heard wrong. TNG ended 25 years ago. Nemesis came out 16 years ago. Patrick Stewart is a lot older now, and so Picard must be as well. Memory Alpha puts the show around 2398, 19 years after Nemesis and 11 years after the Romulus supernova.

    (Besides, a decade after TNG ended would be 2381, five years before Romulus exploded, so that certainly can't be the case.)

    They just revealed it was the official name. That's the point of this thread.

    I know Picard isn't going to be a captain. But I do think a ship will be involved. It just won't be about exploring space like a Starfleet ship. The cast even includes people playing crew members like a Captain and pilot and a Holographic Doctor and a ex Starfleet Intelligence type of person.

    I do see most episodes actually being planet based and I also don't expect space battles or anything like that. I am thinking more "Battlestar Galatica" if they didn't have the Cylons chasing them.

    Regarding the TOS Font, CBS had been using it for years for products, even before Discovery came out.

    Lmfao that after all the secrecy about the name they go with that. I was expecting a title that spoiled something, if it was held back like that.

    Often the reason for not announcing something isn't because it's some big secret, but just because they haven't decided what it is yet. Titles are tricky. Sometimes a bunch of different possibilities are considered and debated and the final decision is put off until relatively late in the process. I think I recently saw a quote from a film director (one of the Avengers: Endgame directors, maybe) saying they usually don't decide for sure on a title until they see a rough cut of the first trailer and see how it looks on the screen.

    Deep Space Nine was originally a placeholder title that nobody in the team developing the show particularly liked, but they got in the habit of using it until they could think of something better, and when the time came that they had to announce a title in the press release, they still didn't have anything better, so they just went with it out of necessity.

    Picard was born in 2305 if this is set in 2398, he'll be 93.
