    Does anyone even WEAR ties anymore? Except to a job interview (if there ever is one) or their wedding?

    Many government employees do for some obtuse reason, from local to federal.

    Is there a chance we'll see Picard show superhuman strength like Soong's people?

    Gods I hope not, but I seem to remember that Q has the power to grant mere humans Q powers.

    As far as we know, no. He still has a normal human lifespan with no special abilities of any kind; his new body is physically indistinguishable from a 'stock' human body. Only difference is, no Irumodic Syndrome.

    So Dr. Soong said. And Soong's ALWAYS tell the whole truth, don't they? :-)

    So, for these writers, that was the only solution for Picard's disease??? Wow.

    Looks like she might be rubbing her ear too, maybe about to make a remark that it feels weird.

    I'm looking too deeply into this.

    She's "plexing", silly!

    She's clearly a Betazoid. :D

    Maybe or just the one they wanted to used it since it tied in with other elements.

    So no possibility of Picard having a positronic brain link to the other androids? Darn it.

    Picard didn't want any 'super powers'

    BTW, I've tried this and it totally does not work as advertised.

    I can 100% see them doing an Agents of SHIELD thing where Picard unlocks the potential of his robot body like Coulson did. I sure hope not, though. Imagine the series ending with Jean-Luc doing a load of superhero fighting bollocks:lol:

    I wore them to job interviews... where I didn't get the job.

    Ironically, the job I have now, I didn't dress up for at all. I started freelance, dressed the way I normally dress (black shirt, black pants, black boots, black nails, black everything, except when I break out color every now and then... usually purple or neon), and then I was hired on a permanent basis.

    Laris and Zhaban seemed to be pretty popular as a double-act; it would be good to see more of them this season!

    Looking at those pics of Stewart and Brady in LA...

    [​IMG]

    I suspect that the maroon half-zip top is a costume designer's nod to Picard's previous uniforms without actually putting him in a uniform. Even the combination of black trousers and a bluish-grey jacket is still within the overall colour-scheme of the First Contact uniforms.

    It seems a bit heavy-handed as a reference but I can't believe that they didn't know this when they gave him those clothes...!!


    More interestingly, look at this other pic:

    [​IMG]

    The guy holding the sunshade / umbrella may be wearing a baseball cap and a facemask but he also seems to be wearing the *exact* same black cargo pants and maroon top as Stewart. Stunt double perhaps...?
