    Didn't Picard say something about being the first Picard in Starfleet? Going there against the wishes of his father?

    That directly contradicts your previous post.

    And? This is Star Trek, no prior statement from characters matter in the slightest.

    Section 31 hid in the shadows for three centuries... until they didn’t. Cloaking tech was theoretical... until it wasn’t.

    They don't talk about the Vulcan side of the family.

    It was PRIME Lorca. *grin*

    I'm pretty sure Picard said he was the first Picard to ever leave the solar system.

    Prime Lorca could still be alive. I hear Jason Isaacs wants to be back on the show.

    Only one of Picard's great-great grandpas was a Picard. Hopefully.

    That's why making your own family tree is a risky business, you could discover that you don't have as many ancestors as you thought.

    It’s true, Star Trek has always played somewhat fast and loose with its own continuity.

    Some series are worse in that respect than others.

    No argument there, though I think it's fair to say that when it came to continuity, TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT had the advantage of having mostly the same people working on all four series.

    As I have more friends interested in Star Trek again, thanks to Picard, I'm going to show them "Calypso" whenever I get a chance to get them into Discovery. Not only because I think it's the best thing Disco-related ever put out -- Period. -- but also because it'll whet their appetite for seeing the third season, set in The Future. And it's an excuse to get them hooked with a knock-out that lasts for less than 20 minutes.

    man agreed. i'd go so far as to say it's the best thing the franchise has put out since star trek 2009.

    I'd go so far as to say that Calypso is possibly one of Star Trek's finest offerings. A real masterclass in doing a lot with a little, from characterization to world-building to visual/aural storytelling. Yep, I'm a big fan.
