    No Klingons in the new Picard series please. I'm burnt on the Klingons.

    There really isn't. At least, there wasn't in season one.

    Also, licensed Disco t-shirts.

    They're a major ally of the Federation, not having Klingons would be weird.

    It's a big galaxy. Let it be big.

    I think that as of now, only Enterprise season 3 has done that.

    I'm fine with a Klingon character in the Picard show, but I don't want a Klingon plotline!

    I doubt the Klingons will be a big focus of the show, but I'd shocked if they didn't pop up at least once. Since the show appears to be dealing with the aftermath of the Hobus supernova, they'll pretty much have to show up in somewhere along the line. There's just way to much history between the Klingons, Romulans, and UFP for them not to become involved.

    I'm guessing (and hoping) for no Klingons. I'd love a Michael Dorn appearance, but it might be wiser for the writers and producers just to avoid this issue all together.

    Not having the Klingons would be like not having the Federation.

    They're an integral part of the lore, and that part of the galaxy.

    In "All Good Things", the Klingons had invaded the Romulan Empire and Fed/Klingon tensions were high.

    Romulus is gone, I can imagine them picking up this alt-future thread for The Picard Show and having Klingons as antagonists.

    But I thought continuity didn't matter and only losers cared about it? At least that seems to be the general consensus on this forum, particularly from STD fans.

    If you don't like it because it's childish, then fair enough, but appealing to continuity doesn't make any sense at all here. If it doesn't matter for the story or characters or world building, it sure as hell doesn't matter for the abbreviation.

    think more of the bajorans, cardassians, andorians. and not aliens of the week when i advocated new aliens.

    have the writers dream up new species, their predicessors managed to do it
    no, it would be like not having a old, played out species keeped around for lack of imagination.

    They're a major player in Alpha and Beta Quadrant politics, it's impossible not to mention them.

    I'm not saying I want them to be a focus, I don't want them to be a focus.

    But I want them to be mentioned. They don't need to be seen.

    klingons should be unseen, and not heard.

    I have little to no desire to see or hear any more Klingons. Therefore, they will be there.

    maybe in addition to klingons,
    burnham can be there to woman-splain things to picard.

    if we're going to have things unwanted.

    Give me that over Klingons. Prefer Burnham to Picard any way.
