    I'm guessing the Romulan/Borg stuff is going to explain how Nero adapted Borg tech for his gigantic ship that was seen in Star Trek 2009.

    Stuffing B-4's parts in a drawer seems a little undignified. A step up from tossing them in clear totes warehoused on wire rack shelves, I suppose. But still...

    Yeah it’s def B4’s body, the torso shape is identical to how it looked in Nemesis, with the half arm on one side and full arm on the other.

    Safe deposit boxes at the local bank. The manager always calls me "Mr Thorwald" whenever I make a deposit...

    TVLine has become increasingly garbage-tier recently, but I have to say that interview was lovely. They all seem genuinely happy to be on this show. Please CBS, please PLEASE do not screw this up.....

    Stewart said a few months back that Picard will run "2 or 3 years", which says to me that Beyer & Chabon have the story all planned out. They just are or weren't yet sure how many episodes it would take to tell it. Knock on wood, we're getting 20-30 episodes of Picard goodness.

    DISCO & this Picard show are not in the Kelvin timeline, but they are made under the same alternative licence that the Kelvin series of movies were made under

    The so called 'Prime Universe' is not the original Star Trek continuity - it's an universe where things mostly match the events of the original continuity

    Whilst this timeline might have the same rough chain of events there have to be differences - a minimum 15% difference I believe - so Seven's implants being different - the Borg cube having blue rather than green light, the DISCO Enterprise being larger than TOS all these things are different for contractual reasons

    Discovery & Picard are made for CBS, yes, but they are made by Secret Hideout under the same alternative licence as Bad Robot made the Kelvin movies

    However I think the Picard series will walk the line as close as it possibly can - and by the time it airs the CBS/Viacom re-merger might have gone through and it might not be an issue anymore. Picard at that point could then be potentially subsumed into the original continuity. Perhaps the same will be true of Discovery from Series 3 onwards post time jump

    That is...a pretty intriguing thought.
    People have speculated about whether Picard had children. The theme here could be that all those kids who grew up on the Enterprise-D are Picard's surrogate children...or grandchildren, whatever.

    But would that make this...Star Trek: The Millennial Generation? :ack:

    Michelle Hurd is 52. Presuming her character is supposed to be the same age, there's no way she would have been a kid onboard the Enterprise. She would have already been a young adult.

    Maybe she was a friend of Sito Jaxa from Lower Decks?

    Something entirely different, that's so good and out of left field I didn't even notice the first time:

    I LOVE all the variety in Romulan/Vulcan hairstyles! None of the repetitive bowlcuts, yet all distinctly alien. That's how to do different personalities in alien species!

    Discovery and Picard (and Lower Decks) are all part of the prime universe. This isn’t a question.

    I will cry tears of joy if Quark shows up in the show too.

    Yeah, the alternative license = alternative timeline stuff is just Midnight's Edge nonsense.

    They are not a reliable source. They make dramatic clickbait that occasionally has some connection with reality, but often does not. All these series are meant to be a part of the Prime Universe.

    If someone doesn't like that, they are free as always to decanonize a series in their own head. People did this with Enterprise, and Voyager. Heck, there are even curmudgeons out there who believe TOS is the only real Star Trek.

    However, that doesn't change the creative intent, nor does it convince the rest of the world.

    As opposed to what? Surrounding Picard with bad looking older people in an attempt to make Star Trek lame?

    Makes sense...

    I actually don't think there will be any additional Nemesis ties...unless the assassination of the senate also plays some small role with the involvement of the Romulans.
