    Yeah this, you see a close up of it pretty clearly, it's identical.

    I wonder how much of this series is influenced by Seven Samurai?

    I haven't seen it mentioned yet, but this planet appears to be Mars

    But that's also how you draw in veteran Trekkies.

    Great! Picard is here, but for some, TNG may not be their Star Trek; Voyager could be. And who knows, there may be some hidden references to DS9 that we have yet to see in an effort to appeal to fans of that show, as well. Point is, while it's great that Seven is there, I highly doubt she is other than nostalgic purposes. She seems to be there for a vital reason.

    I wonder if the Short Trek titled The Queen of Mars is the Picard prequel.

    Basically dealing with a Borg queen on Mars.

    Yes, Discovery and the Picard show are in the original Prime universe. The original continuity. Everything else is just braindead fanboy nonsense. Midnight's Edgelord and Doomcuck and the like are so divorced from reality that it's amazing there isn't some level of alimony involved.

    It's Children of Mars, not Queen.

    I just want Jean-Luc and his ragtag bunch to visit one place in order to make this the most perfect Star Trek ever.

    In the mythology, Romulus and Remus are the children of Mars. So it could still be the Picard one.

    I'd be more worried about the lead actor staying healthy enough to continue.

    I'd love that, but there's no reason they'd rebuild the promenade for a 5 minute scene.

    We're only seeing the station again if there is a straight up revival.

    The trailer for some reason didn't sit right with me. I don't know why but just feels off, a bit fanish. A girl who is like some secret weapon? Rag tag crew? One of them knows kung fu (note the stick). Seven of Nine was interesting though. It's more nostalgia laden than I expected.

    How does a stick relate to kung fu?

    Why would it only be a five minute scene?

    Brilliant! I've also just seen that the series will consist of ten episodes (I must have missed this news) so I'm over the moon; I'd always figured it would be more like a 3 episode miniseries.

    Do you think you see see Olympus Mons? Just looks like stock red planet to me. Olympus Mons is much more defined.
