    I'm pretty sure DS9 will not appear. That being said, the promenade could be largely green-screened in with minimal physical sets/props.

    How is a show that ended nearly a decade ago considered "modern"? Also, understand that the style of shooting something isn't exactly an industry standard; it's an artistic choice. Just because other shows do it, doesn't mean all of them have to. And that fact alone shouldn't force other shows to be labeled more modern-looking than others.

    Isn't Vulcan a red planet? That would make more sense -- also given that we see a shot of Picard at the Vasquez Rocks, which are a frequent Vulcan backdrop.

    Excellent observations. Definitely Vulcan!

    You can see Valles Marineris in the south west.

    And Kasei Valles north of that

    Olympus Mons is beyond the horizon, far west of both features, so it's not visable.

    I felt that way with Top Gun Maverick. I didn't feel a thing while watching that. I felt emotional with the Picard trailer. Pretty much the reverse of how you felt. That's me as well for the most part too though.

    Since the majority of Tal Shiar was defeated in DS9 and the Romulan Senate assasinated in Nemesis; could it be that the authoritarian military dictatorship over the Romulan people finally broke free?

    Could a real Romulan Republic have taken hold and wanted to make peace with the UFP / even join the UFP.

    Any of the old line Romulan Star Empire authoritarian Hawks would've been separated / banished from the new Romulan Republic?

    In North Korea, there is a finite number of acceptable Hair Cuts because of the Kim regime.

    A similar thing could've been imposed by the authoritarian regime under the Romulan Star Empire.

    That means a Gorn is about to jump out and attack then?

    Wouldn’t the first people on the evacuation ships be those who were in power?

    Doesn't explain Vulcans, though. :vulcan:

    Whilst I'd love a link to DS9 in the series (and considering we've only seen a brief trailer of a ten episode series there still may be one), I'm more than happy with the nods to the past that have been announced thus far. Considering they emphasised when the series was announced that it wasn't a sequel to TNG, I imagined there would be limited references to the past so as to not alienate new viewers. I was therefore very pleasantly surprised to find out that not only will Data, Troi and Riker be appearing but also Seven and Hugh!

    Given that the series is hopefully going to run for at least another season, as per Stewart's comment, I wouldn't be surprised if some more characters and locations from the past turn up further down the line.

    You're completely right, but it just feels a bit off in that trailer because we're not at a point yet of seeing that development in context. At least that's how I feel. YMMV. :)

    Vulcan Science Directorate has determined it to be the most logical haircut possible.

    Data’s eyes look more consistent with the later films, which were different from the series.

    If Star Trek had been off air for 17 years, maybe, but I rewatched Voyager 4 months ago and am currently going through TNG. I've seen enough.

    He shall always be "K'Bar" to me.

    How insensitive. He might be visually impaired.

    Could be because of religious teachings of Surak that were rediscovered or cultural teachings.
