It has been announced that a new CBS All-Access TV series featuring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard is being produced. Obviously because of the way canon works, it's their prerogative to completely disregard all Litverse developments, and, equally obviously, a lot of us will be hoping they don't. Here's what I've pieced together 1. Kirsten Beyer is attached for writing and Kurtzman is involved (showrunner?) 2. Picard almost certainly isn't a Captain anymore and almost certainly isn't on Enterprise-E (Stewart said at Creation Con 2018) 3. Series is set "20 years after Nemesis" (2379 + 20 = 2399) which is 12 years After Hobus (2387). Current novels (2018/2019 announced novels) are set in 2385~2386 and are tiptoeing up to a magic hyperlight supernova that they either are or are not allowed to mention depending on whom is asked. So what do we feel is the realistic likelihood that we Lit fans (and authors too) are not going to be stepped on in this new 24th/25th century TV series? I don't need a lecture on how canon works, on how they have the right to supersede anything they want from the books. Obviously they can. But is there much of a chance that just maybe they won't?
