Let the master work, and then judge him afterwards.
I was worried about his voice when I saw his Colbert Super Bowl skit, but he seems fine on Graham Norton:
Cross-topic question: Is Patrick Stewart so fragile that the lens flares will kill him?
I disagree, I think Picard will not fight any physical battles, but the younger Star Fleet officers working for him will.
Exactly, in this series, Picard will be a planner, a strategist, a diplomat, rather than the explorer from the TNG show or the action hero he was in the movies. He still will gives speeches, but for the most part, he will devise plans that others execute.
I don't think the other characters will be Starfleet officers.
Why wouldn't Picard have some Star Fleet officers under his command? Anyway, that's beside my point, there are younger people working for Picard who can do action scenes, whether they are in Star Fleet or not is irrelevant to that point. There can be action in the show, its just that Picard will not be doing it and that's fine.
I think it's been established that he's working with a crew of mercenaries. He's out of Starfleet, from what I gather.
Have you read the articles about the show?
The characters in the last link have been mostly corroborated by casting announcements.
I worry some Trekkies are going to watch this show expecting it to be something it's not. That's why I mentioned it.
So, just like TNG. I don't see the problem here.
The only difference being that in TNG they just happened to start with "Captain's log, stardate blah blah blah..."
This will happen regardless. Assumptions and expectations will reign supreme resulting in disappointment and frustration.
His voice is definitely raspier, similar to what's happened to Paul McCartney. I don't know if he has nodules or what.
Fair enough, I have not read everything about this series, I want to be a bit surprised going in.
My point stands, all these young people working for Picard can handle any action scene that the story may need, we could still have action, its just not Picard who will handle it.
I guess he got used to being a space pirate in Gambit--as McCoy got used to a small hip in one of the comics.
I might have made Picard more of something out of Mailer
You don't see him huch--but he is making moves behind the scenes. Speaks seldom
Which is why I will make the choice to abandon such obstacles to enjoyment before engaging 'play'. That's certainly how I got the maximum kick out of Spiner's Fresh Hell.
Please, say it ain't so. I don't want to watch Star Trek: The Geriatric Generation.
The first time that I ever saw Stewart was his appearance in Dune. Even then, he looked like an old man.
Don't get me wrong. I wish Stewart good health and long life. But I don't want to remember Stewart as frail, if that is the case now. I want to remember him as the vigorous man that he was in TNG.
I am anxious to see the Picard series, but if Stewart is going to be super fragile as the OP suggests, it's not going to be a pleasure to watch, thinking that the man on screen is not doing well. I hope that is not going to be the case.
The recent LA Times interview emphasises it being the later years of Picard's life and how far he's fallen. If anything, he'll likely be playing up frailty.
So Picard was charged for the semi military coup to get rid of the President in the novelverse?
BTW if TV Picard was never married with children will the new novels have to reflect all that?
He's been a broken man since the Federation repossessed his dune buggy.
