    They are grimly inevitable regardless.

    I felt those were going to happen no matter what. The only thing that likely could have stopped them is if this was season 8 of TNG and even then that's iffy.

    Since the actor gets laid by his wife then there is no reason for the character not to get lucky, if they make Dr. Crusher his wife she is 19 years younger than him for a start. People only get squeamish about 'old age sex' until they reach old age.

    People get squeamish about sex period, old or not. It's stupid.

    Not when the character is a muscular hunk who can pass for being under 50

    I have no problem with action scenes in this series but have a younger captain handle that, that guy can do the leg work, while Picard handles bigger diplomatic picture.

    I think the destruction of Romulus is a perfect fit for this series - and my hunch is that this event will not only see the fall of the Romulan Star Empire, but will also also set-in-motion events that will eveuatually lead to the Federation’s future collapse.

    Collapse? The Federation will never collapse. It will slowly just expand until everyone is under Federation rule.

    That's not even slightly terrifying:lol:


    What if the Hobus supernova did a lot more damage than we saw (which was the original plan, before the AU premise was brought in everything up to and including Kronos and Earth would be destroyed)? Perhaps the show will be Picard in a crapsack universe, where half the Federation is smouldering ruin.

    Whatever they do, it’s going to F up STO a lot. :)
    I hope the ship designs are better here than on Discovery. I hope the Enterprise E isn’t changed too much.

    Fucking great concept for a season long arc! That being the inciting incident, then the main ship maybe going out on a diplomatic mission to the badguys, maybe even to find out the sitation is more complex (the badguys being divided themselves, seeing waging war on their original enemy as a uniting kit or something).

    But IMO not a good idea to start out a freshly new series, especially not the Picard one. I'd much rather like a premise like that for, say, the third or fourth season of DIS, where it would even bring some variety in our crew at least once not having to save the entire universe.

    It's inevitably going to happen as it's impossible to please every single Trekkie. Some are happy with everything, while some want light only, others want dark only, some want serialized only, and the rest want stand alone only.

    You can please some of the fans some of the time, some of the fans all of the time, but never all of the fans all of the time. #SoClever #Not

    Potential evidence for a possible collapse: Short Trek: Calypso - also written by Michael Chabon (who is also showrunning Picard).

    Specifically:

    the potential future state of the Federation, as eluded to by Craft

    I don't think Chabon is the show runner, there has been no mention of that. The show runner is probably Akiva Goldsman or James Duff (or both). Also the premise of the Picard series reportedly came from Kristen Beyer.

    Yeah, Chabon is not the showrunner.
