Likely as not, somewhere in between.
They had to appease him somewhat to get him involved. It just so happens that what I don't want happens to be in alignment with what Patrick Stewart doesn't want: another TNG.
I'd like to see archaeologist Picard solving not just mysteries of the past but also of the present putting on Dixon Hill's hat etc. Basically borrowing from all the different roles Picard has played, except Captain / Commander of starships.
There's a difference between 'not another TNG' and 'let's let Patrick do whatever he wants, even if it's nothing more than some silly idea where he goes off gallivanting with a bunch of young degenerates to recapture his youth, even though Picard would never have done anything like that in a million years.'
You're right that there is a difference, but we'll see how it pans out. When Picard and Richard Galen went on archaeological digs, I wonder who they traveled with or who the contractors were they must have relied upon? And then there was that time with Vash.
I like that for once we're getting a Star Trek series not focused on Starfleet. We only got half-way there with DS9.
Whos to say what Picard would be like after having a few years to ruminate on what he experienced in "Tapestry". That episode made it clear he wasn't always a stick up the ass moralist. Who's to say after kissing Starfleet goodbye he decides to take some time to enjoy himself?
Is this show set 20 years after All Good Things or Nemesis? Some are reporting 20 years after the show, some say after the movie (though the latter would make far more sense)
I think it's been established that the show takes place in 2389, which would roughly be 20 years after the series (and two years post-Hobus incident).
the initial announcement at Vegas it was 20 years after Nemesis.
20 years after Nemesis would be 2399, 12 years after Hobus. While the 20 years after Nemesis date was officially announced, it could have changed in the meantime so that the destruction of Romulus would have more of an immediate affect on Picard.
There are conflicting reports as to whether it's 20 years after TNG or 20 years after Nemesis.
Either's fine by me
Who is conducting it?
Autocorrect is my Nemesis
Eventually Autocorrect will be come so advanced that it will see sentient life as an obstruction to its understanding and start planning to destroy all that is getting in its way.
By the 23rd century, they call autocorrect "Control"
If it's smart, it shows you exactly what you typed but sends something else to the recipient.
Which is precisely what Control was said to have done in my novel — up to and including real-time manipulation of video and audio transmissions.
more Kurtz comments
So perhaps the first ep is Picard standing in front of a replicator for the first 42 minutes and just before the ep ends we get a question from the machine:
That would succeed in leaving me in tears.
I think Beverly is dead. Something has to break Picard and I don't see the destruction of Romulus being enough. Either that or he's experiencing Irumodic Syndrome.
