    Didn't Shatner have a one-man show? Not sure if Stewart would want to follow in Shatner's footsteps once again. ;):wtf:

    As long as the psychiatrist isn't Troi. We know how that ended the last time.

    Stewart does (or has in the past, not sure offhand if he still does) a one-man play of A Christmas Carol, and put out a recorded version of it in the '90s. I saw him do it in New York many years back.

    Do you mean 20-37/8 year olds or people born between 1980-and 1998 who time traveled to the late 24th century? I cannot process your joke without knowing which angle you are going for.

    Q sends Picard back in time to 2018 with a ship, but no crew. Picard has to enlist a bunch of millennials and then set off into space. This is Humanities last test.

    Well, he is a man of many talents, so I can see it happening.

    Just look at the following clips featuring Sir Patrick in completely different roles:

    I have yet to see it, but the Short Treks minisode "Calypso", by The Picard Show writer Michael Chabon has this to say about the Federation's future...
    By 3257 there is no more Federation, and human colonies are fighting decades-long wars with each other.
    :eek:

    Could The Picard Show be...
    The fall of the Federation??

    I hope not :confused::confused:. I think the Federation might be facing another existential threat from a Borg-like race (not necessarily the Borg), but in the end, Picard will once again save the day.

    That's an interesting idea, however my opinion is it won't happen in the Picard show but in a possible future Star Trek show that is set a few hundred years after the 24th century.

    So they'll resurrect Brian Singer's plot for a Star Trek: Federation series??

    It would have to happen at some point. Civilizations rise and fall. A fall doesn't means it's completely gone but that it's greatly reduced to what it used to be. Any number of things and events (both natural and not-natural) could reduce the size of the Federation and do it insanely quickly as well. It's not a matter of if it happening but when because it always happens.

    I always thought a game of thrones style power struggle between the Picard, Janeway and Sisko could be interesting.

    Thanks to some kind of new space travel the majority of the Galaxy is now part the Federation, so we get Picard and the alpha/beta quadrant v Sisko and the gamma quadrant resources v Janeway and the delta quadrant resouces.

    It would need to be very untrek to work though, so maybe a mirror universe full of blood and death.

    You may want to suggest this as a treatment script to Quentin Tarrantino. I heard he's hiring writers for his upcoming 'reimagined' Trek movie ;):hugegrin:;):hugegrin:

    Won't work. The poor guy feels way too intimidated by me.

    Personally, I'm hoping the series is called "Jean-Luc".

    Make it Bajor instead of Vulcan and I'm in!

    Narrated and co-starred Dr Beverly Picard, the show focuses on the growing pains of their married and family life :hugegrin::hugegrin:

    I prefer they open a coffeeshop in Risa instead ;);)

    No. Explicitly not...

    CRUSHER: Jean-Luc, I scanned you for evidence of Irumodic Syndrome, as you suggested. There wasn't any. But I did find a small structural defect in the parietal lobe.
    PICARD: A defect that you hadn't noticed before?
    CRUSHER: It's the kind of defect that would only show up on a level four neurographic scan. It could cause you to be susceptible to several kinds of neurological disorders, including Irumodic Syndrome. Now, it's possible for you to live with this defect for the rest of your life without developing a problem. Or even if you do, many people continue to live normal lives for a long time after the onset of Irumodic Syndrome.
    [...]
    PICARD: But you said yourself that this is only a possibility.
    CRUSHER: But you've been to the future. You know it's going to happen.
    PICARD: I prefer to look on the future as something which is not written in stone. A lot of things can happen in twenty-five years.
    [...]
    DATA: Since the anomaly did not occur, there have already been changes in the way this timeline is unfolding. The future we experience will undoubtedly be different from the one the Captain encountered.

    And there was no "timeline that hadn't been tampered with" depicted. The whole scenario was a construct of the Q Continuum...

    PICARD: You had a hand in helping me get out of this.
    Q: I was the one that got you into it. A directive from the Continuum. The part about the helping hand, though, was my idea.
    PICARD: I sincerely hope that this is the last time that I find myself here.
    Q: You just don't get it, do you, Jean-Luc? The trial never ends. We wanted to see if you had the ability to expand your mind and your horizons. And for one brief moment, you did.
    PICARD: When I realized the paradox.
    Q: Exactly. For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. That is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebulae, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence.

    Picard could develop the syndrome due to the defect, or not. A possibility, nothing more. And for all we know, a remedy for either the syndrome or the defect itself (or both) could be developed by that time in "reality," in any case.

    Actually, that works for me. Forget this series, I'll make my own show with coffee and risa. In fact, forget the coffee, and the show...

    Another interview w/Picard show writer Michael Chabon, in which he states the following regarding Picard's characteristics in the new series:

    https://sea.ign.com/michael-chabon...o-writer-michael-chabon-on-trek-time-jumps-a

    What do you think he meant by this? Does this mean we'll get more action-packed Picard from the movies (see below) than the diplomatic & philosophical (perhaps more aloof) Picard from TNG ?

    I really want it to be the fall of Picard, as his iromodic syndrome destroys him. Messing with our perspective like Hannibal when Will was being drugged.

    And then of course something does come up and like "All Good Things" it's one last adventure....

    As fit as Patrick Stewart is for his age, we can't look past the fact that he is 78. It will be difficult for him to play a more action-packed Picard without the generous use of stunt doubles.

    I'm very hopeful about this series as some of my favourite TNG episodes were ones where Picard was more than just a Starfleet captain.

    Think Redemption where he wass the Arbiter of Succession for the Klingons and Chain of Command or any other episode where he goes on covert missions.
