    We can only hope they don't change it much inside either, and keep the props and costumes consistent as well...

    Sure. And I'll cringe as always. I don't like those characters that much. Sorry. I'd rather not visit it again.

    On a side note, if that character wasn't being hinted at, what else do you think it could be?

    I'm thinking that Q will give a chance to try to fix what he did wrong that caused so many to die (Paradise Lost = what happened that lead to synths being banned and Starfleet to chance so drastically) .

    You can see the name Dixon Hill. We know Picard loves the novels and character, I think it's clear what they are referencing.

    As to Paradise Lost, (the so called fall of man) to me invokes the once idealized federation losing it's way, almost losing the Synth planet in Et in Arcadia Ego, the flower on the cover might somewhat parallel Soji/Sutra etc. and their planet defense. And their once isolated/untainted world no longer living in "innocence". Also the somewhat broken " tossed out" crew of La Sirena.
    The narration and image then pans to a ship(Stargazer of the og "Picard Maneuver") and to *the hourglass sand flowing up backwards.
    Hinting an opportunity "second chance" to revisit their mistakes, and all the ramifications and paradoxes of changing the time line that implies.
    And of course the card game which invokes the final TNG temporal anomaly focused episode All Good Things (...must come to an end).

    He should be, he's a character from the 1940s.

    Again, just follow TNG Tapestry rules. They didn't de-age Picard in that episode. The other people in the past saw him as young, but the audience didn't.

    Another way they'll probably avoid the de aging by not visiting known characters in the past.

    Patrick said we'd see times we've never seen before in Trek. So they can easily avoid known characters that way.

    The Stargazer is one way to do that. Yes we saw some of the bridge crew (and Jack Crusher) in a couple TNG episodes, but those were one offs or background actors, no real reason to keep the same actors for those characters. Maybe we'll actually see Jack's death.

    And there is a lot of Picard's past we never saw on screen before. He was in Starfleet for 40 years before TNG started.

    I don't know why but I just know we will get a scene or scenes of Picard playing poker with Q. Maybe a framing device or the stakes of winning the game or high and people's lives depend on it. Jason

    Yea. And I don't have to like said character. *shrug*

    Ah, guess I didn't notice or pay attention to the second book.

    Good points. That could very well be the case too.

    What happened to the Federation timeship fleet? (Kirsten Beyer, are you taking notes?)


    It's also an homage to Janeway's immortal line from "Year of Hell" ("TIME'S ... UP!")

    I wonder if they'll kill off Guinan to give Picard a needed push?

    The woman manhandled Q.

    Good luck with that. :shifty:

    Guinan will kill Q, not the other way around. ;)

    Maybe we'll finally find out what went on between them.

    I still like my theory that the Q and Guinan use to be married. Also at some point many of Guinans people evolved to become Q and the rest stayed as long lived aliens. Their marriage ended when Q evolved and Guinan choose to stay as is. Jason

    Further DS9 Plotlines? Q? Guinan?......shut up and take my money!
    I'm not super excited about time travel story lines, I think Trek can be accused of overdoing it.
    Really looking forward to S2 after this trailer, I'm sure they will do it justice.

    Gods, I hope it's nothing like "Guinan and Q used to be an item". I know many have speculated something like this, but it's just so trite...

    And count me in on the "no Dixon Hill, please" side. But I'm hard pressed to explain the book away, unless it just means they're "investigating" something... But they don't need to show that book just to get that across.

    Together plus a dash of Loki you do get these main nemesis, as chaotic infatuated trickster deities.
    Parallels are rife:
    They did choose the Queen of Hearts :luvlove: .

    I wonder what Q will think of Picard being a robot now.
