Discussion in 'Star Trek: Picard' started by Precious Tritium, Jul 23, 2022.
This is where @Timofnine got the shot from. I think. It's not much, but...
I won’t post the other shots I got… erm, no need to now… I think? haha
Aw, come on!
But since I mentioned Matalas being involved with a follow up to PIC, this is where I got that from @Dukhat :
And when asked if Matalas had plans to stick around and produce any more content for the Star Trek universe — after Picard signs off for good — the showrunner offered this cryptic response:
“Uhh…. uhh…. [pause] …if this was a printed interview, you’d say, ‘The showrunner smiled devilishly.’
I think, to me, this is a period of time in the ‘Star Trek’ universe I’d love to spend more time in. There’s nothing less than 30 legacy characters across ‘Deep Space Nine,’ ‘Voyager’ and ‘Next Gen’ that you’d love to check in and see — you can’t get to them all in [‘Picard’] Season 3.
We don’t get to Miles O’Brien. I’d love to get to Miles O’Brien! There are people though — I could say one name to you right now that comes back, and [you’d be] like, ‘Oh my god, I want to know what happens!’
You’re going to find out. So I would love nothing more than to stay in the 2401 year to tell more ‘Star Trek’ stories in this universe… so that’s all I will say.”
Well, I have a good ‘panoramic shot’ in my collection.
This one has the Enterprise blurred out to keep it a secret though.
I think all of those shots are from season 3. And Matalas’s comments don’t equivocally prove that he’s producing a new show after PIC ends that takes place in the same time period.
Well they have to be from season 3 as they have not started filming the new series yet…. Or have they?!
I bet the production staff don’t want a Seven of Nine spin off show… that might be why they killed off Hugh and Icheb. The’ll probably kill Seven of Nine off next in last minute reshoots and cast Geneviève Bujold as the Captain of the Enterprise in the new series instead.
Knowing that Seven becomes Captain of the Enterprise would be a spoiler anyway, because it means whoever is the Captain in season three of Picard is likely to be ‘written out’.
I think the closest we have to confirmation on a Seven-lead PIC spinoff is Kurtzman's remark about more female helmed shows coming. But SH also has a hole in the Trek lineup coming with PIC's wrap that will need to be filled relatively quickly, Seven is a popular character, the fans want more Trek in the "present" timeline, Ryan, Hurd, and Evagora are all available to reprise their roles, and the studio will have all the assets from the PIC show available for use. Seems like odds are good.
No, they haven’t, because there is no definitive proof that a new series is in development once PIC ends. Heck, TPTB are still waffling about the Section 31 and Starfleet Academy series.
They definitely captured the "TNG Movie plus a few decades" look they were going for.
True, no proof whatsoever. It's still pretty much a guessing game in parts based on vague statements. But the way the Star Trek revival has been going lately, these guesses are very rational and anything but wildly speculative.
A PIC follow up seems closer to reality than the S31 and Starfleet Academy series ATM. Although sooner or later those will happen too probably.
And I for one would also rather have a PIC follow-up series rather than those other two options, one of which I’ve never liked the idea of from the start. But they already have a show about the adventures of a crew on a ship named the Enterprise, albeit from a different time period (although the technology really isn’t all that much different.) Why would they need to make essentially the same show?
It would not be the same show, the show is about the characters not the ship. The characters would be *totally* different and so would the universe that the two shows existed in. Also, I think a Seven of Nine spin off series would be a different tone to Strange New World’s… it would be a bit more ‘serious’ and Berman era like but with a modern spin… hopefully.
By deliberately making it a different show. It taking place on or around a starship Enterprise doesn't prevent it from being a political thriller, a drama, cosmic horror, psychological thriller, slice of life... alright some of these are a bit tongue in cheek. But besides the genre, there's many more ways to tell stories than we are used from (at least classic) Star Trek. I'll let others elucidate further, since I'm not too familiar with writing unfortunately, and English isn't my first language.
I'd like to add though: We are at a point, what with the healthy growth of the franchise, where we should embrace the idea that a Star Trek series can be much, much more than what most series up to now were constrained to, IMO.
Despite having different characters, it would still fundamentally be the same show: the adventures of a starship crew. Just like TNG was fundamentally no different from TOS, VOY was fundamentally no different from TNG, and ENT was fundamentally no different from VOY.
If they want to make a new show, I would like the premise of it to be different from the usual ‘crew on a ship.’ However, I’m not sure how they could successfully do that and have it still be a Star Trek series.
She has an aunt named Irene in the novelverse (she's one of the few people that Seven permits to call her "Annika").
SNW has Enterprise. The Kelvin films have Enterprise.
I can't see her getting Enterprise. It risks oversaturation.
Pretty sure in a late VOY episode she gets a message from her aunt/gran
I would *surely* remember that if it was the case!
Try looking at it this way:
"Mutiny on the Bounty"
"The Terror" (series, 2018)
"Pirates of the Caribbean"
"Dead Calm" (1989)
"The Final Countdown"
...are all 'crew on a ship' stories.
Edited to add:
"Lost in Space"
"Space: Above and Beyond"
I've learned from PAINFUL experience that it's best to avoid speculating (if you're wrong, you end up with egg on your face ).
