    Before a number came up, I thought it's Terra Nova, the first colony (some 325 years).
    But if it's 250, it could be the launch of the NX-01.

    They never said North America was attacked in TOS.

    Ares IV, not One. The episode said it was one of the early mars missions, not the first.

    She was a human being going up against a GOD.

    Q homed in on her weakness.

    Agnes had not yet become the Borg Queen.

    Starfleet did not trust her (Seven kept yelling at Picard to KILL her!)


    No one ever said Trek was a documentary.

    But they did say that the Eugenics Wars and World War 3 have now happened in the 21st century in "Strange New Worlds" (S1.1).

    And thanks for the correction on Ares; it's only been about 24 years since I've seen it. ;)

    It's SNW. It's also the same show that says we're going to have Civil War II. I don't like the idea of CWII happening in Star Trek (or happening at all, for that matter) because the only battlefield the Culture Wars will take place in are online. Armchair Generals everywhere. Star Trek doesn't need to give the Flame Warriors legitimacy by saying they'd actually fight in large numbers in a real war.

    I would certainly hope not, but events like January 6th could've easily gone another way if the mob were better organized or better armed.
    We're only one administration away from a reactionary leader who'll spark/incite another Civil War.

    I don't like the idea either (at all), but I can't deny the possibility of it ever occurring again.
    Yes, some of these would-be minutemen are laughable, but they could also make effective terrorists.
    CW2 (if it happens) may not have armies of opposing troops assembled on battlefields like at Gettysburg, but it could be rife with random terrorist incidents, or mobs overrunning government institutions.

    Something like Northern Ireland during The Troubles. :(

    Star Trek: Picard -- Season 3

    The last outing of the Next Generation crew (at least, until the next one :rolleyes: ).

    Picard is the type of show where they could easily un-cancel it. Every season is like its own mini-series. That makes it completely unlike the other Star Trek series.

    Sir Patrick (Picard) isn't getting any younger.

    And if there’s going to be anymore PIC, just do movies. Since the length of 10 PIC episodes are 2-3 Trek movies.

    Patrick said he's up to do more stuff after doing Season 3.
    He must have really enjoyed coming back.

    He can be a recurring mentor for Seven of Nine in the spin-off. :techman:

    If Sir Pat doesn't want to do a full season Admiral Picard would work well in a recurring role, like the poster above said a mentor

    Seven isn't the fawning type.

    If you want to bring back Picard, there had better be a VERY good reason to do it.

    I could get behind that. I'd prefer Streaming Movies to Cinematic Movies anyway. I've pretty much written off the last 15 years of mainstream cinema films as a lost cause. TV's where it's at now until the cinematic landscape changes.

    I'm surprised that Paramount are still trying to push JJ's team to deliver Kelvin IV rather than have Kurtzman and co to make some movies

    The door is open to a proper PIC movie trilogy in the vein of TWOK-TSFS-TVH. The Ent-E trilogy of FC-INS-NEM isn’t revered at all.

    I thought they gave up.

    Should they pass it off to Rian Johnson? Considering some think TLJ is the best of the sequel trilogy that JJ was in charge of?
