    Fans aren't owed anything.

    Also why?

    I'd go for an episode titled New Paradigm.

    Let's see Who gets the reference.

    Ah, yes, the good old days. I remember that thread. Stewey lost his shit. Lots of warnings were handed out in the demand for an episode called "Paradigm". All of you who got warned, you were all collateral damage. It was great.

    Maybe Lower Decks will have an episode in season four called "Brother, Can You Spare A Paradigm?"

    I'll show myself out. Humble apologies. :razz:

    I thought that mystery episode was called “Interregnum.” Or maybe that was a different one. Was supposed to air during Season 3.

    "Interregnum" I do remember. Wasn't that just some weird running joke though?

    I actually used that as a title for a paper that I wrote in college - although, after 35 years, the title is the only thing that I remember about the paper.

    Bold words. Nothing will make them shut up, they'll invent new things to be upset about.

    I'm sure Picard Season 3 will be that good... BUT...

    If it really turns out to be the case: The stragglers won't actually care about how good it is. William Shakespear could come back from the dead, Gene Roddenberry could come back from the dead, The Great Bard & The Great Bird could write something spectacular and it could be directed by an also-resurrected Stanley Kubrick, and with that kind of All-Star Talent, they'd still find a way to complain for exactly four reasons:

    1. It was made in the 2020s, not the 1990s.
    2. It doesn't line up 100.0% with what they want.
    3. Canon. Always canon. The more minute, the more important.
    4. They'll follow the herd. If the Fandom Menace (Doomcock, Midnight's Edge, MechaRandom42, etc. ) says it's bad, and everyone else in those circles says it's bad, they'll follow the herd, and echo the echo chamber. "It sucks!" "Have you seen it?" "No! And I don't need to!"

    If it's good, it doesn't matter. If it's legitimately bad (as in for real reasons, and not what I listed above), it doesn't matter.

    I don't think 100% will be won over. If I like it, I'll be happy if 67% are won over. Fandom is like politics. It's not about the unanimous, it's about the majority (half) and the super-majority (two-thirds). Once you have the super-majority, you're golden.

    How about The Interregnum Paradigm? It sounds like a TOS title.

    The Fandom Menace and gatekeepers will just attack Picard harder if season 3 is good.

    Yes, The Interregnum was a fake episode that had its own discussion thread in the Enterprise forum and I think was eventually "novelized" in the Fan Fic forum.
    I was actually referencing Daleks of the New Paradigm from Doctor Who.

    FWIW, I am very anti-Discovery/SNW (and anti-Abramsverse films), but haven't been this excited to see a season of TV (Picard season 3) since the final season of The Americans, my favorite prestige drama, in 2018. Hopefully there's some room for nuance.

    They've been declaring Disco cancelled for the past four seasons. :rolleyes:

    OT: A fan once picked a fight with John Byrne when Byrne was doing Wonder Woman (Byrne's stories didn't match the fan's head canon! :eek: )

    There's just no pleasing some people. :( :rolleyes:
