Elnor could easily have had a nice role this season
I wonder if Stewart's opinion of his acting as an old man in All Good Things has changed now he is actually an old man?
Of course, so could Laris and even the nice Borg Queen. But it's nostalgia time.
Maybe we'll see The Travelers again?
as much fun as a I loved seeing Michelle Forbes as Ro Laren again, It felt kinda wasted that they brought her back after 30 years just for us to see her get whacked.
Meh, I guess Crusher's got a new son...
It was excellent. She made peace and helped Picard. Not sure what was wasted. That episode crunched history into manageable amount for the audience while giving each characters a moment of reconciliation.
'tis better to have reappeared and died than never to have reappeared at all
At least we got to actually see Ro again in new material. Plus they could write a novel with her that fills in the gap between TNG and Picard season 3.
We've already had Ro novels that covered the same ground but with differences to what we got in Picard. Not sure what writer would want to retread that. For what it's worth, even that other star franchise doesn't re-cover the same events from the Legends continuity (for example Anakin and Obi-Wan's mission to Ansion, mentioned in Attack of the Clones, won't be rewritten despite its novel now declared non-canon by Disney)
At best maybe an IDW comic which seems less hesitant to retread old ground (they've done like 2 versions of the ending of Kirk's 5 year mission)
I wonder if we'll get info on anything come First Contact Day. I was doing the math - we'll still have a few episodes of Picard left when that happens. I can't remember though, did they do much of anything with First Contact Day last year and/or the year before? Star Trek Day, I remember. FC, not so much.
It's a recurring theme with this series, alas. At least she got a better send-off than Q, Hugh, or Icheb.
First Contact Day is April 5. Frontier Day is April 16 presumably (when Broken Bow took place in-universe). A trailer supposedly said there's only 48 hours left until Frontier Day. At best we could say Season 3 starts on April 6 and the season lasts around 10 days, assuming it ends on Frontier Day.
Oh man, I really could have been clearer.
I meant information on the future of the franchise when First Contact Day arrives IRL, haha.
It is a great shame that just as they begin to know/remember how to make a proper continuation of 24th century Trek again, the series is going to end in 5 episodes.
There were some trailers and announcements during First Contact Day 2021 (Picard teaser, Discovery teaser, prodigy announcement and animation pictures, lower decks trailer and season 2 release date).
Last year's first contact day had the first Picard season 3 teaser that revealed the entire cast was returning and also had the SNW trailer.
So there's a good chance we'll get SNW and Lower Decks trailers this year, but beyond that who knows. There may not be any new shows if Paramount is looking to cut back costs.
Does anyone else think Ro Laren in Picard looked like Admiral Cornwell from Discovery?
I liked Ro.
They brought her back to let her and Picard have closure and that closure/forgiveness happened because there was no other time to do it. They killed her off because there is a lot left to do in this season. Nothing felt wasted to me. Perhaps forced, but we have only 5 episodes left and we need to see Geordi, Lore, Moriarty, Troi in person, any other guests, reveal the mystery behind Jack and the changelings, and get a final 10 or so minutes to wrap up the whole TNG story for good.
Indeed. Imagine her just hanging around on the bridge and looking bored. It's why Obi-Wan was killed off. It's ok for characters to die; it's not a waste.
