    IIRC, he once told Guinan the exact contents of her drink, but couldn't say if it's good or bad

    Thanks for the article link I wondered what happened with the sale of Paramount studios.

    So far, nothing has happened yet.

    A Sony/Apollo tie-up has a ton of regulatory issues attached to it (as a Japanese company, Sony is legally prohibited from owning an American broadcast network).

    Sony/Apollo swallowing up Paramount would bring up antitrust issues (one less studio in Hollywood).

    Aside from the fact that Shari Redstone doesn't want to break up Paramount Global.

    A deal could take months, even years, to go through (assuming it happens at all).

    Paramount's Special Committee has now formally recommended the merger with Skydance:

    I'm not even sure why the future of Paramount is being discussed specifically in the Picard forum. Picard isn't even an ongoing series.

    I'm curious to see what "surprises" Alex Kurtzman has in store for the franchise.

    Hopefully, one of them will be #StarTrekLegacy (the show that a good portion of the fandom has been crawling over broken glass for -- the writers'/actors' strikes, the Paramount merger).

    Again, none of that has anything to do with Picard at this point. The series is done.

    Legacy is intended as a spinoff of Picard.

    What has Seven of Nine done to merit having a cocktail named after her on Disco?

    Some of us would like to know!

    There are those of us who want to see Seven command the E-G. How does she interact with a crew that's half her age? How does her shady past affect her decision-making today?

    Seven's shady past makes her unlike any Captain the Enterprise has ever had. We want to see it.

    Still, I think the ask is to discuss this in Future of Trek.

    We have one thread open about the chances of a Picard spinoff and another thread asking for a Captain Shaw series ... For the sake of consistency, why not move them too?

    Why single out Legacy? I can discuss the chances of a hypothetical Picard spinoff occurring but not Legacy? A Picard spinoff? It makes no sense.

    Legacy is about Picard -- a continuation of Picard S3 and a follow-up of "The Last Generation". It has everything to do with Picard.

    I resent being silenced.

    I don't think she would have a huge issue interacting with the crew. Her shady past is the more interesting part. She was basically a Space Vigilante for 25 years, a Borg for most of the 25 before that. Seven has grown quite a bit, but I think she spent a long time being her own worst enemy.

    I can't help but think her whole "woe is me, Starfleet wouldn't accept a Borg" was probably... less true, and was more likely Seven being an absolutely incredulous pain the ass. I can see Post-Voyager Seven trying to get into Starfleet and Starfleet Command basically going "We can forgo the Academy due to experience, welcome aboard Ensign Hansen" and she throws a fit because she's not a Captain and feels that being an Ensign is beneath her and a waste of her talents.

    If going with that theory, it's an interesting bit of irony that she kind of won in the end... and when she DID join Starfleet, she got in through a field commission by Picard as a Commander...

    At this point, yes, since all of these are hypothetical future of Trek topics. Paramount merging with another corporate entity has no bearing on a show that finished production last year.

    The others are basically representing my own feelings on the topic. I'm fine with the future of Paramount being discussed in Future of Trek. I'm fine with Legacy being discussed here even though its status as something that would ever happen is highly dubious (and if it ever did get greenlit, it would arguably belong more in FoT as a separate project). Having the future of Paramount backdoored in because of its bearing on Legacy seems a step too far removed from Picard.

    I misunderstood the ask and I apologize for that. Regardless, no one is silencing you. Just asking for the conversation be moved to the appropriate place.
