    I know, I’m reading too much into Picard’s expression, but I wonder if there’s a bit of a Prisoner vibe here. “Why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?” could be an interview question, but it could also be a “Why did you resign, Number Six?” kind of scenario.

    The look on Picard face is the same look that he had when he gotten news of his brother Robert and Nephew Rene had died in a fire. Do y'all remember how he acted? He didn't wanted to do anything. It was Troi whom got him back on his feet.

    I'll admit that the Internet is highly confusing. I find the positive reaction and reckless speculation highly amusing.

    Admiral Picard? I find that very unlikely. Kirk was pretty strict with him. :)

    Not the way I would've put it, but I agree with you.

    Can't say I see why it would be hypocritical to be interested in one show and not the other.

    What I can see is that calling everyone in the thread hypocrites is Trolling. Dial it back.

    Everyone speculating about the Hobus tie-ins and Nemesis tie-ins and Irrumodic Syndrome are going to predictably be overwhelmed with disappointment and lose their minds when it ends up being something different and original.

    Setting yourself up for nerdrage.

    All this has happened before, and it will happen again

    Perhaps people prefer being hopeful vs being cynical and miserable. Perhaps people want to enjoy the anticipation and pure joy at the prospect of something they love returning after so many years. Perhaps people genuinely were moved. Perhaps there are people who have enjoyed modern Trek and are looking forward to more

    I know, crazy... but try to imagine it.

    That future timeline was wiped clean in the end of that 2-part story. Never happened.

    We don’t know that. The AGT future could not unfold exactly as depicted once Picard revealed the future to his crew (not to mention it was likely a Q created version that disappeared entirely).

    I think the hypocrisy might lie in the contradictory attitudes towards All-Access rather than in liking one show over the other. Just a thought (not trying to persist in name calling).

    Have not read the whole thread, but Romulus/death if Beverly would be obvious reasons for him leaving. Everyone would get that, I think.

    But the narrator is still asking why.

    If the story is about a romulan migrant crisis, I will not be pleased. There must still exist enough uninhabited M-Class worlds to relocate those Romulans. Either this or the Hobus Nova ripped such a massive hole in the beta quadrant, destroying habitable worlds on an unprecedented scale.
    Or maybe, they just came to late in their rescue mission.
    Anyway, the probability of Kurtzman using his 09 Story as starting point and some modern political issue in combination with it is quite high.
    And I'll try to be open about it. As long as it doesnt feel anachronistic.

    I really hope it's not a migrant crisis episode or they try to do any political commentary with refugees, strict borders or any of that.

    Which isn't to say I mind political commentary and allegory in Trek. Heck, it was baked into the show from the beginning.

    But I think that would be a little too on the nose.

    Not to mention unrealistic. There has never been a convenient shortage for available Class-M planets whenever they were needed, from episodes like "Homeward" to "Sanctuary", etc.

    Not to mention, Romulus isn't one planet...it's a friggin' Empire. They should have tons of their own worlds available to absorb the survivors.

    Having a bunch of Romulans as homeless refugees just doesn't hold water.

    I very much hope they deal with the Romulan crisis in a way that makes sense and is logical and thoughtful. The loss of Romulus would be a huge, catastrophic event, (and could drive stories) but it wouldn't completely destroy the Empire.

    Of course it was watering the vines. Yes, there is weather modification in the Star Trek future, but no, there's no reason to think it's fine tuned enough for every single strip of crop-bearing land so that you'd never need to actually do any watering yourself.

    That's absurd.

    I know its nitpicking on my side, but their are far easier and more convenient irrigation systems, with simple rubber tubes, to water your vineyards. Hovercraft look more futuristic and cooler though.

    edit: And european vineyards often dont use any irrigation at all.

    We don't know enough about the automatic weather grid in the future to say it makes watering obsolete. It may not function perfectly, or it's effects may be limited to massive areas this necessitating watering if their zone is scheduled for constant summer sunshine to appease the housing estate 3 miles away.

    As for the hype, I noticed a big shift when the Discovery season 2 trailers were released. Yes there was nerdrage, but it was drowned out in enthusiasm. I feel the larger part of the fan base has come to accept and enjoy current-day Trek. Ceetainly after Disco S2, I'm more enthusiastic about Picard than if it had come after S1 (which was harmed by endless BTS turmoil)
