    Well, what do you think about Picard spin-off, but not usual spin-off.

    More like some new show to cover period between Nemesis (2379) and Picard (2399). It's a huge gap. It is a period of the Federation we need to explore. To see something new. To see how Federation changed.

    If they already decided to make show about Section 31 I think this period would be a great. Maybe 3 seasons to cover 2385 (Mars attack), 2386, and 2387 (Romulus destruction).

    You know there is a canon gap about Section 31. In Discovery era it is official organisation responsible to Starfleet Command. But in Enterprise era before that, and later in DS9 era it is a cover-up non-official organisation that is doing own thing. And it is not in regular Starfleet structure. Maybe this can be a period (2385-2387) where they can make a decision by Stafrleet command to make S31 official once again same as in period of Discovery. And they can make a great story about Tal Shiar (Zat Vash) and Starfleet Inteligence (Section 31) about ther plot, about ther cover-up, about organised synths rouge attack on Mars, about backround how everything went to hell.

    I don't want to watch Section 31 show in era between DIS and TOS, bcs they will show some technologies that are not for that period. It's a lot easier to place Section 31 show in this era 2379-2399 bcs of that. And we want to see more of this uniforms:

    I don't think there's enough for full and unique TV show, and it looks like that era is being covered already through flashbacks.

    I think a Short Trek, maybe, but not a series.

    That was indeed a struggle for me as well.

    Yes, this kind of ‘what if’ post should be in the FoT forum. And I already think the Section 31 show they’re doing now is a bad idea, so there’s no need to make even more of it.

    I mean, even if we could agree that the 20 year gap should be filled with some kind of show - and compared with the 70 or so years between TUC and TNG it is not exactly Terra Incognita - I guess it is highly unlikely anyone would be interested in Section 31

    Isn't Lower Decks supposed to be taking place between the two?

    Yes, Lower Decks starts one year after Nemisis. Probably in order to keep a "lighthearted" feel, and allow for lots of Berman Trek actors to return as guest voice actors for their unaged characters.

    Yep. The "second contact" crew. I'm hoping it's as fun as it could be.

    I am honestly not interested in a section 31 show. With Sloan's death I figured it has a fitting end. But its more than that. I despised what Discovery did to Section 31 and disagreed with just about every decision they took with regards to section 31. If they make that show I won't be watching it.

    The fanwank side of my fandom is like, "Heck yes! Let's do this!" You give me a couple of days, I can can up with all sorts of bad fan fiction ideas for shows set in this era.

    The practical side of my fandom feels like this era is better left to flashbacks, Short Treks, novels and comic books.
