    "Star Trek: The Wisdom of Picard". Coming in hardcover, edited by Chip Carter, November 2020:

    "Discover all of Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s sage advice, insight, and wisdom from the deck of the U.S.S. Enterprise and beyond in this ultimate collection of wise words from the esteemed Starfleet captain.

    "Any Star Trek fan knows that Captain Jean-Luc Picard is renowned for his impressive oratory skills, preferring negotiation and diplomacy over violence and destruction. Now, you can finally ponder all of his wisdom in one place—from his thoughts on leadership and sense of duty to justice and the limitlessness of exploration—in Star Trek: The Wisdom of Picard.

    "Journey with the Starfleet captain through his seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation to the Star Trek movies to the current series Star Trek: Picard. Star Trek: The Wisdom of Picard boldly goes where no book has gone before to log Picard’s timeless advice in one impressive collection, perfect for Star Trek fans everywhere! Make it so!"

    Is this just a collection of quotes or will it have new material?

    Chip is listed as editor, so I assume they will be canonical quotes.

    If you look at the screenshots on Amazon, it has a nice introduction and then has canonical quotes organized by topic.

    Just downloaded to the Kindle app.

    It is a really nice "coffee table book". As you can see from the screenshots above, it has beautiful pictures from the TV show with a lot of great canonical Picard quotes, organized by topic. It's a pretty cool book.

    I'm guessing this is a nice stocking filler for the Trekkie in your life.
