    So...another reason for the expansion of Pinewood Toronto?

    Picard in his own series? Not TNG?! Well, then ... in that case ... I couldn't be happier for Sir Patrick Stewart. This endeavour has my fullest support.

    I just hope they bring back Jerry Goldsmith's theme from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" (which was used in TNG and three of the 4 TNG films :) )

    I'm guessing he'll be a teacher in a Starfleet Academy series. I seriously doubt they will have him commanding a Starship.

    Oh. My. Gods. That's brilliant.

    Here's to hoping it's more like TNG with an older Picard rather than the dark, brutal, and nasty of DSC.

    Not only is Kirsten motherfucking Beyer a member of the creative team, the whole show was her idea!

    That would be kind of strange, from a fan point of view. It would take some getting used to. But it's entirely appropriate for the character. I'm just kind of surprised that enticed Sir Patrick Stewart into coming back, if that's what, in fact, brought about his return.

    Commenter Ben Grimm over at BirthMoviesDeath has an interesting theory about what this show could be:

    "My guess: Ambassador Picard dealing with the fallout of the explosion of Romulus. Single story, non-episodic, leads to the Romulans joining the Federation (or at least becoming allies) and a hopeful, peaceful future."

    I'm looking forward to seeing what the state of the galaxy is as this take place twelve years after the events seen in ST 09 which featured the destruction of Romulus.

    The Borg will join the Federation, and Jean Luc will become the Ambassador.....live long and resistance is logic

    Well. I never really thought it would happen but now that it's happening....wow.

    I don't like Discovery. Sure, I only gave it 6 episodes and perhaps that's unfair, but I just don't like it much. This has me excited though. I can't wait to see what they do!
