    The closest Trek has come to anything like that was "The Counter-click incident", which ended with the retirement age of 75 being abolished.

    Fair enough.

    That covers all of Picard's canonical adventures anyway.

    IIRC April ranked as a Commodore (in the Diplomatic Corps?), so probably wouldn't have the "unless promoted to general or flag rank" thing, which allows personnel over 65 (75 in Starfleet) to stay in appropriate posts after that age if confirmed.

    Realistically, as suggested via Elias Vaughn, Starfleet probably has a "mandatory requalification after a certain age" policy rather than a retirement policy. If you're still in good enough shape, physically and mentally, and they have posts available you are allowed to remain after the "cut-off" age.

    It was a looooong time ago so someone with a sharper memory can correct me, but I think they just underestimated the costs involved in running a big competition.

    Oh, I wondered if there had been an issue with the terms and conditions, and copyright...

    Well CBS does own the rights to it. Part of the competition's rules and terms was that the winning design would become their property.

    Unfortunately, since Eaglemoss has already made a model of the novel verse Titan, that’s probably what they’d go with if they did show it. Which is a shame, because that ship design is worse than the Enterprise-F.

    Had to look it up since had no idea what it looks like:

    Meeeh

    I say, bring on the Stargazer.


    Let's say Picard is post Ambassador retiree but needs to go help the Romulans for something. He needs a ship and no one will give him one, so he steals the USS Stargazer from the mothball fleet yard. He could do it easily with something like "they never bothered to wipe my command codes when they put it in mothballs" There is going to be something poetic with him commanding a ship that was his first ever command as well as his last ever.

    I want to see both the Enterprise F and the Titan but with new canonical designs just for shits and giggles.

    Picard shouldn't command any ship, he's supposed to have changed, still being a captain doesn't fit that.

    Maybe Captain Beverly and hubby Picard can travel around the galaxy curing disease and space madness in the Pasteur.

    I'm glad someone gave some love for the good ship Pasteur, it lines up Driving Captain Picard with the Q-future timeline!

    Eaglemoss releasing a non canon ship does not mean they'd go with it should it ever appear on screen, the producers are not beholden to that at all.

    Would have to agree. Titan looks like a bastard child of other, better, late 24th century designs.

    Possibly, but I don't see CBS going out of their way to change ship designs that they probably don't even care all that much about anyway. Hopefully we will not see either ship in the Picard show.

    So you're actually agreeing with me that the Titan looks like shit?

    I voted on this poll before I read the title of the poll. NO, I do not want Picard to be in command (unless it's a small personal ship like a runabout). But YES, I want to see a ship involved in some respect. I'd personally like to see the Galaxy-class in action again (refitted, but only to update the look for a modern audience and with no third nacelles or other AGT additions). Think Geordi in command of the USS Challenger, or some other example.

    That sounds like a pretty boring show, Sideways in Space.

    Seriously though, Picard shouldn't command ship, but he should have a young captain who does the leg work/action stuff, while Picard does some high-level diplomatic stuff and have the captain be in charge of a different ship, not the Enterprise.

    I don't think the main setting will be on a ship at all. But it doesn't mean that Picard won't end up on some ship at some point during the the 10-hours. And if he is going to end up on a ship (any ship), I guarantee you he will end up in command.
