    Maybe we can start with a Picard news Mega Thread, so we don't have a million and one threads.

    But every time a little bit of news breaks no one will post it on page 300 of an existing thread. Or even if they do, someone else (e.g. me :)) will still create a new thread anyway.

    Why don't we just have a single thread for the entire forum?

    Back when I were a lad we used to cope with multiple threads across multiple groups constantly -- the threads also branched off. Things were so specific we had a whole forum set up to discuss Wesley Crusher.

    I tended to hang out on UMTSS though, given that we were usually some months or years behind US trek, it didn't make sense to partake in such jolities.

    They should make a new subforum for each of the official announced new series already.

    They should make a subforum for every individual user to post their thoughts on "Picard."

    Yeah Thursday is the day we'll get tons of new Picard and Lower Decks news and probably trailers. Click!

    I know how the sausage is made. Artificially amping up the thread count won't do. But I think the traffic will naturally explode from Saturday on. So no amping up would be needed.

    No, all the Thursday and Friday panels are about past Trek or tangentially related. The big one focused on Discovery, Lower Decks, and then Picard is Saturday.

    We really need a PIC-subforum until Sunday.

    Also it is going to be madness, cats and dogs living together, and the the same thread being posted in the main thread, the future thread, the old TNG thread, and so on...

    The panels are on Saturday, not Thursday.

    Though the Picard art gallery opens on Thursday, so we'll get some very basic info from that probably.

    Maybe a poster of Picard with a cat that looks a lot like Flerken that will hint at PIC and MCU crossover event. The Interwebz will explode!

    Don't know when the new forum will pop up but Simply Red put it best. "I'll keep holding on."

    At this point, we'll probably need a Lower Decks subforum by Saturday too
