The commerical breaks are like 60 seconds. that's about a third of the time of regular TV.

TREK News Roundup: PICARD & SECTION 31 Updates, READY ROOM on All Access, DISCO Looking Abroad Again? | TrekCore Blog

Patrick Stewart says his Picard series could run up to 3 seasons.

Also, Alex Kurtzman is hoping the Section 31 spinoff with Michelle Yeoh will air after Discovery season 3 airs.

re: Future Star Trek TV projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

I see a lot of people bashing Discovery but after the first 4 Episodes it has been quite excellent IMO, and Season 2 has been terrific. It is the best looking show on TV easily, and is quite engrossing. It is not perfect: the main character is sort of a bore, and the Klingons are not awesome, but all in all it is some of the best Star Trek I have seen. I welcome the Picard series though I really would like to see Star Trek the 3rd generation set 75 years or so after the Picard series. It's $5 and the commercials are like maybe 2 minutes of the entire show.

re: Future Star Trek TV projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

Star Trek is boldly going on a new mission where only men have gone before. Hanelle Culpepper will direct the first two episodes of the upcoming untitled Star Trek Jean-Luc Picard series, making her the first woman to direct a pilot or debut episode of a Starfleet series in the franchise’s 53-year history. All 13 feature films in the Trekuniverse have also been directed by men.

Culpepper has directed two episodes of Star Trek Discovery on CBS All-Access. She helmed the episode titled Vaulting Ambition in Season One as well as an upcoming episode in Season Two, now underway on the subscription streaming site.

The as-yet-untitled Star Trek series features Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on Star Trek: Next Generation. The new series will follow the iconic character into the next chapter of his life and will air exclusively on CBS All Access in the United States with concurrent international distribution by CBS Studios International.

This. So much THIS. This is exactly why, speaking for myself, I am pissed at CBS for hiding Trek behind a pay wall. It's not about the money, well it is to some degree, I don't like this ala cart pay model that everyone has been begging for. But it is more about the principle of the matter that this is the time for Trek to capture a NEW audience. Trek is kind of like Harley Davidson at this point in that they have their loyal fanbase but they're getting old. And if they don't capture a new audience then Trek will eventually die off. Love 'em or hate 'em I think they've done a great job with the Abramsverse capturing that new audience. There have been people that never grew up on Trek discovering it and liking it. While I understand that CBS and Paramount are two different entities (and that's part of the problem) this isn't time to be milking the Trek faithful for every last red cent. This is the time they should have opened it up to try to capture a wider audience. I mean if they're going to change Trek anyways to GoTTrek might as well try to capture a larger audience by having it available on broadcast TV, or a subscription service with a wider base. Instead they use it like a dangling carrot to get people to sign up for their stupid streaming experiment.

I was excited about this when it was first announced but the more I think about it, it's a bad idea.

re: Future Star Trek TV projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

I don't get CBS's refusal to revisit DS9. I've heard anecdotally that it is the most popular of the Treks on Netflix, the documentary's success would seem to affirm that. It doesn't have the biggest fanbase but it has the most fanatical and devout. DS9 fans love Sisko in a way you just don't hear TOS or TNG fans talk of Kirk and Picard. Ditto Kira, Odo, Bashir and especially Garak. Obviously a complete recast is required and new characters to replace all the ones who left, but the opportunity is there.

re: Future Star Trek TV projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

I think Deep Space Nine has the most compelling overarching story with the Dominion Wars arc, which makes it rewatchable if a person is really into it or probably pretty binge worthy for people watching it for the first time. I think that also doesn’t make it as easily accessible to some people compared with TOS or TNG which you can pretty much just pick up and watch from wherever. None of the characters to me are as interesting on DS9 compared with TOS or TNG personally. I think there’s a reason why you see the TOS cast revisited continually (for better or worse) and why this Picard series is happening.

re: Future Star Trek TV projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

DS9 was the best Trek series, IMO, and with the recent documentary and the writers getting back together to map out what Season 8 could be (just for fun) shows that they could easily pick up 20 years later and do another season or three.

DS9 holds up better than ANY Trek show has after a decade or more off the air. TNG was great, but inconsistent and it has aged much more than DS9 has. TOS was great, but due to the styles and technology of the time (showing up in the costumes and sets) that show, while still great, is definitely really dated. Voyager wasn't very good, Enterprise started off poorly, and the new show doesn't look or feel like Trek.

I'm not signing up for CBS All Access for any of the projects they've got going on, but if they brought DS9 back I'd do it. In a heartbeat.

Man normally I don't get into debates of taste, but I can't let this one go. You have GOT to be kidding. DS9 had the most compelling bunch of characters of the series.

Sisko: a single father, reluctant religious figure and eventual leader of a war
Kira: A former terrorist who repeatedly had to deal with her past.
Dax: A centuries old alien who could hang with the Klingons
Odo: Conflicted over the war and separated from his people.
Bashir: Under the brash young doctor was a major secret.
Garak: Exiled from his world, a bottomless pit of secrets. Easily Trek's best anti-hero
Dukat: Star Trek's greatest villain
Quark: Mostly comic relief but occasionally fun.
Morn:

DS9 had the best bunch of characters. The problem is they were scattered to the wind at the end. That makes a reboot a challenge, but also a clean slate.

The real genius of DS9 was Ron Moore. He wrote the best episodes, including "In The Pale Moon Light." YOu can see many early ideas that would later show up in BSG.

But I am a little concerned that they are being polluted with political correctness. Ira gave an interview where he said he wished he'd made an openly gay character and that Garak was gay but closeted. In the hypothetical 8th season, they introduced a new ship called USS Emmit Till. Seriously?

You made a fantastic point until your last few lines. Having a gay character doesn't mean being "politically correct" it means showing real life diversity. Gay people are real, they exist. It is a travesty that Star Trek took until Discovery to show an openly gay character. ST should have been leading the charge. I work in an office with nearly 200 people and we're in the Chicago suburbs. You'd better believe there's a mix of ethnic groups here because that's how the area is. Watching some like Brooklyn 99 seems more real to me now than a show with 99% white people and a token character of color. Seeing multiple ethnicities represented no longer feels like pandering to me, it's when a show doesn't have a mix of real people that it feels fake.

re: Future Star Trek TV projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

It shouldn't be relevant. In this context it smacks of virtue signalling. It's one thing for Sisko to be a proud son of NOLA who loves his jamabalaya and decorates his quarters with African art. It's another thing to call attention to it. Ok, Garak was gay. So? He was one of the most fascinating characters ever and Andy Robinson did an awesome job. His preferences should mean nothing. Well, other than Ziyal was wasting her time.

Trek went through great pains to erase ethnicity and race. All of the DS9 cast dated or married outside their race except Sisko. If race doesn't matter, why should sexuality?

But really that's minor compared to the Emmit Till ship. That really left me scratching my head.

Eh, you're wrong there (bolded part). Trek, particularly DS9, embraced the issue of race/ethnicity. A post racist society like the Federation/Starfleet isn't colorblind - it sees all the colors and embraces the differences and sees the beauty in those differences. Having LGBT characters is the same thing. It's not making a point to show them - it's making a point to say "these people exist here on Earth and they will also exist in space".

To be fair it’s been a long time since I’ve watched DS9. Also I probably shouldn’t have said not interesting, but more like they aren’t always the most likable cast or can get a bit grating from what I remember.

I actually decided to start watching it over again. Just watched the premiere episode earlier and will probably watch a couple more later. Man one thing though, it looks pretty rough. Really too bad we probably won’t get remasters for it or Voyager.
