Really can’t wait for Star Trek: Picard. Easily one of my most anticipated shows in a long time. Just hope it lives up.

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

From the description of the short clip they showed, I wonder if Picard is suffering from dementia (or the 24th Century equivalent of it)? That would be a really interesting take....

Kind of similar to his role as Professor X in Logan if that’s the case. I don’t know I’d kind of rather that not be how he’s portrayed personally, but either way I’m still anticipating this.

Maybe he really does have Irumodic syndrome, like was shown in All Good Things.

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

Those don't seem like the right uniforms for that time period. They should be the grey shoulders with colored under-tunics.

Unless it's a flashback or holodeck.

That must be a flashback or something. No way they’d get that wrong. Kind of seems weird there would be a flashback involving the DS9/VOY uniforms though. The only time the TNG crew wore that style of uniform was in Generations. After that they switched over to the gray and black.

I don't want to see a frail Picard.

Yeah, I don’t need another of my icons torn down. Granted I realize this is going to be an old(er) man Picard, but I’d rather him not be frail in the sense that he’s lost his mind or something.

Looking forward to ST: PICARD. If they have similar writing and production quality of ST: Discovery it's going to be great series.

I hope he's going to be on a starship. That picture doesn't really instill too much confidence.

Are those actually the same as the DS9/VOY uniforms? The colored shoulders match them, but the collars look higher.

Didn't notice that. The DS9/VOY uniforms cut off at the neck and they wore an undershirt.

I think I read something on Twitter that said for legal reasons (CBS owns Star Trek, but Paramount still owns the movies, and there are other legal entanglements as well), they can't use the same exact uniforms seen in the series or movies, so they're slightly modified. I get the movies part, but am unsure about why they couldn't copy TNG or Voyager - maybe because that look was used in the first couple of TNG features?

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

If I recall, the TNG, DS9 and Voyager uniforms had an evolution. It’s possible these could fit somewhere in between what we’ve seen. Or they’re an alternative reality. Or they’re on earth, so perhaps cadet uniforms at the academy? Or they’re the same, and were just going off of fuzzy internet pictures.

There were a few different uniforms in the the TNG/DS9/VOY era.

TNG:
department colored uniforms with black upper/shoulder section without collar (seasons one and two)
department colored uniforms with black upper/shoulder section with collar (season three through seven, as well as some of the crew in Generations)
black uniform with department colored upper/shoulder section and gray undershirt (Generations
black uniform with gray upper/shoulder section with department colored undershirt (First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis)

DS9:
black uniform with department colored upper/shoulder section and gray undershirt (seasons one through part of season five I believe)
black uniform with gray upper/shoulder section and department colored undershirt (season five through seven)

VOY:
black uniform with department colored upper/shoulder section and gray undershirt (seasons one through seven)

Pretty sure that's accurate.

I’m glad it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be a situation where he’s lost his facilities or something. Curious to find out what caused him to leave Starfleet though. Easily one of my most hyped shows in a long time.

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

Didn't Picard say in the series he was planning to retire and work in a winery? So that seems up to par for what a retired Picard would be doing.

Decent 1st teaser. I'm really looking forward to it.

15 years ago you led us out of the darkness and commanded the greatest rescue armada in history. What event would this be referring to? First Contact, Nemesis, or something else? They had originally said the new series would take place 20 years after Nemesis, then Stewart reffered to it being 20 years after the end of the tv series. Now it's 15 years after some major event wheather it happened onscreen or not. It alludes to something happening that caused him to lose his faith. If it refers to losing his faith in Starfleet with something that happened onscreen than it would seem unlikely or odd that he would have stayed to be promoted to Admiral.

Funny, I don't think the teaser nixes that idea at all. I think it strengthens it. He left because he was starting to lose his memory.

I don’t know. Seems to me more like there was an incident that caused him to leave. Either something tragic or something that he didn’t agree with his Starfleet superiors on. I don’t feel like it’s a memory thing, but who knows at this point.

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

I’m sure the “rescue armada” will be something major that is depicted on the show. And something from that brings him back.

Can’t wait for this - my wife and I originally bonded over TNG so we’re both stoked.
