Star Trek Picard First Teaser Trailer



25 years ago, ‘All Good Things’ brought us to an end. The end is only the beginning.

I don't know... I'm still waiting for Discovery on disc, haven't seen it yet, but ... not sure what this is going to bring to Trek that's new and different.

Honestly,and I do love Trek, I'm actually more excited for the new season of The Expanse which, in my opinion, portrays a much more realistic view of social interaction in the near future.

I loved Next Generation, despite all of its flaws. But you can't go back. Picard was great and I like Patrick Stewart but he retired the character at the right time.

Anson Mount was a fantastic Captain (Captain Christopher Pike).

He's too old to carry this series. I loved him in ST:TNG, among many other titles he's been terrific in, but this is asking too much.

It's not going to work.

Picard WILL carry the series, because no one else will.

I don't know how long it's been since you guys watched TNG, but I just finished the entire series (again) a few months back.

His performance doesn't waver throughout the entire series. He's ALWAYS Picard, always perfect.

I might like him better than any captain of the Enterprise, ever.

I cannot wait for this.

He's going to have trouble carrying himself to the toilet, let alone carrying an entire series.

That's how he feels about trips to the toilet.

The man is old. OLD. He turns EIGHTY in six weeks.

God bless him. Great guy, great actor. OLD.

At least I admitted my awfulness at my age joke. On the flip side, there are some 80 year olds who run marathons. It depends what kind of octogenarian he is. He was indeed my favorite captain as well, and growing up I thought he looked really old in TNG! Let me guess, I'll have to subscribe to CBS All Access for this?

In that picture Patrick Stewart reminds me of how my dad looks when he's trying to understand something but the dementia is kicking his ass a little too hard that day.

2:05 - "I should have done this a long time ago" is what he's thinking.

There was another later series in the Enterprise franchise that didn't really work so well for me.

The one thing I did like was the intro though, the best of all in my opinion.

Agreed. I tried to get into Enterprise, but I guess I just didn't like the characters.

There's one pathway to success for this series. They need Stewart to draw in the viewers for the first season and hope for a breakout star among the rest of the ensemble to carry the show going forward. If they rely on him, this is a one or two season show at best. If they can create a new and charismatic character within the ST universe to carry the show, Stewart's name might be enough to get it on folks' radar to allow fans to find that new actor and new character.

Really? THAT is the imagery to pair with "unimaginable?" :facepalm:

The dude's retired and drinking fine wine. Leave him retired, lol.

Naw, Patrick Stewart is a great actor. It will probably be a decent series. Discovery wasn't horrible, it just wasn't "Star Trek" it was more like The Walking Dead... it was just the characters moving from one action sequence to another with some romance thrown in between action sequences.

There was none of the moral dilemma that was the hallmark of Star Trek and what really separates it from Star Wars.

But, it wasn't terrible to watch and had a few good episodes here and there.

This will probably be about the same. High budget with good actors moving from one action scene to another. I will watch it, I just won't pay for it.
