That is, I would argue, a bit of a storytelling myth and a Hollywood conceit.

A person who was truly selflessly committed to principles may change the principles to which he is committed, but is unlikely to turn into a cynic or a cheat.

Looks pretty good F4U. It's a shame it will only be on CBS all Access.

That's two Star Trek series now on CBS All Access. They are pushing hard to bring in the Trekkies especially after the last JJ Abrams movie was such a dud.

Picard will be on Amazon Prime everywhere except the US.


Apparently the folks at CBS just hate Americans.

I’d rather it was on netflix, but it’s ok on cbs. I sub during the run of the season and then cancel. Just like HBO, DC and will for SW on Disney, when they all have good shows year around, I’ll sub at the end of each season and binge in a month.

Lets see, you have to pay for one service to see both Discovery and Picard.
We have to pay for *TWO* services to see these show now. Amazon Prime + Netflix.

QuIt your #%&*$# whining :P

But many of us, myself included, already have Netflix and Amazon Prime. Hence we have to pay for not one service but a THIRD service.

I was at Balticon, a Sci Fi/Fantasy convention this weekend and during one of the panels a guy named George Hrab pointed out that "All Good Things" happened just over 25 years ago (05/23/1994). When we're with future Picard that is supposed to be taking place 25 years in the future. In this series it is supposed to be happening about 25 years after the end of the series as well. I agree with the observation made in the panel that Picard has aged a lot better in the new series universe than the one in "All Good Things". ;-)

Lets face it, the man was born looking 50. Later in life that works FOR you. LOL Good for him!
He's certainly in good shape. He's very youthful when you see him speaking at conventions and interviews.
I hope we have him around for a long time.

That rock formation at about 1:22 looks familiar!

In the first episode of ST:TNG wasn't Bones 140 years old or something and still having some function in Star Fleet?
Here, both Picard and Riker seem a bit washed up a mere 20 years later.
..but I guess dealing with Wesley every week would do that to you, and the TOS crew were inherently much tougher. smile

Really looking forward to this...

I'm not watching any trailers. I don't want to spoil it. I think this is going to be excellent!

This video pretty much sums up my expectations for "Picard" as well. And despite the title, it isn't all just the modern political tie ins either. It's the destruction of a beloved character.

Still not watching trailers and couldn’t care less about others’ opinions. I think for myself, I’ll form my own, good or bad. wink

Amen brother Kryptonite.

I couldn't give a #%&*$# what a whining trekkie thinks, they are a bunch of sad entitlement-wannabe dorks nerdraging. They cursed and screamed about Discovery - which turned out to be the second best Trek series ever (after DS9). I'm pretty sure Picard will be even better than Discovery biggrin
