"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

New trailer dropped. Looks pretty cool.

If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

This has the potential to be ****ing amazing. However I've seen Discovery so I'm doing my best to temper my expectations. Star Trek TNG is the first show I ever watched to completion, and Star Trek has been a huge part of my life growing up.

Please, CBS please. Don't **** this up.

Well, I've been complaining for about 20 years that they should just make a Trek show set after TNG instead of constantly mining nostalgia with prequels and reboots. Since they don't have to worry about future events being set in stone that removes one major source of problems.

In Picard they also have a great lead character (unlike Discovery where they hobbled a good actress with an unlikeable character). So that's another plus.

BUT.....I have no faith that they can pull this off after seeing the total ****ing mess that Discovery was. Not all of Discovery's faults were caused by those two problems. Most were caused by ****ty writing.

I would also argue that Discovery has been hobbled by a revolving door of creative leads that made it difficult for the team and the show to find a groove and settle into it. It's hard to write well when you're answering to completely different people at different times with different ideas of what the show should be. If the Picard team can pick an idea and stick to it I think they have a much better shot of making this series succeed.

Red Letter Media pointed out that they have 21 producers. Watch the credits and count them. That's absolutely ridiculous.

I like how this looks. There's an interesting twist with what looks like the Borg kids from Voyager being in command of a pirate Borg cube. Seven of Nine seems to have had at least some of Annika Hansen resurface... or she's Seven of Nine but less Borg-y. And Data's fat because Spiner got fat. Not sure I like that aspect of the show.

Fat Data. Hmm.

Can androids get fat?

I'm hoping the over-the-top trailer music isn't indicative of Discovery-style melodrama.

This is giving me red alert signs everywhere. Picard? Data? Seven of Nine? The Borg? Another plot about saving the universe? Looks like a college-written pitch for a fan novel that every roomate will just laugh at its over-the-topness.

I like how Data looks though. Finally looking his actual age. The movies were a bit weird in that regard.

Oh no, they're reusing some of the best characters and plot lines! THE HORROR!
