My feelings on this are massively mixed. If it's any good then yay, but if not then I'll just jam my fingers in my ears and go lalala like I do with Discovery.

I'm excited to see what the Post-Nemesis world of Star Trek looks like, and Patrick Stewart is a net improvement to anything he's in. Hopefully it's good.
If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

I agree with you on all accounts except one:

Lest anyone forget that the Emoji movie was a thing that was actually made. :nono:

He probably was an improvement on even that.

So getting into this a wee bit more, the voice-over in the trailer says:

Quote
"15 years ago—today—you led us out of the darkness. You commanded the greatest rescue armada in history. Then—the unimaginable. What did that cost you? Your faith? Your faith in us? Your faith in yourself? Tell us, why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?"

Also, from Wikipedia:

Quote
The series is set 20 years after Jean-Luc Picard's last appearance in Star Trek: Nemesis (2002), and finds the character deeply affected by the destruction of Romulus as depicted in the film Star Trek (2009).

So 5 years after Nemesis, Picard leads a rescue armada. The most likely destination for this armada is obviously Romulus. The mentioned "unimaginable" is possibly the actual destruction of Romulus, or perhaps some terrible mishap that took place shortly thereafter. Regardless, this "unimaginable" event seems to have some sort of connection with a decision Picard made ("...the unimaginable. What did that cost you?").

Region locking a trailer would possibly be the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. "No you can't watch an advert for our product, it might make you want to buy it! You might help create a buzz about it online. You might encourage other people to see it."

I've heard of movie production companies copyright striking the official trailers for their films on the films' official YouTube channels.

Never underestimate the power of dumb.

I'm guessing that's a direct quote from CBS? Because the trailer is indeed region locked. Easy enough to find mirrors though.

I was going to comment underneath that sentence saying that since it's that dumb, of course that's what happened. It's not that I didn't believe they'd region locked it, it was just that stupidity like that should be pointed out.

I know releasing the full versions of shows & movies is highly-dependent on distribution rights in each local region... perhaps trailers are for some reason subject to the same restrictions.

Yeah, that's more or less the point.  All real barriers to distribution are pretty much gone.  You can watch anything you want and whatever time you want where ever you want.  Except for these daft little artificial barriers to distribution that the cable companies and content providers artificially impose in order to hang onto a hopelessly outmoded business model.

Seriously.  I've been pretty religious about buying legitimate copies of anything that I like enough to stream more than a few times.  But when they insist on this kind of asinine restrictions on, "Oh, you found a legal copy of the song you want, but this album is only available in iTunes Nigeria currently.  Please check out the offerings available in your current region..."  I'm paraphrasing, but I'm not making this up.  Found a rare song by a band I liked and wanted to buy a legitimate copy.  I can't.  Because I'm not in fricking NIGERIA.

This is when I seriously start asking myself why I even bother trying the legal approach.  When they make it this difficult to be the good guy, why bother?  Why not just be a pirate?  And this is me, ME saying this.  I haven't pirated anything in darn near 2 decades!

Seems you got it pretty much figured it out.

I guess this will be a show with Picard starring as a kind of a captain of a rogueish ship, with questionable characters in it. I like where this is going, almost reads like what Logan is to the X-Man series.

Patrick Stewart will not be a part of a Trek that is complete garbage, so I have faith this will actually be good.  As someone else said, PatStew makes everything better.
