Show about a wine making guy.

Has Patrick Stewart, how bad can it be?

I'm excited to see what they do here and will sub to CBSflix for this day one. I'm hoping to knock out the back episodes of the new Star Trek series with that sub, too.

I don't really think of myself as a Trekkie, but TNG is in my memories the same way Mr Rogers or Sesame Street is.

If it's a character-driven show with a retired Picard puttering around in a vineyard, that actually sounds quite a bit better than him doing space action schlock.  I don't know what will actually happen on the show but I'm more interested in finding out than in watching the latest movie in the JJverse or whatever is currently representing the brand.

Maybe it'll be a talk show where he interviews other characters from the various series?

I think the trailer implies the show is mostly about the bad thing that happened involving spaceships 15 years ago, which as this is supposed to be 2397, would mean events a few years after the films of which we do not speak.

I will remind you that Patrick Stewart played the poop emoji in the Emoji Movie so... that bad.

I almost feel like my joke prediction that this would be Star Trek: Chateau Picard is coming true.

"Next week on Star Trek: Chateau Picard, Jean-Luc and his old friend Admiral Data race against time to find a cure for Andorian phylloxera before it completely destroys the oldest cabernet vines on the east ridge. In the meantime, a sinister plan to replace Chateau Picard wines with Cardassian kanar at Sisko's Creole Kitchen unfolds. Guest-starring Brent Spiner and Cirroc Loften."

Supposedly this isn't actually connected to TNG at all, but a different timeline Picard (rights issues or something weird, I don't remember exactly what the deal is, just that there were a lot of rights issues surrounding Star Trek and that this wasn't a TNG sequel).

It could be interesting, but I'm not that interested, personally. Picard was never my thing when it came to Star Trek. Has a better shot of being good than Discovery (which I guess got better? Don't know, I dropped it pretty quick in disgust/boredom).

"Tell us, why did you leave Starfleet, Admiral?"

"Uh, because I'm like 95 years-old"

I am not sure I like this idea, but then again I have no idea what it is.  I am a Picard/TNG fan more than I am a trekkie as such, but I am not sure this is something we need.

Its murky but from what I can tell, CBS has complete control of Star Trek TV rights (which includes streaming).  Paramount the movie studio has rights over feature movies which are now basically dead after the Abrams/Lin trilogy although Tarantino still wants to make one.

So this show is well within the TNG timeline/continuity.

Sort of. From what I understand the Picard series will be incorporating the destruction of Romulus from the J.J. Abrams movies. So.. part of the Kelvin timeline, but only sorta? https://www.thewrap.com/star-trek-picard-everything-we-know-about-patrick-stewart-return/

There's also been rumours (no idea if true/false or confirmed/denied) that Picard's Enterprise crew in this new-ish(?) timeline was not the same as the TNG crew (thus meaning there won't be a crew reunion of any sorts on the show in the way some fans seem to be hoping).

Is it just me, or is that voice over just horrible?  It's so over-dramatic and fake sounding.  And if it's meant to be someone actually speaking to Picard, that just makes it worse.  Nobody in any universe real or imagined would speak to someone like that.

The only way it feels right is if it's some kind of dystopian or inhuman questioning. If that's meant to be an actual human, it's really off and really clumsy.

It’s probably just a poor trailer.  Discovery had a bad teaser. Stewart will be good to great even with drek.

If it's post the destruction of Romulus, it should still be in the prime universe.

You know, the easy way out for them on the ST: Reboot is that Nero and Prime Spock travelled to an alternate universe--not the Mirror Universe, just a different one--and mistook it for a simple time jump.

We already established in the TNG episode "Parallels" that every time anyone makes a decision it creates a new parallel universe, so you can say that any given episode occurs in its own reality if you want.   awesome, for real

Yeah, except there's a lot of canon episodes that seem to contradict that (not to mention a Starfleet agency that runs around trying to keep the timeline from being damaged).

If Picard has his dune buggy and Worf's purple space bazooka, I'm all in.

Or just never mention Nero or Prime Spock or JJ Abrams.
