Oh come on, it just ruins it, makes anything else coming seem artificial. Not happy at all with that outcome.
Saw that coming - "Chekhov’s Gun" came to mind when that appeared in a previous episode.

Having an artificial heart is one thing.

Spoiler: 
being completely artificial in every way is something else. I know it’s probably trying to send out metaphysical questions about what it is to be human.

But in the next series, you are no longer looking at a frail 90 odd year old man that could have the weaknesses and issues a 94 year old man may have. You are looking at an android that (underneath) is super strong, super brain processing power, will never be tired, will never forget anything etc etc etc.) It is not a 90 yr old man. It takes away the human element , and all the weaknesses associated, of Picard


That’s why, the next series will be all the more weaker for it.

I read on a site somewhere that what they did was a possibility, but I never thought that would be the case.

Loved the series but I can’t understand why they would go this way.

But hey, apparently there was a 3 series deal or something like that so it must all be mapped out. I’ll wait and see.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

It threw me a bit as well and even before that happened I thought "why doesn't Seven inject him with some nanoprobes, surely they can fix it?" That is the one thing which has hit my realism factor so far. I would like to see Seven's more Borgy side come through a bit more. I was hoping that when she was in the close quarters fight scenes in earlier episodes that when she didn't have a weapon and it came to crunch time she would use her assimilation tubules to inject nanoprobes into somebody to incapacitate them.

Back on topic though, I am assuming what happened happened because it is presumably going to play into the season 2 story arc.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

Fantastic news. We were already aware that Guinan is coming back for season 2 and I have just found out that talk are underway for Geordie to return as well. That just leaves Worf who they'll probably hold back for season 3. I don't even want to have to say this but let's hope they don't kill any of them off. If they do I'll be pressing the stop button.

Wonder if they will get Beverley back.

I’d actually like to see Wesley and Robin Crusher put in an appearance. They made so much out of the relationship between Picard and Wes in the earlier seasons of TNG it deserves revisiting. Plus it’s about time Wes’ marriage to Robin Leffler was canonised.

I was never too fussed about her. All she ever wanted to do is use a dermal regenerator scan your hippocampus

That being said, I know they went their separate ways but I wouldn't mind seeing Beverley and Wes come back as a duo. I have a new found admiration for Will Wheaton after the The Big Bang Theory, I thought he was hilarious and played the part so well.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

Scott Bakula is returning to Star Trek with the possibility of his own series. Not sure whether it is going to be Picard or Discovery to start off with:

Re: Star Trek: Picard

As much as I liked Archer. It would make zero sense having him in Picard or Discovery.

Archer was around many years before the original series and those two shows are hundreds of years after that time.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

There’s about a century between the end of Enterprise and the beginning of Strange New Worlds. So even if they try to shoehorn him in close to his own period they’re going to have to do stupid ageing makeup like they did with McCoy to fit him in to the first episode of TNG. More likely they would end up doing either a convoluted time travel plot line or a holodeck story. Neither of these appeal to me much at all ...

Re: Star Trek: Picard

The Pike series is still about 100 years after Enterprise took place so really wouldn't work.

My bet would be on a time travel story.
