Re: Star Trek: Picard

It will be about 5 years after Nemesis and possibly will reveal the events that lead him to retire from Starfleet.

Amazon own the distribution rights for the Picard series and they are also showing this "second season" of shorts.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

They are? I knew they have Picard but thought as Netflix had Discoveet and Short Trek already that they would have them again.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

My bad, I misread it. I am sure they have already got it sorted out but it is going to be interesting given that the Pike and Spock stories will be Netflix owned stuff and the Picard short will be Amazon you would have thought. That being said, the whole conversation might be mute because I don't think Netflix showed the first lot of shorts, I think they were only available through CBS online in the US.

They do, but they've buried them under 'Trailers & More' and have never promoted them. Apparently they only got them as a free addition as part the Season 2 package - they originally weren't going to carry them as CBS wanted Netflix to pay extra for them

Some of Season 2 references them so would have been odd if they weren't available.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

The short trek episodes weren't part of the Discovery deal. However they did get shown on Netflix after a few months and a deal was done. It maybe all but the Picard one will be on Netflix. As there are 3 based on the Pike Enterprise and a Picard one and the final 2 are animated.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

Yeah, they are absolutely rubbish. You can tell it is something they got the weaker characters to do inbetween filming the normal eps. "Hey, you are not needed for the next couple of hours so shall we pop over to the mess hall and you can pretend to act and we'll make a shitty story where we break established starfleet rules and regulations?".

They are only 15 minutes and you blast through them in no time but you honestly ask.yourself at the end of each one "whyyyyyyyyy?"

Re: Star Trek: Picard

I have. A couple were pretty good and there are things in season 2 that follow on from the first one in particular which was centred on Tilly and the queen that shows up at the end of season 2.

I also enjoyed Calypso, which may or may not reveal what happened to Discovery after a long time in the future.

The one with Harry Mudd was also fairly decent.

They were created to shorten the time between season 1 and 2.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

I would even watch Runaway as that's the one that introduces the character that helps in the finale and makes friends with Tilly.

The other one was Brightest star that tells the back story of the 1st officer before he left the Kelpian planet. But if you have already seen all the episodes you might not want to.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

I liked the Kelpian episode, it was the only good one. Even though it was only 15 minutes it added so much history and enhanced the story for the main episode for me. It is a shame they couldn't someway have made it mandatory viewing or incorporated it in another episode "10 years ago..........." (or however long ago it was). The Tilly episode did my nut in big time, I wanted to smash her face in. They shouldn't have been allowed to make that episode, it goes against we know. If Star Trek was new we wouldn't know anything different but we have got decades of TNG, DS9, Voyager and even Enterprise and that episode contradicts every flipping rule and regulation in the book. What made it even more laughable is that she was supposed to be training to be an officer yet can't follow the prime directive, can't report intruders to security and can't report potential threats or first contact situations to her captain. What an absolute joke. She does my head in and has done from the start. Her character is completely false and her undisciplined and erratic behaviour would never be tolerated on the bridge of a Starfleet ship.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

I like Tully, but the way I see her is a person who led a sheltered life and may or may not have ADHD or a similar learning difficulty. Who wants to do more than people said she could. I think she is fun and will prove to be very important in the next series. Without her short though the character she meets would not have been there to help when the plot required it.

I really do hope we get a confirmed start date for Picard soon.
