Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

They could have him as Admiral Picard and focus on him managing Starfleet or on a mission that goes wrong and he needs to step up. Have it as a short 8-10 episode run

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

After listening to Mr Picards views on Brexit and calling people stupid he has certainly phasered himself in the foot as far as I'm concerned. Feel free to warp into a star.

Do you have a link to where he called people "stupid" about Brexit, please, as I can’t find anything?

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

looks fantastic and the special effects are amazing. I just hope it isn't too cheesy and stupid and OTT with the comedy moments to try and appease The Orville fans.

I think it looks great and far more like Trek, with light hearted moments, actual exploration and not war.

Also the space scenes actually appear brighter and easier to see.

I think the change in leadership of making the show has helped a lot.

Why would they be trying to appease Orville fans.

Most Orville fans are also Discovery fans anyway, and (we) dont need to be appeased.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

There was also other info announced.

Before the series returns in Early 2019, there will be 4 mini 10-15 minute long episodes or "short Treks" getting released in Autumn. 1 per month.

They will focus on
Saru's backstory.
One about Harry Mudd
Tilly's journey on board Discovery
A man who wakes to find he is the only person on board a ship.

Also Pike's Number One, played by Majel Barrett in 'The Cage' will be played in Season 2 by Rebecca Romijn.

Unfortunately no. He was on a programme months ago and voiced an opinion that people who voted out were misguided and ill informed. I was rather cross with the dear chap.

They’re making it so. Sir Patrick Stewart will be returning to his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard in a new CBS All Access Star Trek series that tells the story of the next chapter in Picard’s life.
Stewart and executive producer Alex Kurtzman teamed up today to surprise fans at Star Trek Las Vegas with the exciting news.

Me too. It is going to be amazing seeing him back in uniform and the opening scene is going to be very emotional.
