My fav uniforms are still the Nemesis version. Although from the older stuff I still love the Khan era uniforms.

In fairness, they have even kept the uniforms fairly simple in the films. IIRC, in TNG, the dress uniforms were a little more detailed, but that's as it should be, IMO.

They had little choice, as they were still producing contemporaneous TV episodes at the time. Whenever new material is made in isolation there’s always the temptation to embellish. The original motion picture uniforms were something of an exception, but the rest of the classic films were rather more of a departure than anything on TV.

For all his mucking about with alternative timelines, Abrams did a pretty faithful job of the uniform in his films. It’s a pity Discovery didn’t take a leaf out of his book (and it was Discovery I was really thinking of when I posted).

Re: Star Trek: Picard

The scale and texture of the Trekverse on show in this new series is amazing. It is eclipsing all the previous TV shows and is fast on the way to surpassing the movies, and all we’ve actually seen so far is Earth and a defunct Borg cube. And a bit of Mars. And Hugh.

Engage!

This is the perfect example I need when I try to explain to people what I mean by my realism factor, proper stories, depth and caring about characters. This series is perfect because they are showing off the new special effects, doing a new story with new characters but still staying true to the main character. There are all these little moments where they keep honouring him and letting us know that they know (the producers) who he is and give him the respect he deserves. It is the little things he says and does that do it for me like when he walked onto the bridge and looked at the captain's chair like he was going to sit on it or in ep 1 when he was playing with Data at the beginning and Data asked him why he was hesitating and he replied "because I don't want it to end" and I thought "I don't want it to end either " I like how they also addressed the absence of team TNG as well in the last episode because from our point of view it makes sense that if he is in a tight spot he would turn to the people he knows and can trust. I am still holding out hope that when it really counts, Worf comes crashing through the window with his Bat'leth and pastes some Romulans or Borg.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

Also, given the development of the story over seven seasons and finally Nemesis, there is a very satisfying completeness in his having pushed for the grand rescue mission and also to have a couple of Romulans working for him (and them also obviously caring very deeply for each other). I love the way they’ve drawn Laris in particular. Obvs Orla Brady genuinely is Irish, but they have written dialogue that allows her natural accent to warm whatever scene she’s in. Laris even speaks Irish idioms, which leads me to think somewhere in the show Bible it says when she came to Earth she spent time in Ireland and learned to speak English there. There is such attention to detail in it. I’d put money on it being built to out-last Pat Stewart’s involvement.

Re: Star Trek: Picard

I agree, putting the current story line aside and the necessity for them being there, if Worf & co can't be around to defend Picard then who better than two Tal Shiar?

maybe but somebody needs to tell them now it is a big NO NO to kill him off. They have obviously done the whole him going back France and the family chateau thing so they need to come up with him making a different dignified exit in line with the character. The way the story is going (and thinking about how ep 1 started) I wouldn't mind the scientist from the Daestrom Institute developing the technology to harvest one of Dahj's neurons, implant it in B4 and bring back Data and Picard and Data venturing off into the sunset to live happily ever after.

Christopher Lee was still acting into his early 90's so l think Patrick Stewart has a few years left yet.

I think you missed the point slightly, you can only act if you are alive and well.
