I admit, the Seven of Nine bit at the end has my interest XD

And did they actually manage to get Brent Spiner back in those yellow contact lenses XD

well that explains the alleged borg concept art that was floating around not so long ago, looks awful to be honest from that trailer, its got bad reboot written all over it but as with STD I will watch it to make an informed critique.

Thanks. I searched and found this one as well. God, Stewart looks and sounds so damn old (and obviously he is); it worked form him as Professor X in short bursts in the recent xmen trilogy and Logan but I'm not sure about this return. Jeri Ryan on the other hand was a pleasant surprise though. So apparently the girl is some sort of a borg then?

Maybe not Borg, but the trailer definitely implied some kind of connection between mystery girl and the Borg (would also explain why she might go to Picard, aka Locutus, for help and feel safe with him), and I find myself leaning toward Formosa that it sounds ripe for contrived and dreadful storytelling ala Discovery. But I like Patrick Stewart enough, and I almost feel compelled to poke in and watch just to see Seven of Nine and Data/Data's brother whose name I forget from Nemesis and what's up with them.

Also, now that I think of it I find myself questioning the description of this series as a psychological exploration of Picard's character. it doesn't look like it. It looks like a spy thriller vis Star Trek. A Psychological exploration of Picard, with slow and long conversation with other returning cast would be way more interesting to me, exploring the impact of the man on the universe and talking about what came of it since we last peaked in. The girl/borg/samurai Vulcan bit looks like the least interesting part of this show, and I feel damn sure it'll make up most of the run time.

Lore? He was also in more than Nemesis. Considering they showed the body and Picard said that Data died saving him I'm guessing the card game is in a holodeck with Data imprinted into it or just a pure simulation. I don't know what/who Formosa is so off to the interwebs!


All that being said I'm a simple man: no Q no subscription.

Under the couch

The android in Nemesis was B4, not Lore.


The Borg connection with the girl sends obvious from the trailer progression (my first thought was that she's the Borg queen before she was Borg, somehow catapulted into our originally from the future) but hopefully that means it's a bit of misdirection and she's actually something else entirely.

Nice surprise seeing Jeri Ryan and Brent Spiner, particularly after the early rumors had all said that none of the TNG cast had been asked back, other than Jonathan Frakes who was brought in to do some directing.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I'm getting a horrible creeping suspicion that it won't be long before people start seeing the Novelverse's handling of the Borg as literary genius by comparison.

My theory is that the girl is Chakotay and Seven's daughter - some sort of Borg/Human hybrid.

I also have bad feelings about this. There is good in there, but most of it looks like trash, and once again we have more evidence that the current group of writers and producers do not know what Trek is.

It's about exploration and discovery.

Feth off with that gak. Send it back to star wars and other B movie scifi where it belongs....

Seven is a great addition. Of all the people int he Galaxy, she needs to seek out Picard. He's the only one who understands her. Honestly, I have thought for decades that this is what would have happened. It's just unfortunate that we're going to have yet again another "Mount Doom the Universe to Hell" story instead of what could be ernest trek.

Interesting write up from DenofGeek.

https://www.denofgeek.com/uk/tv/star-trek/66548/star-trek-picard-sdcc-trailer-breakdown-and-analysis

Didn't realise that was Hugh in the trailer.

I'm wondering if the Borg thing is a sign Janeway was successful in destroying the Collective at the end of Voyager.

It could mean the Borg being seemingly held prisoner are former assimilates who decided to return to the Alpha Quadrant, seeking their old homes and lives?

If not Ben Sisko, Jake Sisko would be interesting to see, and his younger sister... Sibling? Can't remember if the series ever confirmed the baby's sex. She was a she in the continuation novels.

Well, at least Spiner has a couple reasons to not be dead in this (unlike his character in another sequel).

Whats with the weird Vulcan(?) with the sword (?). His face looks heavily CGI'd for no reason I can discern. I hereby dub him Samurai Elf.


This looks like its going to be 'Misfits and Renegades visit the seedy hidden underbellies of Utopia and the Admirals/Section 31 are always evil.'

7 of 9 working with/meeting Picard seems like such a duh thing. I never thought of it, but now that I have...

He seems like one of the few people that would understand what she went through, as previously mentioned, and I imagine Picard would be the go to Federation guy for ex-Collective members.
