And a 3rd season for Picard as well. That's a lot of Trek coming our way.
Lots of quantity, not sure on quality...

I'll give Picard another crack mostly to see John de Lancie as Q again.

Strange New Worlds has potential, those actors and plotline were the lone bright spot of Discovery so far.

Lower Decks I expect will continue to be great.

The rest I'll pass on, I've moved on from Discovery and Prodigy is too kid targeted.

Okay, I dont know who said 'No' but 'No' was said.

Besides Star Trek has a long and illustrious history of being free from the meddling of Producers and Studio Executives, they have historically had a very free hand with how they run their show. This is all a bald faced lie.

That was all Rick Berman's idea. The guy was responsible for first couple of seasons of DS9 before jumping ship to Voyager. He wanted to implement his vision of what he thought Gene Roddenberry Trek was, which was flawed in itself since Roddenberry wanted zero inter-crew conflicts of any kind and that every episode should "reset".

After tanking Voyager with Kazons and Chakotay, his idea to boost rating was to bring on seven of nine "a borg babe" and nerfing the Borg. Guess who came up with seven's outfit and the Enterprise decontamination room? Helps with some fan, but really not with wider audiences and doesn't add to story telling. Although, he's still better than Kurtzman and STD, at least Voyager still had the occasional brilliant episode.

You could see how much DS9 improved immediately when Ron Moore and Ira Steven Behr took over from Berman for season 3.

I didn't realize that it was Ron Moore who took over. I'm in the middle of a Battlestar Galactica rewatch.

It was Behr alone who was promoted to showrunner, and he took over after Michael Piller moved on to co-create Voyager with Berman. Ron D. Moore was added to the writing staff in the third season after finishing up TNG, and he eventually became a "co-executive producer" on the last couple seasons. DS9 also added Rene Echevarria from TNG. They basically split the TNG writers room in two, with Moore, Echevarria, Hans Beimler, Robert Hewitt Wolfe going to DS9 and Jeri Taylor, Brannon Braga and Joe Menosky following Berman and Piller to Voyager.

I am deeply concerned that we are going to see more of our favourite characters and star trek lore irreparably damaged.

I watched this and my first thought was not this sh%t again, they did it in generations, they did it in the original series, they did it in Enterprise they did it in Voyage.



Writer - "Lets do a time travel arch it'll be a new thing where the Captain goes back in time to stop "


Some dude - "Its been done"


Writer - "Sure, but we'll involve the Borg"


Some dude - "Its been done"


Writer - "We'll send them back to the late past in earth and do a fish out of water . . . "


Some dude - "Its been done"


Writer - "But Q"


Some dude - "Its been done but we can make an old man Q action figure brilliant"


Writer - "Hey we had discovery time travel, and they can whip around a sun backwards. Can you imagine a Burnham Picard team, its rating gold"


Some Dude - "I just peed myself a little"
