Well... I think I'm both encouraged and discouraged by that article. 


Its encouraging that they brought Stewart into the writers room as a sound board. Also... for the rumor naysayers that think Picard would never be involved in Sec 31 because he wouldn't do covert work... one of the most famous and beloved episodes he goes on a covert assignment and gets captured!  So if that is part of the narrative... because that seems to be a thread for all the JJ-Verse... then there is some precedence... but I don't have to like that everything in trek has to do with sec 31 now.


On the more discouraging side is commentary about trek basically being aimed for a young demographic... coupled with his reference to Star Wars tells me that He still doesn't get what Roddenbery or even what Berman's Trek was about. My fear has always been... and it seems substantiated, that Kurtzman loves his conspiracy driven/teamed shows, and that they have made that the fundamental moral base and characteristic of his kind of Trek.

but... but... they say themselves that most of their rumors turn out to be true! :ninja:



My friend and I went on a double date to see a show... everyone hated it but me... thus I conclude that 75% of the population hated that show!

Certainly lots of rumors... one of the chief complaints I hear... and its been made right here on this forum too is that CBS has basically been asleep at the creative wheel... instead looking at Trek purely from its ability to pay royalties w/o putting anything (or work) back into the franchise.


I tend to agree with this view... after all it was pretty much Paramount taking the risk through the Berman era... and I bet there are a few fans that were pretty critical of ENT that wish they could have that back again! CBS hasn't really ever taken a risk on Trek... NBC aired it and CBS ended up with it when they purchased Desilu... and then Paramount was really the one that took it through to ENT.


Maybe CBS should sell the IP to someone that wants to invest back into it?

Sooooo... Fake news?  :roflmao:


There are tons of fanboy blogs out there that tell you everything thats wrong with every franchise, including Star Trek.


I've skimmed some of the Star Trek ones... and I do agree with some of the opinions... especially those that question if the writing of the new Picard will be any better then DISCO when you basically have the same creative team in charge.


What I think (hope?) will be different is that Sir Patrick Stewarts acting... his ability to really connect will make a difference, even if the plot is garbage. We saw this already in DISCO, the most interesting characters are those where the actor is able to make a connection to the audience... Issac's Lorca and Mount's Pike have been standouts to me.
