In Topic: New Star Trek Series starring Patrick Stewart

As "the last chapter" of the TNG era I hope they don't screw this up with some Mirror Universe Picard stuff, ::sigh:: or "Picard was an alien this whole time," because that's gonna retroactively ruin the old TNG seasons for some people. I don't wanna jinx this, but there's a not-insignificant danger of that happening because a lot of the sci-fi showrunners these days are taking a full regimen of Crazy Pills.


I wonder if it's gonna be the same type of thing as Kirk in the TOS movies: an admiral in retirement itching to round up his old crew for some last adventure.


I'm really hoping the setting is just an older Picard on the Enterprise-E with a mix of old and new crew, X-Files-reboot-style that's popular now, but I think there's still room for some face-palmingly weird angle that we're just not imagining the studio going in but that could totally happen: Picard in Retirement and writing a book with flashbacks, Picard as a Quantum Leap time traveler lost in time, Tom Hardy as Yung Picard, or Picard as academy instructor.

A tremendous bit of news, one that I'm a little cautious of simply because Kurtzman does not have the best track record of all time with Trek.


But if it brings modern Trek out of TOS-era revisitation and revisionism, I'm all for it.


The bar is set soooo high with TNG, the expectations of fans really cannot be overstated. A blank-canvas show like ::snaps fingers:: -- what's it called, Discovery? -- could redraw Trek in whatever image, but a Picard-led show has to fit within some established canon.


Kinda curious about the format: Will this be "Just Picard: A One Man Show," or will some other former cast members be a part of a regular crew?


The "easy" way out of this is to do an Enterprise-E show -- that much is certain. I would not be against that in any form, even though it's the easy way out. That would be hard for the studio to whiff or wreck outright due to a show being staffed with (for instance) Star Wars people or comic book film adapters who saw like 3 TNG episodes, tops. And that route works with Stewart's age. That's kind of a fixed factor here -- I think such a show would have to be set after Nemesis, arguably. To his credit, Stewart has not aged that much.

In the past couple of years on eBay 100 accessories = $15. So there's that. I'd encourage you to sell them, as people do buy them in bulk.

Tapestry Picard, MIB, went for $155.50 + $7.60 shipping after 3 bids. Package condition appears to be 9.5/10. Foot number not listed.


The low end of the price spectrum, very well bought. I would have bought it myself at this price. Especially considering what another just went for, in the post above.

USS Voyager, MIB, recently went for $135.50 + $17.30 shipping after 26 bids on eBay. Piece number #030720. Box pretty close to "emaculent" as they say on Craigslist.


Solid amount of dough, as usual. These have always been in demand despite solid numbers produced -- they just don't go for less than $100 in box. Market priced.
