It said he left as an Admiral.   Didn't listen to Kirk yo, never let them promote you.

Really? I thought it said quite a lot.  I guess you'd have to be a TNG fan to get all the subtext. :p

Loved that trailer. Can't wait!! Loved seeing the winery we saw in Family. Looks like he didn't listen to Kirk either. Excited to see what happens with him and Romulus' destruction.

Sorry, can't resist this; We will sell no wine before its time.

 

It sounds very promising and what is the "darkness" and what unimaginable happened?  Because whatever it was, seemed to have caused him to retire and head back to the vineyards.

 

Could it be the final destruction of the Borg?  There was a storyline in the paperback call Destiny which leads up to their destruction once an for all.

Rumor has it the destruction of Romulus affected him deeply.

That sort of rubs me the wrong way and doesn't fit Picard's character, but that's just me.  If true, it lends to this series to be about "therapy" for him and dealing with the destruction of Romulus which might get drawn out longer than it should.

 

Don't get me wrong, I welcome the series and hope it more than what the rumor says the series is about.

I agree, the only thing I can think of is it has something to do with him being so invested with reunification, sarek/spock, etc..

It's clear that Picard led the Federation evacuation of Romulus as that fits the known timeline and he has a vested interest in the place as well.  I suspect the traumatic event might have something to do with Spock disappearing into the past, perhaps there's a vestige of the mind meld they shared still active and he somehow senses the end of Vulcan in the other timeline, but I wonder if it's more likely going to be something closer to home, and that means the Enterprise and her crew...  Perhaps something happens and he loses ALL of them, which would explain why we won't see them cropping up in the new show.

 

Whatever it is, it's clear that Starfleet are asking him back, hence the obvious interview background of the trailer.

 

More and more I feel that the new show will either be diplomacy based and we'll see him in a new ship, or it has something to do with the academy.

I just hope it isn't as extreme as Discovery. That show just took the whole star trek formula and made it too extreme. They did stuff in that show that none of the other captains would have done. Even Janeway's screw ups were never this bad.

If they do to Picard what they did in Discovery, I don't think anything will save them from the fans wrath.

Hopefully it'll not be going on about not having a family or his brother 'Ro-bear' (#thundercats)

 

Let's hope they'll be some adventure and some old cast turn up.  Maybe Q would spice things up by turning his wine into youth juice and he takes command of some trusty rustbucket against an unknown evil and dish it hardcore baritone Shakespearean beatings.

It's going to be 10 episodes, don't know if that was stated yet or if everyone knew it.  Also Stewart has input on where the character and the story is going to go, so I wouldn't expect any massive changes, we'll probably dive into him on a more personal level compared to TNG, but I'm fine with that.

He experienced it in an alternate future, but in the present timeline was confirmed to have genetic factors that preconditioned him to it.

Not sure what to think here.. if they have some action involved I'm all for it.

A doc about him and just him now with some backwards reflections I don't see taking off much.

How about a show all about him fighting with his brother about the vineyard and family wine business 😆

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falcon_Crest

 

"Following the relaunch of Dallas in 2012, it was reported that stars of Falcon Crest had been approached about appearing in a revival of their show. It was proposed that the series would focus on Cole Gioberti (William Moses) and Richard Channing (David Selby),[9] however the proposed revival never went into production."

 

Falcon Crest - The Gioberti Family's European Invasion:

 

Picard battles the evil forces of the California Wine Valley during the day, while composing "The New Shakespeare Extensions" at night working with the A.I. from the Enterprise Core which is buried under his farm. Eventually the silo beside his barn turns out to be a new spaceship/timeship design incorporating a Mind Meld of Brexit T.A.R.D.I.S. Technology combined with Crusher Nanotech Warp Engines (that eat mushrooms), which he launches to the exact coordinates in Time-Space-Dimension-Reality to warn Vulcan early enough to prevent the insanely stupid reboot caused by the ferociously virulent Environmental Fungus known as the "J.J. Abrams Hack Virus" (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._J._Abrams)

God damn, I loved Falcon Crest when I was a kid! Dunno why that was brought into the thread, other than wine being involved? :D

      CBS All Access is becoming Paramount+ on March 4, coming to more markets
      by João Carrasqueira

      ViacomCBS today announced the launch date for its rebranded streaming service, Paramount+, which is basically just a new name for CBS All Access. The rebranding strategy was announced last year, and it aims to bring the company's content under a more recognizable brand, especially around the world, since the service is also expanding to more countries.

      In addition to changing names in the U.S. and Canada on March 4, Paramount+ will launch in Latin America on the same day. The service will also come to the Nordics on March 25 and to Australia in mid-2021. Canada's offering will also be expanded in some way later in the year, though the company didn't provide any more details on that front.

      In addition to the content already available on CBS All Access, ViacomCBS also announced last year that more original content was in the works for the relaunched service. This includes The Real Criminal Minds, a docuseries inspired by CBS' Criminal Minds TV show, and Kamp Koral, a new series by the creator of Spongebob Squarepants, aimed at children.

      Competition in the streaming space is fierce, with new services popping up around every corner, so using a more recognizable brand makes sense. Paramount+ also follows the template of other streaming services such as Disney+, discovery+, and Apple TV+.

      Star Trek: Voyager receives a 4K remaster courtesy of an AI-based software
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via Imgur Originally released in 1995, Star Trek: Voyager, has now received a third-party 4K remaster. A Redditer (u/theboomsterz) who goes by the name of Billy Richard on YouTube has used a video AI program from Topaz Labs to remaster five episodes of the show thus far. Here's a short clip of the resultant video taken from the Season 6, Episode 4, Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy.

      The video was remastered to 4K from a DVD source using Gigapixel AI from Topaz Labs, and the episode above had three complete runs with the software. It is a time-consuming and expensive process, with Richard claiming that it took him around six hours to process the work from start to finish.

      As stated before, five episodes have been remastered as of now, but only short clips have been uploaded for viewership on YouTube. But Richard intends on saving up for upgrading from his current trial version of Gigapixel and subsequently making more episodes in the future. While the link to download or view full episodes has not been given, nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how CBS and Paramount respond to this.

      According to Variety, four new Trek series are actively in development at the network, presumably as programming for CBS All Access, the streaming-only service that premiered Star Trek Discovery in late 2017.

      NeoBytes :) The Discovery on Star Trek apparently runs Windows
      by Muhammad Jarir Kanji

      NeoBytes :) is an occasional feature that takes a step back from the big headlines, to take a look at what else is happening in the vast, scary expanse of the tech world - often with a cynical eye, always with a dose of humour.

      Image credit: CBS If CBS is to be believed, Microsoft's Windows platform has a long, long, long future ahead of it. The third, and latest, episode of the new Star Trek: Discovery series currently airing on the network has Windows-related code running on the Starfleet ship. Discovery's timeline places it around the year 2255, meaning Windows will be around two centuries into the future.

      The episode in question has main character Micheal Burnham analysing a string of code which, alongside being central to the plot of the episode, turns out to be Windows code. As spotted by some hawk-eyed Twitter users, the string is decompiled code from the Stuxnet virus used to target Iran's nuclear capabilities.

      Since Stuxnet's mode of operation was written for the Windows operating system, it would seem Windows will continue to be the platform of choice for the enterprise - ahem, Enterprise - well into the future.

      Star Trek: Discovery is already one of the most pirated series currently airing and we can only expect that number to rise given the show's inexplicable ability to predict the future. A bunch of Apple and Google execs are probably huddled around a conference table somewhere poring over every detail of the show to figure out how their rival beat them so long into the future. I think it's because the Surface Phone is actually a rebranded Zune that links with your HoloLens to hypnotise users into loving everything Microsoft. That's how Microsoft will take over the world.
