Star Trek: Picard (CBS All Access)

I figure most of the older characters with the exception of one or two, are no longer part of star fleet and have retired or been forced to retire because of old age.   It's a good way to bring in newer characters because the old ones are, in fact, too old now, haha.   I expect a good bit of cameos from more TNG people.

Personally I'd much rather see DS9 and Voyager cameos since we're never going to get continuations of those shows. (Other than Star Trek Online or comics etc)

 

How awesome would it be to expect Q to show up (which rumors are swirling that he will, because of a red glove in a production shot...) but in fact Benjamin Sisko shows up instead. I'd melt into a puddle of Trekgoo if that happened. But it won't :(

I think I literally had a Trekgasm over that trailer. I can'ttttttttttt wait.

I don't know. I think the whole "she doesn't know who she is and what she is capable of" has a big J.J. Abrams feeling to it. This said he's not behind the project so i'll give it a try. I think they did a great job bringing the old cast without trying to pretend they are still young. Also the actor playing data looks in great shape. His cheeks are a little loose but it look like it will be good enough to work despite his age.

You never know who will show up IMO, it could be fully of cameos from every trek from TNG to Voyager.  Hell isn't Jainway sp? suppose to be a admiral still around this time?

Either they're going to ignore the last movie or more of Data was transferred to B-4 than they thought and he took over it.

Probably the later. Data is a robot. The body is not important the "data" is ;)

Yes, Janeway was an admiral in Nemesis.  So she could either still be an active admiral or since it is about 20 years later, she could be retired at this point.

Right, so it comes down to who wanted to do a cameo and who didn't really.

Well, Michael Dorn was on set at one point (he signed one of those clapboard things for someone apparently), but they swear blind he was NOT there as cast, just visiting.

 

Seems suspicious to me...

I believe we will see characters from the next generation as guests. All of them will show up at some point. I also believe there will be some kind of time travel connection to Discovery at some point in the future. It’s gonna be an interesting series to watch.

The actor’s name is Brent Spinner. He was the original DATA on the series. Years ago he had expressed that he no longer wanted to portray DATA because androids do not age and he was aging and it was showing and there is so much makeup can hide. Of course back then there was no real CGI technology to de-age people like we have today so I am assuming that now that we have such technology available, he has changed him mind because we can now make him look just like he did 25 years ago through CGI and he can perform his role without issues.

The actor's name is Brent Spiner, with a single N in the surname.

I sort of wished for the reverse in that they developed as skin for Data that actually “aged” being he was always on a quest to be more “human”.

You are excused.  It doesn't take a professor to get a name right when you're talking about a specific person. :)

Q has to show up. If you remember on the very last episode of TNG, he told Picard: “See you out there.”

 

We never saw him again so this is the perfect time for him to come back. Check it out. This is what I am referring to:

If he comes back, he's going to need even more CGI work than Spiner...

It could just be a different Q, or Q could just change his look.  I don't think anything in the canon says he/they can't.

Q changes his look a lot during the TNG series.  So I am sure they could explain why he looks old.  Maybe adapt/blend in with the humans.  Same can be said with Data.

 

Glad to see Data coming back.  Hopefully they close the story and explains what happens to him after Nemesis.

Interesting point... Q's son in Voyager (from baby to adolescent) definitely aged in terms of how appeared to the crew.

Aside from Data being dead?  Based on the trailers, I only seen Data in the vineyard with Picard.  Picard is wearing a Starfleet uniform; so that's obviously a dream sequence.  The other time Data (or B4) is shown as being dismantled in a drawer.  I thought I remembered another scene, can't find the trailer where Picard and Data are talking but it didn't look like they were in a setting like a house, ship or elsewhere.  More like talking to an "imaginary friend" type conversation.

 

I'm all for Data's return from the dead, I just don't see it.

 

Can't wait to watch it tonight :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.
