Remember they teased us, Data gave his life for Picard. Guess I'll never know.
Never understood the need to take a well done original and redo it American style. For example, Life on Mars was a British classic; I only got two episodes into the American version before I deleted it from my server. Same for Being Human.Ugh, now I hear they are trying to buy Red Dwarf rights and give that to Kurtzman to ruin. It is to be an all female reboot like Ghostbusters 2016. The past Red Dwarf pilot for American television was bad enough. Just think what 15 or so American Woke producers will do to Red Dwarf! After Dr. Who it will be sad to see another British classic flushed down the toilet.
The rumor that I have heard is that there was a tremendous amount of production and budget issues, leading to two dozen producers, multiple writing teams, agendas, corporate mandates and scheduling/contract issues with Sir Patrick. A real nightmare leading to short cuts and inconsistency. Just go with the flow. Enjoy all the season three member berries. Hopefully they can pull in some old dude subscribers who actually pay for their subscription!If I can soak up a tenth of your oddroc knowledge through osmosis I'll be the better for it.
Nothing wrong with divergent opinions.
As long as people on both sides have an open mind for discussion.
As for Picard...........
End of season one, he gets a new synthetic body without the problem in the parietal lobe.
But he is not immortal, he can expect a "normal" life span.
But he is already 90 some odd years old.
So what's the point?
This is *exactly* why the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy is also so terrible.What I object to with Picard is that it feels like fan-fiction written by committee. It's like Next Gen's greatest hits rolled up into one season... Q, the borg, time travel, yadda yadda, is there anything they didn't use as a hook? The only thing they didn't use was Wesley.. oh wait, scratch that, they did.
So far, the only Disney Star Wars movie I liked was Rogue One, and that's because everybody died, and they had to, to retain continuity, but it was brilliant. And what astounds me is that there's clearly some talent there -- the Mandalorian TV series is proof of that, and yet, they are making such dull, un-inspired junk because that's what they think sells.This is *exactly* why the Disney Star Wars sequel trilogy is also so terrible.
Well said, sir. Also agreed that Rogue One was pretty good. Star Wars Rebels was also decent, though it took a little time to really find its feet, and the final arc of the The Clone Wars: The Final Season was also pretty darn great.So far, the only Disney Star Wars movie I liked was Rouge One, and that's because everybody died, and they had to, to retain continuity, but it was brilliant.

TOS was not woke, woke did not exist then except as a tiny twisted dream in certain minds. TOS while it showed a bright inclusive future was not pushing an agenda. Woke is pushing a ludacris and deviant agenda to destroy society.Without debating the general validity of such an accusation, I must point out that it is especially strange to aim it at a Star Trek series. Being "Woke" has been a fundamental part of Star Trek since TOS.
"Woke", in the sense you are using, is actually a made-up term to describe *anything* the far right doesn't like, the same way they now use the words communist and socialist synonymously, even though the two words in reality describe vastly different ideologies.Woke is pushing a ludacris and deviant agenda to destroy society.
