Turns out Discovery has not wrapped filming S4 yet, or maybe just has. And as mentioned, it won't be released till early 2024.

The list I had provided earlier was based on an unofficial expected release sequence I'd seen for this year, which turned out to be totally wrong. I'm not going to assume SNW will come right after Picard. With Discovery not till next year, there's only 3 shows, likely 30 episodes total, for the rest of the year, so they may not run those end-to-end as they mostly did last year. Or... maybe they will.

I'll miss Discovery. The anti-Discovery whiners can keep on whining and CHEERING about Star Trek getting smaller, losing the flagship show that started the "new generation" of shows (No SNW without S2 of Discovery. No Picard. Probably no Lower Decks or Prodigy either.).

Paramount+ is shrinking their budget for streaming shows, so this does NOT bode well long-term for all of Star Trek. Might be down to one show in 2-3 years. Maybe even Strange New Worlds won't get a 5 year mission, which would be such a shame. SNW has not hit anything like "The Mandalorean"has. No dolls or other Paramount+ Star Trek on store shelves.

Others can go eventually re-live no trek on TV at all like 2005-2017. Wasn't THAT fun?

This update, back to Picard, from the showrunner Matalas. I will not speculate at all about who the others might be, but I'd bet real money on one that comes to mind.

Well, as Dr. Evil would do, dress Jean Luc and Beverly up in exotic futuristic outfits and give them time alone to escape from an overly elaborate situation of certain death. Guess there is an episode five. They did it again with many call backs and fan service but it is entertaining. The Shrike is still out there, a real butcher bird waiting to strike again!

Well, in episode 4, Jonathan Frakes once again does a great job of directing Jonathan Frakes. :) And everyone else too.

"Commander Seven" (again)

And a variation of the "Captain Taggart Maneuver" near the end, loved it. I wonder what % of that was knowingly inspired by that maneuver, and what % was totally coincidental. For those who don't get that, and have seen the episode, your one clue is not to waste time googling for Star Trek sites and Trek wikis.

The latest Ready Room. Featuring:
Interview with Todd Stashwick ("Captain NO!". Uh, captain Shaw).
History of Changelings. Science behind the science of Star Trek.

So, episode 5 is out. 5 more left.

Title is "Imposters". Don't blame me, they came up with that name.

Well, a LOT of information of what's been going on, and action.

And as the showrunner hinted at, yep, someone from TNG's past, and QUITE a plot twist.

Also, quite a chain of events for Worf and Raffi.

And hey, Worf gets a personal face to face call from his handler.

Ep.4:
Memorable line: "Bob is your uncle, Fanny is your aunt".
Cracked me up even though I don't know what it means.
From context I'm guessing something like "Lo and behold".
Maybe British?
Ep. 5*SPOILER ALERT*
Whoa! Or is it Ro!
See my post #108
Best episode of the season so far.
A couple of tearjerker moments.
The two arcs have merged into one.
What's wrong with Jack?
Have to wait another week.
Dang.
PS and Rikers' manuever is going to go down as legendary in Starfleet history. Like Kirk's Corbomite Maneuver. Heh.

Heh.
Yes, it’s a British idiom - with a surprisingly obscure origin - that translates to roughly “there you have it” or, as we’d say in fractured French “voilà!”.

Hopefully this isn’t too spoilery but there’s already been chatter that the Riker Maneuver is a bit of a tribute to Galaxy Quest 😉
