    Surely everyone interested in this show already saw the trailer, but as I do not see a thread about it, here it is:



    I for one am really looking forward to it. I was already looking forward to it even when the only thing I had seen was a poster of Picard and his dog. But this trailer looks like it will prove good Star Trek can be made, after the dumpster fire that was Discovery - though, to be fair, season 2 was better ... only because it made me really want to see a series following the adventures of Christopher Pike on the Enterprise (with of course Anson Mount reprising his role, as well as Rebecca Romijn as Number 1 :D ).

    Sorry if the trailer is from a Canadian station, for some reason I can't find an "official" version.

    Picard is looking really old. Shouldn't he be retired now? ;) Discovery? I’ll take that any day over Voyager or Enterprise.

    I just want you to know that any e-bond we've built over the years has gone down the toilet after reading this.

    He IS retired.

    Your opinions on Star Trek will now be completely disregarded :p

    I'm so excited. Never thought I'd be subscribing to CBS All Access.

    Looking forward to this, too.

    For the record, I love all the Star Trek's. The only thing I probably really don't care for is the intro music to ENT.

    Somebody lacks faith of the heart.

    Or if you’re Chief O’Brien, faith of the dærts.

    ...I’ll see myself out :oops:

    Jean-Luc won't be born for another 280 years (July 13, 2305).;) He's already retired by 2019?:confused: Man, they've have over used time travel in Star Trek.:p:p:p I've been waiting for this ever since I read The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard last year.

    Always thought Picard was the best. Would love to see an appearance by Q and Wesley in the new series.

    Likewise, with the exceptions of Enterprise (which I disliked) and Discovery (which I have never seen).

    But, Picard sounds as though it could be genuinely worth watching, and I must say that I am looking forward to it.

    I’m sad. :)

    It’s too late, might as well let it all hang out now. ;)

    After STNG, I’ve expected continued cutting edge, but got repeat story lines early on out of Voyager, and with Enterorise, let’s go down to the planet and help them repair their shed. Its one redeeming feature was the post- away team in their undies rub, featuring T’pol. :D

    I’m going to guess you wouldn’t like Discovery. I thought Season 1 was stellar and recently posted a critique in the Discovery thread about Season 2, a little too fast and furious with precarious situations through S2E5.

    I would like to see Ensign Ro Laren return. Assuming that's a path they take and Michelle Forbes can be convinced to do it.

    While I love Star Trek, I won’t be watching this. I’m not subscribing to another service in order to watch it.

    While I won't be subscribing... at least right now anyway, just to hear him say "Engage" was worth it to me. Sooooo close to getting this.

    He does look old though, but I mean the guy is in his late 70's early 80's...

    Edit: He is 79!!! Good for him!

    It's a real shame that it's locked behind the CBS all access service in the US.

    In the rest of the world, it's going to be available on (I believe) Amazon Prime Video, while in Canada it will be on the Space channel, as well as available for Crave TV subscribers (which is the service that grants us access to HBO in Canada).

    The series will probably be more popular in the world than in the US. They really should consider partnerships with other services :/

    Yes, Ro Laren (if memory serves, a lieutenant j.g. and advanced tactical specialist by the time she quit the Enterprise) was a terrific character.

    I tried swapping it out with a piece from an OST I really like a while ago:

    Same here. I'll wait for the BD/DVD release and buy them.

    I did subscribe to CBSAA for season 1 of DISCO, but then canceled it. DISCO season 1 is available on BD and I'll buy it when season 2 is released. Hopefully the same will be true of Picard at some point.

    Not much better in my opinion.

    Yes, much though I am looking forward to this, I'll wait also for the DVD to be released.

    I like that better than what it really is.

    Agreed. My eyes were opened as I watched Discovery on Netflix while in France. I realize this is the future, as commercialized TV recedes and subscription based content expands.

    Hmm, do you have a specific genre or song in mind you think would suit it better? :)

    I have no musical talent, so I haven’t a clue how to improve it.

    Blasphemy. You lack faith.

    Faith of the heart.

    I’ve gotta stop saying that.
