Star Trek: Picard
« on: May 23, 2019, 10:22:26 PM »
Star Trek...still going.

Sir Patrick Stewart has returned as his beloved character Jean-Luc Picard in the upcoming TV series, "Star Trek: Picard."

Stewart played Picard for seven seasons on “Star Trek: The Next Generation" and the new CBS All Access series will "follow this iconic character into the next chapter of his life" according to the network.

The series takes place 18 years after the events of "Star Trek: Nemesis."

The series has yet to announce a premiere date.

What's scary is that Star Trek: Nemesis really was almost 18 years ago!

Also scary: how absolutely disinterested Picard (or PatStew?) looks in doing this, at the end of the commercial.  ::)

Some new factoids to keep up interest.

“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"When all other trusts fail, turn to Flashman." — Abraham Lincoln.

"I have enjoyed very warm relations with my two husbands."
"With your eyes closed?"
"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

I will certainly give it a shot. TOS and TNG have always been my favorites among the series.

Who's the dog? Is that Ryker's Spirit Animal? No, can't be or he'd be humping Picard's leg.  :2funny:

Based on the shot at 1:02 and 1:44 that Borg cube is under Romulan control.

Did Picard ever get married and have kids or anything? The world needs more Picards.

Only in alternate continuities, like inside the Nexus during the TOS/TNG movie Star Trek Generations.
