Title: Star Trek: Picard
Post by: Surin Blastanos on April 27, 2020, 07:00:43 pm
Has anyone watched through the first season of Picard? If so, what are your thoughts?

I want to, but haven't gotten the chance to yet. Sadness. Best Star Trek Captain ever though.

Thought it was very well done.  Always felt like something new but respectfully done.  My only tiny gripe was with the copy and paste cgi fleet at the end- this wouldve been much better :-)

SLIGHT SPOILER: I did love that the romulans have at least 5 planetary sterilisation patterns, which seems like overkill.

Just finished the season Saturday night. Well worth watching!

I thought it was good! Some pacing issues, and I have my fair share of gripes (especially regarding the handling of returning characters that weren't part of a main cast, but I won't get into that), but it's still a good show with heart and I think it's worth checking out.

That's fair, there were definite problems with pacing, especially early on. I enjoyed the Deep Space Nine-esqe theme of the Federation not always being the good guys, but it didn't really go anywhere later on. I do think the ending sets up some good morality questions for the next season.

It is "Included with Prime", so you could start a free month's trial and watch it, and then cancel the subscription.

@Surin Blastanos  Thanks for the information, but I think I will find an alternative solution of the pirate streaming type.   :rotfl2:  :rotfl2:

My wife and I loved it.  It was great how the music picked up where Nemesis left off, and the first scene picked up where the final scene of TNG left off.  Also, the fact that Picard had a flute theme was really appropriate per TNG.  I'm also super nerdy about the Star Trek uniforms, and these were pretty good.
I kinda wonder where they go next season.  They have that big empty ship and a full crew, and they're not part of the federation.  It seems like it could wind up being a Firefly-type scenario.

Yeah, I can't wait to see what they do next season. LeVar Burton hinted that he might be in the next season, so fingers crossed.

I didn't even think of the flute theme, that's brilliant!

The federation starting to realise that they need to change some of their attitudes. Picard possibly becoming a federation ambassador to the androids.

Don’t worry Matt it’ll see us through at least one lockdown of 2022, possibly from the omega variant by then. Send to starfleet HQ Admiral Janeways office, implement the omega directive immediately, signed captain F Chips, USS Dumfuckery

Yeah I used to love them but they’ve gotten to the stage where time travel is used to rewrite canon or introduce new timelines so they can create more stories in established trek time periods and recast old favourite characters in the hope old fans won’t mind as it’s an alternate reality. This one looks like another Q thing which are never known to cause permanent changes but instead create interesting and infuriating challenges for Picard to get pissed off over.

Definitely excited. Time travel to the date of production has been used to great effect in The Voyage Home (TOS movie), Past Tense (DS9) or Future's End (VOY), and all of those were great.

Yeah those were good episodes although Past Tense was set in 21st century not 1990s. We’re approaching that time period and awaiting these Sanctuary Districts to be formed. Fortunately we’ve avoided the Eugenics wars of the late 20th century 😂

Funny how in 2005 Star Trek was cancelled due to franchise fatigue after five shows spanning almost 40 years but suddenly it’s perfectly ok to have 5 churned out at the same time.

Anything that makes money for the streaming platforms. But hey, as long as they keep being the quality they've released so far, I'm not complaining

I hope so but I hoped the first season would be good and I was left disappointed.
