    I see the hacks behind the atrocious 'Star Trek: Discovery' are involved in Picard's return. How disappointing. Love TNG so I eagerly await the crushing disappointment :D

    Amazing news. TNG was mostly superb. Can’t wait.
    He is 78 though, so not sure what kind of role this will be.

    :clap:

    I knew there were rumours about him perhaps being involved with Trek again but thought maybe an appearance on Discovery never imagined he would be back on a brand new show and especially one set 20 years after Nemesis.

    Perhaps we might get to see the Enterprise-F :D

    I doubt he's the lead. It'll likely be a new character; something stunningly unoriginal as a long lost or estranged daughter, that ropes him into a convoluted plot to save the Federation. Nailed on they kill him off at the end too. Exactly what you'd expect from a mediocrity like Kurtzman.

    I'd quite like a mini series following a retired Picard on his farm in France. A few old faces show up at some point. No real plot. Would make for delightful viewing.

    Now all we need is announcements that there will be a new Buffy series including some of the original cast and a new Veronica Mars series and I can just die happy!

    You clearly aren’t a fan of Discovery then.

    You could say that.

    However, I don't wish to dampen the enthusiasm of other forum members so I'll refrain from commenting further until I've seen the final product. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised :smashin:

    Actually I just recently finished all the ST series upto and including Enterprise and with only a few left to the complete last season I found TNG had a far greater ratio to poor episodes to good ones than the others and often came out with techno mumbo jumbo to solve problems. I previously though DS9 was the weak one of the franchise but it ratio was way higher and the last season more or less every episode was a good one.
    Although have to say Patrick was brilliant.

    I often re-watch The Next Generstion as it has so much re-watch-ability imo.

    Brilliant cast with the best Star Trek captain of them all ... & just loved the Q episodes with the Picard & Q dialogue.

    Really great news :thumbsup:

    I hope it continues the Star Trek history of posing difficult questions now and then.
    In the late sixties they got a lot past the censors who wouldn't allow topics like race to be discussed.

    Yeah, DS9 has aged better than TNG and Voyager (haven't seen Enterprise so can't compare) and has the best characters of all the Trek shows. Down to a number of factors like Ronald D. Moore writing for the show, Rodenberry passing away so less meddling with the stories and characters, and a fresh premise for the Trek universe.

    Recently rewatched DS9 after about 12 years since last watching it and it delivered just as much fun and excitement as it did all those years ago.

    It's worth remembering that TNG was a restart so they had to re establish the franchise.

    I loved TNG at the time, as a late teen/twentysomething, but really can't get on with a lot of it these days, 40:60 wheat to chaff ratio imo, the poor acting of the token women, and how it comes across as even more dated than TOS. All the films, apart from First Contact, are just extended rubbish TV episodes, especially Nemesis. Voyager continued with the same sh*t. DS9 and Enterprise's final season were the best Treks of that era.

    Anyway looking forward to what the brilliant Discovery team will do with the 24th century.

    It's worth bearing in mind that TNG came into play as PC hysteria was rampant and was clearly designed to suit that crowd of cronies at the top.
    It remains my favourite in mind with Stewart but I have to say, I can't quite bring myself to watch the show again even though I own the damned thing. First Contact, however, has been re watched multiple times. Oh, and the really enjoyable Safe House here available on DVD.
    At 78 it is an obvious question of his longevity and how fast track they can go with it. I'm assuming the special effects aren't going to be too taxing to speed things and it'll be much more drama oriented - as spry as he is.

    Although the only stuff really down to the TV execs idea of PC was "where no one has gone before" and the ship's counsellor on the bridge, which was that late 80s indulgent soul baring we also had with the yuppies on Thirtysomething.

    Hmm. I think Sirtis would be choking on her tea...only! There were many stories that reeked of PC-ness than just Roddenberry's 'vision which ran into the 90s..
    Thank God for university

    At first I thought the poorest of the lot with it being stationary in space but watching them one a day they just seemed slot together better, TNG seemed to have a lot of fill in stories. I think Enterprise fill in stories were just as good and the 3 season ark was one of the best and the 4th season had some really good 2 part episode.
    As been said TNG hasn't aged well but was good in its day.

    And she's a Spurs fan too!:eek:

    Patrick's in very good shape for his age and he'll nail the character at this stage of his life, so everything will depend on the writing and the cast around him.

    Just to backtrack a bit: I take on board Krish's comment about the female crew on TNG, but don't agree that it was "token" nor that their acting was "poor".

    Nichelle Nichols was literally given nothing to say or do, it was all about the (male) trinity of Kirk, Spock and Bones. Compared to this, Gates and Marina were Oscar-worthy performers!

    Also, actors can only perform with what they're given: Gates was tremendous in leading "Remember Me" and Marina showed her talent in the episode where she was in charge of the Enterprise (can't remember the title), she just needed to get out of the bunny suit!

    Finally, their casting inevitably led to Dax and Kira, two strong and resourceful characters, and best of all, Janeway. They were part of a lineage that inspired the characters that followed them, so they laid down important groundwork during their tenure.

    Yeah, she went for an Eastern Europeanish (Russian Federation?) type accent and then mum pops up and it's the none geographic posh feel. All a bit weird.
    Both Gates and Marina looked like they were going to pop outfits in the episode in which they were exercising on the floor together - very Jane Fonda-esque. And no wonder the men kept pulling on their uniform in the early seasons, as Stewart notes they were rather clingy in the rising nether regions.
    Marina was good in the Romulan swap episodes too.
    Of course they've gone in the opposite direction now with woman power and gender swaps which, I feel, is a step too far with some characters. Why they can't just write fresh strong characters instead of tinkering is beyond me. At least they confirmed that Spock will be male in the new stuff.

    Very true ... I was a bit harsh, they were mostly given the poorest lines. Always felt Crusher never reached her potential, with more twee nonsense than medical brilliance, and Gates wasn't treated well early on of course, being let go from the show.
