    I am extremely skeptical about this one. Although, if it's anywhere close to the production value of Star Trek Discovery I will be on board. I just wonder how an old Picard running around having adventures is going to work out.

    Michael Chabon Named Showrunner For 'Star Trek: Picard'

    https://www.startrek.com/news/michael-chabon-named-showrunner-star-trek-picard


    Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon has been named Showrunner of the upcoming Star Trek: Picard series. Chabon is working closely on the day-to-day production of the series with Academy Award winner and veteran Star Trek writer and producer Akiva Goldsman, and Alex Kurtzman, who continues to oversee the expansion of the growing Star Trek universe for CBS Studios.

    “Daring, lyrical, humane, whimsical, celebrated: words that describe both Jean-Luc Picard and the literary genius of Michael Chabon,” said Alex Kurtzman. “Despite a laundry list of accomplishments most writers only dream of, Michael shines with the heart and soul of a Trekkie who’s finally found his dream job. We’re so fortunate to have him at the helm as we explore this next chapter in the great captain’s life.”

    Jean-Luc can zip around in the ST version of a "Lil' Rascal" like Captain Pike:

    7 of 9 is in this? :clapping:

    As much as I want to flip off CBS, they might just have me for a trial month at least. I watched the first season of Discovery on Blu-ray but I could at least combine Discovery season 2 and this for my trial month.
