    I'm watching Picard right now. I have some issues with it
    (Data shouldn't die, Starfleet shouldn't be corruptible)
    .

    But it's actually pretty good all in all. What do you all think?

    Enjoying it. The only thing that lets it down is Patrick Stewart, he is too old to play the role. It really saddens me.

    Thoroughly enjoying it all the same and it has some cool characters and always nice to see the old faces.

    Oh I think he's doing alright for a 200 year old? ;)

    The technology bothers me slightly. But at least they have good excuses, it's the future, and most ships shown are not Star Fleet.

    I'm huge Star Trek fan, especially TNG and DS9. I have seen so far three episodes of Picard and I like it, we will se if it is better than Discovery, but I'm just happy that we can finally see something from 24th century, since all movies and Star Trek series for last 18 years were from 23th century.

    Did you ever play Destiny?

    The ship they are flying around in reminds me of a few ships I had in Destiny ;)

    Actually, the only issue I have with it is that they are releasing episodes weekly and I would much prefer to binge it since I have some time off right now :anyway:

    1. If Data did not die you would have no Series to watch.
    2. Starfleet is not corrupted - its infiltrated. There is a difference.

    Loving the series so far.. we`ll see where it will end up..

    Well, it is on CBS All Access. They get more money with weekly shows. I just wait until after the show airs and stream it without the commercials.

    I had to buy Prime video, and it took me until a few days ago to get that crap working, so I'm binging

    That's what makes it good.

    It's suppose to be an older, more vulnerable Picard.

    Well you're not wrong. On both accounts. But letting infiltration happen is as bad as letting corruption happen. Tomato tomato lol. I mean it shouldn't be possible in the first place.

    Coincidentally that's what real world politicians are saying lol

    shouldnt wouldnt couldnt. that being said, Picard was a great intro to the Star Trek world for my SO. After watching a few episodes, it was a breeze to convince her to watch TNG to keep her up to date with what happened in Picard.

    Star fleet has been infiltrated before... remember those bug things that inbedded in the brains of star fleet and caused them to eat worms?
