CAPT Y'Wanna, have you watched the Picard panel from Comic Con? Brent Spiner got a big laugh, esp. from Patrick Stewart, when he said "When I first heard about this new Star Trek Picard, I called the producers and asked do you have anyone for the role of Picard yet?"
I must confess I have mixed feelings about this. When they said it's not going to be like TNG, I got scared. But then they said it's not going to be like Disco either....I really hope it's good.
Me too! (To everything you said.)
I think I'll wait until a few episodes have aired and then sign up for the All Access free trial. I'll binge watch them and then decide if I want to subscribe to watch the rest of the series.
I'm tentatively planning on going to the 2020 Star Trek Las Vegas convention. The Picard series will probably be featured prominently since that's where Patrick Stewart first announced it at the 2018 convention.

And so it begins....I watched the first episode on Friday on Amazon Prime. Things that I liked: -Picard. Well, he's the same old Picard I used to know and appreciate over the years- still sticking to his system of values synd still in conflict with a Starfleet that had abandoned those values. -Seeing Data again - The script is good, so far. No idiotic lines we used to see in the new movies or STD. -the pace: though there's enough action, it doesn't happen as fast as to find it difficult to follow or to give you the feeling that it's tiring to watch. - a sense of mystery that invites you to gradually uncover it - Dahj- who isn't who you might think from the trailer - still issues important matters such as artificial intelligence and it's role in society ( Measure of a man is a must see episode) -' Tea. Earl Grey. Decaf.' - No. 1
Things I didn't like:- The Romulans- they are simply to human for my taste, even though that's somewhat subtly explained by events happening during the 20years we missed. However, I'm not buying that. Thanks Heavens is not nearly as bad as 'Nero'. - Picard gives an interview for a TV channel- that's unacceptable, since the TNG staff said that humanity had given up to this " form of entertainment' long time ago. Of course, what Picard said was extremely important, but they should have made it differently. The side streets of a city( where Dahj runs and hides) look very much like present.... - I think Seven of Nine should have been a regular, not a guest. From what I've seen so far,she could have fit in the show... - While I like No.1, I still miss Livingston.
All in all, I had the feeling I was watching real ST again. I like it so far. Anyone else?

We've had three episodes now and I'm still enjoying this show! The producers have referred to the the first three episodes as the series "pilot". That seems about right to me. At the end of the third episode we have a ship, we have a crew, and Picard says "Engage!".
BTW I'm also enjoying The Ready Room, the Star Trek: Picard episode discussion show on CBS All Access hosted by Wil Wheaton.
