 Hi Trekkers, Spacerguy here. Did you get to see Star Trek Picard on the Sci Fi channel? CBS, Netflix or Amazon Prime Video? cos like now you can buy it on dvd. Millions of Star Trek fans were thrilled when treks famous Captain Picard took the reigns once again to protect Starfleet and Federation trusting interplanetary citizens but it is different.... 

  I reckon trekker reactions to the cyborg killing spree on the red planet definitely left most of us stunned in our seats. lol  Theres lots of trekker wallowing on IMDB while conversely others just loved the show.  

S.T. Picard castmates in attendance with Patrick Stewart included Jeri Ryan, Johnathan Del Arco, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, and Evan Evagora at the London premiere

Mars as a fully operational base got me excited but then that sub-plot ended with a big flash and a bang. I mean talk about stealthy killer synths on Mars, but what was kinda missing was intelligent analytical science. Stuff like1g artificial gravity and robust shielding against dangerous radiation from space you know the stuff that kills you but hey these automatons were just sophisticated silent space monsters, right?.😄  

Then you've got the threat to the hero Sirena spaceship but hey just some fancy dorking around with a 3d computer display and all systems restored, no mention of gigawatt-class propulsion, anti matter engines or deuterium fuel running out. Looking back now, it occurs to me with several writers involved in creating this magnificent enterprise being geeky writers had to have read up on this from somewhere! Do you see what I'm getting at??


 Still, bringing in the classic TNG actors was a blinder with co-stars Michelle Hurd and IMDB filling in the gaps. So much was right about it despite encounters with traitorous Zhat Vash Federation spy Commodore O. That said the goal was simple and SirPat said this - we're not going to see the crew of the Enterprise again:D  sniff.😐


Star Trek Picard is a shake up and it challenges our moral trekkie core beliefs, but we've got to stop wallowing. This is the age of mobile phone instant gratification. I enjoyed Picards fascinating outlook on Star Trek empiricism. So its a little Star Warsy but brave of Patrick Stewart and co-stars to test trekkie waters but QUESTION: Will Tarantino changes like these pay off in the cinemas? 

Is Star Trek Picard all good?

Forget about Technobabble?

The Articles of Federation - for or against?

Do we need more killer cyborgs and Zhat Vash tricks of the mind in the show?
