@LN78 yeah you know that bit during the interview, they did a montage of some of Picard's accomplishments and one showed him and Worf in the Klingon council chambers

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

"Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!

@FullbringIchigo I thought it might have been one of the items in his storage locker thingy but that makes sense. They already did a good (ish) job of explaining the difference between TOS and Michael Westmore Klingons so it will probably be a throwaway line if it even gets mentioned at all.

@LN78 they probably won't say a word after all they threw the "Discoprise" in an episode and said nothing

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

@LN78 @RogerRoger i thought this might be interesting to you

it's official, new Trek series staring Pike

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

@FullbringIchigo Thanks for the tag; I'll show up for it, more out of morbid curiosity to begin with. Will probably end up enjoying it, though, because Anson Mount.

@RogerRoger he was the brightest spark in that entire season

@FullbringIchigo Wasn't he just? I can see why they've commissioned this series (I also liked Rebecca Romijn's take on Number One, although I can take or leave yet another Spock) so I hope they lean on those strengths. I'd quite like it to be episodic, none of this apocalyptic season arc nonsense; let's just fly around with them, getting into all sorts of trouble every week!

@RogerRoger yeah me too, it probably wont be episodic though because nearly everything on TV now a days has to be a serialised arc although they really should make it episodic because it would actually set it apart from most other modern sci-fi shows

So with the official announcement of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds obviously the Trek fandom is all talking about it (both good and bad of course) but at least it explains why he was included on this official poster (also The Animated Series is on it too about time it got recognised)

@FullbringIchigo It's extremely nerdy of me for my first thought to have been "Oh, cool, they're using the Enterprise-D from "These Are The Voyages" [ENT] in official artwork!" isn't it?

Also quite telling that we've got a bunch of series leads, then Spock (obviously, and a neat way to represent the animated series, as you say) but then also Worf (okay, he was in two shows, so that's kinda fair) and Deanna (er...?) which, not to downplay their importance, seems a bit random. Hinting at further cameo appearances in the next season of Picard, perhaps?

@RogerRoger i think it's more that Picard is representing Star Trek Picard because he is older and not in uniform so Worf and Troi are representing TNG in this case

it is also nice to see the Animated series finally being confirmed canon because this is a poster representing all of Trek Prime continuity

@FullbringIchigo True, good point... still, Deanna...? Although she was a not-insignificant part of Voyager, as well as in the aforementioned "These Are The Voyages", so I'm probably doing her a disservice. I love where her character ended up.

@RogerRoger could have done without the tragic backstory but yeah all in all it's nice the Riker's (or Troi's) were able to retire and live a happy life together

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

"Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!

RogerRoger

@FullbringIchigo Oh, sorry, my bad... wasn't even thinking of Picard there! I meant more that, somewhere around the Season Six mark in TNG, she was given a bit more of a personality. Deanna in the seventh season, the TNG movies and Voyager was what I was referring to; the fact she became this snarky badass after starting out in the early seasons as a wide-eyed bit of skirt.

Didn't like the tragic backstory for her appearance in Picard either, but I loved how she called Jean-Luc out for being a dispassionate, pompous ass. That's when I recognised her as Deanna again!

@RogerRoger yeah she definitely improved when as she said, they put her in a uniform

Best decision they made with her character

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

"Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!

@FullbringIchigo This one could be a real winner. I adore Anson Mount, Hell on Wheels was one of the best shows last decade and he really does make a good Pike. I’m glad the mess that was Inhumans didn’t stall his career.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

LN78

@FullbringIchigo So the people who make 'Star Trek' have finally decided to make a 'Star Trek' show. Will wonders never cease?

LN78

FullbringIchigo

@nessisonett yeah he nailed Pike and i'm genuinely excited he is getting the lead in a series

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"
