There were those 30 minutes that Kirk went to the head while he was on the USS Retcon: briefly alluded to in Jeff Stain's disdainfully received 320x240 fan flash animation, but never accepted as canon. Let's make it so. A 13 episode limited streaming miniseries, with whichever TikTok OnlyFans Influencer will attract the most desperately sad dumb fans to pay for the service. Oh, and give a small role to any not dead Trek actor who needs the money, just so we can give this turd a sprinkle of 'star dust'.

We have an infinite amount of time and space but let's make another story set in the same 80-year period.

I love Discovery.

It doesn't feel like a typical "Star Trek" show but, to me, it's a really fun sci-fi adventure on TV that happens to use Star Trek names.

I didn't love Picard as much, but it's sort of felt like the same thing. A sci-fi show that they threw Picard into, but it didn't  really feel like a Star Trek show.

I think it would be interesting if they did show  from  the various aliens point of view.  Have Starfleet be the menace that shows up from time to time that they have to deal with.

I've said many times before in Star Trek threads, I would love to see a Star Trek show from a civilian point of view. What is it like for me and my family who happen to own a spaceship in the Star Trek universe?

Am I allowed to just travel from planet to planet in my spaceship station wagon? What if I bump into the bad guys? Can I call Starfleet to help me out? Are they like the space police?

Picard kind of covers that. Granted the guy with his own ship is an independant contractor of sorts and  a former starfleet officer.

The only shows about regular people are sitcoms.  I imagine that would hold true in the 23rd-24th century too.  No one wants to sit down and watch a day in the life of an actuary or warp core designer.

You do know Discovery is an objectively bad show, right?
Sonequa Martin-Green and the rest of the cast are the victims.

I love it too.

It's got wobbly parts, but also some of the best characters in any Star Trek ever in my opinion (I think David Cronenberg is the perfect mysterious "pleasant menace", and Pike, Saru, and Lorca are superb, I've even done a complete 180 on Tilly, and now enjoy her very much).

Picard had a couple of great ideas, but an absolute disaster of scriptwriting and/or interesting characters. They even somehow made Seven unappealing.

Yep. You have Cassidy Yates as a civilian freighter operator.

Ben Sisko's dad and son are both civilians with the former living on Earth and running a restaurant. You get a few episodes focused there.

The Ferengi episodes show private shuttle use.

The Maquis are basically civilians with their own settlements and 'access' to small private starships.

The whole "Federation is beyond money" thing always looked a bit creaky when they showed flashes of "normal people"... many of who were doing the sort of crappy jobs that no-one would choose to do if money/food/shelter wasn't an issue.

One of my favourite things about Picard is it's suggested that's basically propaganda.

I found SB 2199 to be an awesome update to the story.  They got rid of the silliness and changed a few things just enough so you weren't watching exactly the same story again, without ruining what was awesome about the original.   I watched it as an adult and felt the same way about it as when I watched the original more years ago than I want to count.

The people who created it obviously respected the original a lot.

Imho First Contact is second only to TWOK. And give Insurrection a second look. Not a great movie but would have fit in well as a three episode arc in season 6 or 7.

Yeah but they became wannabe Star Wars movies. Which is fine, that's what the audience wanted at the time. But really, driving a dune buggy through the desert shooting at primitive natives? Kind of violated both the prime directive and film logic.

And Insurrection was just weird. Picard sided with the wrong side just because he wanted some MILF action.

They did an awesome job of copying the original, right down to the in-your-face moralizing in a couple of episodes.  It's like they got in a time machine, went back to TOS' cancellation, and kept the show going only with improved special effects and worse acting.

But it's still worth watching if you enjoyed TOS.

The dune buggy scene was Nemesis, and even the cast said that movie was doomed from the start. shiatty way to go out too.

Sorta jumping topics... Picard S1 was pretty good, but whoever composed the intro score is a genius. What a gorgeous piece of music.

I feel like you haven't seen Star Trek or Star Wars, possibly both.

Nemesis is the worst of the bunch as far as being not "Trekky", which is down to the director knowing jack about Star Trek. But Picard was consistent in character in his choice in Insurrection, and forcing people - secretively or not - away from their home where they will inevitably die is not what most would consider the moral choice.

If you ever want to frustrate yourself, watch the deleted scenes of Nemesis. Not only are they by far the most "Star Trek" like scenes, but they mostly deal with the idea of everyone moving on and I think it would've given the movie a much more substantial feel of being the last hurrah.

Also the full ending scene, which they chopped up in the final release, is actually a really nice sendoff. Baffling they just cut it off in the middle.
