Star Trek Picard

Recommended Posts

Anyone watching this? I've committed myself to watching all of it but it's pretty terrible so far.

I really enjoyed the first episode.  However, my opinion is basically this.  It is a good show, but its not "star trek"  or not good "star trek".  Star Trek is supposed to be bright, altruistic, humans have evolved etc;.  This is like a slap in the face to what Star Trek was.  This kind of stuff is good for alternate reality type episodes but I think they are trying to build on some future where the Federation collapses.  They are basically making people act like 21st century humans and it's annoying.  Its not Star Trek and I'm not a troll for thinking  or saying it.  The inmates are running the asylum.  People are also writing for the show who don't know anything about Star Trek, there is no effort like in the previous series to try and pay tribute to Gene's vision.

I've been watching it... and enjoying it, but I agree that it isn't star trek. 

I was a huge star trek fan back in the day, and still love revisiting the old series (TNG through voyager anyway), but I find that TPTB have it stuck in their heads that "star trek" doesn't sell, so they repackage it as darker, more violent, sexier, etc... which completely destroys the whole premise. That being said, I accept that its sci-fi with some familiar actors that I like and keep "star trek" out of my head when I watch it (Hell, you'd have to do that to watch JJ's movies, most of enterprise, etc)

if you are on the fence, and want it trekkier, you will probably shut it off in disgust at the end of the 3rd episode.
