Looks like we have a trailer for the Star Trek:  Picard series already:



It does look good, but I'm having a hard time with it being connected to JJ Trek.  I guess the one saving grace so far is that it really seems to be the opposite of JJ Trek.  Whereas in JJ Trek, the characters were all heartless automatons that shrugged off the destruction of Vulcan with a wink and a smile, here we have a real human being who was devastated by the destruction of an inhabited world.

Trek is Trek. It has its ups and downs. Some parts work better than others. But it's all one conceptual whole, and even the less successful parts can spawn good stories. For instance, I despise "Miri" and its stupid, random Earth-duplicate planet that's never explained, but when I was writing DTI: Forgotten History, I realized I could use "Miri"'s concepts to generate the alternate-reality story I wanted to tell. Analogously, look at the good work that Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels did with characters and ideas that were handled much worse in the prequel trilogy, e.g. actually giving Darth Maul a personality. If you put up impassable walls between the parts of a franchise, you reject the possibility that a weak part can be redeemed.

Amazon Original?   Isn't this a CBS All Access title?

Yes, in the US, and on the Crave network in Canada. But internationally it's on Amazon Prime.

It'll also be airing on Space in Canada, like a real TV show.
