    New Star Trek show with Picard

    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/81639

    Picard no longer a Starfleet Captain, series directed by Jonathan Frakes. Not sure if the beard can cut it as a TV helmer in the TV landscape which has changed radically since 1994, although the Frakes-helmed STTNG episodes were easily among the best.

    Alex Kurtzman is the showrunner, not Frakes. Frakes is a work-for-hire TV director.

    Almost everything in the AICN and Screenrant articles was outlined by THR last August. Fanboy blogs gonna fanboy, but it's weird they're running this "news" as current.

    Anyway, I have a morbid interest in this show because (a) it's "Star Trek" and (b) it's Stewart. I want it to be good, dammit, but the details haven't been encouraging.

    This is firmly in “I’ll believe it when I see it” territory.

    Yep.

    Star Trek as a franchise is in turmoil right now. Discovery has very mixed reviews and ratings dropping consistently, the fourth movie was cancelled, the movie by Tarantino was cancelled.

    I’ll believe this is happening when there are shots from the set / a trailer.

    Well the fourth movie and the Tarantino movie were never in pre-production like this series is. There were just scripts.

    I’ll still believe it when I see something come to fruition.

    Welllllllllll, your skepticism might be a little misplaced.

    The rights to "Star Trek" are owned by 2 corporations. Paramount owns the movies, Viacom/CBS owns the TV. What happens with one property doesn't effect the other.

    Paramount shitcanned the Abrams-based "Star Trek 4," but they haven't said anything definitive about the Tarantino project. (They don't need to as they still have the option on it.)

    "Discovery's" premiere was broadcast and received ~10 million viewers. The rest of the episodes are on a streaming service and CBS has not announced viewership numbers for them, a la Netflix. Fan reaction was mixed (at least, going by Reddit). Critical reaction was net positive, with something like a 75-80% favorable on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.

    While "Discovery" had a long and tumultuous development process, "Picard" was only announced only 6 months ago and there hasn't been indications that it's in trouble. Both shows are heavily tied to the success of CBS All Access; they won't go away until the service is on solid footing or it's cancelled itself.

    ETA: The only way I could see it not happening is if Patrick Stewart dies or drops out.

    ETA2: No, of course I'm not an overly defensive "Trekkie." Why do you ask?

    Maybe crossing over into ST Discovery territory at a later time? Would be sweet.
