I actually squeed and clapped as I watched this.
Given that Anson Mount's take on Captain Pike was the best thing about Discovery?
And, if they stick with the subtitle Strange New Worlds, it suggests a turn towards a bit more classic exploration Trek, which would be nice.
Maybe this will be better. Doubtful as it has the same small army of producers that will likely create a giant, muddled mess of a series.
If they don't do a season long plot arc and each of the ten* executive producers oversees an episode, it could be great.
"Executlive producer" credits don't tell you what involvement, if any, the person had in the creative or day-to-day aspects of the show The credit is often used as a sort of honorarium, or sign of past creative involvement that entitles some recognition (and often some money). Stan Lee had "executive producer" credits on pretty much everything Marvel started before his death, but he didn't actually do work on anything in the MCU, other than his cameos.
Yeah, and given how they ended the first season, even though it's picked up for a second. . .how do you really continue a series called Star Trek: Picard, when the first season ends with .And despite being super excited for Picard I only made it halfway through the season before I gave up: it was deeply flawed and more akin to Farscape than Star Trek.
I'm skeptical about a Pike-based series because it's even more of a prequel and they've already shown a seriously lackadaisical attitude towards continuity.
Continuity and canon have been given too much primacy, such that they have become like the chains of Jacob Marley upon franchises. I do not care if they violate continuity a bit, so long as the story is good.
Depends on how you look at it.
