Stewart and CBS Trek head honcho Alex Kurtzman made the announcement at the Las Vegas Star Trek con today, confirming all that FOMO that we had about not being there in the first place. We delve into this amazing news in our latest episode, but that’s not all…


We also (finally) discuss those Short Treks that were revealed at Comic-Con a couple of weeks back, as well as the trailer for Star Trek: Discovery Season 2. Check out those threads on Captain Pike! And of course we have a Red Shirt of the Week to dissect (no, not that way). And guess what? It’s Captain Picard!

  1. I do hope Discovery gets a permanent Captain. It will be annoying if that gimmick keeps on happening in the show.

    I'd like to see Saru be the main Captain or Commander in charge like Sisko was on DS9 for the earlier seasons

    1. I agree, I think Saru would be a good choice for perminant Captain

    2. Yup. They have to address it soon but it my guess is after this season, they are still going to get that Captain that was on Vulcan in the end of season 1

  2. I agree guys, this new Picard show is the biggest trek news since DS9 was announced. I would imagine if Patrick is involved, then a lot of the other next gen actors would be down to put their space suits on and cameo or guest star in an episode. Pretty exciting stuff. I think that idea of doing a small nod to All Good Things is a great idea, whether it be the iramodic syndrome, or Picard in a vineyard . I would imagine though that if Picard is retired from starfleet, we'd see him as an archaeologist? Or if he's still involved with Starfleet I could imagine him in an ambassador role, maybe Earth's ambassador to New Romulus? Fun to speculate! I'd be curious to hear you guys speculate on what you think Picard might be up to when we catch up with him in 2019 or 2020.

  3. Dang, now I have to get the CBS service. Pat may have wanted a lot of money but his name will get me to pay where discovery didn't. I just hope they have the writing team that worked on season 3- 7 of TNG. A serialized say 10 episode season with one major story that comes to a conclusion each season would be a nice way to update it.
