Almost Like Next Gen Trek…
Kris and I gave up on Picard season 2 about halfway. Too stupid for words and I have hated “Q” from the very start. I hated buying “Q” stories for the Strange New Worlds anthology series for a decade, but them some writer would write a great “Q” story and make me buy it. Annoyed me every time.
So this year we decided to watch the first episode tonight of Picard when it dropped and shocker!!! It was actually Trek, with the cool ships, the great characters, big bad unseen aliens, and battle scenes. So much fun. Worth watching it. Sort of like Next Gen with a mission to spread gray hair all over the galaxy, and some great and funny lines as well.
And a few surprises that I won’t spoil. (And won’t let anyone else spoil in the comments.)
From an old Star Trek fan with 35 Star Trek books under my different names, and I wrote Frakes’ only novel, and the script for his first directed film, it was fun sitting and watching old Trek once again.
Actually looking forward to the next episode.
