    Fully expecting him to come out as a transgender person ( or probably a trans-species person ) and taking command of the USS Rainbow Warrior or some crap like that.

    @Repo Man

    This offends me as a vegan transgender hipster Native-Arabic-Indo-Chinese hybrid alien agnostic-atheist African engineer who vapes fairtrade organic decaffeinated compressed and hydrated extra-protein soy breast milk on the regular and does Hindi Kama Sutra naked crossfit yoga 5 times per week. I'm also a nonbinary trigender genderqueer female feminist and identify myself as a pastafarian pansexual genderfluid Apache helicopter dog of mega multi alpha beta gamma delta omega combo god of hyper death who's in a polygamous polyamorous relationship to the chihuahua which helped me cross the border of Mexico because it hates Donald Trump. My dog also walks me to the park and doggy styles me, if you find that weird you're an ignorant arrogant homophobic gender-assuming globaphobic bloodthirsty gun-loving cisgender pansexual bestial sexist racist incestuous white-previlege misogynistic biased objectified raped privileged Nazi slave owner terrorist heterosexual

    Well, I hope they do it well. The problem is, only Stewart won't make the series good, greaty depends on the script and who produces that new show.

    I read there's talk Michael Dorn is interested in reprising Worf but surely not with the abomination of the Discovery Klingons.

    It's been said it'll be a whole series about him.

    Tell me there is a single one of you that does NOT read this with his voice in your head

    “It is, therefore, an unexpected but delightful surprise to find myself excited and invigorated to be returning to Jean-Luc Picard and to explore new dimensions within him. Seeking out new life for him, when I thought that life was over. During these past years, it has been humbling to hear many stories about how The Next Generation brought people comfort, saw them through difficult periods in their lives or how the example of Jean-Luc inspired so many to follow in his footsteps, pursuing science, exploration and leadership. I feel I’m ready to return to him for the same reason — to research and experience what comforting and reforming light he might shine on these often very dark times. I look forward to working with our brilliant creative team as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life once more.”

    As a big fan of Star Trek and Patrick Stewart I will have to keep an eye on how this develops.

    Double nope

    Nope I hope it isn't sorry a Tarantino ST was and is a bad idea, he's great at what he does it's just I can't see how his style of film making will translate to big screen special effects driven sci-fi.

    and

    Nope it isn't the Tarantino ST, that's meant to be a stand alone movie set in god knows what universe of ST, now that we have what works out to be 3, The Prime Universe (Everything from ST right through to the last next gen movie) the Abrams universe (the last three movies) and for now the universe that Discovery seems to be setting up.

    As for this fantastic news all I can say is

    'Make it so'

    I was way too young to watch the Next Generation series when it was current, but I have watched it all over the years. The first season was agony. WAY too "touchy-feely." With regard to the Repo Man and Clawedge comments, does anyone else recall that, early on, the Star Fleet dress uniform for male officers was indeed a dress? (Or, at the very least, included a skirt?) It wasn't until the very last episode of Season 1, that the show finally displayed any sort of testosterone. It was like a freakin' Human Resources exposition up to that point.

    I admit it, I want unmitigated violence in any Star Trek series. Savage, prolonged ship-to-ship combat. 900x10^15-megajoule phasers. (That's a lot of zeroes, by the way.) Maximum-yield, minimum-spread photon-torpedo salvos. Save the character drama and imbedded social commentary, please. Now, I very much get that BSG isn't Star Trek, but, Star Trek could take a few lessons:





    Combat should be depicted as being a little bit more than the bridge crew collectively leaning the same way in their seats simulating an impact, some sparks and magic-smoke erupting from a instrument panel, and someone announcing that shield-strength is down to 30%. I'm not interested in watching a science-fiction chick-flick; I want something a lot more visceral.

    I hope not, i don't want him near anything Trek related after seeing his views on 13 year old girls and his old pal Polaski, keep him a way from my Trek at all costs.

    Anyway i will give this a go, and i have to admit the second season of Discovery might actually be good, moreso that they have brought the charactor of Pike into the show.
