    With Picard back on the screen, you know the others will at least make guest appearances at some point down the road to sprinkle some nostalgia and make it more Trek-like especially when the lead comes back into the main gig that really made you.

    Good article. I'm thankful that he decided to return to the role and I'm excited for Star Trek Picard - especially after the latest trailer with a good portion of the TNG Cast!!

    Thanks Jordan ^_^ I have to agree that it's great to see him coming back, I just hope that they do the character and the rest of the cast returning justice.

    With Picard back on the screen, you know the others will at least make guest appearances at some point down the road to sprinkle some nostalgia and make it more Trek-like especially when the lead comes back into the main gig that really made you.
    I do agree with you to a degree, however he did make it clear he didn't want it to just be a TNG Reunion. I do hope that they manage to work in some of the old cast in such as Q as I mentioned, even if it's just a quick glance. I suspect that if season 1 goes well, we could see them going more nostalgia in season 2 once people are hooked.

    I can't wait for Picard to start! Great article Chris, he definitely owned the Sheliak and probably did the shirt tuck after!
