I'm incredibly excited but also really sceptical. He's basically 80 years old. They should've done it years ago, and it feels like a recipe for disappointment now. Captain Pickard shouldn't need a zimmer frame.

Should have , maybe but Stewart says until recently he was done with the character, so it's a moot point. I kinda have a soft spot for Nemesis, but it was a shame their run ended with that.

He is nearly 80 , and I'm half as ambulatory as he is at that age, not to mention the wife half my age , get in. I think an older Picard will be absolutely fascinating , if he needs a zimmer they can always chuck him in a Pike mobile.

To have an older admiral / ambassador / grouchy federation citizen, I'm down for that. Obviously no details really yet , but I'm assuming when they say series, they mean 8-10 episodes , which I can see totally working. All the original TNG cast are still kicking about as well - Frakes and Burton were just off stage watching the announcement.

It really depends on how they approach it. It ain't the 1990s anymore, and one would hope that there's a taste of the Disco style in there. Saying that, various groups on FB are collectively gushing all over this, and the other rumoured ST material that's in the pipeline. One of the Producers came out the other day and admitted that the intention is to make Trek one of the prime pieces of content on All-Access, not just in terms of having "a flagship Trek series", ie. Discovery, but a whole swathe of different shows.

The downside that I can see there is that the overall effort might be heavily diluted, spread too thin, in the rush to provide a smorgasbord. Like Disco? We've got it. Only willing to watch something based in the 24th century? Here's Picard and co. Got a hankering to relive the days of the animated series? Got that for you too (maybe). Then there's the other rumours; a series based entirely on Khan's life after he was left on Ceti Alpha by Kirk, even that old Starfleet Academy idea (please, no).

We shall see.

If there's one thing I think we can all agree on, though, it's that a series bringing back and focusing on Wesley Crusher would be the most awesome thing ever.

Shut up Wesley.

I wonder if Frakes can still pull off the Ryker chair mount/dismount.

Apparently, CBS have filed a trademark application for "Star Trek: Reliant", which seems to indicate that the Khan story rumour might actually have some substance;

There's also been mention of a similar application for "Star Trek: Destiny", but I can't find the link for that ATM.

The most horrendous rumour is that he takes over as head of Starfleet Academy, and spends his time sitting on his arse, dispensing words of wisdom while the young adult cast get the action. No. Feckin. Thankyou.

Considering his age, I would probably watch a series that featured him as a civvy, spending his twilight years indulging his passion for archaeology, and coming across some heavy duty stuff relating to the likes of the Iconians
