Star Trek: The Next Generation

It came up in the Picard threads that the crew of the USS MetaFilter has yet to instantiate a TNG watchthrough. Currently, Cheeses and Jack are helming the last season of ENT, and of course PIC is underway as well. I think ENT should be wrapped before PIC is over, so it would seem time to boldly go where no threads have gone before. [more inside]

Star Trek: Picard

We’re just about two weeks out from Star Trek: Picard, which will release in ten episodes on a weekly basis on CBS All Access. The show has, roughly, telegraphed its’ intent to provide a final arc for Jean-Luc, with Michael Chabon writing directly about working on the show in the context of both his lifelong Trek fandom and the loss of his father, and Patrick Stewart drawing comparisons between the show and his last performance as Professor X in Logan. My assumption has been that roughly the same crew of posters who populate the DISCO threads will show up here. Has anyone made plans to lead posting on the shows? Most importantly: what shall the three letter code be? STP? PIC? Something else? [more inside]
