I have the perfect idea for the return of Jean-Luc Picard. Rather than have him involved with StarFleet or serving as an ambassador for the Federation, why not allow him to apply his profession as a professor of archeology and have him (and some co-star(s)) embark on a journey in search of new adventures, exploration, and/or advancements in technologies using "The Chase" as a template?

For example, I'd think a lot of fans would like to know more about the original race that seeded this quadrant of the galaxy. We know they must have been pretty advanced. There is also the Iconians another ancient but advanced race and the builders of the Gateway.

Although this series can feature Picard replete with all his STNG experience, I think this new show really should be focused on the next generation of his civilian life, and separate from his StarFleet military force days.

Interesting call.

This role would really keep him in space, but as a "gentleman explorer" similar to Darwin; in his own quest. Of course Picard being Picard, who knows what he encounters.

Hopefully, the producers don't put him back in a uniform, playing "shoot 'em up" with the likes of Borg, or the latest "other."

This sounds like a good idea to build on all the existing lore, maybe we can get some more nuanced stories with half the writing and backdrop completed.

I kinda feel like right now I'm over with serious, harder sci-fi. There's been a lot of it over the last twenty years, and yet I really keep wanting a new Red Dwarf Voyager was a huge letdown, it came off as really corny. I missed Sisko's story. Kate Mulgrew was a good pick for Janeway though.

I feel the same. Nothing will ever compare with TOS in my mind.

TOS was a pioneer way ahead of its time. Which might explain why it was received so badly and cancelled after just 3 seasons. Also, due in part to a limited budget, they made a lot of technical and continuity mistakes. Something they were much more conscientious of with the updated generations of the franchise.

Technically speaking TOS only ran 3 seasons and its subsequent spinoffs never ran more than 6 seasons individually. The Simpsons, on the other hand, has been running continuously for 29 years. The longest in TV history.

Well he did appear to be in retirement in his last scenes... I suppose they could pull him out of retirement, but I think what KraneXL has proposed offers him the ability to be in space, cross paths with whomever/whatever is out there, and still not have to wear the uniform... or participate in silly shoot-em up "space wars."

It gives the actor and the story the most latitude.

I like the new series Discovery and welcome any new Star Trek series at this point. I am a huge Sci Fi fan and I can't tell you how many of the shows I watched have been canceled in the last 2 yrs. Not much out there that I haven't watched so far but the good shows are far and few between.

That original cast will never be rivaled!

Never paid for a ST before and not going to start now. From everything I read it is a dismal failure but they're suppose to be changing it up a bit. I guess I'll never know unless it get syndicated, its not the first ST to have a rocky start. Not everyone found the first season of TNG that entertaining, and even I (an ardent fan) had to give up on Enterprise. It just got worse by the episode. No shields and those worthless phase pistols.

I don't pay to watch ST either. We ( My Wife & I ) were huge TNG fans and we liked Voyager also but I didn't watch DS9 or Enterprise but my wife did.
