Series run Edit

It probably will be 1 season . MechQueste talk 21:31, August 10, 2018 (UTC)

Source? -- Capricorn (talk) 22:32, August 10, 2018 (UTC)
He may be referring to the fact that at least one miniseries was part of Kurtzman's CBS deal, although it has never been publicly specified AFAIK that this series was the miniseries. 31dot (talk) 08:29, August 11, 2018 (UTC)

Removed Edit

I've removed a heretofore hidden claim that this series "is scheduled to be released in 2017." This statement is obviously erroneous. --Defiant (talk) 19:19, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

it was hidden there so that the formatting was in place when the actual date was announced. -- Michael Warren | Talk 19:34, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

What formatting? Why not wait til the actual date is announced? I don't see anything wrong with the formatting of the page even though that line has now been removed. --Defiant (talk) 21:11, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

I copied the format of the Star Trek: Discovery page from when it was originally announced for consistency. That page included the date, so I commented it out to keep it for later and adjusted the wording so it flowed without the date being there (hence why it didn't seem wrong). I saw no reason to change the wording in the commented-out section as no-one reading would see it, so I didn't bother changing it from 2017. -- Michael Warren | Talk 11:19, August 18, 2018 (UTC)


So, we need to determine the three-letter acronym for this. Going by our past practices, the logical choice would be "PIC" (same style as Voyager and Enterprise), though I don't mind the concept of "STP" either. Thoughts? -- sulfur (talk) 22:31, May 15, 2019 (UTC)

I would concur that "PIC" is the most logical choice, but it's not a huge deal to me. 31dot (talk) 22:41, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
I concur with PIC as well, for consistency reasons--Sennim (talk) 06:58, May 16, 2019 (UTC)

PS I still like JLP, but it just doesn't work. Haha. -- sulfur (talk) 01:07, May 17, 2019 (UTC)

No to mention that by using that one, everybody wants to start launching rockets (JPL anyone?) LOL--Sennim (talk) 10:54, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
STP or PIC would be nice, although PIC would be consistent along the lines of TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT, and DIS. MechQueste 19:27, June 17, 2019 (UTC)
This matter is closed. --Alan (talk) 19:30, June 17, 2019 (UTC)

EW interview Edit

Is this enough for inclusion MechQueste 16:12, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

Production Edit

Suggest adding to the already existing line on this page that reads "On 22 April 2019, production on the show began." Add to this aforementioned line to include the following: "The production will be based out of Santa Clarita Studios. SCS is an independent studio production facility based in Santa Clarita, California, 35 miles north of Hollywood. Although Star Trek will be returning to Hollywood, like all but one of the previous series, it will not be shot at Star Treks previous home of Paramount Studios." external source link :

Suggestion for inclusion Bryankreutz 77 22:22, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

Main castEdit

Has there been any confirmation that returning cast members such as Jeri Ryan, Marina Sirtis etc will be part of the regular cast, or just cameos etc?? Just wondering if they all qualify as "main" cast or not.... MadeIndescribable (talk) 10:08, July 21, 2019 (UTC)

All I know about is, that Kurtzman said unless previous characters can benefit the plot of the Series, just to bring them back for "The sake of it" or Cameos it would not be done, so at least they seem to be not just cameos and given it is about the Borg, Jeri Ryan and Del Arco are at least regulars. Lykan2 (talk) 10:39, July 21, 2019 (UTC)
There can be guest stars without their being cameos. 31dot (talk) 11:48, July 21, 2019 (UTC)

"adherence to Berman-era Star Trek"? Edit

The article currently says that the appearance of Spiner and Ryan in the trailer is "providing confirmation that adherence to Berman-era Star Trek was to some extent to be observed." I'm not entirely sure what that means, or why it's noteworthy. I think it's meant to be a rejoinder to the silly conspiracy theories found on YouTube and elsewhere that the Star Trek produced by Secret Hideout somehow isn't in the same continuity as previous Star Trek series; but as currently worded it obscures more than it reveals. In the absence of elaborate theories about designs being "25% different" and "alternate licenses", the assumption of this wiki is that we treat all officially produced Star Trek TV series and films as part of the same canon. There are alternate timelines and parallel universes within that canon, but until and unless there is an in-universe indication otherwise, we will assume that the Picard (and Seven, and Data/B-4, and Hugh) seen in Star Trek: Picard are the same individuals seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, and the films. Right?

If that is the case, and we're not going to entertain or explain the feverish theories to the contrary, the fact that Picard will follow on from Berman-era Star Trek is hardly noteworthy; in fact, it's obvious. So unless somebody can give a good justification for its inclusion, I'm going to remove that clause in a day or two. —Josiah Rowe (talk) 02:18, July 24, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, I haven't seen that called out anywhere. They've been very clear that they have intended to stick to canon. I say go ahead and remove it. 31dot (talk) 02:26, July 24, 2019 (UTC)

Done. —Josiah Rowe (talk) 02:55, July 24, 2019 (UTC)

Ep 1x09 air date is wrong Edit

It says 2020-12-19, should be 2020-03-19. Have tried changing it, but it shows {{PIC Season 1}} and I have no idea how to change that table. -- 00:09, October 7, 2019 (UTC)

Sulfur   has fixed the template {{PIC Season 1}} for you on 2019-10-06.

Conflicting director info Edit

In the NYCC panel, someone (I think Alex Kurtzman) corrected the moderator when he said that Hannelle Culpepper has directed the first two episodes; he said, "three, actually". (See video here.) But Jonathan Frakes said that he directed episodes 3 and 4. How do we square this circle? —Josiah Rowe (talk) 03:44, October 10, 2019 (UTC)

We might have to wait for the episodes, or at least the episode information. 31dot (talk) 13:23, October 10, 2019 (UTC)
Maybe she did the first two and another one later? 31dot (talk) 13:23, October 10, 2019 (UTC)

Oh, that might be it. Maybe Kurtzman was just saying that she had directed three episodes, not "the first three". I guess we wait and see. —Josiah Rowe (talk) 15:56, October 10, 2019 (UTC)

Frakes had said each director was doing two episodes in a row(he speculated for financial purposes I think) so either way, we're probably going to have to wait and see. :) 31dot (talk) 16:15, October 10, 2019 (UTC)

Further on this: whoever edited Jeri Ryan's comment in this interview seems to believe that Frakes' episodes are 104 and 105. Do we get anything like the old TV Guide listings before the episode is released on All Access, or are all the credits a mystery until the episode airs? —Josiah Rowe (talk) 03:09, January 16, 2020 (UTC)

OK, the mystery has been solved, but the solution presents us with another (small) problem. Hanelle Culpepper explains on Twitter that "We expanded the first two to become the first three. That's how we numbered them for logistical reasons since Jonathan Frakes directed 103, now the 4th episode." [1]

So we now know who's directing which episodes (the tweet above Culpepper's summarizes it, albeit in Spanish)... BUT it now seems that there is a disconnect between the production numbers and the episode numbers. I'll try to edit the episode listing following what Culpepper says. —Josiah Rowe (talk) 05:17, January 27, 2020 (UTC)

Production history location Edit

Shouldn't Production history be a sub-section of Production? -- M o r p h i a s (C | T/D/W | E) 249 contributions and counting 23:07, January 22, 2020 (UTC)

Guinan in Season 2 Edit

Patrick Stewart appeared on "The View" and asked Whoopi Goldberg to reprise her role as Guinan in season 2. (Variety, Entertainment Weekly, Twitter Video Link) -- M o r p h i a s (C | T/D/W | E) 249 contributions and counting 00:53, January 24, 2020 (UTC)

Earlier I opined how this show could catch us up to the lives of the DS9 & Voyager crews, but the entire thing was deleted and I would like to know why. Since we're invoking Guinan here, seemed like a good way to ask why my piece as removed.--GILESFAN411 (talk) 02:10, January 27, 2020 (UTC)
Because this is a legitimate news factoid. If you read the two comments below, which I know you did because you responded to mine where I mentioned it, you can do all your "opining" in memory alpha's discussion boards. --Alan (talk) 02:17, January 27, 2020 (UTC)

Waste of uniforms Edit

I find it galling that entirely new uniforms were created for this show when on 3 occasions in the 3 series all set in the 24th century, we were already treated to 25th Century uniforms in "All Good Things...", "The Visitor" & "Endgame" worn in Alternate timeline episodes. A chance was blown here to make the clothing part of the prime timeline. Seems to me the costume department wasted a whole lot of time, a whole lot of money and a whole lot of textile to make the uniforms for this show when a futuristic style had already existed. You would have had to invest the time, the money and the textiles on DRESS uniforms, but the everyday was there all along.--GILESFAN411 (talk) 01:32, January 27, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment, but this page is not for general discussion of the episode or series; this page is for discussing changes to this article only. Click "discuss" at the top of the screen to take you to a place where you can indeed discuss the episode/series. 31dot (talk) 01:43, January 27, 2020 (UTC)
Use the "discuss" feature if you want to fan wank. Also, pretty sure all of that stuff was auctioned off well over a decade ago.-Alan (talk) 01:53, January 27, 2020 (UTC)

Stands to reason you may be correct, but by utilizing those designs, the uniforms could have been rolled out much faster than by working from a drawing board on an entirely new pattern.--GILESFAN411 (talk) 02:06, January 27, 2020 (UTC)

Picadilly Circus vs Picardilly Circus Edit

If I read correctly, the "Picadilly Circus" tube station was the one that was temporarily rename as "Picardilly Circus" not a different station rename similarly to the Picadilly station. [2] -- M o r p h i a s (C | T/D/W | E) 249 contributions and counting 14:48, January 27, 2020 (UTC)

Yes, that's correct. I've changed the article accordingly. —Josiah Rowe (talk) 03:36, January 28, 2020 (UTC)

Home media Edit

What this show so far is missing is that coda showing the exact events between the Romulan Supernova and Jean-Luc Picard's retirement from Starfleet. Considering how much of a paradigm shift the fall of the Romulan Star Empire was, there could be scenes of Spock piloting the Jellyfish away from the event being followed by the Nerada and both ships passing into the Black hole. This would show us everything, and would serve as Star Trek: Picard's own tribute to Leonard Nimoy. We would also need to depict the events following Star Trek Nemesis. All of this and more can be included on the DVD/ Blu-ray. The Shield which starred Michael Jace, Jay Karnes and Benito Martinez included on their sixth season DVD, a mini-episode entitled "Wins & Losses" that showcased happier times with the Curtis Lemansky character. Stands to reason this show could follow suit.--GILESFAN411 (talk) 22:56, March 2, 2020 (UTC)

Please use the discussion forum for general comments. This page is for discussing article changes only. 31dot (talk) 02:05, March 3, 2020 (UTC)

Am I mistaken? Because I thought this was the Talk page, and was the forum we could all use to discuss the show, detail what is going on and what we hope the show explores.--GILESFAN411 (talk) 18:02, March 3, 2020 (UTC)

You are mistaken. See MA:TALK. This page is for "talk" about the article itself, not general discussion of the subject. Specific questions may be asked at the Reference Desk, while open ended discussion or general comments should go in the Discussion forum(click "Discuss" in the menu bar at the top). 31dot (talk) 18:43, March 3, 2020 (UTC)
Also see MA:NOT. 31dot (talk) 18:46, March 3, 2020 (UTC)

Production schedule for Season 2Edit

Before Covid-19 was it ever indicated when Season 2 was to begin filming? If so, it might not hurt to include this in the article, even if those dates have been impacted by the lockdowns. 23skidoo (talk) 02:03, April 12, 2020 (UTC)

I don't recall seeing anything about the timing of filming, but I know that the writers' room was working earlier this year on season 2 and working on the plans for season 3. There was (I recall reading) hopes that season 2 would air late 2020 (likely going to be mid 2021 at the earliest now), with season 3 (if renewed) airing late 2021 (likely into 2022 now). But yes, if we had dates, they'd be in the article. -- sulfur (talk) 02:14, April 12, 2020 (UTC)
I have read that Michael Chabon said that production for season 2 would have begun in June. This was before COVID19.--Memphis77 (talk) 02:55, April 12, 2020 (UTC)

Picard podcastEdit

So, apparently Deadline produced a CBS All Access sponsored podcast hosted by Dominic Patten. [3] Trekcore ran a blog with some highlights [4]

Just another source of BG info for the episodes to check out. -- sulfur (talk) 10:38, July 8, 2020 (UTC)
