Quoted from Frax:
^^^^YAASSSSSSSS lmao. Don't get me wrong, I've got love for Patrick Stewart...I was way more into TNG than DS9 as a kid, but as an adult with an actual brain, I've really got to say I like DS9 so much more. Up until that last season (wow...) it just felt more 'real' or 'believable' in terms of characterization and how all these people played off each other. TNG feels like a piece of stiff cardboard most of the time by comparison. If I could change one thing about DS9, it would be...
Less Keiko. Jesus christ. WE GET IT, LADY. Writers seriously f'ed over that actress giving her such a outer-space-witch-wife-from-hell role...
DS9 is the best of all the shows. I've watched DS9 many times over.
Quoted from RonSS:
Oh CBS, looks like your pay per view needed a boost? Seriously, I can only watch this if I pay cable, and then pay CBS on top of that? No thanks.
As for JLP, I think he was right, his time with the series has run it's natural course.
Perfect for people like me. I don't have cable. I only pay for Netflix currently. I didn't think Star Trek Discovery was enough to justify paying for CBS All Access. I think an additional show with Picard is more than enough reason to justify paying for it, at least for a huge Star Trek fan as myself. I'm all in!
Quoted from PinKopf:
This has just about got to have Brent Spiner bacnk as Data doesn't it, or at least the slightly retarded version from the last movie that has all of Data's personality buried somewhere, right?? Guess they may jettison that storyline to the last 20 years that have passed...
Brent Spiner is almost 70 years old. Unless data got an upgrade to make himself age like humans, I don't think he'll be coming back as Data. But who knows, writers can do just about anything.
Quoted from J85M:
From a couple more articles he is producing it as well, so he seems to be heavily involved in this which I think is a good thing, no one knows JLP better than JLP
Very true, the more the actors are involved the better.
I was initially very against the CBS All Access stuff, another dumb paid subscription, everyone is doing it now. But it probably gives shows like this more of a chance to get the green light for new seasons. Seems like everything good gets cancelled on cable, except the stuff that should. I would have liked Enterprise to be given more of a chance, that show might have needed a shake up in the cast though.
Quoted from DaveH:
I am a huge Star Trek fan. All the shows, all the movies, all the lore. Until Discovery. I get it, it is all about the money. But I'm already paying CBS through my cable company. I'm already paying Netflix, because I like their service. But I will not ever pay for CBS All-Access. I won't pirate it, I will not ever do anything to support any new streaming service that just wants to leverage my viewing like that. Other companies have tried, and I said no. This is just the latest one. They could have the hot Uhura from the reboot making out with a yummy green Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy and I still wouldn't pay to watch it.
(you know you want to see them kiss)
If I was paying for cable I would probably be annoyed too. Discovery was not enough by itself for me to pay for CBS All Access, but the possibility of more Trek shows is exciting. It will be a long time before I sign up, not until Picard's show.
