    I thought I’d start a discussion about a Star Trek: Discovery or Picard themed pin.

    I know I would be interested in both, but it wouldn’t be a slam dunk situation. Clearly the market has supported other ST themed pins.

    #2 5 months ago

    Picard is the better show, IMHO...but Discovery would make a better pin.

    #3 5 months ago

    For a pin, Discovery, hands down.

    #4 5 months ago

    I agree, Discovery > Picard. To be successful with a pin, how many seasons of a TV show have to be out? Would there be more buyers a year from now (economy withstanding.)

    #5 5 months ago

    Star Trek Picard is absolute garbage. Why would you make a pin out of an old man doing absolutely nothing for 10 episodes with terrible 1 dimensional characters, plot holes the size of a borg cube, space plants that take down borg cubes, and a final plot ripped from Mass Effect?

    The only solace i have is that it wasnt "picard" , but some romulan clone named "JL" that can barely command a pigeon, let alone a starship.

    Can't we get The Orville, The Expanse, or Mass Effect instead? Star Trek isn't what it used to be.

    Both are crap

    How did you like China’s obvious influence on Paramount/CBS in the last episode? The name of starfleets Flagship sure the F wasn’t the Enterprise was it? Reminds me of when they make disney make changes to their movies at that countries influence. F’ing garbage.

    I havent watched Discovery yet, but fml Picard was so disappointing. I had to rewatch the TNG movies to cleanse my mind

    #9 5 months ago

    The Orville is great. I truly enjoy most episodes.

    #10 5 months ago

    wow..picard is bad! the 1st episode or 2 makes you think it will get good. that changed quick. they should have gone without the wash ups of troi and riker in it. can't believe they renewed it for another year. i saw the actor playing data quit the show.

    Oh, Orville would be hilarious. Good call.

    #13 5 months ago

    Picard. Discovery is shit.

    #14 5 months ago

    They both were very badly made shows. Let alone star trek shows. There are not enough fans to sell a few 10 dollar action figures. A pin wouldn't make any sense.
    Orville on the other hand. Or how about westworld?

    Really though a matrix pin or a cyberpunk 2077 or back to the future would be gold.

    #15 5 months ago

    DS9

    Here's the problem. Someone at CBS disagrees with you.
    I read somewhere that STD has already been green lit for Seasons 4 and 5... and a Movie!
    https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/star-trek-discovery-movie-reportedly-works/

    I don't *Like* that STD has been successful... but the fact that this continues despite being part of All Access gives me pause. That said; More star trek ... even bad star trek is better than none. A lot of people seem to like it.

    If the movie and season 5 becomes a reality; maybe Richie will make his 3rd star trek machine.
    In the meantime; I'll be happy to watch the homebrews... maybe even participate.

    #17 5 months ago

    I can't disagree with that.... nor a Voyager machine.
    7 needs more art.

    #18 5 months ago

    I love StarTrek. OG then NG with my preference being the 80's films. There are some great Voyager and DS9 episodes but I never got sucked in. However, the new films and new series are shit. Just garbage like the new Star Wars stuff.

    I wouldn't buy a pin based on either.

    #19 5 months ago

    Now were talking. Far to few pins based on video games that would be 10x better than the shitty shows and movies of today.

    Yeah but on a game that isn't even out yet and we don't know much about. Have you seen the dumpster fire that is the Last of Us franchise and how the fans turned on it in just the last week based on the leaks of the story? I have faith in CDprojectRed but it's 6 months away and too early to call. There is no fan base only hype right now.

    #21 5 months ago

    Who wants a Picard pin with starfleets new flagship the USS Ente... no wait I mean the USS ZHENG HE lmao!!!!! F Paramount F'em.

    #22 5 months ago

    Enjoyed both programmes, Discovery would make for the better pin theme.

    There is a Voyager video game

    #24 5 months ago

    Guess I am in the minority in that I liked Picard. I had some issues with it, but overall really enjoyed it. Would make a crap pinball machine though.

    #25 5 months ago

    DS9 is my #1 dream theme. It'll never happen though.

    Quoted from gecko157:

    Yeah but on a game that isn't even out yet and we don't know much about.

    I was kinda speaking in a general desire for more video game themes. Yeah I would need to see the game but even if it wasn't my style gameplay wise it could work as a pin. Anything is better than 80's kids films, old rock n roll bands and superheros for me anyway.
    Darksiders
    Castle Wolfenstien
    GTA
    God Of War
    Doom
    Zelda
    Deus X
    The Elder Scrolls
    The Witcher
    Uhhhm, Fallout.

    come on, that's sounds great.

    #27 5 months ago

    I’ve enjoyed all of the ST shows. If I had to pick one (that hadn’t been done)....

    Voyager I think has the best storyline that would work with a pin.

    Quoted from zaki:

    i saw the actor playing data quit the show.

    No, he didn't. He said he quit playing data, but would continue playing Alton.

    #29 5 months ago

    I'd be first in line for a Voyager machine. Maybe get a custom Hirojen , or species 8472 back glass. I definitely do NOT want to see a big Janeway on my backglass. haha
