STAR TREK 'PICARD' Series Will Not Be What Fans Expect
In a TV landscape where shared universes, spinoffs, alternate realities, and reboots are all commonplace, many fans have been speculating how the upcoming Star Trek series - seeing the return of iconic Enterprise captain Jean Luc Picard - might be tackled. However, if one new recent story is to be believed, we may have a hint regarding the series' direction.
When asked by The Hollywood Reporter how the spin-off would compare to Discovery and Stewart’s previous Star Trek series, The Next Generation, executive producer Alex Kurtzman had the following to say:
“It’s an extremely different rhythm than Discovery...Discovery is a bullet. Picard is a very contemplative show. It will find a balance between the speed of Discovery and the nature of what Next Gen was, but I believe it will have its own rhythm.”
Continuing Kurtzman says:
“Without revealing too much about it, people have so many questions about Picard and what happened to him, and the idea we get to take time to answer those questions in the wake of the many, many things he’s had to deal with in Next Gen is really exciting. ‘More grounded’ is not the right way to put it, because season 2 of Discovery is also grounded. It will feel more… real-world? If that’s the right way to put it.”
So there you have it! Does this information make you more or less excited for the upcoming series? Let me know in the comments...
