Hailing Frequencies Open: Picard in the Media

Recommended Posts

Patrick and Jeri are delightful during a BBC Radio interview.  Basically, their entire promotional tour has done nothing but fill me with joy.

"Star Trek: Picard," "Grammys" Drive CBS All Access to New Record Highs

Quote

In addition to the record month for subscriber sign-ups, STAR TREK: PICARD's premiere also marked a new record for total streams and drove the highest volume of subscribers streaming a CBS All Access original series to date, up more than +115% and +180% over the previous record set by STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, making the series the service's most-watched premiere ever.

Will Wheaton was on CBC Radio's Q this morning. Towards the end of the interview he talks about the after-Picard show he hosts as well as the possibility of Wesley returning as a guest (even though the character transitioned to a higher plane of existence as I recall). It sounds like he would be glad to do it, especially since it would give him an opportunity to interact with some former colleagues as an adult now. Obviously, at the time of ST:TNG he could not partake in after-shoot libations and other late night celebrations or discussions.

 Wesley was seen at the wedding reception in Nemesis wearing a Starfleet uniform.  There was no explanation of when or how he returned.  The novelization had him returning specifically for the wedding, stating that he popped back from his higher plane naked and someone provided him the handiest piece of clothing, which was a uniform.

I believe the entire cast (or most of them) are also doing a panel together to discuss season one - that one will also be listed on the Comic Con website, once full details are available

I didn't see it on the list that was released yesterday but it's obvious that they haven't set everything in stone yet. Hopefully there will be more info about the cast panel soon!

I'm not surprised they've pushed it back, given the state of LA at present, although it's a shame since they are already almost a full year behind schedule. I know Discovery is already back in production for its 4th season, but Discovery doesn't have an 80-year-old lead!

The plan for Picard, as I understand it, is to shoot seasons 2 and 3 back-to-back, so I hope they manage to achieve that aim while also protecting their cast and crew from this wretched plague. And at least they've had plenty of time to write and refine the scripts, in theory! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for greater development of the crew, rather than the same kind of narrow focus on Picard seen in S1.
