Picard

Oh my god. Oh … oh Captain, my Captain.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been “into” Trek. I sort of lost interest after Enterprise. I hear that Discovery is good, but honestly I don’t even watch television anymore. I suppose I could get it on iTunes or even on some streaming services, but it doesn’t interest me.

However, Picard absolutely interests me. It does away with NuTrek and brings back TNG nostalgia that hits like a saucer section crash landing on an alien world. I am so hyped by this trailer, that I’m actually somewhat frightened. I will watch this, nay! Devour it. Sir Patrick Stewart always delivers a masterful performance, and for that alone, it’s a must-watch.

While 2020 might be an incoming trainwreck of politics, at least I can sate myself on some Trek escapism.
