News you can REALLY use

Or I can, at least.

It’s official — Patrick Stewart is returning to the Star Trek franchise. The acclaimed Shakespearean actor is set to headline a new Star Trek series for CBS All Access, reprising his iconic Next Generation character, Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The project, which has been rumored since the June announcement of a Star Trek universe expansion with new series, was just unveiled by Stewart himself in a surprise appearance at the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention.

The new series, which is not a Star Trek: Next Generation reboot, will tell the story of the next chapter of Picard’s life.

Hm. I’m guessing I can’t get CBS All Access with digital rabbit ears for free, so maybe it’s news I can’t use after all. Makes me happy just the same, though. For my money, TNG remains far and away the best of all the Trek spinoffs; speaking strictly for myself, I prefer it even to the original, which I do still love. Should the new thang be anything like as successful as TNG was, it’ll show up somewhere in the free-TV universe soon enough.

  1. Star Trek TNG is a great series which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also enjoyed the Star Trek Enterprise series and was sorry to see it go. I heard John Billingsley, who played Dr. Phlox in that show say in an interview that “Yes, I am the one who killed the Star Trek Enterprise” series. It was a brief comment, the interviewer didn’t see fit to question the actor further and I can’t find anything more about it that reveals what the ***k he was talking about.
    Aliens having sex with humans? Trimming his foot long nails in the surgery? A mystery. Have you heard of this?

  2. When I hear news like this, as with the Magnum PI reboot, I get both excited and scared. Excited because I loved the show and characters, but scared about how the SJW are going to ruin it.

    Is it possible to be both an optimist and a pessimist?
