Picard's dog, Number One, is played by a rescue pit bull named Dinero. Patrick Stewart insisted that Picard have a dog of that breed, as he and his wife volunteer with a pit bull rescue organization. Writer and producer Michael Chabon commented that while Dinero is a very friendly and affectionate dog, he's not much of an actor. Several planned scenes with Number One had to be reworked because Dinero wouldn't take direction. See more »
Another serialized, overly dramatic, hopeless-feeling show that got the "Star Trek" label slapped on it.
Growing up, I could always count on Star Trek to take me to a consistent world that filled me with hope for the future. Exploring the galaxy in incredible ships that were the pinnacle of human ingenuity. Wondrous technology. Adventures in the holodeck. Role-model captains and their loyal crew. Meeting intriguing, occasionally hostile, alien races every week.
Yes, sometimes there was drama, death and worry, but always, ALWAYS, it ended up teaching us a valuable lesson in a clever way and filling us with hope for humanity.
That's Star Trek, or at least that's what I think of when I think of Star Trek.
Picard continues the recent tradition of being serialized, slow-moving, overly dramatized crap with poor dialog, set in a hopeless world where everything is dark and going to hell. Everything is negative. Lens flares and over-the-top action scenes galore.
After seeing the first episode, I realized that not much actually happened in it. That whole section of the story could have been told in about 20 minutes. They are drawing everything out with extra drama, pointless scenes and weak dialog, because adding fluff is the only way they can extend their plot across 10 or however many episodes it is they have planned.
I don't want a 10 hour drama film with the slowest possible pacing. I just want Star Trek back. Give us a classic TOS/TNG/Voy/Ent style show again, in an episodic format with an occasional epic two-parter. THAT'S ALL WE WANT!! The formula is a proven winner.
Until they return to the roots of what makes Star Trek what it is, I'm done with the franchise. Had some hope for this show. I thought certainly they learned their lesson with the backlash to Discovery? Nope. They didn't.
The only good things I can say about this is that the acting is good, and it's not as bad as Discovery.
Alex Kurtzman should never be allowed anywhere near this franchise again.
