After all those months of thinking and waiting for CBS to announce a title for the upcoming Picard show, we finally got one last night. The show is officially called "Star Trek: Picard" which is quite nice, straight to the point that finally puts down the rumours that the show will called Destiny. Not that I would have been just as happy with that too. :) I imagine that this could easily not be the final title style for the show just as it happened for Discovery. A lot of people already pointed out the "Star Trek" logotype that is the TOS style. This is perfectly OK considering that CBS going towards a universal brand image for all Star Trek, so having that above PICARD is just fitting. :)
There was also a leak photo online about the series that we been able to see how he will look like in the new series and also a filming photo that I was excited about. Seeing Patrick Stewart and all of those colourful, great costumes is just what a fan could wish for. Obviously the still images have no indication about the series itself, but it certainly made a big buzz in the online community. I'm more than happy to have this show coming up this year to our screen even though there's been news about the streaming services that made some of us had our eyebrow raised. One would wonder, when we will get a single, universally accessible platform to watch everything. Frankly, living in the UK has its disadvantages already as CBS geo-blocks content on twitter and we have to wait days to get what everyone is talking about in North America. No offence but more people would pay for a service if there would not be a difference between the regions.
Above all this, I'm more than happy that things are going well for Star Trek and this show can not come fast enough. I would love to know what do you think about the first pictures and what are your hopes for this series. Please let me know in the comment section below and I'm looking forward to have a chat about it. Also make sure that you check back often to read more of my upcoming thoughts. Until then, Live Long and Prosper. _\\//
