Trailer: ‘Star Trek: Picard’
So the first teaser for Star Trek: Picard has been posted.
A few thoughts:
1. Really? Star Trek: Picard is what they are actually calling this thing? Everyone’s been calling it that for months as a working title, not what we thought it actually would or should be. They couldn’t come up with something less prosaic than that? You may recall that one of the working titles for Star Trek: First Contact was actually Star Trek: Borg. But there’s a reason that wasn’t the final title, and that’s because it would’ve been a lame title. I could probably rattle off 20 things right now that would be more imaginative than Star Trek: Picard.
2. The teaser itself? Meh. Typical. Tells us nothing, shows us nothing, but gives us an idea that it’s about Picard, and connects to something Earth-bound that makes character sense — his family vineyards. Fine. But it’s shot like a commercial.
3. Speaking of, this might be the funniest thing I’ve seen all week.
That is all.
