    Video Unavailable. Every individual country probably has its own region locked version.

    Interesting as that's a UK trailer and I'm in Australia nowhere near UK haha.

    Oh well I've put the region locked USA CBS trailer in the post too but I'd be surprised if you can play that one unless you're in the states.

    Wow that actually looks kinda interesting. Haven't said that towards trek in the last 20 years, give or take a few.

    TNG had a great finale, but the movies were kinda poor and ending on Nemesis really left it on a bad note. Maybe they can make it right.

    Just how much makeup is Brent Spiner wearing to look like he hasn't aged in 20 years?

    Cautiously optimistic. It certainly seems to feature a lot of former Borg, which I'd guess isn't a coincidence.

    Also... enough with the slow piano versions of old themes in trailers please. It's getting silly now.

    You'll probably sound different when you're almost 80, too.

    I am avoiding the trailers because I can't pick up CBS's streaming service and this is too exciting and I am trying to tune it out! hahaha

    When they first announced this series I was very skeptical but the more I read about it, the more it seems like it's going to be awesome. I'm especially glad they seem to be back in the normal, post-TNG timeline. I am a bit sick of rehashing the past like the movies and with the way the last two new shows have both been set in the past. I really want to know what happened to the characters post-Nemesis (which I agree was kind of a poopy movie).

    Zero confidence in what CBS can produce. They're relying on old names and nostalgia for this. The trailer might as well be Logan... In Space!

    I'll give it a shot, but I expect the worst.

    I broke down and watched it. There is a rock formation at 1:07 in the US trailer and I'm pretty sure that's somewhere near where I live, has been used in multiple star trek series/movies as a scene and I really want to go see it in person.

    Edit: And it was a super generic trailer, right down to the dramatic pause as the music reach a crescendo for someone to ask the hero a serious question so he could reply semi-flippantly. If it wasn't about Picard, I'd call it a bad trailer.

    I don't like this girl living MacGuffin. But I do like how it seems to be basically Star Trek's Firefly. But then it brings back the Borg and the Edgy Goth Romulans 'o woe is us, our planet got destroyed by a weird supernova that shouldn't ******* exist'. But then it shows a 25th century Starfleet.

    I mean...it can't be worse than STD.

    If there's substance behind it, sure. Relying on it to make the sale, not so much.

    Ya, Indiana Jones had the same problem. (voice sounded much older)
    And the 5th one will be coming up later. :crazyeye:

    Still, Picard having one more adventure at the end of his life sounds fun to watch.

    And Patrick Stewart probably wouldn't have been lured back if the plot was total garbage.
