    They will probably have to make a canon decision as to human aging in the 24th century for this. Some hints in the shows, very explicitly taken up in the novels, suggest that humans live 160-180 years and stay professionally active well into their second century. I'm interested to see if they stick with that.

    So government constantly pushing back retirement age is actually a form of them pursuing utopia? Well that’s a positive spin.

    The rumor mills are saying that test screenings of rough cuts of the first few episodes of STP have not been going well and that Kurtzman is out of the job as showrunner of both STP and STP.

    Indeed. If Admiral McCoy is 137 years old in TNG, I don't see any reason why Picard can't be nearly 100 and still getting around.

    I'll believe it when I can stare at his corpse in a coffin, and follow its entire path into the crematorium oven.

    Yeah, he'll wiggle his way back in, if true. I heard a rumor that he's the reason Fuller left, but I don't know.

    I'm guessing Picard was cured or was given a treatment to prevent his Irrumodic syndrome from affecting him.

    The one thing I'm most curious about is how the tech it's going to be shown. Discovery takes place roughly 140 years before Picard. Due to the latter being produced and filmed 30 years after TNG, which looks outdated tech wise now. But then again, the original series came out 50 years ago, and it can't be expected to have the same production values and look now either.

    The TNG aesthetic could be updated to the present day quite easily while still staying loyal to what we've seen, much more than could be done with TOS.

    We can do all the fancy animated LCARS panels now, along with holographic and 3d effects on screens (like how the main viewscreen was often implied to be 3D but was rarely seen that way due to filming difficulties) The only real dated things on TNG tech wise are the chunky PADDs (easily explained as a design choice to make them more robust, much like how we don't make books as small as possible nowadays) and 80s fashion choices.

    That all seems to come from the Nerdrotic Youtube channel, which is a shitty-ass source.

    Crusher even said that just because he was susceptible to it that didn't mean he would ever actually suffer from it.

    In this timeline he lived a different life and whatever events triggered its onset just never happened.

    I always kind of got the gist it was brought on by the anti-time anomaly as a side-effect of the mental time jumps.

    Doesn't look like Kurtzman is going anywhere.

    Here he is dropping little nuggets on all the upcomings shows, and it looks like its all planned out to the next decade.

    Ah, so that's where TBBS's Kirk555555 goes when he's not bitching about stuff over there. I mean, hell, he even said Shazam! was raping his childhood up until it came out and was so pure awesome he had to admit it was "alright, if you like that sort of thing".

    Hell, he posts like he can't even get it up without hate-watching half a series of Moffat or Chibnall-era Doctor Who.

    Has there ever been a more accomplished novelist who assumed the lead creative role on a series which wasn't based on any of his own works?

    I can't think of one. :mystery:
