So... what did you think of Star Trek Picards final Season?
I loved it. Especialy because they didn't kill off any of NextGens Main Cast. I was really worried and it would have kind of ruined it for me.
But as much as I loved Picard I really hope that if they made a new StarTrek show with new Characters they will do it episode wise like StrangeNewWorlds or the 'older' Shows... because frankly: Making an 13 hour movie, cutting it into 13 episodes may work for a cast consisting of predominantly known characters (Like with Picard or the Marvel TV Shows) but not to introduce 10 to 15 new characters (more or less main). Discovery is prove. We had 4 seasons and only 1 storyline in each season. Naturally the main leading character must be the focus so after 4 seasons I know about Burnham, and a bit of Saru but thats it. All the other Characters: what do we know about thek other than their jobs and their main love interest if they have one.
All the other StarTrek shows had the possibility to focus episodes on other characters than the main lead. We started to knew bits of their lives, their quirks, their needs... they grew upon us. Heck after two seasons ST:Picrads I knew more about Raffi than any of the bridge Crew combined after four seasons of discovery.
Yeah... these are my two cent :D
