There is zero way of knowing for sure but your Punch It crew loves a good "What if?" This week, we take a look at the Picard trailer again and see if we can fill in the gaps between when Jean-Luc leaves Starfleet and when the show picks up. So many direction to go in it's hard to choose one, but we try.
What if "Year of Hell" was on other iterations of Star Trek?
This was a listener suggestion that we were itching to try out. We started developing scenarios for Deep Space Nine and The Original Series and got really excited. As we moved on to The Next Generation and Enterprise we started seeing a pattern in the existing writing of the show.
Our honest and hyped reactions to the Star Trek: Picard trailer
We started out the episode thinking this would just be an intro topic but it ended up filling the entire episode. This week we ponder the ramifications of this type of show as well as the possibilities of directions that show as well as the character of Picard could take.
20 years is a long time and the world, as well as our former Captain, is very different.
Last week we postulated what could have been better with Star Trek: Nemesis. Turns out that a whole lot could have been improved. We set the stage and gave the story some bones but we weren't even close to finishing. Like a Raptor in space swooping down to destroy so does our rewrite. We hack at the script, replace some characters, but keep a surprising amount of themes.
You'll never guess who we bring in to replace Shinzon.
