I assumed being in the Delta Quadrant and all we would see them at some point. But I was thinking season 2 or 3. Pretty cool.

And yes, another legacy character has returned! Admiral Jellico is a really interesting addition, I never thought we would see him again. But I never thought we would see Sybok again so here we are! A little disappointed we didn’t get one look of Chakotay but not complaining.

Prodigy just looks good and exciting. It’s incredible how big they are going on a show aimed for 8 year olds.

Glad to see Jellico back.
Wonder why the new Picard trailer has already been pulled from YouTube…

It’s still on there. I think they just unmarked it as private earlier than intended and will presumably mark it as public again shortly.

Yeah. Another site and YouTube released the Picard Trailer first by accident. They were quickly taken down.

And I love all the pressure the fans and Mulgrew are pushing for a live action Janeway again. Kurtzman saying there have been talks (which we knew) is great but I have a feeling now it’s sooner than later. GIVE US LIVE ACTION JANEWAY!!!!!

Side note: I’m positively surprised that Paramount+ is finally releasing these trailers without geo-blocking. Or at least my region is no longer blocked.

Same, works fine here (Eastern outskirts of EU)

It’s amazing how this looks so great yet Discovery looks so bleh.

Get your eyes checked

Yep! 👍

I don’t even care about Discovery anymore. Show has been average at best or plain poor for four seasons now.

Prodigy looks fun and actually understand what Star Trek is. Excited it’s coming back soon.

I thought the DIS trailer was OK, but yeah it’s feeling more of the same unfortunately.

This show looks amazing. I’m going to have to rewatch the first 10 episodes to get back into it, but I’m looking forward to Oct 27th. Who says this is for kids?


I am excited! Can’t wait to see where the next part of the season brings us.

Justice for Jellico

Screw that guy.

That guy saved Jean Luc Picard.

He also almost killed Picard.

That would be Gul Madred…

And Picard wasn’t “almost killed”. Madred may have killed Picard if he had given Madred the information he sought. But he had no intention of killing Picard outright.

Clearly from your comments, you have a dislike of Jellico, and a favoritism of Picard (I am biased neither for or against either character). As far as Jellico’s handling of the situation with the Cardassians, and his command of the Enterprise, he was absolutely right on both. The fact that Picard may have been caught in the crossfire, Jellico felt was a possible acceptable loss.

This is a great trailer and the best out of the three for me. Some great surprises. Happy to see the Borg and Jellico back!

I know this isn’t a popular opinion. But Jellico was an excellent Captain. Riker was unprofessional in the episode with him. Riker said he took all the joy out of it. Sorry, but your dealing with life and death situations. This wasn’t a time to worry about feelings of joy. Jellico then had the professionalism to come to Riker and ask for his help when he needed it.

100% agreed

Jellico was a different kind of Captain than Picard. But he wasn’t wrong in his command style, his command decisions, or his dealings with the Cardassians… Riker was acting like a “spoiled little brat”, and he absolutely deserved to get smacked down by Jellico. Not just relieved of duty, but punched in the face for his insubordination.

I don’t think Jellico would work as a Captain of TNG “long term”, but for those 2 episodes… he was 100% perfect for the situation.

Correct answer! He was the captain the Enterprise needed at that place and time. Hopefully Riker learned something from that episode.

Riker was being a baby, but that doesn’t mean he was wrong. Jellico was just an insecure jerk who almost got them all killed. All that stuff with adding an extra shift was just stupid posturing. Riker explained that the logistics meant that it was impractical to immediately add another shift, but Jellico ignored him and tried to change things for no reason. Then he risked negotiations for more obnoxious faux-tough guy posturing. And, worst of all, he allowed Picard to be tortured and potentially executed rather than admitting that he was acting on Starfleet orders. Riker handled the situation horribly and unprofessionally, but Jellico was a god-awful captain.

allowed Picard to be tortured and potentially executed rather than admitting that he was acting on Starfleet orders”

Something something, needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few… comes to mind. While it was horrible for Picard to be tortured (something Jellico didn’t know was happening, so really has no bearing on his own actions), Jellico was acting on what’s best for the Federation. Not any one person.

He knew full fell that Picard was probably being tortured. The Cardassians have a reputation. As T’Rina or Kirk might point out, the needs of the few cannot always be put aside for the needs of the many. Picard went into danger on Starfleet’s orders, and he deserved Starfleet’s protection.

That looks exactly like Ronnie Cox…

Will be turning my P+ subscription back on for this. It’s not great… But it is easily the best Secret Hideout show out there. My only concern is they seem to be adding more and more old characters. Would honestly prefer that to stop. Secret Hideout dips into that well WAY too much. Obviously they think that is the only way people will enjoy their, er, product.
