Who knows what will happen. Honestly, I find the appearance of Data in any form beyond a flashback to be shameless pandering to the fans.

Today's CGI is so good that Brent Spiner could be de-aged.

Isn't the entire existence of the series pandering to the fans? :D I really hope we see lots of guest stars. I love most of those characters and I want to see them again in their old ages.

Digital de-aging is definitely one option. Or Data could have been uploaded into a ship's memory (so they'd just need his voice) or he could be a hologram (so he could be entirely CGI). Or maybe he's using that ability to age in appearance that they talked about once, so that he can be Picard's peer.

^^ I'm open to all these possibilities :yes:

The key, of course, is good writing. If they do this right, this series can culminate Patrick Stewart's career and wrap up his Star Trek involvement on a really high note. He deserves that.

That would be very nice. Poor Nimoy got stuck with JJ Trek as his last hurrah.

Actually, I thought Sonequa Martin-Green narrated that commercial.

I hate that everything has to be "dark" these days.

The people behind Picard are using it as an allegory to reflect the current times much like TOS did. Other than that, you're right. I had the same complaint about everything in the 80s & 90s being dystopian in nature.

I could probably deal with campy more than dark at this point. But I am trying to keep an open mind about Picard. It would be nice to have an appropriate epilogue to Star Trek before it's gone forever.

It appears that Admiral Picard has a new Number One. :D
