Wonder what format this will be, maybe based at the academy? What I wouldn't give to see him back on the Enterprise

The next chapter of his life...hard to say. I can't see him being on the bridge of a starship anymore, I'd say he's enjoying retirement but will come back to the fray for one last adventure (bittersweet really). Feels a bit like Generations, when we seen Kirk being on the Bridge of the Ent-B but as a spectator, kinda like that I'd say, with a side of All Good Things future timeline thrown in too.

well aside from seeing Picard again, another great thing is that we'll finally get to see the Federation / Starfleet after 2379 (aside from that brief part with Spock Prime in Star Trek 09).

This may have been depicted in novels but I've never read them.

I reckon they'll keep things tight, and won't show too much. I've a feeling it'll be a personal and 'small' adventure, relevant to Picard, rather than a Federation wide issue. I'd much rather it this way, if it's going to be Jean Luc's swan song....


They seriously better not kill him off!

I agree it probably won't have the scope of Discovery but we'll still have some insight into the Federation post Insurrection.

Now here's hoping Picard won't die on a falling bridge

He should. All good Things' future portions were set in 2395 but that future doesn't exist anymore, Romulus was mentioned, so it's possible there's a cure or treatment.

You can never trust those Q scenarios.
Could be that Picard never develops it, but Q knew he was susceptible to it and just threw it in the mix to trip him up.

Great idea! Buuuuut I'm not a mod here. Though now you've asked I'm suddenly thinking "wait, am I?"

As to the news, that's genuinely surprising. Ostensibly exciting news, but for Stewart to go back, after all this time...
