I fucking NEED more Jean Luc Picard in my life! Surely he'd be an Admiral in this series, I wonder if they will bring back any of the other characters.... For a complete reboot and at what point in the time line it will be, they decommissioned the Enterprise when Worf joined in season 4 of DS9. So assuming it's the same Enterprise it will have to be in the two years between TNG ending and season 4 of DS9. They could go completely different though and put him in a new Enterprise and fast forward to Voyager or even beyond...

I just hope they don't fuck it all up and remain true to the story that's already been.

Not necessarily, could be a cadet - they might be doing a "Starfleet High" comedy angle on things.

Slap a wig on him - he'd pass for 17.

Sorry, yes. Kirk could have been great if it wasn't for Shitner. Sean Connery would have made a good Kirk.

This is about the same time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btjBvrly2aI

Sean Connery make a good Kirk? You have got to be joking, right? Connery playing a guy from Iowa? Did you ever hear his attempt at a Russian accent in Hunt for Red October? :lol: No, I think Jeffrey Hunter would have done just fine as Captain Pike.

Your overt nationalism just keeps rearing it's ugly head. :wink:

Still does not diminish the fact the the character James T. Kirk was a far superior captain to the character of the confused French Captain Picard.

Agreed, Tom Cruise would have been ideal.

Nationalism? Where did that come from? I was just trying to think of someone in film around the same time, who was considered good with the ladies and wasn't adverse to doing action.

Also, what Russian accent? Russians obviously have Scottish accents :lol:
