Here's where I'd post a link to the Star Trek: Picard trailer if I wasn't on an iPad right now.

I'm disturbed by the lack of plot hints being given in the name of pandering. To me this is a very bad sign, a sign that the creators don't trust their writing to stand up on it's own. By all means be vague, but the idea should be to make us ask "is that scene supposed to mean A or B", not "I have no idea what is going on!"

A podcast interviews Phil Farrand.


He certainly doesn't sound like I thought he would. He also recaps why there won't be more Nitpicker's Guides. I had long gone with "he can't risk spending this much time on something that might get him sued by Paramount." Whether Paramount could succeed in suing him (short version: no, but it would still be a huge hassle for him to prove that they can't). I didn't know that he was planning a Star Wars guide including the novels. I didn't know that it wasn't the Trek lawyers that scared off his publishers, it was the Wars lawyers.



I almost wonder if this should be on the Amazing Things I Learned Today thread, but that seems to have died and I don't like necroposting if I can avoid it.
