    Oh dear. Here we go with the "it's different" crap. When are these
    morons going to learn what a "franchise" is and that people are called
    fans because they like how something is done. :-\

    Picard series will be 'extremely different,' Alex Kurtzman says
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    The upcoming Star Trek series centered on Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick
    Stewart) will strike a much different tone than other entries in
    the series, both past and present. Speaking to Entertainment
    Weekly, veteran Trek producerAlex Kurtzman says the new entry
    will be "different."

    "It's an extremely different rhythm thanDiscovery.Discoveryis a
    bullet.Picardis a very contemplative show. It will find a balance
    between the speed ofDiscoveryand the nature of whatNext Genwas,
    but I believe it will have its own rhythm," Kurtzman explained.

    Kurtzman, who produced the J.J. Abrams-led Star Trek big-screen
    revival, and serves as a producer on CBS All Access' Star Trek:
    Discovery, believes there is enough diversity in the types of
    stories they can tell that will allow the Picard series to stand on
    its own, while still being a relatable part of Trek'slarger world.

    "Without revealing too much about it, people have so many questions
    about Picard and what happened to him, and the idea we get to take
    time to answer those questions in the wake of the many, many things
    he's had to deal with inNext Genis really exciting. 'More grounded'
    is not the right way to put it, because season 2 ofDiscoveryis also
    grounded. It will feel more... real-world? If that's the right way to
    put it," added Kurtzman.

    Kurtzman will executive produce the new series alongside
    newly-appointedDiscoveryexecutive producer James Duff, former
    Discovery executive producer Akiva Goldsman (The Dark Tower), Michael
    Chabon (Spider-Man 2) andStar Trek: VoyagerandDiscoverywriter
    Kirsten Beyer. Also executive producing areHeather Kadin of Secret
    Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment President Eugene "Rod"
    Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, and
    Roddenberry Entertainment COO Trevor Roth.

    Beginning in 1987, Patrick Stewart led theStar Trek: The Next
    Generationseries for seven seasons before transitioning to movies
    withStar Trek: Generations(1994),Star Trek: First Contact(1996),
    Star Trek: Insurrection(1998) andStar Trek: Nemesis(2002) as well
    asStar Trek: Deep Space Nine's pilot "Emissary." He also portrays
    Dr. Charles Xavier (a.k.a. Professor X) in theX-Menfranchise.

    In June CBS Television Productions announced a new overall deal with
    Kurtzman,extending his agreement with the studio to five years. As
    part of the new production deal, Kurtzman will supervise the
    expansion of CBS'Star Trekfranchise for television, developing new
    series, mini-series and other content opportunities, including
    animation.

    The new Picard-centric Star Trek series is expected to debut on CBS
    All Access sometime in 2019.

    Patrick Stewart must be having a hard time letting go of the Picard role.
