‘Star Trek: Picard’ Renewed for Season 2 - article at the Star Trek website.
 

The weekly aftershow show - ‘The Ready Room’, hosted by Wil Wheaton, was an intriguing watch too (his love and respect for Trek comes across really well) - with a few insights and stories into how the show came together and how they got Patrick Stewart interested after he initially turned down previous ideas for a show…

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

It was good. It actually felt authentic which was a big worry of mine going in but so far so good.

I look forward to seeing where this is going.

Best surprise was that it looks like they invested in fixing up Data. He looks a lot better than he did in the trailer.

The first couple of episodes have been superb, a welcome return to Picard and a more familiar Trek - albeit with changes to both him and Starfleet over the years.

The pace of the episodes too have been a refreshing change from Discovery (which I also like, though feels too ruhsed in a bid to try and hold the attention span at times). Picard is one of the few shows on tv where I immediately want to watch the next episode right there and then!

Stewart is on top form too 😃

I agree with Tobar - this feels authentic, with some considerable thought, respect and effort being put into the series.

No fate but what we make - apart from force dyads, of course!

I am absolutely loving the series so far - and agree with Tobar & Fated.

Seems like things are stepping up for Picard too, am curious to see how the show handles that as it has been very well paced so far, and taken the time to explain the events of the galaxy!
 

I am hoping for some mention of The Dominion War or Deep Space Nine - it does seem that the Romulans went back to ‘being the enemy’ after fighting alongside the Federation against the Dominion.

Maybe they found out that…

all along? 😉
