    Should The Untitled Picard Series Cast Rosario Dawson and/or James McAvoy? Sure cast Rosario Dawson. I would object to James McAvoy as a younger Picard. I would think Tom Hardy would be better since he was a clone of Picard in Star Trek Nemesis. That would be a better connection than James McAvoy. If we were talking another X-Men movie my position would be in favor of McAvoy instead of Hardy.

    Rosario Dawson has some good acting creds, she could be a great Klingon or anything else the writers could come up with in Trek. As far as James McAvoy vs. CGI Young Patrick Stewart/Jean-Luc Picard, I’d think there would be some limits to how that ‘de-aging’ tech works anyways; for instance, it wouldn’t exactly fit to have a CGI TOS-era Shatner/Kirk with old Shatner’s voice coming out of him. So depending on how young Picard is supposed to be in a specific story (maybe 30+ years younger than Stewart/Picard is now), McAvoy could be the better choice.

    More Discovery content in STO sounds good, an adventure with Tilly especially, and the Reputation revamp could be interesting. (Though I wish that the account-wide sponsorship instead just auto finished those Reps on subsequent characters; 8-9 weeks of grinding per Rep HAS to be enough ‘return-on-investment’, right?) And if all goes well with Age of Discovery numbers wise, then maybe down the road CBS will see fit to tie-in the new Picard show stuff with STO as well, including possibly some voiceover from Sir Patrick Stew himself!!! (So play nice Disco bashers, or no Picard for you! :p )

    Awesome show guys 🙂

    With the Short Treks, I’m with Elijah. It’s definitely not worth paying $60– err, $40 to access one tiny episode a month for four months. Looks like it’s time to raise the black sails for me!

    I’d love to see Rosario Dawson in the new Picard series, but if she plays a klingon I *really* hope she doesn’t end up being a relative of the other Dawson klingon. James McAvoy? Ehhhh… Kinda feels like he would’ve tweeted that response regardless of if it were a Star Trek show or not, and therefore he’s just riding his X-Men fame as long as possible.
