There are a lot of ways to get to know a character. You can study all their appearances, get really into the heads of the people who made them. Or, you can just be a brilliant actor who’s played that character for several years. That works, too.

Executive producer Michael Chabon is helping bring back one of Star Trek's greatest captains, with a new show centred around Captain Jean-Luc Picard (played once again by Patrick Stewart). Chabon and his other writers have a lot to live up to — not just with honouring Picard's legacy, but also the decades of Star Trek canon that have shaped several shows and films. Based on a recent interview, his approach is pretty healthy: Follow the canon where you can, but find places to make it your own.

CBS’s plans for the Star Trek franchise do not start and end with Discovery. In addition to the Captain Picard series that was announced over the weekend, CBS executives have confirmed there are other potential Star Trek shows being considered for CBS All Access. The plan looks to be all Star Trek, all the time.
It easily ranks as one of the most useful and ubiquitous memes on the internet, and now that facepalming-Picard has been turned into a display-ready bust, Star Trek: The Next Generation's beloved captain has all the more reason to disappointingly hold his head after awkwardly losing one of his arms.
This episode should have never worked. It was a one-off, inconsequential story about characters we've never seen before nor would ever see again. It had no battles, no enemies, no star trekking of any kind. And yet, "The Inner Light" from Star Trek: The Next Generation lives on; not just as one of the best episodes of Star Trek, but as one of the finest pieces of modern television. And I'm not the only one who thinks so.
