CBS tried to walk it back but I'm calling shenanigans. Why would he sign the damn clapper if he's not on the show at all?

I think we'll see all of TNG cast at some point, except the minor recurring characters.

So the first issue is out of "Picard: Countdown."

It's set one year before the Hobus supernova and mostly is about Picard trying to get the Romulans ready for evacuation. Buiding ships for them and all. Basically, the Romulans only want their elite to be evacuated. There is an aboriginal-type race that is amongst their worlds that they do NOT want evacuated... so Picard doesn't like this. Apparently he is not popular with the Senate for pushing the "we need to evacuate the Romulans quickly because we don't know when Hobus supernova will blow!" thing.

As of 2386...

Picard is an Admiral. Apparently stationed on the USS Verity. It's the same as the Enterprise-F in Star Trek Online.
Geordi (a commander) works at Utopia Planetia Shipyards.
Riker and Troi are still on the Titan.
The African American lady from the trailers is his first officer on the Verity, Lt. Commander Raffi Muskier.
It is mentioned that the Enterprise is out there, but that if Picard wants to go "back" to it, that the "new captain won't give up the chair easily."

I enjoyed the issue. Wondering if Worf might be captain of the Enterprise, but that might be a long shot. Still... that's going to be my theory until proven otherwise.

And I liked the inherent conflict. Romulans want to be evacuated, by they're an elitist race who don't give a crap about the natives. Why wouldn't they leave them behind? They probably want to leave the Remans behind, too.

They went out of their way to avoid a gender. I'm going to guess Crusher just because it's a gut feeling... definitely between her and Worf.

Though I suppose it could even be B4, since maybe he hasn't been blown up yet or fritzed out. Maybe we see that happen.

Yeah, I was wondering why they created some other primitive Romulan race when all they had to do was use the Remans.

I'd rather see Beverly running the USS Pasteur like in "All Good Things"... jumping to the command track and leaving medicine entirely is too hard for me to buy. But good point--I actually forgot about her there for a second...

Because Starfleet already knows about the Remans. It's a different fight if Starfleet is saying "Look, we KNOW about your vampiric offshoot species on Remus. Let us evacuate them, too, or no dice."

Hm, maybe you're right. And thinking big picture, maybe TBTB wanted to make Michael Dorn happy when he shows up on the show by bringing his "Captain Worf" thing to life. Albeit, differently.

Well I mean.... are they retconning the original Countdown comic which was supposed to be in continuity as an intro to the Abramsverse? Data was Captain of the Ent-E there, and a big deal was made to say that particular book was canon.

No, that can't be canon anymore. We're at the same time in this comic, and Picard is an Admiral here but in that old comic, he was an Ambassador. And unless it's going to turn out that B4-as-Data is in fact the captain of the Enterprise next issue, then that's wrong, too. Geordi seems to be in the same place in both, though.

So... not too comforting for the prospects of this Picard Countdown remaining canonical. Orci AND Kurtzman wrote the story for the old Countdown and that's out the window, so it doesn't really matter if Kirsten Beyer wrote this either.

For TV shows I just consider comics or novels non-canon in an expanded universe kind of thing. If it doesn’t happen in a series or movie, I don’t count it.

I'm forced to agree in most cases, but this case it's ridiculous because both this and the original countdown book were thrust into the limelight by the movie studio and creators as being direct connections of canon events to the '09 movie, and now the show.

But yeah, this nonsense proves even further that if it doesn't happen on-screen then it's not part of the story.

The rule of thumb for TV shows or movies that have comic or novel tie-ins, is to view all that stuff as "soft-canon" even if the creators/directors say it's canon. They know good and well most people will never pick up these books or comics, so most of the time TV shows or movies either ignore or just give this stuff a passing reference.

90% of the people watching the new Picard series aren't picking up an IDW comic of it.

"soft-canon"

Good term for it, yeah. This is going to be even more ironic if the new show uses the Enterprise-F which was "canonized" in the online game....

I've been wondering that, too. I feel like we will get to see the Enterprise at some point in STP, but I don't think it's going to be the E, so... kind of means F. And I doubt the people at STP are going to just say, "Oh, the online game already has a design for that ship, we have to use that."

Probably them using the design of the F for the Verity in the Picard Countdown comic is a consolation prize.

Another trailer here:

https://io9.gizmodo.com/in-a-new-loo...UbWPtEdnxlUc_A

So that WAS Data wearing the TNG movie-era uniform.

I can't wait for this. I know it's not going to be straight up TNG magic. But I think this could be more akin to "Enterprise" than to that other new crapfest, whatever it was called.

TNG DNA all over it with perhaps some modern sensibility.

I don't know... I think the first half of the season at least (when it was just Kurtzman) will be very much STD with some TNG DNA sprinkled about it. But still people screaming at one another, mandatory explosions per episode, etc..
