I assume everyone in here defending Disney’s decision to not only stagger the release of the service but then deal out content piecemeal (when presumably there are none of the licensing hang up that tend to be behind these issues with other shows) are Disney cops.

So many fans seem to just want TNG Season 8, which could never happen because PatStew would be bored as hell.

I simply don’t understand what Trek “fans” want in a show anymore - aside from “MOAR DS9 but different.” I’ve grown up on Trek, TNG was my first exposure, Voyager became my favorite (thank you, Captain Janeway) and I’ve seen all the series that have aired, including the animated one.

The cursing is fine. This is not a network show from 1993 and it is rated appropriately for content. I do sympathize for people who want to watch with their kids, but there’s still a back catalog of old Trek out there. Let them watch Picard when they’re older. Read more
