I know at least one person who swears up and down that the woman’s voice in the trailer is Elizabeth Dennehy (Shelby). That’d be neat, though I don’t know if the actress could be talked back into the uniform (though she did speak fondly of it in the documentary featurette on the Best Of Both Worlds blu-ray).

I thought the voice sounded like Gina Torres.May 31, 2019 at 5:32 pm #25922July 20, 2019 at 3:16 pm #26087July 21, 2019 at 12:38 am #26099Steve WParticipant
Well, they know how to pique my interest. I didn’t think the new series would revolve around the Borg so much. That prison-looking structure with all the teenage looking kids in it has a sign up saying “This facility has gone 5843 days without an assimilation”. I’m guessing they’re all former Borg that were “rescued” while picking over the bones of the Romulan Star Empire after the frankly idiotic story put forth in the 2009 movie about the destruction of Romulus.
They’ve got some weird looking actors in this show. The elfin looking guy for example. All the Romulans look a bit off. Just like the Klingons from Discovery.February 1, 2020 at 6:37 pm #26438ZLothModerator
A legitimate copy of Star Trek: Picard is temporarily available on YouTube:
Mind you, a first episode does not make an entire series. And, I won’t even compare it to the Star Trek: Discovery series because, again, I only seen the first episode.
In regards to Data… no, he’s still dead. And B4 only exists in parts. His appearance almost 25 years later after his death, however, is very satisfactory explained, and actually plays a part in the apparent arc of this series.
As for the Romulans… yes, they look different in this series. Two work for Picard at his vineyard. And, there is enough of backstory there to provide a halfway decent explanation.
Its a good start. Unfortunately, not good enough to convince me to subscribe.
