Well it depends it could be great fun and if they bring back some of the regular crew of TNG on a regular basis it could work.

Looks like everyone is having a beard next thing you know Janeway is having a beard as well

All Starfleet personnel will be requiered to shave when at work. Except for Section 31 and those granted an exemption due to special circumstances. :wink:

Well I just think it's fashion thing which makes a show eventually look dated.

From Star Trek: Picard series character breakdowns emerge as casting begins:

Characters in the show

Starton: a male of any ethnicity in his early 30s. He specialises in positronic brains and is terrified of space. He’s charming in a self-deprecating way and is excited about the research opportunities on Picard’s mission. It goes on to say that his demeanor will evolve over the series, but it does not say in what way.

Connie: a female who is also in her early 30’s. She’s African-American and has a quick temper, but is also quick to forgive. In addition to dealing with the loss of her husband, she is also avoiding a death sentence on her home planet. She’s a mercenary pilot who uses her ship to transport people to and from an artifact of some kind, though the ship is massively overqualified for that job.

Lawrence: a handsome man in his 30’s of any ethnicity. . . who has a dodgy moral compass. He’s the pilot of the ship Picard takes on his mission. Being a capable (and enthusiastic) thief, his loyalties are questionable.

Dr. Smith: a male in his 30s or 40s of any ethnicity. From the description, it sounds like he’s an upgraded or wholly new version of the EMH. He’s described as a hologram who helps the crew through emergencies encompassing engineering, tactical, science investigation, and medical issues. He was programmed to learn but not become too self-aware. He’s calm, efficient, and empathic, but he sometimes has difficulties sorting out others emotional reactions to get at the facts.

K’Bar: the youngest of the leads. He’s a 17-year-old Romulan and the only child of what’s a mainly female Spiritual Order. A martial artist and considered a lethal weapon, he’s prone to mood swings and is committed to living in the moment with as much transparency as possible. He takes his devotion to Picard and his mission EXTREMELY seriously. . . obviously, they’re looking to find someone with Martial Arts experience, but also note that fencing is a plus as well.

Indira: a female in her early 20s of any Ethnicity. She’s extremely smart and physically agile . . . but maybe not so mature and a bit socially challenged because she tries too hard. Her intelligence often gets in the way of her manners. She’s cut off from home and her difficult mission puts a strain on her maturity. She’s still “finding her way in the wider world”

Alana: a female in her mid-40s to mid-50s and is of any ethnicity. She’s a brilliant analyst and has a great memory despite abusing drugs and alcohol. Often times she gets irritated with her own vulnerability and is certain of herself, even when she’s wrong. A former intelligence officer, she sees conspiracies everywhere. Her professional and personal losses weigh heavily on her.

From what I've been reading, I don't think the chances of any of the rest of the TNG cast appearing on Picard are very good.

Bummer but it is stil possible they make guest appearances Picard may come across Riker and Troi on the USS Titan

From DEADLINE: ‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Jonathan Frakes Goes Back To The Future & Finds Starfleet’s Past:

FRAKES: The feeling is we would love to be part of it. But the feeling is also that it’s Patrick’s show. [Laughs.] Having said that, I can’t imagine a world where there’s no reference to what happened to the rest of the Next Generation cast. Patrick isn’t playing Capt. Jean-Luc Picard this time, he’s done with [that phase of his career in] Starfleet in this show. That’s about the only thing I do know about the show. Patrick and I had a steak dinner a couple of weeks ago and this man, who I’ve known for 31 years now, is so excited about this show he’s like a little kid. It’s fabulous! He’s thrilled and excited to be invited into the writer’s room and he’s a producer on the show and he’s part of the development of the story arc. It’s terrific. I mean he is a guy who is fully engaged.

Thanks for posting this.

Still that has me worried that it is going to suffer from the dame problems as DISC

I saw three of the actors who have been cast on the show (I've never heard of them), and it's supposed to be set after Romulus gets blown up (the event Spock Prime mentions in Star Trek 2009 ), but that's all I know. The expectations for this show will be a lot bigger than for Discovery.

Hence my worries I don´t think after DISC a lot of Trekkies will it if it appears to differ too much from the established TNG line but since they choose for the events to take place in the Kelvin timeline it will probably serve as an excuse to put in dumb stuff
