Him, I expected, her, not so much, Goaty even less so! (But welcome back.)

Welcome back, Goaty!

So Seven was a hell of a surprise, panel revelations that Riker & Deanna are back less so, but the weirdest one of all is that Hugh makes an appearance.  Did anyone like Hugh?  S

From this it looks like this bay well be a tale of two diasporas, the Borg and the Romulans. You can see how Stewart might have found that an interesting story.

Also a full-on TNG nostalgia fest, as it should be.

Just sort that poor dog out.

  Did anyone like Hugh?

In his initial appearance, sure, but his return was totally squandered: he's back and he's a bit cross! Wait, he got over it. It'd be good to give the character a more memorable send-off after all these years.

But where's Worf? Probably not appearing since he'd want more than a cameo.

That's my feeling too. Hopefully this does well enough that Star Trek: Worf is next, drawing on the DS9 crew. Be good to see Geordi given something meaty to do too. Beverley I can probably live without, she complicates things, unless she's required for a Wesley storyline.

And if Hugh can come back (there weren't many Trek two-parters more disappointing than 'Descent'), fingers are firmly crossed that Wesley can too.

I watched the latest trailer and this looks really good.

The other pleasant feature is the Amazon Prime tagline rather than the CBS Closed Access one.  Fighting chance of actually seeing it at some point.

Blimey! I'm not sharp enough on my TNG to pick Hugh out of that trailer though I may have only seen those episodes once twenty+ years ago.

But feck it, if he can be brought back, can we hope for the Brig O' Doon ghost that boffed Beverley to make a return?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

AFAIK 'ol Three of Five isn't actually in the trailer, but his actor Jonathan DelArco (?) spilled the beans. 

So how are they doing Data?  Understandably Brent Spiner hasn't looked like that for a while now, is it an incredibly good fully CGI model, de-ageing or a hell of a makeup job?  Or are they going the way I always wished they would, and have Data discover a Soong-created ageing subroutine and decide to embrace human mortality, for a while at least?

But a regular talking dog (or just regular dog) would be fine too, as long as it's called No. 1 (which it will be).

Good call!

Goddamn 'Inheritance'.  I somehow missed that one at the time, and never knew I had.  Some years later my then-future-wife referenced Data's Mum in conversation and I launched into one of my patented mansplain symposia noting the existence of Data's father, four brothers, daughter, quasi-adopted son, surrogate grandfather and cat, but definitely not a mother. The argument continued until we got home and the Trek Encyclopedia was taken down from the shelf (this was in the Before Times, Hawkmumbler), and I was made to read aloud an entry entitled "Soong, Juliana".

A quarter-century later any claim of authority I make in an argument is still met with "Well, we'll just see what Data's mother thinks about that".

More to the point, although I have seen 'Inheritance' several times since that fateful day, I just can't remember it the way I do the other 177.

Oh and I can't remember it either but if Data's mother isn't Brent Spiner in drag, I'll be sorely disappointed.
