    Small excerpt from a recent Kurtzman interview with Deadline:

    But most of all, Boucher and I pull out some more details on Picard.

    “A lot has happened to Jean-Luc Picard in the intervening years. He had to deal with some new things, and some old things. Both things collide together and he’s made choices that he’s not necessarily feeling great about,” says Kurtzman on the new Star Trek series which is currently shooting in Los Angeles.

    As the new teaser trailer indicates, “something has caused him to leave Star fleet and we will find out a lot more about what happened,” says Kurtzman about the spinoff he’s exec producing.

    What’s been key and vital on Picard is having Patrick Stewart in the writers’ room (He’s an EP on the series). “He knows Jean-Luc Picard more than anybody,” says Kurtzman.

    “We’re reverent of him,” adds the EP, “his opinion on what happens really matters to us. We couldn’t do this show unless he was happy about it.”

    More from the Deadline event, via TrekMovie:
    While the show is named Star Trek: Picard, Kurtzman stressed that the idea of a family, of a ship’s crew, is still very much at the heart of the new show:

    "It’s something that has been baked into the DNA of Picard — yes, obviously Patrick, it’s Patrick’s show — we have an unbelievable cast. And you know, the thing that I loved about the Next Gen cast is that you really could have focused any episode on any of them.

    I would say the same about our cast now, that it’s such an incredibly brilliant group of actors, [that] are given such amazing things to do. Without spoiling anything, I think that you will feel that.

    We spent a lot of time with Patrick, and you know he’s incredibly brilliant just as a human, and very warm, and obviously he knows Jean-Luc Picard better than anybody — and you know, he was really the one who from the outset said, “I don’t want to do this unless we’re breaking new ground. I don’t want to just play the character I played, why come back to that? We did that already.”

    And so it’s been a really wonderful give-and-take in our collaboration with Patrick where he very quickly came to trust that we were both going to do exactly what he said in taking Picard to a new place, but also — and he doesn’t look at himself this way — we’re reverent of him, you know? He’s Patrick Stewart. When we’re in a room with him, his opinion really matters to us, and his happiness really matters to us, and ultimately, we couldn’t do this show the way we’re doing it if he wasn’t excited about it and excited to play it."

    ...

    "I think we’ve found a story that honors everything that people love about the character, but in ways that are not what you expect — and yet, become more and more familiar as the show goes [on].

    A lot has happened to Jean-Luc Picard in the intervening years. There’s been a lot going on and he’s had to deal with some new things, he’s had to deal with some old things, and both of those things kind of come colliding together. He’s made choices that he’s not necessarily feeling great about — and yet I think the audience will understand exactly why he made them."
    "Not every movie is for you. Not every TV show is for you. Not every song is for you. Find the things you like, and like them. Go nuts liking them. A thing ISN’T for you? Cool. Go find something you like. That’s it. That’s as complicated as it should be." -- David Blue

    It feels like he is just repeating what we already know. I guess I get it that he probably signed NDA with CBS. I expect the trend we will learn almost nothing until Comic Con

    Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon has been announced as Picard’s showrunner. Besides a number of published books, Chabon’s genre credits include writing John Carter, Spider-Man 2, as well as the Star Trek: Short Treks episode “Calypso.”

    Not that I'm gonna be watching but I think it would be smart of them to bring back Vulcan and Romulus somehow. It seems that Spock and Leonard Nimoy were both double agents.

    No idea what you're talking about with the second part of this. But Vulcan will still exist as that was only destroyed in the Abram movies and that is a separate universe and although we are not 100% sure we are presuming that this show will deal with the aftermath of Romulus destruction after Spock failed to save it.
    If you're not gonna watch brand new Trek and Picard awesome then your loss.

    Still nothing on the actual plot except for those vague details?

    They're keeping things fairly close to their chest. I'm guessing they will right up until the main trailer drops because that's exactly what they did for DSC and is fairly common in tv in general these days.

    Now the teaser trailer and both posters have emphasized Chateau Picard, which we know to be on Earth....except in this second poster now there's a big planet in the sky. I'm thinking that's very symbolic - it's not literally another world, it's Earth--but the shadow of (whatever went wrong at) Romulus looms over Picard constantly.

    Interestingly it's not so much a planet in the sky as it is a ghostly outline of one. Which I think definitely symbolises a planet that isn't there anymore. Which definitely sounds like Romulus.

    It has occurred to me though that I really hope that this series will explore some of what Q was trying to teach Picard at the end of All Good Things.

    Q : You just don't get it, do you, Jean-Luc? The trial never ends. We wanted to see if you had the ability to expand your mind and your horizons. And for one brief moment, you did.

    Capt. Picard : When I realized the paradox.

    Q : Exactly. For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. *That* is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebulae, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence.

    I'm torn on that. I love that scene and would love to see it revisited...but at the same time, I'm not sure I want Q in the new show.

    Neither am I. But I'm not sure they'd need to. They don't even need to strictly reference it. Just clearly show that's how Picard's mentality has gone. If they did bring Q back though I'd want them to digitally de-age DeLancie for a brief scene and then have Q be like "Well haven't I been gone a long time." And flash back as an older version...

    Also consider: Q flashes in. He and Picard share brief barbs though Picard is more only half irritated to see him and considers him with a kind of nostalgic warmth since now, for the first time in their encounters Picard doesn't feel like he has a ship with 1ooo souls on board to protect. Q then sees his dog and the name tag on it saying "No.1" and is instantly like "Say, is this actually Riker? Because if it is I can assure you I had nothing to do with it..."

    Maybe whatever happened to Romulus was the result of some conflict the Q Continuum got involved in and that's how they explain Q's aged condition?
