Any start date for ST:P? I'm curious if I will wait until it ends to subscribe, then binge? Or will I subscribe as soon as it starts due to online spoilers?
The sources I read say the end of this year or early 2020 for the start date.
I don't think a discussion of wine is out of place if the track is Star Trek, so maybe they veered off track a bit. Good on you for bringing things back to Picard. Nevertheless the teaser had a bottle of Picard wine. Picard is French. Wine is a big deal in France, even though there are many other geographic areas that make wine.
Selling wine, distributing wine is a good front for traveling to different planets. It is also possible to put things in wine bottles that can be smuggling into places. Almost everything about Picard the program is speculation at this point.
It seems to be accurate to say that past episodes of Star Trek having to do with wine were filmed in Ca. Maybe that will be the case in the future. Who knows? Although I live in Northern California and would prefer them to film wine scenes somewhere around here, so that I could have a "Gorn" spot to visit, I think it would be more appropriate to film in France, but of course there will be budget considerations, and very little is what it seems in the film business.
I had every intention of binge watching Discovery and The Orville, but could not wait and viewed weekly.
