We are in a Star Wars lull now. We are between movies and television series. Amid this well deserved break, what is a Star Wars geek to do? We do have the Clone Wars finale season coming up in February so watching the other seasons is an option. There is also Rebels and Resistance I could catch up on. However, much sooner than Season 7 of The Clone Wars is the new Star Trek series Picard premiering on January 23rd. It has almost perfect timing.

I know what you are probably thinking. It’s blasphemous that a Star Wars fanboy, such as myself, would condone Star Trek. The fact of the matter is, I enjoy Star Trek. A lot. I am, and always will be, a bigger Star Wars fan, but Trek still holds a special place in my heart. I did not watch a lot of the original series, but I did watch quite a bit of The Next Generation. Deep Space 9 will always be one of my favorites; I spent my formative Purdue years watching it.

I tried to watch Enterprise but I lost interest. I haven’t watched Discovery yet, but I’ll get to it eventually. However, a Picard series? Yes, I am very interested in a Picard series. I’m not going to play the “which Captain is better” game but Sir Patrick Stewart is such a wonderful actor. I’m very excited to see him reprise one of his most iconic roles.

In fact, a Star Trek movie marathon might be in order. Engage!
