They never even got around to curing male-pattern baldness!

My absolute favorite moment on TNG* was Picard, “restored” to his proper age after a brief turn as a child, running a furtive hand over his once again bald noggin.

FFS, they should have just titled the article "Patrick Stewart sits in random nondescript chair.   Social media set ablaze".

To boldly bait where no clickbait has gone before...

I'm fine with this take on Picard.  This series is going ahead, fine, whatever, but I needed a reason to grasp onto Picard as the central character nearly three decades since the original series ended.  TNG has not aged well for me at all.  It ties ENTERPRISE as my least favorite iteration save for a few standout episodes.  So if they're bringing back Picard, it should be for a reason and (sorry) that shouldn't be to helm another ship into the great unknown.  This premise sounds...interesting.  On that basis alone, I'm incredibly intrigued and will now keep an eye out for its premiere.

I had successfully blocked out the supernova that the Romulans apparently never bothered to observe and that magically travelled through subspace to destroy a planet light years away. Why did you have to remind me, CBS?

I'm enticed by the crossover potential. Since "the red matter" is a self-congratulatory, some might say masturbatory, nod by the great J.J. Abrams to the creative genius that is the great J.J. Abrams, maybe Picard can try to maintain the fragile peace among the few surviving Romulan peoples while everyone scrambles about for the secret documents to the Rambaldi Device, maybe even bringing agent Sidney Bristow into the 24th and a half century to help look for it. The supernova could have released interstellar Cloverfield monsters which our heroes have to constantly fight off. And then, just when victory seems within our grasp, just when some hope for a bright and prosperous future presents itself... Felicity cuts her hair.

I am a big TNG fan - especially Picard.  Folding Picard into the Abramsverse has me concerned.  Is this an inventive new direction that will take PIcard into a whole new realm, or is this AFTER M*A*S*H?

Picard was already folded into this universe with the publication of the IDW series that came out at the time of the first Chris Pine reboot.  Whether that becomes cannon is anyone's guess.

I found the concept interesting enough to at least give it a look.

Tying it into Nu-Trek may have killed that interest altogether.

Well, I'll be on board - any excuse to watch Patrick Stewart chew up the scenery as Picard is good with me! 
Tying it in to NuTrek and the destruction of Romulus doesn't bother me in itself - my interpretation of that would be seeing how the event affected the Prime universe. (My assumption though... we shall see!)

No, what I'm not keen on, and this is true for all iterations of Trek, are any more political wranglings and power struggles in the Romulan, or indeed Klingon, empires. That stuff leaves me cold.

But I suppose that might be like asking for more Star Wars without lightsabers or The Force!
