On August 4, 2018, Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, stunned fans around the world when he announced he would be returning to a new Star Trek series, reprising his role as the beloved captain.

Now, it seems production is moving forward on the revival.


Stewart tweeted out the first look behind the scenes of the series' writing process.


Stewart's tweet shows a picture of himself working around the writers table with the caption:

"The journey has begun. Kirsten Beyer, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, Diandra Pendleton-Thompson, James Duff, and yours truly. #StarTrek"

Trekkies were, as expected, overjoyed.













Of course, there was also the question of what the whole group was looking at.




As is so often the case with fandoms, many people had some suggestions for the new series.






Some ideas were better than others...



The series is expected to premiere on CBS or its streaming service CBS All-Access in 2019.

Until then, we'll just have to be content watching Stewart's announcement over and over again.

On the internet, people tend to say things they likely would not in the real world. The anonymity of a forum or comment section--composed only of verbal contributions beneath made up names--compels us to socialize with less inhibition; we take more risks with the peers we can't see in the flesh.
