ugh in general (idk if u like chatting qbt picard but) i worry abt the amount of focus we get on picard & throwbacks compared to really taking advantage of fleshing out a new story and new characters/ideas. AND like picard within this context. But also u were talking before abt elnor and i rly feel like he has so much potential and it makes sense to give him focus and importance like as a key figure picard left behind but also a young new character who has his life ahead of him! So we can
establish someone new in this world that is crumbling, someone connected to picard’s past, but also someone seeing the worls through fresh eyes even though it may appear dull or lacklustre to others… he offers such an important insight and like just jhhh… i love him give him more screentime😭😭😭😭 (sorry anyway xbxjxjjd)
I KNOW. YOU’RE SO RIGHT. what’s really striking to me about picard is that every single character has been chewed up and spit out by the world, and even if people such as picard are still hopeful, they’re all still incredibly haunted and jaded.
ELNOR IS NOT. he’s experiencing the wonder of the galaxy for the first time! he’s excited and hopeful and optimistic! he’s out here on this classic bildungsroman-type journey, which is a perfect way to contrast these other much more haunted characters. he should be at the narrative forefront of this show!!
