Bringing back Jean Luc Picard was the best idea since Deep Space Nine. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this, and we all watched completely enthralled. There are references to past Star Trek outings, and watch out for some visits from old friends, but it was new enough to not lose the attention of the uninitiated. There were so many clever twists and turns throughout the series, that I kept saying "cool!" (to the others' annoyance). So much of it was unexpected yet felt so familiar. Well done to the vast team that brought this all together.
OK, so I should have seen the ending coming, but when it was so drawn out I forgave myself. Roll on series 2.
