As far as timelines - the last time we saw the original timeline (Next Generation, Deep Space 9, etc.) was the last episode of Enterprise. The "prime" timeline that the Leonard Nimoy Spock came forward from in the first JJ Abrahms movie, and that the new shows take place in is not that same timeline as the shows and movies before it (as much as the creators want you to believe it is). This is due to a licensing issue stemming from when Viacom split with Paramount. The movies and shows are forced to make everything in their content a certain percentage different from the original shows because none of them have the original license. So, no.. the Picard in the in the Picard series is technically from a different universe (with the helping to save the Romulans etc.) than the Picard we all grew up with.
Discussed in more detail here.
More recently things are now back in a position where they can revive the original license and start using the original continuity, but Paramount is still stuck in the contracts with Bad Robot who has the alternate license for the time being. Star Trek is technically a multiverse even when ignoring the kelvin timeline.
CBS and Paramount officially ended the Kelvin timeline after Star Trek Beyond. They said none of the television series would take place in the Kelvin timeline. As a fan thing, if we fans want to refer to the material we love as "Prebrams" that's more appropriate than calling it Kelvin material. Officially, Discovery takes place before the Kelvin timeline happened. So when they jump 900 years into the future, that happened before the Kelvin timeline. It's prime timeline stuff. It's also terrible and not worth watching based on watching every episode of every season. I know I'm splitting hairs, but I just wanted to clear that up.

I'm gonna be blunt. This looks like shit. Total and utter garbage. A third person cover shooter? Really, that's the legacy of AvP and AvP2? (Don't get me started on A:CM)
Yup. It mostly looks like shite. Mostly.

Considering most moments where you have to give a response have a timer to them, it can actually be difficult to carefully choose a response at times due to still fumbling with the lore in your head; I mean this in a good way.
Response timer? Like Alpha Protocol? I fricken hate that.
Me too. I read English as fast as I would read out loud, which is relatively slow reading speed. Dialogue timers are a real kick in the balls to people like myself. Luckily the hilarious flyting in Valhalla is easy enough

Guys what is the gameplay like? Is it a proper RPG? Is it more linear like Fallout4, where you think you have choices but you actually have none? Combat? Exploration? Fun factor?

Ooh. Friend snagged me a 3060ti, can't wait to see this game all purdy-like (instead of on a 970).
Got me a 3080 Ultra FTW3. Looking forward to seeing this game tonight.

OK , Seriously ! How the fuk does it matter when they admitted they have almost no cards available ??
EVGA is the only site even remotely giving a chance to buyers with their cue-based line system... but no one else has seen 1 card last longer than 2 minutes before bots have snapped them all up.
So literally they probably won't be having to give away more than ~ 100 games for free..??
Nvidia has seriously lost their mind this release...

While I laud CDPR's efforts, I remain unconvinced Galaxy is a stable product. Whenever I periodically launch the app, my games from other services keep disappearing even though I've synchronized with those services (GOG games are the only games that consistently appear in Galaxy without problems). It then turns into an hour-long ordeal of relinking the services and then figuring out why games I own on those services do not appear. Out of frustration, I stop using Galaxy. This pattern repeats itself every time I launch Galaxy. I am not prepared to have to deal with this headache at a purchasing level. For all I know, my money could get lost in the ether between Galaxy and the store. In the case of Steam, issuing a Paypal chargeback typically results in Valve banning an account from making additional purchases.

Oh I forgot to also mention,.........
R.I.P. Elder Scrolls = now dumbed down to run at the lowest console denominator .
I think TES has been on console since Oblivion.
