ST: Picard is hardly perfect but at least doesn't make any of the huge errors that Discovery did. It's not exactly the Star Trek we remember of old, but at least it doesn't yell "abandon all hope" from the bell-tops, and shows us a glimmer of what made Star Trek the beloved show that it was. It's flawed in a way that none of the old shows were flawed but it's not bad.
Any of the huge errors like what? Being anti everything that made Trek Trek?
Like going from action scenes serve to advance the plot only when it is necessary to the reverse where the plot is only there as filler to set up the next action scenes? Check
Like going from an intellectual work engaging your brain and rational compassion to an emotional work giving you an emotional roller coaster ride filled with irrational negative emotions instead? Check
Like going from violence as an absolute last resort to violence everywhere as much as possible? Check
Like going from a humanity that has "made it" and is mature to a humanity as worse or even worst than today's? Check
Like going from an uplifting show that gave you hope for the future of humanity and its potential to a depressing one that rubs your face in all the shit of humanity instead? Check
Like going from episodic to serialized instead? Check
Like going from a calm style of direction and filming that emphasized talking heads to one that emphasizes the opposite? Check
Stopping here, I once did an exhaustive list and could go on and on and on. But you get the idea.
Nu/Anti Trek formula in a nutshell:
Take what the soul of Trek was, DO THE EXACT OPPOSITE, keep the same branding and tropes.
Watch Poocard again, it does the exact same thing as the STD infection, it's pure Anti-Trek, all the way.
