    I rolled my eyes hard at the end but I get it.

    My gut feeling is there is a LOT of internal politics going on at CBS/ viacom and it'll be down to whether they get the rights to certain things. If they do then they've set themselves up nicely to just crack on with what we ended on.

    From what I can gather the show has been a critical success but hasn't pulled in the numbers needed to get US viewers on CBS Access. Coupled with Netflix really lowballing them on international rights fees they either have to go in hard and making it a prime time TV show - which means that the end is perfect as they can just carry on without needing back-story - OR that's it until the rights ownership is sorted and we get Picard to tie us over.

    Has this also killed the Section 31 spin off?
