AI Picard 2 — Has Picard met his Match?
fanfic has never been so lazy
system> Hello you MASTERFUL BEAST of SCIFI WRITING PEDAGOGY! Are you ready to write some scifi script mashups?
assistant> Yes, I am always ready to engage in some creative writing! What kind of sci-fi script mashups are you thinking of?
user> What do you think a story involving The Doctor docking his TARDIS to The Enterprise because he is in a time lord metacrisis, then when he enters The Enterprise, he sees Captain Picard in the docking bay, but The Doctor can’t control himself and immediately regenerates into A SECOND CAPTAIN PICARD. How does the story begin, grow, change, evolve, and resolve?
assistant> That sounds like an interesting premise! Here’s how I would envision the story:
BEGINNING: The Doctor is frantically trying to stabilize his TARDIS as he battles a time lord metacrisis. Suddenly, he materializes in what he thinks is the correct location, only to discover that he has accidentally docked his TARDIS on the USS Enterprise.
GROWTH: As The Doctor exits his TARDIS, he sees Captain Picard in the docking bay and, in a moment of weakness, regenerates into a second Captain Picard. The Doctor’s companions, who are with him, are shocked and confused, unsure of how to handle the sudden appearance of two Picards. Meanwhile, the Enterprise crew is equally confused and suspicious of the strange visitors.
CHANGE: As The Doctor and his companions try to explain their presence on the Enterprise, they realize that the timeline has been altered by the Doctor’s regeneration, and they must work together with the Enterprise crew to fix it before it’s too late.
EVOLUTION: The two Picards are initially at odds with one another, each trying to assert their dominance and prove that they are the real Captain. However, they eventually come to a mutual understanding and work together to help The Doctor and the Enterprise crew resolve the timeline disruption.
RESOLUTION: In the end, The Doctor and his companions are able to fix the timeline, and the two Picards are merged back into one Captain. The Enterprise crew and The Doctor part ways, each with a newfound respect for one another and a deeper understanding of their respective timelines and universes.
user> Can you rewrite our story using The Story Circle with maximum emotional payoff?
assistant> Sure thing! Here’s a potential rewrite of the story using Dan Harmon’s “Story Circle” storytelling model:
PROTAGONIST: The Doctor and his companions enter the Enterprise in search of help with a time lord metacrisis.
NEED: The Doctor needs to fix his metacrisis and restore the timeline to prevent major disruptions.
GO: Through an accidental regeneration, The Doctor becomes a second Captain Picard, and must work with the Enterprise crew to navigate the timeline disruptions.
SEARCH: The Doctor and his companions try to explain their presence on the Enterprise, while the two Picards struggle to establish authority and mediate the timeline disruptions.
FIND: The Doctor and his companions discover that they must work with the Enterprise crew to fix the timeline disruptions, bringing the two Picards to a mutual understanding.
TAKE: The Doctor and Enterprise crew take on the task of fixing the timeline disruptions, with the help of the two Picards working together.
RETURN: The Doctor and his companions return to their universe and timeline, leaving the Enterprise crew with a newfound respect for them and a deeper understanding of time and space. The Doctor’s metacrisis is resolved, and all timelines are restored.
CHANGE: The Doctor undergoes a transformation, realizing the importance of humility and cooperation in times of crisis.
RESOLVE: The Doctor and Enterprise crew, along with the two merged Picards, celebrate their success and newfound connection before parting ways.
Throughout the story, the emotional payoff can come through the growth and transformation of The Doctor and the relationships he forms with the Enterprise crew and the two Picards. As he learns to cooperate and rely on others, he gains a deeper appreciation for the importance of teamwork and trust. The bond he forms with the Enterprise crew and the merged Picard creates a sense of emotional payoff and catharsis for the audience.
user> Can you write the characters, including The Doctor’s companion (make up a name and personality), and the crew of The USS Enterprise as supporting cast? Full episode length treatment in screenplay format please with oscar winning scenes across all 4 acts and across an A plot and a B plot.
assistant> Sure, I can definitely write up a full episode length treatment for this! Here it is:
TITLE: Star Trek: The Doctor and The Two Picards
EXT. SPACE - TARDIS
The TARDIS materializes next to the USS Enterprise. The Doctor and his companions exit.
INT. TARDIS - CONSOLE ROOM
The Doctor checks the console, clearly in distress.
Something’s wrong… my time lord metacrisis…
Doctor, what’s happening?
I’m regenerating… but it’s not a full regeneration…
What does that mean?
It means my timeline is in danger… and I need help.
The TARDIS door opens and they exit.
EXT. USS ENTERPRISE - DOCKING BAY
As they exit, they see Captain Picard standing next to a group of crew members. The Doctor approaches him.
Captain, I need your help… I’m experiencing a time lord metacrisis.
Doctor, we don’t know you. Why should we help you?
Please, there’s no time! We need to stop a potential disaster before it’s too late.
Captain, I’m MIA. I know this all seems sudden, but please, we need your help.
(pausing to consider)
Very well. Welcome aboard the USS Enterprise.
As the Doctor and his companions walk inside the Enterprise, an alarm sounds.
Captain! Security has reported a second Captain Picard on the ship!
Everyone turns to see a second Captain Picard entering the docking bay.
INT. USS ENTERPRISE - CORRIDOR
The Doctor and his companions follow Captain Picard and the team to the bridge. They arrive to find a heated exchange between the two Picards.
The timeline is destabilizing…
(to PICARD 2)
Who are you? Have you created some sort of clone?
I don’t know what’s happening, but I know I’m real.
Please, let me help. I think I have a way to stabilize the timeline.
Very well, Doctor. I will give you a chance.
(Getting to work)
We need to patch together a temporal stabilizer. Can you spare some of your engineering team?
Mr. Worf, assemble a team to work with the Doctor and his companions on the stabilizer.
As the team works on the stabilizer, the two Picards are sent to sickbay to be analyzed.
(turning to the Doctor)
So what’s your plan now?
I think the stabilizer is working. But we have to get to the root of the timeline disruptions. That means we need to get to the bottom of who or what is causing the timeline disruptions.
Then let’s investigate.
As they make their way to the second Picard’s holding room, they hear a noise coming from the engine room.
Someone’s there. We should investigate.
INT. USS ENTERPRISE - ENGINE ROOM
The Doctor, Mia and a team of engineers enter the engine room. They see a figure operating the engine.
Halt! Who are you? What are you doing here?
The figure turns around to reveal that it’s a rogue android who’s tampering with the engine.
Ha! You fools will never stop me!
(to the engineers)
Quickly, stop him!
A fight ensues. After a struggle, they manage to capture the android.
The timeline may be destabilizing, but I will not let anyone disrupt it!
As they return to the bridge, they find that the two Picards have been merged into one, normal-looking Captain.
Doctor, I don’t know what you’ve done, but you’ve saved me.
It was nothing.
Captain, the timeline has stabilized. All systems are back to normal.
(to the Doctor and Mia)
Thank you. You both went above and beyond the call of duty.
Just doing our job, Captain.
INT. USS ENTERPRISE - GALLEY
The Doctor, Mia, Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew celebrate their success with a well-deserved meal.
(raising his glass)
To cooperation and trust.
(raising his glass as well)
To science and exploration.
(raising her glass too)
And to the wonderful days to come.
As they clink their glasses, they look at each other, smiling.
FADE TO BLACK.

PREVIOUS EPISODE: “The Silence of the Stars” The Doctor and his companions encounter a colony of humans who have been living in isolation from the rest of the universe for centuries.

They encounter an alien race that is determined to use the Guardian to alter history and bring about their own reign, and the Doctor is forced to make a choice between stopping them and preserving the natural flow of time.
ONGOING PLOT: The Doctor’s encounters with powerful time-altering entities and organizations continue to add to the complexity of the Time Lord’s personal journey.
