A single sequel is only occasionally a good as the original. Anything #3 and beyond seems to be wasted effort. Star Trek 2009 made the smart move and shifted to an entirely new timeline, which worked out well. The Legend of Jean-Luc Picard had lost its energy well before its demise. For me, it began to fade in one episode, when Picard ordered the ship into battle, then sat down in that living room command center and crossed his legs. All he needed was a coffee table and a newspaper.
