TIL that Picard has a $9 Million budget, and Discovery $8 Million (per episode). Given how much of Picard takes place in present-day surroundings, I'm surprised about that. I guess a lot of Picard's budget went into paying the well-known actors (which, y'know, is good)? Or to put it another way, I guess Discovery's use of relative unknowns means their locations and costumes can look just as good at a lower budget, despite having to build *all* locations themselves?

@uliwitness ouch. Just a smidge up from the old episode budgets (TNG / B5 era) 🤯
