We’re heading back into the vault to continue with our TNG Rewatch. This week, Starfleet gives command of the Enterprise to a new captain, and Picard disappears with Worf and Dr. Crusher on a secret meeting in “Chain of Command part 1.”
Following last week’s near cliff-hanger ending, we’re faced with Romulan fleets, mad scientists, angry xBs, and entirely too many people who are willing to throw themselves into danger to protect everyone. This week, we wrap up Star Trek: Picard’s first season with Et in Arcadia Ego part 2.
On Coppelius, we find not only an idyllic settlement of synthetics but also intrigue, violence, moral quandaries, and an awfully familiar face or two. Is there death lurking around the corners in Coppelius as the title suggests? If so, what does it mean for the Sirena’s crew? Does the episode actually answer these questions? This week, I’m covering “Et in Arcadia Ego part 1.”
This week, Agnes Jurati wakes up. Soji has a heart to heart with Picard. Santiago Cabrera pulls a Brent Spiner from “Brothers” and “Fistful of Datas.” Elnor and Seven have a moment, and Narissa gets up close and personal with a few xBs. This week, we’re covering “Broken Pieces.”
This week, Picard takes a break from the frenetic action of the first half of the season to recoup in safety with old friends. Hugh and Elnor wrestle with Romulans. Soji has to make some decisions with the help of a new friend. We’re covering ST: Picard, episode 7: “Nepenthe.”
This week, Picard’s intrepid crew finally arrives on the Artifact. Admiral Picard finds a familiar face, and Raffi burns another bridge. Elnor is Elnor, and Soji has a moment. The Romulans continue to scheme because they’re, well, Romulans. We’re covering episode six of Star Trek: Picard.
Star Trek: Picard tries its hand at Mission Impossible, and Picard’s Ethan Hunt may need a little work. Raffi reveals a bit more of her back story, and Seven demonstrates that she has hardly been idle the last several years. This week, we’re headed to Freecloud for “Stardust City Rag.”
This week’s Picard takes us back to the evacuation of Romulan worlds and contrasts it with today’s reality. We also meet another member of Picard’s new crew as well as revisit old faces.
This week, we dig deeper into the Romulan conspiracy and meet the rest of the crew with whom we’ll be spending the rest of the season. As an added bonus, we find out more about why Picard is where he is at this moment. This week, we’re covering “The End is the Beginning.”
In Picard’s second episode, we encounter flashbacks, Romulan infiltrators, more Borg, new technology, and ghosts of the Tal Shiar. Buckle up and make sure your parking brakes are disengaged, folks, because this series is clearly off to the races.
