Picard

  • Totalitarian Recall: Picard and friends start their ‘Penance’…

    The Stargazer has exploded, but apparently the consequences are rather less final than anticpated. Picard has awoken back at his chateau, but it’s not quite the same as he remembers it and with ‘Q’ arriving, it becomes clear that something is askew… though the almost-omnipotent visitor is less in...
  • Do Not Go Gently: ‘Picard’ Season Two makes it so…

    The Stargazer is on Red Alert, with crew-members rushing to the bridge to defend the ship against an in-person attack. They appear powerless to stop whatever is happening and with major systems compromised, Admiral Jean-Luc Picard orders the ship to self-destruct. Forty-eight hours earlier and Picard is at his...
  • COVID chaos as pandemic cases soar and shut down primetime shows (again)…

    The Omicron Variant of the COVID virus is the unwanted ‘gift’ that keeps on giving – or rather taking… as the surge in the pandemic (including 37,215 new cases in Los Angeles County alone on Thursday) is shutting down or putting on hold a range of entertainment, ranging from...
  • Picard’s ‘Royal’ Rumble: Borg Queen confirmed for Season Two…

    Filming continues on the second season of Paramount+ show Picard.

  • Time to mind the Ps & Qs: Paramount+ teases Picard’s second season…

    Inspired by a story from Star Trek: The Next Generation in which Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard uncomfortably endured a ‘Picard Day’ aboard the Enterprise  (and where the children onboard celebrated his leadership),  the 16th June has been earmarked as the Twenty-First century equivalent. Making it so, it would seem that...
  • Trek’s ‘First Contact Day’: The ‘Q’ for ‘Picard S2’ starts here…

    It has been rumoured for a while, but now there’s confirmation that the second season of Star Trek: Picard will see the return of a character first scene in the very first episode of The Next Generation, Encounter at Farpoint.  Star Trek‘s news-loaded ‘First Contact Day‘  (selected because this...
  • Discovery’s ‘Unification III’ generates a test of both worlds…

    If the Federation is going to be able to fully triangulate the source of the legendary ‘Burn’ that prevented warp-drives working, then they will need the results of a long-range scanning results that were based on the planet of Ni’var.  The problem is that the planet is no longer part...
  • Jean-Luc who’s talking: Picard’s finale offers ‘truth et machina’…

    With Picard imprisoned and in failing health, Romulan forces speeding to annihilate the planet and the Synths preparing to light a beacon that could destroy all organic life, it appears that it could be the worst of all worlds. Narek and the crew of the La Sirena reluctantly find...
  • Picard’s Broken Pieces is not quite sum of its parts…

    As the crew of La Sirena argue about their next move, it seems that the broken pieces of their relationships will have to be mended quickly rather than perfectly. As understandable distrust keeps its foothold, it’s time for some frank conversations, stark confessions and revelations about the past. Meanwhile...
