Star Trek Picard: Farewell

If the future is to be saved, then Picard and the others must foil Soong’s last ditch attempt to prevent Renee from boarding the Europa mission.

Star Trek Picard: Hide and Seek

The Borg Queen has incited Soong to attack La Sirena, and she’s even provided him with a batch of drones to assist. But while his friends and allies prepare to defend the ship from the physical threat, Picard must finally face up to the trauma that ultimately shaped his entire life. Continue reading

Star Trek Picard: Mercy

Picard and Guinan have been picked up by an FBI officer who suspects they may be more than simple denizens of the year 2024 – and that they might be plotting to sabotage the Europa mission. Can they talk their way out of this situation? Meanwhile, Seven and Raffi continue the search for Jurati, and Kore presses Soong for the truth about her origins. Continue reading

Star Trek Picard: Monsters

Picard’s body has been treated, but his mind has retreated deep within itself. The only one who can save him is Tallinn, who puts together the technological equivalent of a mind meld to dive into Picard’s mind and guide him back to reality. Meanwhile, Seven and Raffi search for Agnes, who has almost certainly fallen under the control of the Borg Queen. Continue reading

Star Trek Picard: Two of One

It’s the night before the Europa mission, and maintaining the course of history can only happen if Renee Picard is one of the astronauts on the spaceship. To that end, Picard and his crew infiltrate the pre-launch gala in order to keep a close watch on his illustrious ancestor. But Q has sent Adam Soong to disrupt proceedings, while Agnes continues to struggle with the Borg Queen’s presence inside her mind. Continue reading

Renée is due to go on a mission into space in a few days’ time, but her struggles with depression and anxiety mean that she might not make it, and a certain Q seems on hand to discourage her. The omnipotent being also finds time to interfere with the life of Adam Soong, a geneticist looking to find a cure for his daughter’s debilitating condition. Continue reading

Star Trek Picard: Assimilation

Picard and his allies have commandeered a ship and stolen a Borg Queen, but their quest to restore the timeline has only just begun. Now they must successfully travel back to 2024 and find “The Watcher”, the one person who might be able to help them fix the divergence in the timeline. But such high stakes call for some dangerous and risky actions, and Picard’s motley crew may well be called to put their lives on the line.

Star Trek Picard: Penance

With a click of his omnipotent fingers, Q has changed the world. The Federation is gone, and in its place is the cruel Confederation, a human-led regime that seeks to subjugate and destroy alien races. In this reality, Picard is a decorated general, as adored by humanity as he is feared by aliens.

Trapped in this new reality, Picard seeks out his closest allies – all of whom remember the galaxy as it was, and not as it is now. But how can they restore the timeline back to the one they know and love? Continue reading

Star Trek Picard: The Star Gazer

Hello and welcome to another season of Star Trek reviews! You may be wondering why Star Trek Discovery season four didn’t make it onto this blog. Unfortunately, here in the UK the only legitimate way to watch the new season was via Pluto TV, a streaming service that acts like TV of the old days, i.e. programmes are broadcast at a particular time, with no catch-up service or way of recording it for later. Since it’s an online-only thing and not even a real TV channel per se, you can’t record it onto a TiVo box either. At least back in the old days we had recourse to VHS! Continue reading
