STAR TREK PICARD WINS TREKKER FANS

DATA
WHY ARE YOU STALLING CAPTAIN?

PICARD STAR TREK, Episode 1
"Remembrance"
Production number: 101
First aired: 23 January 2020

PICARD
I DON'T WANT THE GAME TO END



The new Picard series is receiving trekker jubilation faster than light speed. First of all isn't it great seeing friendly Captain Picard again? Now 14 years on, retired Admiral, Jean Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) is aboard the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D at poker. All is not what it seems in "Ten Forward" because we're seeing Picard's dream..... in a 2399 plotline. Isn't this a warp back in time?

ADMIRAL JEAN LUC PICARD AT MARS 

Studying Picard is positronic superwhiz "Data" (Brent Spiner) as they both bet the odds and play poker. Data beats Picard with a flush only its not over 'cos like suddenly beyond the spatial safety of the galaxy class flagship, Mars lights up on fire.

The new Star Trek Picard premiere is filled with plenty of action packed entertainment and a stylish cgi USS Enterprise-d starship which veers over to one side and when Data disappears Picard wakes up. Its fair to say enemy rogue androids set the thread in this first episode  "Remembrance." These synthetics move in for the kill targeting Mars snuffing out lives without even opening hailing frequencies!

USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701-D

A matrix of mystery surrounds the synthetics attacking Mars and the strike force Dahj encounters in this episode.  Why Federation outrage ensues, Hunting sentient "synthetics" to extinction was unheard of right?

DAJI'S LOVER DIES


Picard quit Starfleet soon after because, as he says to the rather annoying reporter in anger, "Starfleet was no longer Starfleet."  The cinematic effects are pretty cool blazing away through the Enterprise-D windows. I have to admit Picard has cool dreams, haha


DAJI FIGHTS FEDERATION ASSASSIN IN MORTAL COMBAT 

There is I have to admit a lot of back story here with strong characters. Picards dreams trying to reach out. Greater Boston area and then Picard's Chateau. Dahj (Isa Briones) is the first intended victim. Curiously like an android possessed she activates and slaughters her would be assassins, but like she kicked their butts -


PICARD TELLS DAJI SHES DATAS DAUGHTER



"ahhh she's activating!!!" meaning Dahj killer android instincts come online. Tragically she never knew about her "synthetic" abilities or came to grips before the reality of her android identity is broken to her by Jean luc Picard.

PICARD WATCHES POWERLESS TO HELP


Of course time catches up and the killer Federation assassins zone in on Picard's and Dahj lifeform co-ordinates. Some might say running isn't the admirals specialty anymore, so keeping up is a major drag on the old guy. Picards face contorts in shock as he realizes Dahj is fighting a losing battle against the synthetics.

DAJI DIES


 Theres little he can do and Dahj fights moving cutting through the air faster than you can see until one of the Federation assassins gets her....she melts and explodes dying horribly before Picards eyes......

BORG CUBE HARVESTED BY ROMULANS


The awesome logic of this epic tale is androids are made in pairs. Data, Lor, makes sense right? Turns out Dahj has a twin sister Soji,(Briones) aboard a Borg Cube run by Romulans packed with warbirds.

SOJI  IS DAJI SISTER


A. What did you make of Picards pet pit bull, No 1?
B. Do you get a sense that alien borg cube is lurking in deep space for a reason?
C. The Federations moral compass has changed, assasins out for blood, is not very diplomatic or, "we come in peace" friendly, is it?
D. Data emotion chip kept a tight reign on experiencing terror and overt emotionalism. Do you think Soji has an emotion chip?
E. Whatever happened to Bruce Maddox?
PICARD AND NO1
THERES NO LEGACY AS RICH AS HONESTY,
WHO SAID THAT NO 1?

Live Long and Prosper trekkers.

    1. Picard is reliving a past timeline aboard the USS Enterprise-D 6 years before Mr Data who died in Star Trek Nemisis. Star Trek has lots of priceless timelines, Diane

  6. I can watch it on the Sci-Fi channel so i am so glad about that! This show seems excellent...much better than STD. Patrick Stewart loves pitbulls and is trying to set the record straight that they are not evil dogs. I love that he calls him #1. I was surprised by the Federation becoming less open to the point of killing all things Data. Reminded me of everyone thinking all Germans were Nazis. I was saddened when she died but it will be good to see what her sister will be up to. The Borg cube was a surprise and there is something brewing. I can't wait to see the next episode

  7. Worldwide in 200 countries Amazon prime, CBS all access, Sci-Fi channel and Crave Tv. Stewart is getting the biggest Star Trek cheque of his entire career with this one. The pit bull terrier was his idea which follows Stewart around like a true friend.

    A man alone with a dog sets up certain

  11. I definitely need to get CBS Access. In fact after I post this, it will be my next stop. Thanks for the gentle nudge...I had it on my to do list but now, it'll get done sooner than later. Thanks!

  12. I must admit, rather sheepishly... I haven't watched it yet.

    I have so much to catch up on with Trek. I may not actually get to Picard for a while. But to your broader point, yes, I'm thrilled the character is back!

  13. It's kind of poetically appropriate for the Romulans to be living in a Borg cube. The first time we saw damage done by the Borg was also the big Romulan comeback.
