STAR TREK PICARD - ET IN ARCADIA EGO PART 2


Hi Trekkers, Hold on to your communicators Trekkies, the finale of Picard for season 1 wraps with some powerful if not fascinating messages. Trekkers are debating over the shows continuity at IMDB. Patrick Stewart is looking forward to returning to work.





Speculation exists about Seven of Nine being a Pansexual? Why not says Jeri Ryan. In her defense, I believe her Borg implants are just exploring her sexuality. Good and bad apart it was Data (who saved Picard in TNG Nemesis) wanted to cash in his positronic microchips like a human. 😁 The real terminology is collection of sophisticated neural nets and heuristic algorithms elevating beyond status of robot or machine.

So like our metal friend talks about death and completing his human journey which gives us a bitter sweet farewell to Star Treks celebrated celebrity android, Brent Spiner. I didn't want to see him go again. I wonder will we see Lore return? Trek's like born out of love said Alec Kurtzman. All is not what it seems on planet Coppelius.

Everyone hates us, we have no home, dont belong anywhere. says Elnor to Seven - Am I better off? I'm an ex-thief, I dont belong anwhere - so put a phaser to my head and get it over with. Elnor : Cos "I'd miss you"



NARISSA AND NAREK

Meanwhile Romulan Narek creeps around the Borg cube and runs into his sister Narissa. I guess justice is served when Seven pushes Narissa down the Borg Cube abyss. Not quite a Darth Vader flinging the Emperor down the reactor shaft moment but still quite satisfying.


SOJI TURNS THE SIGNAL OFF OPENING THE ALIEN CORRIDOR
FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION




 We know Daji was snuffed out by the Dhat Vash terminators leaving her twin to battle it out while Picard follows with the La Sirena crew. So like Soji who wasn't all bad? She came through in the end and acted in time just like Dr. Altan Inigo Soong who must have felt a bit betrayed to ice one of his own treasured artificial lifeforms. At the end Captain Riker turns up to slug it out with the Romulans.

DR SOONG IS UNIMPRESSED WITH HIS ANDROID
ITS TIME 


I mean everyone's been so on edge over the existence of higher synthetic beings in the universe. Including Dr Soong. How would Data have reacted to these Federation revelations I wonder?



Try explaining to paranoid Romulans but considering all the action, mythology, androids, Zhat Vash, Borgs on the loose and sneaky Romulan traitors and sexy Alien babes fighting it out, what makes this better is the crashed Borg artefact which Narissa is trying to engage.Some might feel sweet justice is served when Jeri Ryan - Seven of Nine kicks Narissa down the Borg Cube abyss sending her screaming to her death. How did you feel about Narissa's final scene?

THIS IS FOR HUGH!

SPACE ORCHID

It really was touch and go for Picard's starship and Juranti. The alien space orchid motives were clear and the Romulan Fleet orbiting planet Coppelius (aka Ghulion 4)led by Commodore Oh meant one thing - mass paraside for synthetic lifeforms. Episode 10 unites Captain Rikers Federation at an intersection with the deadly Romulans Fleet of Warbirds who see the light when Picards reasoning with Soji succeeded and the rift is sealed, whoo hoo!  Season 1 trekkers.


PICARD AND JURANTI

RIKER AND COMMODORE OH CALL A TRUCE



Peace in our galaxy? At least Picard's and Juranti breathe a sigh of relief and what about civil rights for androids? These Synthetics lifeforms forced disparate characters out into the open to face their greatest fears. Friend or Faux? we should thank the them?

LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, MY TREKKER FRIENDS

  2. Your funny EC thanks for visiting, still this episode took time to review I didn't include the bit where Picard is regenerated by Dr Soong. I guess there wasn't enough of Datas technological molecular neural nets in real time to do that for him.

  3. They managed to tie up most of the loose ends for the season. We could see Picard's ending coming. They practically telegraphed it in the first couple episodes.

    1. It takes time to get to know the new crew Liz, Star Trek has always been about having faith in the power of love, goodness which yields excellence and curiosity.

  5. Narissa deserved a great send off which she got at 7's boot.

  6. The Romulans mysterious infiltration of Starfleet took me by complete surprise, I was amazed double agent Oh got away with it
