STAR TREK PICARD: SEASON 1 EPISODE 7, NEPENTHE


Hi Trekkers Spacerguy here,  I've been away on shoreleave  but as Susan commented its time to catch up. unfortunately my transporter malfunctioned and I got waylayed by a Romulan agent but I've managed to escape and here I am. 😐

Star Trek Picard, In the 7th episode Nepenthe, our trusty captain Picard and Soji safely transport to the planet Nepenthe with no mishaps getting away from the Borg Artefact. (I'm trying not to get emotional but) It must be testing beaming across the galaxy 40,000 light years using spatial trajector Borg technology.

PICARD AND SOJI


We know our friends escaped the evil clutches of Narissa who was Nareks scheming Romulan sister. These two were a cunning team plotting sneakily and quietly aboard the Cube. Looking back we can enjoy how much it meant to Picard to have escaped safely now back with some old and trusted friends, Troi, Riker and daughter Kestra which they're writing about on the New York Times! 😁

NARISSA AND NAREK SCHEMING


Soji on the other hand isn't so sure. its not like she can rely on her "gut" instincts right? After all she has no reason to believe anything is real cos like shes been programmed, "activated" and learns, oh well I'm an android or synthetic? So do lets be honest trekkers how would you feel discovering such feelings and being only a couple years old?


PICARD PLEADS WITH SOJI


As the rest of La Sirena's crew attempt to join them, Picard helps Soji make sense of her recently unlocked memories. Its a rough trek but heck burdens of comand, 😐  Meanwhile, Hugh and Elnor are left on the Borg cube and must face Narissa who no angel, so lets take a closer look at her.

COMMODORE OH BRAINWASHES JURANTI


STARFLEET SECURITY COMMODORE OH
DEEP UNDERCOVER TAL SHIAR GENERAL
FOR THE EVIL ZHAT VASH


Tal Shiar Colonel and undercover operative for the ghastly Zhat Vash (keeper of secrets) Remember Comodore Oh? All is not what it seems in Trekland. She seemed logical right until we saw her mindmeld Juranti and bug her. Now we know why Juranti turned killer. I figure beside being a Romulan spy for the grim Zhat Vash, Commodore O is a dark General Sorceress but lets not forget Narissa.

While Picard is playing happy families on planet Nepenthe ask yourself:

HOW CAN STARFLEET RECOVER NOW ITS BEEN INFILTRATED BY ROMULANS?


THE CONCLAVE OF EIGHT WAS DESIGNED TO ATTACK MARS AND INFLUENCE FEDERATION DECISIONS, SEVERELY BANNING SYNTHETIC LIFEFORMS from existing in the federation but why?





A.Whats Commodore Oh's next move? Whats Riker's Picard's and Soji's? Wheres Seven?
B.Narek is working under Narissa's orders given to her by STARFLEETS DIRECTOR OF SECURITY COMMODORE OH, who's a spy TREKKERS!!!! A cursed Spy, a mole, a dog, a mut, a national federation disaster because WHY? She a Tal Shiar General!!!
C.Commodore Oh plan was to obtain information from Dahj on Biological androids now TURNING TO NARISSA THE PLAN FOCUSES ON SOJI. NAREK TO GET THE REQUIRED INFORMATION.
D.Once Starfleet gains the power to trace and track biological androids thus eliminating them and  curtailing civil liberties within the galaxy, will they want to relinquish this power?

LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, TREKKERS!

THE IMPOSSIBLE BOX - STAR TREK PICARD

It's like Picard's crew finally found their footing with all this deep space harebrained alien diplomacy. So is it likely Star Trek Picard is finally onto something with The Impossible Box? Here we're see Dahj sister also an android alive and ready to spring into action..

STARSHIP LA SIRENA BRIDGE CREW


The new starship "La Sirena" commanded by Captain Rios looks really cool too. Its got CGI rendering, real convincing computer panels and a special holodeck hideout for Picard when he needs to strategize. Now with CBS/Amazon Prime updating the Star Trek Universe without making a complete hash of Treks timeline...
NAREK AND SOJI

So much seems right about it. Alot hinges on Data's daughter Soji who's still a beautiful mystery. Narek's trickery on the Artefact fooling around with Soji meant he was a no good Romulan spy.

HUGH AND PICARD

 Finally Soji cops onto herself and finds Picard, Hugh and Elnor in time to do a runner..... and they beam-out from the Borg Queens what ever. Elnor and Hugh face the music on  the Borg Cube defending king and country so honorably meeting their deaths, parting is always such sweet sorrow my trekker friends.

1. Do you get a sense of pride Elnor stayed to the end to defend Picard and Soji (Data's daughter) so they could beam to safety?
2. Now Soji has become self-activated will she use her positronic DNA to resurrect her father Data?
3. Will Picard want revenge for Hugh's death?
4. Can anyone fix Starfleet now that its falling to pieces and we don't have a galaxy class starship or commander to bandaid the failing United Federation of Planets?  

LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, TREKKERS

STAR TREK PICARD - Stardust City Rag

"Stardust City Rag" 
Season 1 Episode 5
Director : Johnathan Frakes
Stardate: 2386/2399

Hey trekkers Spacerguy here. Star Trek Picard is showing us the before and after Trek timelines with characters crossing paths and slugging it out in the galaxy. Parents be warned this episode has some might say a "Tarantino bloodfest" We see the Seven Domes where Seven of Nine - Jeri Ryan  (from Voyager) gets her evil on some aliens.

PICARD (Patrick Stewart) SEVEN (Jeri Ryan)


Why I hear you cry? simple really. Its payback, cos like shes far from all right with dark violence, so now shes angry and besides Federation justice on Vergessen? Forget about it. The beloved Federation has fallen my Trekkie friends. I'm right aren't I?  Meanwhile Picard's scheming is taking shape aboard the La Sirena with plans to "save the galaxy" So he's in a ropey Allo Allo pirate costume spouting hazeri values taking on renegades. Sevens cold blooded murdering - whats going on trekkers? Doesn't Picards Starfleet pomp count anymore?


EVAN EVAGORA


 The year is 2386 so like did Lieutenant Itcheb really deserve to be tortured..? All that horrible drilling as that cruel wretched Bjayzi toyed with her ex-borg victim. She harvested and detached Itcheb's cybernetic devices which identified who he was... Borg! (Not that Picard,- (Patrick Stewart) Seven (Jeri Ryan) or Itcheb (Manu Intiraymi) ( ever had any choice ) Poor Itcheb (from Voyager now ex-Borg looked so miserable with Seven except here was someone crying out  for the end. His optical implant is gone - theres really too much damage done. Seven is torn but finishes the job putting Itcheb to rest.

SEVEN AND ITCHEBS FINAL MOMENT


 Only the game isnt over, it appears Bjayzi has more loose ends to harvest. ..... Seven, determined, is not going to let Bjayzi get away. (trekkies we can whine about the horrors but facts are facts, outerspace is a cold unfriendly place. You'll know when you get ur own starship and besides, whatever happened to an eye for an eye? Why didn't more of us turn out for Star Trek Beyond?

Integrity, intelligence, courage, imagination, and determination are core qualities of Starfleet Officers which sounds fine but doesn't wash at the box office, just compare Star Trek box office to Star Wars numbers.

PICARD GLEAMING FACTS FROM MADDOX


Time runs out for Maddox who's surprisingly been on the run. In a crazy twist, now its Juranti time to turn killer. The guy everyones been after spills the beans before croaking it, unconscious and all that other shoulda coulda woulda hazeri until he dies on the table.

FREECLOUD


Beaming down to freecloud in cornball outfits was like a duh what? moment for me. The federations most revered captain wants to play games? Like seriously this is the plan?  Seven's plan meant using herself as bait and with her Starfleet - Borg experience lure that Bjayzi evil witch out into the open. Now in light of Picard and Seven striving towards their "humanity" Here was an act of retribution fuelled by pure murderous revenge - wouldn't you say?

SEVEN KILLS BJAYZI
QUESTIONS:

1.Is Star Trek Picard delivering a new exciting trend boldly going where no-one has gone before?
2. Are you saddened by itcheb's death? Did Bjayzi get what she deserved?
3. Star Wars doesn't pull any punches why should Star Trek?
 4. How could Dr Maddox really not know what Bjayi was dealing in?
5. Why doesn't Picard not get recognised all the time?
6. Why doesn't Rios ship the "La Sirena's" bridge not have an ad-blocker?
7. Is the United Federation of Planets as an institution failing?
