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?

STAR TREK PICARD - ET IN ARCADIA EGO

Hi Trekkers, I hope everyone's enjoying Picard's Patrick Stewart trek through the stars so far 'cos like when Captain Rios Santiago Cabrera starship the La Sirena arrives at Soji's Isa Briones homeworld, all is not what it seems. It appears Narek has followed Rios 25 light years in 15 mins, who attacks and spins out of control. Maybe Narek  Harry Treadaway trying to restore his honor being a Zhat Vash washout and all.

25 LIGHT YEARS


Its just like ol times when Picard gives his speech on morality bit and thats when real problems kick in. So here they all are with the orchid space  thing and to liven things up 7of9's Jeri Ryan Borg cube appears ready to kick ass, whoo hoo! except emm nope.... Everyone gets their butts kicked by the Alien ship.

NAREK, CAPTAIN RIOS, 7 OF 9 CUBE




Upon reflection Coppelius is Soji's planet robot world for her android kin. The reality is the Romulans fear that a powerful synthetic civilisation will wipe out all organic life and this might not be just paranoia... and the Synthetics might welcome it.  Anyway Rios ship and the cube plunge to the planet. Finally an older, "eccentric Data"  Dr. Altan Inigo Soong Brent Spiner appears with his team of androids.

SOJI AND DR SOONG


What do you think of the whole AI topic playing out. Do you believe theres a good case for A.I. existence in the universe?

SYNTHETICS


Remember Dr Chris Maddox murdered by the Blonde Doctor Juranti Alison Pill? She and Maddox were lovers..for years...not just a one time thing.... yet she really iced him good. Why?



MADDOX  C'EST LA VIE

STAR TREK PICARD - BROKEN PIECES

Hi trekkers. In Star Trek Picard's "broken pieces" we witness a rare Romulan ceremony designed to probe minds with the stark Truth of the Zhat Vash. Be warned emotions do run sky high here. So like watching ten lovely babes go crazy, isn't everyone's idea of high fiving around the Mutara Nebula. (If you catch my drift.) Picards got the best line though "Fear is the destroyer!"  AIA" the planet where all the boogie man stuff  happens is in a system with these mysterious eight stars! To be honest trekkers, there is a depth on IMDB with mixed emotional outbursts about this episode.

ZHAT VASH CEREMONY


You either love this place or hate it. Anyway at the start we're given some interesting clues. Commodore Oh's chanting puts her chosen subjects through some fairly twisted mind destroying Zhat Vash paces.



 The ladies grab their heads as their minds warp horrified by the truth reaching them at lightspeed. Only two are strong enough to survive the test, Narissa and Auntie.The rest go stark raving mad clearly unable to face reality.... but why I hear you cry? why oh why? The fact is they've learned the truth of the Zhat Vash!!!! and the warning left by the ancients!!


AUNTIE AND NARISSA SURVIVE
So like nowhere in sight is there the magnificent USS Enterprise-NCC 1701-D rushing to save these tortured souls either. Those days are over my friends, gone, forget about it.... still I am broken up about the ship.... let no-one ever forget the name Enterprise...(Who said that?) Yet Patrick Stewart has said the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D is not happening again!

but Kudos to Picard!!!! He's still able to pull a few strings with Starfleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy. So he gets a squadron of ships...Meanwhile, Commodore Oh's mission to create Zhat Vash assassins to seek out and destroy something really bad, kinda like didn't work. so what could be worse?

STFU PICARD!

This epic tale informs us......unless all A.I. die, something bad news is coming to dinner. This explains why synths and deceased android friend Mr Data ( - have become public enemy No1 in ST Picard....No-one wanted Dr Bruce Maddox either(assassinated Cyberneticist) around so he got snuffed out by smiling cheerful lovely Juranti.

PICARD WANTS ANSWERS AND GETS
 JURANTI TO CONFESS

  So take a good look trekkers, in all her Zhat Vash glory. I mean, look at the way Oh's dressed, hooded and chanting mystic Zhat Vash rhetoric. Impressive isn't she? Closer examination at the barren planet reveals a "warning" left behind by the ancient civilization. What happened to them gawd knows, oh yeah the baddies.....coming to dinner.
COMMODORE OH
ZHAT VASH 



Don't underestimate Oh. Her chanting, tells us that something big and scary is out there in space. Once the A.I. line of demarcation has been crossed, something with an extremely bad attitude is waiting on the other side. What could that be?



ADMIRAL PICARD IN FULL COMMAND
OF THE LA SIRENA  ahem


"I don't know how to work this thing" says a baffled Picard so hilariously (Patrick Stewart)

Whats your favorite fun moment in this episode?

Seven of Nine:  "No" When her eyes turned black, wasn't she reactivated momentarily as the Borg Queen. What do you think of her now?

How will Seven react failing to save the XB's from Narissa?




LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, TREKKERS!

SEVEN:  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
