Last week CBS All-Access premiered the first episode of Star Trek: Picard. This series is notable for bringing back Jean Luc Picard, who is now semi-retired and running a winery. Some bad things have happened, causing Picard to resign from Star Fleet.
I’m not going to say a whole lot yet. There are a number of questions from the first episode that I’m sure are going to be answered throughout the season. What I’m most excited about is the fact we finally have a new Star Trek property that is moving forward. We haven’t had that since Star Trek Voyager ended its run almost 20 years ago. Everything Star Trek since then as taken place in the past.
Anyway, the first episode of Picard gets the spousal seal of approval, which is a pretty high bar to reach. We’ll see how well it does as the series continues. Also, if you get a chance, watch the Short Trek Children of Mars. It references a very important event in Picard, so you may want to not watch it until after you watch the first episode of Picard.
