Star Trek: Picard (S1E10) Et in Arcadia Ego Part 2 Review

*SPOILERS* “Star Trek” is fond of borrowing from Shakespeare and “Star Trek” starring Patrick Stewart doubly so, so I wish I could say that nothing in “Star Trek: Picard” became it like the leaving of it but I can’t. What I can say is that “Et in Arcadia Ego Part 2” was “Star Trek: Picard”…

Star Trek: Picard (S1E09) Et in Arcadia Ego Part 1 Review

*SPOILER* Like “Star Trek: Voyager” and Marvel’s Avengers before it, “Star Trek Picard” has reached its endgame.

On the Borg cube, Narek…

Star Trek: Picard (S1E04) Absolute Candor Review

*SPOILERS* Last time I suggested we may finally be free of flashbacks being used as a lazy way to introduce new characters that we’re meant to care about, but that promise became a prison for me as soon as this episode started with the entire pre-credits sequence being just that, this time bringing us the…

Star Trek: Picard (S1E03) The End is the Beginning Review

*SPOILERS* The episode opens, after the ‘previously on…’ recap, with yet another flashback to what’s rapidly becoming “Star Trek: Picard”’s version of “Discovery”’s Klingon boobs in its ubiquity: the attack on Mars. It’s interesting that the series keeps coming back to this and the events which followed without really touching on the critical, very “Star…
