i like that picard is basically a victorian or pulp gentleman-adventurer, having an array of friends from his life lived interestingly, up and down all social classes

like ofc his irish romulan household aid lady is also a crack detective. and ofc his first 2 choices for getting passage on a ship are (1) ring up an admiral at the space navy and ask for some pinnace they can spare and second, some sorta crime-doër who can get him onto a pirate ship

that's it? i suppose writing an actual ending is a hopelessly pre-streaming mentality

Squizzle

yeah this one stops really abruptly. i think they tried for a big reveal moment at the end to cap it off, but it was just that the romulan guy we already didnt trust, should not be trusted, and is related to the lady we were just introduced to when she received all that terrible exposition about the nefarious romulan black ops cult from commodoro

super poorly paced and set up, as endings go, but i am enjoying the series so far

loved that the admiral was a tng-style rear end in a top hat admiral

the rights are or maybe were a total mess. iirc viacom owns everything again when it bought CBS a couple of months ago so maybe after this flops the new CEOs will back dumptrucks of money up to ronald d moore and ira behr

lol i wonder if them doing the forensics poo poo in the dead android's apartment was a sop to CBS's audience being heavily weighted towards brainwormed boomers who love NCSI and CSI and other such bullshit

I tried rewatching BSG and just could not get through it. on second viewing i hated all the characters and i knew how stupid the plot was so there was nothing to keep me invested.

ds9 i rewatch all the time cause it rules. CBS, stop wasting money on bad trek and spend it on ds9 remasters

Some questions I think you'd have 10 minutes into episode 1 of star trek picard.

1) Who is Data and where did he go.

2) What is a Romulan.
