Things I found fun in the most recent episode:
•Mott's barbershop empire
•Quark's bar franchise empire
•Picard's OUUUUTRAGEOUS FRONCH AK-SAYNT!

Also regarding last episode- the romulan siblings are boring but I have to give points to the costumers dressing the sister up like a modern version of Unnamed Romulan Commander from the TOS episode "The Enterprise Incident".

that was the least good ep thus far. i love a good caper, but this was almost relentlessly grim from beginning (icheb wtf) to end (agnes wtf) and lacked the core of hope and morality that has made the series work so far

true but it also had ZERO borg cube plot scenes and I thought it was all the better for it.

Also the Bejazzle actress looked a bit like a young Marina Sirtis from some angles, which is not a bad thing.

The cold open of was p. harsh I will admit, your average soft-skinned Trek fan is not going to enjoy gore-torture at all. I never watched VOY apart from the odd ep while channel surfing way back when, so I didn't twig the guy with the eye was a big thing in 7-of-9 fandoms and there is a lot of wailing and gnashing about it online.

im disappointed that they, at no pt in the ep, tricked a computer into making itself tiny so that they could swindle the klute in a lethal round of speed chess

There's prob an executive mandate not to go a single episode without reminding the audience that the Borg are on this show

I thought that was pretty set up from the beginning though? She came in at just the right time and just the right circumstances to ingratiate herself with Picard and co, right after having an offscreen conversation with the conspirator admiral, and they told us they skipped a background check.

I appreciate that you used the Romulan Republic logo from Star Trek Online instead of the Romulan Star Empire one. That's a nice deep cut.


Also I think this is the Terrible Secret of Space the Zhat Vash are trying to keep from being revealed in Star Trek: Picard.
