He died for our sins - being mean to robots - and thus saved our souls from the evil tentacle devil robots, and was resurrected as a robot.

In all seriousness what the hell is with the ending of Picard? Did Soji forget everyone was trying to blow her up with a soccer bomb? Did no one remember Agnes murdered a guy and agreed to go to jail? Are we not supposed to see Dr. Soong Jr. as a manipulative rear end in a top hat cowardly abandoning humanity to save himself? Why was the theme of mortality introduced at the last minute? I've read Michael Chabon's books, and I know he can do better than this! What happened?

Oh, Picard spoilers, I guess.

Eleventy thousand executive procuders wanting to use the show as an idea laundry mat, Patrick Stewart having access to the writers room, also this was Chabon's first TV gig AND he was taking care of his terminally ill father the whole time Picard was in production.

That's why Picard is a robot now.

The stuff with Hugh seemed like he got killed off in a reshoot so seven could do all the stuff he was going to do

They had 50 plot threads and 500 characters and nothing for all but like 2 of them to do

Picard and Discovery suck poo poo, just not for the reasons most trek fans think

I liked it when Picard is reunited with Hugh and they help out some other ex-Borg people. I remember hoping that they wouldn't kill off Hugh in the next episode. Guess what happened in the next episode!

Then Seven gets control of the Borg ship and takes it a a planet that's about to be attacked by a huge Romulan fleet. Sound cool? Well, the Borg ship gets destroyed by giant flowers before the Romulans even get there.

Hugh should have just been wounded, taken to a Borg alcove by Seven and Elnor and plugged in to regenerate and he's all upset because he doesn't want to be plugged in again but they're like "you're gonna die otherwise". Seven then kicks all the Romulans off the cube, and then her, Elnor and Hugh pilot the cube and fend off the Romulans while Picard does his thing with La Sirena to buy time for Starfleet to show up (with maybe three or four different ship types in the fleet, I dunno.)

Lets do an entire Borg sub plot then crash it into the ground just like the Borg cube

He didn't die. The last time we see him in universe is working his vineyard. HE NEVER WENT BACK TO SPACE.


He may be a prophet of Him but he is not the chosen one.

perfect

for one thing, british anything is sure to be full of people who act like they're virgins and consider anything else inappropriate in public

albeit to my knowledge only Britain itself is so bad that people have taken to loving in public just to try to force everyone else to acknowledge that sex exists
