A “Moist Vessel” Brings Some Healing to “Star Trek: Lower Decks”

“Et In Arcadia Ego, Part Two” “Star Trek: Picard” Episode 10 Review

Overall it’s been a satisfying season with “Picard.” It’s good to see Patrick Stewart embody the role again and give the character a new life at the same time. The pacing of the season was a bit off, too slow at times while rushed at others. I think that is the price for a season meant to pay off the past. Now that we’ve acknowledged the future of “The Next Generation,” it will be a bit easier to move on.

“Et In Arcadia Ego Part 1” “Star Trek: Picard” Episode Nine Review

I generally expect to anticipate what the final episode will bring more than I am with this series, though. I appreciate that “Star Trek: Picard” is not trying to be the spectacle that “Star Trek: Discovery” is.

Star Trek Picard Remembrance

Star Trek: Picard – Remembrance Review

‘Picard’ picks up eighteen years since we last saw the good captain in ‘Nemesis.’ The history we’ve seen in the intervening years still holds in this new show, or at least for now. The Romulan supernova that happened in 2009’s ‘Star Trek’ is still in place, and it has affected Picard’s career. Data still gave his life to save Picard’s during ‘Nemesis.’ At least for now, the producers seem to be avoiding the problems that plagued ‘Discovery’ during its first season. The canon we know seems to be mostly untouched.
