I just saw Picard. Spoilers: It’s good that the show sucked me in with so many questions and wanting to see more. I did like how it starts with the Enterprise. Josh, I guess in my mature years, while I was very excited to see the new Picard series, I was able to focus on my job today and knew when I got home, I could enjoy the premiere after having dinner. But I remember what it’s like to have so much anticipation. I was eagerly anticipating this. After all, it’s like for me when Star Trek The Motion Picture came out after all the anticipation. But this is your Enterprise. I too wonder if Maddox plays a role in the future episodes. What the heck, a Romulan reclamation center? And what are they doing in that cube. I guess it will be explained when we see Seven. And yes, interesting that the Romulans have what sounds like British or Irish accents. I guess they chose actors from that background to portray them with a certain regal quality. I recently watched Bladrunner. So the whole business of the synthetics revolting on Mars gave me a Bladerunner vibe. I don’t know what the deal is with the Romulans who are at Picard’s house. Why are they there, I know from the dialogue about Picard’s efforts to help the Romulans before the nova hit. So they are refugees who appreciated his help. Just seemed odd that they were more like servants then maybe healthcare workers. The reason for Picard’s Starfleet exit is interesting and a painful one for him. I see some people here don’t like that. Yeah, I can understand that. How can such an institution go from such a noble one to loose its principles. It’s like James Bond has to fight with MI6 again because there’s something wrong inside? We shall see what happens.
