The long anticipated spin-off we’ve all been waiting for.
I gotta say, Picard is a little darker than the previous Star Trek shows (minus Discovery, of course) but at the same time somewhat sad. For one example, the theme tune in the beginning intro gave out a happy/sad fusion feeling. And the scene in the final episode, of Data’s “second death” almost makes you want to cry.
But the rest of the show itself was amazing. The special effects, wow. And epic cast as well; with each character they play with their own demons.
It was worth the wait and the watch!
The first few episodes might look boring because of seeing the old captain Picard that even moves and speaks with difficulties. But later it will be moved to the second plan when the main plot begins. It’s definitely **the Star Trek**.
What it says about modern times
ST Picard tells more about modern times than about what is Star Trek.
When we watched the OS, TNG, DS9 and Voyager and even in Discovery (which was in itself an annoying/silly part of the Star Trek franchise) is was about ethical conflicts, discovery, morals and wonders, human progress. In general it was all optimistic, the best of mankind, we had a bright future.
SF usually extrapolates current times into the future and it is not a pretty sight this time. A morally collapsed government, conspiracies and secret plots, lone wolfs against the government, rich people pulling strings etc, etc. A single man’s fight against evil, it is all pretty standard in storyline and action. It has become more a episode of Mission Impossible than Star Trek.
It is sad to see that even Star Trek is now gone down with the times.
On the good part: it acting and visuals are pretty good, and it is also good to see 7 of 9 in something else than the demeaning catsuit from Voyager.
Could be good if not for the lazy writing
I really want to like Picard, I really do. But the show keeps annoying me with the lazy writing. I am half way through season 2 and have to write this review just to rant about my grievances.
So Picard and gang get sent to an alternative timeline by Q, where the Federation is a xenophobic fascist empire. So far, so “mirror, mirror”. Picard and gang decide to travel back in time (like Star Trek 4) to set things right.
This could work as a story. It SHOULD work as a story. But there are so many dumb decision and nonsensical story elements, that I keep having to shout at my TV.
Upon arriving in the new timeline, Picard and friends are arguably the most powerful people in their society (president, general, head of secret police, head of alien experimentation, fleet captain). They manage to throw this advantage away within the space of minutes.
Upon arriving in 2024, they crash in spectacular fashion near Picard’s abandoned vineyard in France. No-one sees this or comes to investigate. How uninhabited do the writers think France is?
Afterwards, the ship has power for transporters and cloaking device, but not internal heating? Really?!?!?!
They transport into major cities in broad daylight repeatedly, yet no one sees them except a small child.
The failure of their communicators over long distances in this period (maybe I missed why this happens) is continuously used to prevent vital information being passed between characters. Yet no one thinks to buy a mobile phone, or hack the mobile phone network with their communicators (yet, they can hack police computers in seconds, by hand).
No one thinks to replicate any money or ID.
Seven can drive a car, but only apparently with her foot flat on the floor, thus once again throwing away their advantage in seconds for the writers to lazily get a car chase sequence into the story.
They kill people without any sign of remorse. And yet when Elnor dies, the writers try to tell the audience how tragic this is. If you treat the taking of life so casually, don’t expect the audience to feel anything when a main character dies.
Picard teleports to coordinates without any idea where it will take him. Surely you would look up the location on a map before going?
And on and on it goes…a decent premise pissed away by lazy writing. It is unnecessary and insulting to the audience. Please make it better.
