Prepping 4 Picard #5: Season 4 Episodes

Top 20 Quintessential Picard Episodes

Jean-Luc Picard, Captain of the USS Enterprise. While he might not be everyone’s favorite Captain, it’s hard to argue with the impact he’s had on the Star Trek franchise and fandom. After 7 years on television followed by 4 feature films, Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard set off into the sunset. The end of Star Trek: Nemesis saw our Captain walking through the halls of the Enterprise E, seemingly with a fresh sense of purpose and hope. His loyal First Office had finally become Captain himself. He and the crew saved Earth, the Federation, and even the Romulan Empire. And B4 might just get his own personality from Data’s memory dump. Things were looking up but it was that generation’s final journey. Right? I mean, that was the tagline for the film, after all.

It turns out that many of us were wrong. Picard is returning. The new series, Star Trek: Picard is slated for a 2019 premiere and that gives us just enough time to get our ducks in a row and prepare for his return. So here we go…

The Top 20 Quintessential Picard Episodes for those #Prepping4Picard (in chronological order).

Want to know why I picked these episodes? No problem. Check out Episode 72 of the Redshirts & Runabouts podcast, “Quintessential Picard” for a detailed discussion.

RR35: TNG Mek’ba Season 2 Best Riker

This week we warp into Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 2 with another Mek’ba! In our Best Riker of TNG Season 2 episode, Jeremy and Derreck go head-to-head with the episodes they think are the best of Riker for the season. Jeremy brings “The Icarus Factor”, an episode that showcases double the Riker. Meanwhile, Derreck brings “Measure of a Man”, an episode iconic for its Data story line. Before the Mek’ba begins, we discuss a bit of Trek news including the results from the Saturn Awards plus the rumors swirling around the return of Picard.

Finally, break down the Twitter poll results from last week’s match for the Best Alien Encounter of TNG Season 1 which saw “Where No One Has Gone Before” going up against “The Neutral Zone”. Find out the winner, catch this week’s match-up, and then vote in the Twitter poll! 

What do you think of our two episodes? Which one is the best Riker episode of TNG Season 2? Do you think there is a better episode we missed? What are some future topics you’d like us to have in our Mek’ba for Season 2 or beyond?
