Prepping 4 Picard #2: Conspiracy

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.

Picard & DS9 Doc

Schedule change! Due to a number of scheduling issues, Derreck goes it alone this week with a short episode to discuss big news from the upcoming Picard series as well as some information, spoiler-free, on What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine, a crowd funded documentary from Ira Steven Behr.

We’ll be back next week to wrap-up Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 as a whole and talk about what we want and do not want from season 3.

Prepping for Discovery Season 2

Short Treks – “The Escape Artist”

We enter the future year of 2019 to discuss the final Short Treks of its first season, “The Escape Artist”. Known as the Mudd episode, “The Escape Artist” features Rainn Wilson’s Harry Mudd. Wilson also directed the Short Treks episode.

Additionally, we talk about some of our hopes and concerns about Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 as we bid farewell to Rae and Zach, at least for now, as Greg is set to return next week!

We’ll be back next week with the return of Greg, plus a more detailed discussion on recent Star Trek news and the new season of Discovery!
