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.
