STAR TREK: PICARD was an action-packed episode. There were battles between spaceships, friends, and old lovers. Not one relationship was safe from the tension of how to live another day and protect the Galaxy from imminent danger. 

Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) became Number One in a brief, humorous moment. I am sure Trekkies were cheering. Kudos to the make-up crew who turned Picard and Will (Jonathan Frakes) into semi-believable, younger men. Comic relief is always necessary. This installment did seesaw between Warf’s dilemma and Picard’s. Intersection is imminent. I can’t wait. 

STAR TREK: PICARD is just what my doctor ordered for universal escapism. It is pure entertainment while being surrounded by old friends and new enemies. It is available to stream on Paramount+.
