Star Trek: Picard Season 1 Finale Review
There will be some spoilers in this blog, so keep that in mind if you haven't seen the final episode for the season yet, you have been warned.
Last Thursday, the final episode of Season 1 of Star Trek: Picard, aired on CBS All Access, which BTW is currently free for a month. So if you have been holding off on subscribing because of the cost, now you don't have to. It's a good time to get it actually, as you can binge the first two seasons of Star Trek: Discovery and the whole first of Picard.
The season ends on episode 10, which I wish there were more. It's been so long since we had new Next Generation era Trek that ten episodes seems short. They closed the door finally on Data which I have mixed feelings about. Data died, sacrificing himself in Star Trek: Nemesis. While I know that the Picard character needed more closure on it all, I felt like it was a done deal already. For all of this season they hinted that Data was possibly alive in some form and it turned out he kind of was, only to turn around and end his existence of sorts again, per his wishes. The action was steady throughout though, and the story brought some Next Generation type feelings back.
At the end of the episode we see what looks to be Picard's new crew going into season 2, which includes Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine. Season 1 was not as good all around as I wanted it to be, but maybe it's like a lot of first seasons that need to set things up. Regardless, I am excited for season 2. Have you watched the first season of Picard? What did you think?
