Picard’s Star Trek: First Contact Redo Wastes Season 2’s Potential

As Q’s powers have waned and Picard has been forced to confront his family history, he risks becoming surplus to requirements. However, the previous Star Trek: Picard episode. “Monsters” emphasized that Picard’s confrontation with his past was part of Q’s plan, and for the majority of “Mercy’s” runtime, it was as if these threads were going to bring Q and Picard closer together and come to some form. of reconciliation. It is therefore extremely disappointing when Seven and Raffi track down Picard and warn him of the Borg Queen’s impending attack on La Sirena, just as he is about to figure out Q’s plan in 2024. star trek.

picard Season 2 began as a story of saving the future from the bad decisions and selfishness of the past. It was a storyline that seemed timely and relevant, but it was abruptly shelved since Raffi and Seven freed Rios from immigration enforcement. There is still an undercurrent of societal commentary in Adam Soong’s script, suggesting that humanity would rather seek a quick fix to its environmental crisis than implement fundamental change. It’s Soong’s protective shield technology that’s key to the Borg Queen’s plan to tempt the scientist to her side, but also employing an army of assimilated mercenaries feels like picard’her interest in exploring this theme further.

The mercenaries themselves exemplify the creative dryness at the heart of this Star Trek: First Contact rehash. Earlier in the episode, Seven and Raffi find the Borg Queen using car batteries to speed up Agnes’ assimilation. If this were to be explored further, an attack on La Sirena by Borg drones assembled from 21st century technology would have at least been visually interesting. In the end, it is more likely that the next episode of Star Trek: Picard will be a lackluster spaceship seat led by actors wielding machine guns with black contact lenses. It’s a hugely disappointing waste of the multiple plot threads and thematic concerns at the heart of this second season of the The next generation spin off.
