Warning: There are spoilers ahead for the first episode of Star Trek: Picard!
For nearly two decades, the Star Trek television series have been stuck in the past. However, Star Trek: Picard episode 1 has finally given fans a glimpse of the post-Star Trek: Nemesis timeline, and we want to hear what the Superhero Hype community thinks about it!
Apparently Picard has been haunted by dreams of Data since the death of his android friend in Nemesis. Even the destruction of Romulus in Star Trek (2009) is weighing on Picard’s mind, in addition to a terrorist attack by synthetic beings that rendered Mars uninhabitable. Now, Starfleet’s most ardent defender is its among its most public detractors. Picard felt so strongly about the Federation’s new isolationist and anti-synthetic being policies that he resigned in protest.

Picard has lost his faith, but a young woman named Dahj gave him hope. Somehow, Dahj appears to be the flesh and blood daughter of Data. Picard was also immediately devastated when Romulan assassins killed Dajk. This suggests that the synthetics’ strike on Mars was more about the Romulans than the Federation. But what caused the shadow war between the remaining Romulans and the synthetics? Regardless, Dahj’s existence means it’s possible for synthetic beings to be fully organic. It also gave Picard a new mission. Dahj is dead, but her twin sister, Soji Asher, is still alive. But if the Romulan assassins find Soji first, her life will be in danger. Now, it’s time for Picard to get back into action and return to the cold of space.
Star Trek: Picard episode 2 will hit CBS All Access on Thursday, January 30.
