    This should have been the intro tagline for this 'Short Trek' episode:

    The synths were created by the Federation. They evolved. They rebelled. There are many copies. And they have a plan...

    I suppose they are not hypochondriac and gilliac either :guffaw::guffaw:(cue Seth MacFarlane's new sci-fi show for the latter),

    What I don't like is the assumption that Starfleet is geting in to Slavery with the Synths.. ( if thats the story line) which is so beneath them.. no wonder Picard said F off..

    This explains why Picard is so into Dahj - assuming that she will be revealed as a synth ;);)

    Apparently they've upgraded EMH Mark 1 into a younger and sexier new body, yet Picard is still not interested :D:lol:

    "Synths" could also be the creators and the Federation changing the label so they don't feel so bad for how they've developed and treated them. "Synths" could be designed to have a lesser status within Federation law so that a synth wouldn't by design be granted the same civil rights as a Soong-type android and thus can be used for a variety of tasks without having to worry about the subjects becoming empowered to stand up for their own rights as individual beings.

    It wouldn't be completely out of character for the Federation and this would happen barely two decades after Lt. Commander Maddox - a cybernetics expert within Starfleet - began his studies of Data. If a uniformed officer sworn to uphold the ideals and principles of the Federation can be so cavalier with the legal status and even sentience of androids then I can imagine plainclothes bureaucrats and politicians might be even less enlightened.

    "Synths" is such a generic sci-fi name. But still, the idea Maddox's dream came true and it's led to all kinds of anarchy is an appealing one.

    And as others have said, I hope the Mk1 EMH's are in on the Synth side.

    If AI rights are a part of the story that could explain why The Doc is going to show up in Season 2. I had assumed it was because of his Borg knowledge, but AI rights issues would make even more sense.

    The very first line he'd say in 'Picard' Season 2 would be: "Please state the nature of the synthetic emergency." :hugegrin::lol::lol:

    I suspect the real villains will be an army of Andy Dick clones.

    You can't have enough Dicks.
    The Mark 3 and 4 would also be interesting XD

    The Andy Dick EMH Mark 4 would have kicked all his addictions but still be annoying and try to have sex with the nearest furniture.
