    They've certainly been heavily setting that up - Book's ship and Burnham's familiarity with it, her rubbing against nuStarfleet, her ongoing interactions with Georgiou, them going off together this week.

    I’m not here to disagree, but feel like being tortured by the Cardassians should feature on your Picard list, at least so someone can count the lights. (You can also throw in his fathers disapproval, being stabbed through the heart, pining for his best friends wife, the death of said best friend, the loss of the stargazer and subsequent enquiry...that’s before we even meet him in Farpoint... then to cherry pick without chronology, his mind meld with Sarek, the death of Tasha, the death of Data, the loss of his ship, killing ‘himself’... Risk is part of the game if you want to sit in that chair.)

    It should. Which is why get the Picard show featuring dealing with a lot of trauma, primarily wrapped up in the Borg.

    In my opinion, Picard should have cracked a lot sooner than he did.

    What happened to Burnham's own ship? The one she rescued Discovery with (I'm assuming) and the one we see at the beginning of 0303.

    I'm pretty sure that was Book's ship. We have seen it can reconfigure itself.

    She doesn't have it by the time of "Scavengers", if the past tense of her sentence is any indication.
    She said, "I owned a ship."
    It was Booker's ship that saved the Discovery.

    Book seemed to be operating from that Sanctuary planet we saw in 'That hope is you' so maybe she left it there before joining up with book, for whatever they were doing when Discovery arrived.

    Or maybe Burnham sold it and it's currently in an interstellar car yard somewhere.

    Oh yeah, absolutely! I can't belive I forgot that one.

    Agreed on most, but at least from what I recall about TNG it never really felt like Picard and Yar were particularly close, or that her death would impact him significantly more than other personnel's death.

    It’s one of those little things that I think was more ‘known in fandom’ say thirty years ago, but kind of drifted out of fan consciousness. Tasha was like Picards foundling daughter (a bit like Georgiou and Saru these days, or even Burnham) with it being implied it was him that got her off of Turkana IV etc. It’s like the dropped backstory for Saavik too.
    Haven’t seen you in ages, good to see you again. :)

    I either never noticed that, or it just has been too long since I watched TNG in whole :D Although, now that I think about it, that scene in that one Q episode where Riker gets powers (that I rewatched recently, er, I mean when lockdown began in March...) where Tasha is "killed" and whisked away to the bridge and talks to Picard makes a lot more sense in that light. When I watched it (out of order), it just felt kind weird an unprofessional.

    Good to see you too! I took a bit of a TrekBBS break, but now I'm back and all that.

    Until The Search For Spock, *SPOCK* was more of a rule-breaker than Kirk, given The Menagerie....

    I just pictured Mariner doing this. Maybe she's not that different from Michael after all.

    Nope. There is no Number One in the 2249 scene (Michael certainly isn't, yet).
