Wow, what a way to open a season. The pace was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the episode with all of it's drama, jokes, characters and ship porn. This was just as good, if not better than season 1 opener, Remembrance, which I also loved. Really enjoyed the cast who were seemingly thrilled about returning, altough only Picard had real scenes (though that is understandable, since it's his own series). It was great to see Quinan and Q again after all these years, they even have in-universe explanation on why they look older than before. And at least Q returns in next episode as well. Well done producers, you have created a wonderful entry into this series. 10/10. Still in awe.
