A trip inside Picard’s mind.
This was a terrible episode. The season started out so strong but this middle section hs been iffy at best.
Yep looks like a scene from the TNG holodeck, and oh look, one of them belting out a show tune. Yawn
Probably the most boring Star Trek Picard episode I’ve ever seen, it didn’t seem to move the story forward at all .
There is nothing pathetic about coming from an abusive family and I for one am thoroughly enjoying this addition to Picard's backstory.
Just stop watching then. It's really simple.
Just stop reading opinions that upset you. It’s really that simple.
Your opinion doesn't upset me at all. I just find it odd that people continue to watch something they dislike, only to complain about it. Life's too short for that.
I find it odd that you come to a Star Trek discussion board and complain about people discussing Star Trek.
I'm sorry to say, but I found this episode nothing but filler. Nothing really seemed to happen in it except Adam Soong running over Picard with the car and tbh that's the only thing I remember from this episode.
Jurati was fully overtaken by the BQ….
Picard was able to persuade Renee to take on the Europa Mission…
Kore found out her dads secret…
Picard is somehow locked inside a trauma related to his childhood…
yeah nothing really happened…….
Ok, I’m going to start talking about the elephant in the room here and not skirt around it.
Is there a logical, in universe explanation for Jurati randomly belting out a show tune? Was this scene only taking place in her mind, or did everyone else at the party get to see her performance? It looked like her audience enjoyed it though… If she actually did do this in the episode, was it a bit like someone at the party making a request to sing at a karaoke night taking place at the ball?
it was quite a different way of inserting singing cast members in to Star Trek. It wasn’t Vic Fontain’s holographic bar, it has the kind of ludicrousness as the extremely funny moment that the Doctor sang an opera about Tuvok’s Vulcan’s Pon Farr in Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy.
Also, Jurati’s red dress makes her look like that lady in the red dress out of the Matrix film that I vaguely remember. Could this also be a clue?
It is simple to not watch it, but the thing is we like Star Trek, we want to like it so we keep watching in the hope it will get better
And even the filler had filler - the constant shots of Picard injured followed by “27 minutes ago..”
Meant to raise the tension I guess but after the first two I’m like, I get it, he gets injured. Am I worried he’s going to die? No, he’s the title character and besides we’ve just seen the trailer for season 3
Please, build suspense in a way that works
I think it was meant to be part of the distraction so Picard can get away - lights go out, she starts singing and everyone is watching her
Logical I guess but…….
It was a diversion, designed to keep all eyes on her, to buy time for Picard to get to Renee. It definitely happened - Raffi and Seven talked about it later, and the Queen used the endorphins it generated to take full control. Was it the most obvious way to create a diversion? No. But the Queen had spent the entire episode nudging Agnes to do things her way, manipulating her brain chemistry toward the chemical mix she desired. That was what the kiss with Rios was all about - it shocked them both because it was the Queen who did it, not for romantic reasons but as yet another attempt to manipulate Agnes's brain chemistry. That attempt failed, so she tried something else. And this one worked. That was the in-universe explanation.
This must just be all too high concept sci-if that I can’t get my head around.
Or maybe it is dumbed down high concept sci-if and we needed the high concept version?
So we are going into the mind of robot Picard next week. I just watched a Smallville episode like that. Will there be a good and evil Picard?
Oh that explains it…. Kind of….
Will he have to fight himself in his own mind?
You aren't discussing though. You're whining and stamping your feet and threatening to 'switch sides' which does little to aid actual discussion. All well and good but don't expect people to not challenge your 'opinion'.
