    Maybe, maybe not. It's public domain, and could be as simple as that. *shrug*

    It was also played as a refrain when we saw the establishing shots of the Titan hiding in the junk yard, so it makes me feel it has more significance. But I’m struggling to think what…

    I wonder if Shaw's crew who got took off the ship are still alive?
    If not I'm thinking Shaw might have a bit more survival guilt to live with.

    A big step down from the excellent 3 episodes that preceded it. Vadec's backstory was the most interesting part, a nice DS9 era/Section 31 angle done properly in Nu Trek for once. Nice to see "Tuvok" too. The rest of the episode was fairly mediocre.
    People complain about the memberberries this season but I'd take a dozen of them over these painful, season-long mystery arcs. Really tired of the Jack mysterybox and it's absurd it's taken 8 episodes to find out what the deal with him is. Thankfully it seems the writers are finally going to put us out of our misery in the next episode and tell us what's up with him, although it wouldn't surprise me if Vadec's comment at the end was a false dawn and we only really find out the truth in the last minute of the final episode.

    Oh please don't do that to him. The Dipshit from Chicago has already had a weird, bad week.

    "Three Blind Mice" was the tune that the scientist that tortured Vadik and her people was whistling as she worked. I don't think there's any more significance to it than that.

    Ok, if Starfleet knows that Picard is in a synth body, why would the changelings use his body to supposedly fake a DNA test on Frontier Day? Wouldn't the fact that this Picard has DNA outright tell Starfleet that it's not Picard, because Picard shouldn't have DNA anymore!

    I feel it refers to her three internal beings fighting for control.

    1: Section 31 scientist that I feel is still with the changeling but powerless.
    2: The tortured changeling.
    3: The evil face boss.

    All blind mice. Blinded WITH HATE.

    100 Changelings went out into the Galaxy.

    3 returned.

    They figured out how to capture them somehow.

    Hahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahaha

    If.

    Showing Frakes without makeup was rather scary looking.

    Honestly that whole exchange should have been recorded and broadcast as proof of the changeling infiltration.

    So Tuvok has got himself lost again. Would be a hoot if the Changelings hid him in the Badlands. Will Janeway recruit Okona to find him?

    In all seriousness though, I have to wonder if they intentionally made Riker look like a corpse

    I saw someone comment (possible elsewhere) but what villains from TNG require the follow up? I think this is the best acknowledgement of DS9's story is that there are incredibly powerful consequences that exist far outside the main cast. I think that is more interesting in of itself.

    It seemed pretty unambiguous to me. Changeling turns into corpse-Riker and says, "Me? I'm as good as dead..." It was a taunt.

    And for me, as a fan of all the post-Nemesis novels which integrated characters and story arcs across those 24th century Berman-era shows, it's fun to see this happen in the Picard show too.
