    Finger snap and all undone. Commence season long celebration of Picard's life before he comes "one of us" in the Q.

    I wouldn't be shocked given how many fans don't like Picard dying at the end of Season 1. :lol:

    Oh, I wouldn't either. Q saving Picard? 100% acceptable. Picard being saved through an android body? 100% outrageous, egregious, a violation of all that TNG stands for! :eek::wtf::shrug:

    Picard’s Android body isn’t my favorite plot twist but it’s no different plot wise than Spock’s fucking katra. Or Nomad reviving Scotty. Or magical augment blood. Or past Harry. Or past O’Brien. Or, I could go on...

    Yeah, few people bother to remember that the Harry Kim that leaves the Alpha Quadrant in 2371 isn't the same one that returns to it in 2378. But, hey, Harry...so...

    Apparently the arbitrary line must be drawn here!

    ETA: Also, Spock's katra is pretty much the one where I went "So, it's magic then? Got it." Magic blood, android transference ain't got nothing on that one.

    Wasn't he from the future?

    He was the same Harry, they were quantum duplicates, the exact same person.

    Yes. And no. Even in-episode they establish there's a difference to a degree.

    I can’t remember the DS9 episode, but the one where he kept going back in time to tell his past self something then ended up dying. I thought it was future Miles that died. I might be wrong. Been awhile. Regardless... same idea.

    Q will tell Picard he never had to worry about dying, because after he goes he's going to be Q's live in pet in the continuum for all eternity.

    Cut to Picard screaming.

    Q would never do that because...


    ...because...


    ...because Q is awesome! Yeah, that's it! All hail Q. Star Trek is saved!

    Saw last night. Future Miles came to present after Present Miles dies in the future.

    Yeah, it's the same O'Brien as the one who dies, just temporally displaced and older by a few hours.

    Likewise, the divergence time between the two Harry's (and baby Naomi, let's not forget!) is only a few hours as well.

    Star Trek Online has a storyline involving the dead version of Harry. It has a very annoying platforming section.

    What about Q splitting Picard into two? Golem Picard and Original Picard ;)

    Only if an alien dog is involved.

    Possibly. Alternatively, it could be that this is the real Harry (and Naomi) who return, but the quantum duplicate Voyager and crew.
