Second episode of my look at the new Star Trek series. It’s short and late, but here are my thoughts on Picard Episode 2. Lots of world building but not much in earth shattering reveals unlike episode one.
Today we start a brand new series of podcasts, a weekly breakdown of the new Star Trek series on CBS, Picard. This will be posted as close as feasible to Thursday each week when the new episode airs, and will discuss the series on a 2 week delay so as not to spoil it for people watching live.
In short, the new episode features many of the usual offenders when it comes to speculative fiction in an atheist world setting, with the new addition of a plot designed to make the creation of life a human achievement via advanced AI. Not recommended for younger individuals due to obscured lines between good and evil and morally ambiguous.
