Warp Trails: Picard #1-10 Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2

by Warp Trails

The first season of Star Trek: Picard concludes with Picard defending the synthetics from the Romulans and discussing existence with Data.

With the conclusion of the first season of Picard, there is plenty to talk about from the themes of the show, the execution of the plot, what worked, and what could have been improved.

On this episode of Warp Trails, we discuss:

  • Picard’s last, desperate plan to defend the synthetics,
  • The plot device that is anything and everything for everyone,
  • Unresolved plot points (Narek, some of the synthetics, etc.),
  • The final confrontation between Picard and the Romulans,
  • The fate of the Borg and xBs, and
  • Our overall thoughts and critique of the season finale.
