Answers dominate episode 8 of Stark Trek: Picard as the history of the Zhat Vash, the attack on Mars, and Rios’s past with his deceased Captain.
After Picard and his crew defied Starfleet to rescue Soji from the Romulans, escaped to find refuge with Riker and Troi, and learned the location of Soji’s home world, they are finally ready to bring her home.
