Picard S1E1

Omg, thank god we’re back on earth again. I mean, okay, he’s a nonagenarian, but all the action and fast context switches from dream to reality to dream and back and to space… it doesn’t feel to fast for me. Unlike on Discovery where getting a burger seems to fast to absorb. I can finally understand a Star Trek episode. Picard is a powerful character not only in the actor who brings him alive, but also the psychic embodiment of an ideal that thrives in Trekies minds. What he says resonates, it motivates and perpetuates the story.

I would have preferred a more lit Enterprise D like every time we’ve seen it in TNG. It would have been nice to have a bigger moment of nostalgia.

They come in a pair? Can anybody say GAN? Maybe the neural nets has to be trained side by side, in some sense Data and Lore seemed like opposites because they had been used to create one another in coevolutionary artificial maturation. They had to have each other for either to become sophisticated. Wow, that’s really pretty cool!

I feel sad that Dahji just dies like that… I mean if they’re sentient, that’s like a really life that was lost there. The existence of Soji does not console a mind full of star fleet values… values for life.

This is an awesome start. I am looking forward to next Thursday… heh, they even put it on Thursday’s. That’s the same weekday I looked forward to every week in the early 90’s.

FAMX 0.2 (Actually watched it five times.)
