Finally got around to watching the first episode of . I'm sold!

First serious plot question, why did the Vulcan Commodore not mind meld with Picard and show him what she showed Jurati? Like, a long time ago!

Show thread

Why would the Romulans stop Picard from rescuing their own people, when they could have faked an android attack on anything, anytime? For that matter, why didn't she just show Maddox and the people from the Daystrom Institute, as soon as she knew, instead of faking an attack?

"The past is written, but the future is left for us to write, and we have powerful tools, openness, optimism, and the spirit of curiosity. All they have is secrecy and fear, and fear is the great destroyer ..."

*This* is what makes good Star Trek great. Not the starships and phasers, but the vision of a future where we do better than our past, and the call to action, inviting us to make that vision real.

@strypey Ibloved this moment. Its Trek alright. Its Trek heroes struggling to reclaim Hope in a brutal world. It's awesome.
