    13: Picard S1E10: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2"

    13: Picard S1E10: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2"

    The first season of “Star Trek: Picard” is in the books! Did the show stick the landing? Did the plot resolve properly, and how about the thematic and emotional character arcs? How about that six-minute long tearjerker of a scene in that quantum simulation? And what’s Narek up to now? Scott and Jason break it all down. Join us back here next week for a panel discussion wrapping up the season as a whole....

    12: Picard S1E9: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1"

    The two-part finale is here! Jason and Scott find it hard to judge part one of a two-part episode, but they’ll run down what they can. Scott can’t decide what his favorite scene is! Jason has studied his paintings and his latin and can’t figure out what will happen next! Seven and Elnor are… present? And the great Guest Actor Prophesy is fulfilled! Join us as we get ready for next week’s big conclusion....

    11: Picard S1E8: "Broken Pieces"

    This week we’re once again joined by a special guest, as Jean MacDonald brings her Voyager know-how along to discuss Seven of Nine’s artifact takeover. While this episode was exciting, the more we thought about it, the more questions we had. At least some of us can remember Narissa’s name and understand more about her motivations! The secret of the Admonishment is revealed! Rios reveals the remarkable coincidence in his dark back story! And who is Beautiful Flower? We have theories. You knew we would....

    10: Picard S1E7: "Nepenthe"

    10: Picard S1E7: "Nepenthe"

    A lot of emotion, both expected and unexpected, comes out of this first true “Next Generation” reunion episode of “Star Trek: Picard.” David J. Loehr joins us as we talk about our feelings, make pizza, eat tomatoes, skin bunnicorns, eat cake with chocolate milk, and don’t even throw up once....

    9: Picard S1E6: "The Impossible Box"

    9: Picard S1E6: "The Impossible Box"

    There are a lot of mystery boxes in this episode, full of people, androids, secrets, murder, and surprise figurines! The crew arrives at the Artifact at last. Picard is overwhelmed by his status as the OG XB. Is Narek as straightforward as he seems, or is there room for some interesting betrayal? Why is Narek’s sister so boring? Why do the Borg have a Stargate? Also, Agnes is deeply upset and seeks solace in the arms of a spaceship captain, as so often happens. And Raffi shows just how high functioning an alcoholic (and snake plant addict) she really is....

Alek ,

Great StarTrek podcast; skip Season 1 wrap-up episode

I really like this podcast and Scott and Jason. In addition to the Greatest Generation/Discovery, this is the only other Star Trek podcast that I regularly listen to. One thing I really appreciate is both their positive attitudes towards the shows & Star Trek and their constructive criticism. I was really disappointed in the Season 1 Wrap-Up episode because the guest panelists devolved into the all-too-frequent trope of Star Trek podcasts: incessant complaining and nitpicking. I know that this is how a lot of fans do StarTrek, but I found it off-brand for The Vulcan Hello.

Scott rules

I love Scott’s hosting style. People who nitpick over canon take the fun out of Star Trek,
