This show is a boldface lie. Its in no way Star Trek, nor is it Picard. its more Discovery garbage with a similarly incoherent and laughably Half-baked plot, cringingly bad writing, Empty vapid characters, and similar deconstruction of established characters from Trek's past. Another insulting joke from the empty void that is Alex Kurtzman's "creative" (and I use that term completely sarcastically) mind. if you have any connection to real Star Trek in the slightest, avoid this like the plague.
It's great to see Patrick Stewart on a Star Trek set, again. The examination of Romulan culture was excellent, the concerns about AI seemed overblown to me until late in the season (Asimov was pretty clear about how we can come to terms with AI). The crew wasn't Star Fleet, but they were more complicated; humans living in difficult times on the fringes of society. I like the characters, they have a depth that I'd missed from the early days of Star Trek (which is about the same age I am). The show is an illustration of the growth of its audience and its creators.
From the same nonsense political message perspective that gives us Star Trek Discovery, comes Picard, a weak, unintentionally hilarious storyline that seems to be from the same mindset that gave the world barbarella. A politically motivated robotic plot that has the protagonist on a weak hsauce journey through space to become a literal NPC. And we're supposed to think that robo-copy Picard is as legitimate as real Picard. What a sad end to a great character.
