Staying away from any spoilers I only wish to say that this was an really enjoyable premier, looking forward to the next episode.
Dahj visits Picard, told him she killed 3 people, and he immediately welcomes her. Given she's a complete stranger to him at that point, that seems incredulous.Picard gets catapulted through the air by the explosion, and wakes up on a couch in his home. Like wtf? Where's the ambulance, hospital, police, investigation?
The storyline of this new series Star Trek Picard is based on 2 major events:1) The events of the 2009 movie "Star Trek: Nemesis" feature the destruction of Romulus, the homeworld of the Romulan empire, due to its sun going supernova, which prompts an attempt at mass-relocation of a billion Romulan refugees into Federation territory....It was interesting that Picard told the FNN reporter about Dunkirk - Patrick Stewart's own father was a military veteran who served in that conflict.
He specifically refers to “books of history people would rather forget”, and is a historian/archaeologist. I think the idea that these moments of history *are* forgotten by most in his time is half the point, rather than a WTF.

I was really hoping they would to pull heavily from TNG, which is something we could definitely use today. Instead, they just had to go political.Its really sad, growing up Picard was almost like a father figure to me hoping this show doesn't ruin that

- That would make no sense because the Romulan empire is vast and there would be plenty of space to relocate a billion Romulans to.
- Another wtf moment. Why would anyone expect this particular event from WW2 to be common knowledge in the 24th century? Because Hollywood made a movie about it in the early 21th century?
Quote from: sanman on 01/26/2020 07:35 amThe storyline of this new series Star Trek Picard is based on 2 major events:You're confusing two movies.Data dies at the end of 2002's "Star Trek: Nemesis".The supernova that destroys Romulus is in 2009's "Star Trek" (the J.J. Abrams reboot movie.)
We previously saw the Federation News Service in 1994's "Star Trek: Generations", interviewing Kirk about the launch of the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-B. The familiarity may simply be so that contemporary audiences would know what was going on, similar to the famous "salt shaker" incident in the original episode "The Man Trap" (they tried using a futuristic looking salt shaker, but no one watching the scene knew what it was supposed to be, so they just used an ordinary one.)Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was by Nicholas Meyer, not James Cameron.
