    Picard – Stardust City Rag

    A very different episode this time compared to the ones that have preceded it. I mean initially, it took Picard 3 episodes to leave Earth and then one episode to find/source a bodyguard. This one is basically Vegas in space and I’d say the whole Star Trek universe has kind of been flipped on its […]

    Star Trek: Picard – First Cut

    Right we’re three episodes in and I think it’s time to start talking about Picard. I probably have to apologize from the start though as I didn’t really believe that Jean Luc had it in him.

    As someone who enjoyed the Enterprise series, this novel served nicely to bridge the story onward from when it was taken off TV, although there are a few other novels preceeding this one. This was another story I got a lot of enjoyment from, it has espionage missions, space battles, phaser and disruptor shoot-outs, and […]
