In 2019, the last Star Trek movie that was released was “Star Trek: Picard”. This movie is not a feature film but rather a television series that premiered on CBS All Access. It follows the story of Jean-Luc Picard, the legendary captain of the USS Enterprise-D, as he embarks on a new adventure years after his retirement from Starfleet.
Set twenty years after the events of “Star Trek: Nemesis,” “Picard” finds Jean-Luc living a quiet life on his family’s vineyard in France. However, when a young woman named Dahj seeks his help and reveals that she is actually an android created from his old friend Data’s neural net, Jean-Luc finds himself drawn back into Starfleet.
Together with a new crew of misfits and former Starfleet officers, Picard sets out on a mission to unravel the mystery behind Dahj’s creation and her connection to a dangerous group called the Tal Shiar. Along the way, they encounter old friends and enemies alike while facing new threats to both themselves and the galaxy.
The show stars Sir Patrick Stewart in his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard. He is joined by Alison Pill as Dr. Agnes Jurati, Isa Briones as Dahj/Soji Asha, Evan Evagora as Elnor, Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker, Santiago Cabrera as Cristóbal Rios, Harry Treadaway as Narek and Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine.
“Star Trek: Picard” has received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. Some have praised its exploration of themes like aging and loss while others have criticized it for being too slow-paced or deviating too far from traditional Star Trek storytelling.
Regardless of its reception though, “Picard” is a welcome addition to the Star Trek franchise and a testament to the enduring popularity of one of sci-fi’s most beloved characters.
At the time of writing, there has been no official announcement about a second season of “Star Trek: Picard”. However, given its popularity and critical success, it seems likely that we will see more adventures from Jean-Luc Picard and his crew in the future.
In conclusion, “Star Trek: Picard” may not be a feature film but it is certainly worth checking out for fans of the franchise. With its engaging storyline, impressive cast, and stunning visuals, it offers a fresh take on one of Star Trek’s most beloved characters while still staying true to the spirit of the original series.
