So far all the Emergency Holograms are the most interesting part of this show I think.
I liked the whole virtual control setup for piloting the ship.
One thing I've been wondering about this show is that the Federation is supposed to be a post-scarcity economy where they don't use money any more. If that's the case, then how will Picard pay the pilot? For that matter, why did Raffi live in a hovel instead of a mansion?
Ah, it's the last few seconds, again--she's back!
The pacing still feels a bit slow for me (as much as I really enjoy it)--I think the reason being, here they're telling a story over the course of a season and taking their time with it, whereas in the original series, the story would be told in 1 or 2 episodes, with that pacing.
You owe me a ship Picard!
Picard must be super rich to be affording this quest huh?
I'm trying to remember.... Have we ever seen Picard and Seven meet before? Obviously he recognized her, and she's likely a well known figure, but I don't recall them ever interacting in show or movie cannon.
No, they haven't.
But Picard was assimilated by the Borg. Could he know 7 from when he was Locutus and part of the collective? Or do I have timing all messed up????

Yes, they were both Borg at the same time, but in different quadrants of the galaxy.
She looked great. I have seen her doing guest appearances before this and she looks surprisingly young. I don't think we will see a unitard that took 6 people to get on but that's fine. 7 of 9. Pretty cool.
Perhaps they met in a meeting of Borg Survivors Anonymous near Starfleet HQ.
I have to agree with the criticism about the slow pacing here.
It's episode 4 and Picard is still assembling his "new crew".
I'd thought that they'd be farther along than this by now. And we still don't have sufficient back story on Raffi yet.
Still, they are keeping things interesting so I'm willing to let this play out.
In the comic book Star Trek: The Next Generation - Hive which takes place after ST: Nemesis, Picard and Seven of Nine investigate an attack on the Borg by an extra-dimensional alien.
For me, every time the credits roll I'm surprised that the episode is over already. I don't find the pacing slow at all.
For me, it's just that I'd like it to go on for another 45 minutes/hour and for more to happen. Part of it, I think, is having been habituated, for decades, to weekly episodic shows in which an entire story tends to occur in the space of an hour (with the occasional two-parter (or even longer arc, in the case of Star Trek Discovery in its second 2 years)).
I laugh every time we see a new one. And I think the actor does a good job of keeping them "separate". I can only imagine what they're planning that will use all of them.
The show pacing is slow to me too. But I understand this season is backstory and build-a-squad and character camaraderie plus cameos. And as Mikeguy said we're used to Picard-based Trek being mostly weekly self-contained shows.
Think Wesley Crusher will make an appearance?
Emergency Hologram Dance Party!
(Orphan Black joke, for the uninitiated.)
I don't mind the pacing too much except the fact that I feel like it will get to the last episode and they will rush away the ending since the season is so short.
At least we know there will be a season 2 already.
I do find myself thinking more about the backstory for Rios and his ship though, I hope we get to know more about that.
After all, one of the biggest stars of all Star Trek franchises is the ship.
Patrick Stewart made it clear before the series aired that this is less of a "Star Trek adventure" than it is a "Picard-centric story". While I'm not crazy about the pacing either, it's about what I expected.
