Just getting it ready, as I will be watching it later today.
LOVED the sign: This facility has gone 5843 days without an assimilation
Ridiculous that they would have that, but funny as hell.
So far liking it, but they are making the Romulans too powerful, IMO.
I’m hooked. Is it me or did Picard not look as old in this episode?
Maybe not so ridiculous...I can see some wise-@$$ human putting that up.
It's picking up speed, for me. But it just ends so quickly; I could have it 50%-100% longer--double episodes, anyone?
Loved the Asimov reference/book at Picard's home (did you catch the book's title? worth it to pause the screen),* and Picard's wry comment on his lack of affinity for science fiction. And I so enjoyed the Irish-Romulan accent of Laris, one of Picard's housekeepers.
Asimov, "The Complete Robot."
Between the recap and the opening credits we get what, 40 minutes of story? Too short imho.
Loved that the synth was F8...... fate?
Loved the sign too.
Loved the science fiction line.
Shame on me for not previously remembering this but Maddox was the geneticist who tried to dismantle data in measure of a man.
Also, I literally raised my hands and cheered when Picard put his com badge on!

Great catch! (I'm going to need to watch this again; and maybe along with the first episode. Hey, maybe do it like "The 12 Days of Christmas" each week!)
I was surprised by the F bomb.
I'm enjoying it.
But I'm also ready for them to get off of earth and into space.
Why was Picard so surprised that communications from the twin originated off-world? It's not as if people haven't been living on other planets.
Still loving the show.
I'm a little surprised at the outright hostility towards the Romulans and that it was enough to scuttle the rescue mission.
Considering that the Romulans allied with the Federation and the Klingons against the Dominion and even Nemesis implied better relations with the Romulans at the end.
(Or are Kurtzman and Chabon going to completely ignore the events of Deep Space Nine?)
Also, I'm surprised to see the usage of Commodore in Starfleet since we haven't seen it since TOS (plus the US Navy stopped using it as a rank).
But I love me some Peyton List and they seem to be working their way through the mystery in a way that's keeping me interested.
I think it's like the way immigrants are often thought of on our Earth...fine in theory, but when huge numbers of them show up at the border...
Another example of the moral rot the show posits is emerging among the humans of the Federation.
I was surprised from looking at Star Trek: Picard (TV Series 2020– ) - Full Cast & Crew - IMDb that Commodore Oh was played by Tamlyn Tomita - IMDb. She's had many roles but she was aka Laurel Takashima from B5, Waverly in Joy Luck Club and the girl in Karate Kid II which I think I've only seen bits and pieces of (will need to watch some day).
It's not just you, and I think they deliberately made Picard look & act frail in the beginning to show how he had been slowly fading away all those years at the vineyard but having a new mission has kinda brought him back to life.
I chuckled at that one too!

I don't think they'll ignore it, but it might not be all that relevant to this series. This show takes place 24 years after the Dominion war ended. To put that in perspective, how front-of-mind was World War 2 in 1970 or the Vietnam war in 1999? Obviously, the impacts were still there, but it's not something most people brought up in everyday conversation. Picard wasn't all that involved in the Dominion war, the Enterprise was kept away from the front lines to continue to show that the Federation was still exploring and seeking out new life and new civilizations even in the face of an existential crisis.
Was the woman at the house at the end that he brought the wine to a new character, or someone we are supposed to know?
I am myself that question every time we meet a new character on this show.
Somebody new, I assume (played by Michelle Hurd, who's never been in a Star Trek production before).
I believe, new. As mentioned above, portrayed by Michelle Hurd, who did a great job on the first seasons of "Law and Order: SVU."
From Wikipedia, she is the partner of the pilot of Picard's ship. I only looked her up because I thought that I had recognized the actress.
surprised by the f bomb, im not for censorship, but it does not belong in star trek.
terrible episode , im out, back to tng and os.
