At the end of the 24th Century, and 14 years after his retirement from Starfleet, Jean-Luc Picard is living a quiet life on his vineyard, Chateau Picard. When he is sought out by a mysterious young woman, Dahj, in need of his help, he soon realizes she may have personal connections to his own past.
On the review website Rotten Tomatoes, the series holds an approval rating of 92% with an average rating of 7.92/10, based on 36 reviews. consensus reads:
"Helmed by the incomparable Patrick Stewart, Picard departs from standard Starfleet protocol with a slower serialized story, but like all great Star Trek, it tackles timely themes with grace and makes for an exciting push further into the final frontier"
IMDB User Rating 8.7/10
One or two dissenters who didn't like the opening episode, but I really enjoyed it and the 40mins or so passed far too quickly.
Nice to see even in Picards imagination Data has put on a few pounds.
A really good set up from start to finish and looking forward to the next episode and some more well known characters hopefully, so gutted I can't binge watch it.
MGN Rating 8/10
