Stardate 2020.302. On this episode of Center Seat, my Star Trek podcast, I offer my reactions to the first season of Star Trek: Picard. How well does this post-Next Gen milieu hold up? Is Star Trek: Picard little more than a Star Trek: The Next Generation reunion show? And what about these new characters and the overall plot?
