Star Trek: Picard's Latest Guest Star Momentarily Broke My Brain

Star Trek: Picard is a show that takes us further into the franchise’s future than any previous Trek series before it (well, until Discovery takes the crown by a century or nine).

On Star Trek: Picard, Everyone But Starfleet's Got Their House in Order

Star Trek: Picard’s premiere re-introduced us to a world where the Federation feels more beaten back and weary of its ideals than it has in years—even than when it was actively at war.

A History of Star Trek's Uneasy Relationship With Androids

Jeri Ryan and Sir Patrick Stewart Discuss the Legacy of Star Trek, Spandex, and Being Memes

Nerd fame is a strange thing. The sheer passion with which people relate to you, or to something you’ve created, is a lot to handle, even for the most seasoned actor or creator. For the cast of a phenomenon like Star Trek, it must be even more overwhelming. Read more...

Jean-Luc Picard Is Back, But Is the Star Trek He Left Behind?

He’s a little older. He’s not on a starship. He’s haunted by tragedies of years past. He’s drinking a lot more wine these days. But it would be fair to say that, deep down, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is not a man truly changed when we meet him again in the premiere of Star Trek: Picard. That’s not the question we should…Read more...

Coming into this season of Short Treks, “Children of Mars” was teased as one of two precursors to the events of Star Trek: Picard.

Star Trek: Discovery Goes Out With Sound and Fury, Signifying...Something

Star Trek: Discovery’s second season has come to an end, and it’s ended with one hell of a bang. Several bangs, even. Actually, its season finale was approximately 90 percent bangs.
