After a week ago, Picard scene surrendered us a group with our two most loved ex-Borgs, Jean-Luc and Seven of Nine, “The Impossible Box” gets the ever-dangling Locutus string for Picard as he winds up visiting the Artifact, a.k.a. a Borg solid shape (though one separated from the Collective). Furthermore, as anyone might expect, it is anything but a simple outing for him.
This unforeseen development likewise, fortunately, at last, joins the Picard storyline with Soji and Narek’s. That circular segment has understood played since it started, with Soji appearing to be unceasingly in obscurity while the manipulative Romulan worked his charms on her. Isa Briones and Harry Treadaway have been exceptional in the jobs; however, this has especially felt like a story point that was taking too long even to consider getting through presently that the state of affairs has changed.
On the whole, Jean-Luc. There’s a ton of business to overcome before he, at last, makes it onto the Borg solid shape, with a kind of fun piece of coaxing/fixing/undermining from Raffi to an old Starfleet companion to get Picard strategic papers. I state “kind of fun” because the scene closes with Raffi faltering back to her quarters alcoholic, and Picard doesn’t appear to be frightfully worried about his old XO’s present perspective. At any rate, he got those papers!
Star Trek: Picard improved as far as the Soji/Narek storyline this week, at last breaking liberated from the discomfort of that plot string. Also, Jean-Luc rejoined with Hugh in impeccable style, even while he thought about his long-standing feelings of dread and tensions regarding the Borg. Sadly, Picard was scarcely on the 3D square before he gateway ed away; it would’ve been pleased to find a good pace of that exchange – the great and the awful – right now, taking into account how drawn out the first piece of this season felt.
