Getting Ready For Star Trek Picard

Are you excited about the return of Captain Picard?!?!  We are!!  Do you have a friend/spouse/pet who might need a little refresher course on who this Picard guy is and what the heck is going on with these Borg people?  Well, we put together a list of episodes to watch while you’re waiting.  Think of it as a little Star Trek Picard primer based on what we know so far about the show. You have a few months to get ready but if you don’t want to marathon all of TNG & Voyager, this watch list should help.
