Ahead of the new episode which debuts on Thursday, and in addition to the previously released photos, CBS has released a handful of new photos. In this episode, Elnor (Evan Evagora) joins the crew. This is also the first of two episodes directed by Jonathan Frakes.
Title: “Absolute Candor”
The crew’s journey to Freecloud takes a detour when Picard orders a stop at the planet Vashti, where Picard and Raffi relocated Romulan refugees 14 years earlier. Upon arrival, Picard reunites with Elnor (Evan Evagora), a young Romulan he befriended during the relocation. Meanwhile, Narek continues his attempts to learn more about Soji while Narissa’s impatience with his lack of progress grows.
Fans will not doubt notice the iconic Romulan ale prop in the shot of Soji and Narek above, used since The Wrath of Khan as the container of choice for Romulan ale.
