Watch: 2 New Clips From ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season One Finale

On Thursday the season one finale for Star Trek: Picard premieres on CBS All Access. Last weekend CBS released a clip of the episode and today they are two new clips to get you ready.

Picard makes a speech

The first clip is an exclusive at IndieWire and it features Sir Patrick Stewart giving one of his classic Jean-Luc Picard speeches on board the La Sirena, to an audience of one in the form of Dr. Jurati (Alison Pill).


Seven bonds with Elnor

The second clip is an exclusive with and features Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and Elnor (Evan Evagora) having a nice chat about the Borg, while Narek (Harry Treadaway) skulks about on the crashed Artifact.


A closer look at Picard props

And for even more video, earlier this week CBS released one featuring property Master Jeff Lombardi as he takes a look back at some of the props we have already seen on Star Trek: Picard.

Nice to see JL gettin his mojo back!

Where is Rios?

In Star Trek: Picard we’ve been told several times that Soji has the face of the destroyer, but now that we’ve met Sutra I’m sure SHE’S the destroyer. She’ll be the one that contacts whomever set up the Admonition, which will lead into the second season.

As for Starfleet being behind the Romulans, isn’t it odd that Warp 15 isn’t a thing yet? Why would Picard changing history in All Good Things… have led to technology not advancing to that point? What else could have been changed (beside that and Deanna being alive)?

A couple of points Michael Sacal:

First, I think you’re right about Sutra. When Rahmda read the cards, she asked Soji if she was “The one who lives, or the one who dies?” Both Sutra and Soji lived while their twin died. So, the inference that Soji had to be the Destroyer is based on an inaccurate assumption that there was only one set of twins where one died.

Second, Warp 15 isn’t a thing, but it’s a good question why Starfleet hasn’t harnessed other faster technology in the intervening decades.

According to 90s Trek, Warp 10 is an boundary that can never quite be attained (asymtote). So, improved ships approached Warp 10, with Voyager was able to maintain Warp 9.9 over extended periods. Also, Warp speeds increase nonlinear with Warp 1 being around 1 light year per year and Warp 9.9 around 1000 light years per year. So, Warp 9.9 is much faster than Warp 8.

Warp isn’t the only faster-than-light technology established in Star Trek though. The Borg use Transwarp conduits to go faster and episode 8 exploited that.

Slipstream technology which most recently showed up in Voyager is another approach that is as fast or faster than Transwarp and doesn’t require a permanent network of conduits. In the series, Voyager got the Slipstream tech from an alien, but the ship wasn’t built to use it and to abandon the attempt.

In the Relaunch novels, once Voyager returns, Starfleet adapts the tech and builds prototype slipstream explorer ships and refits others that have suitable spaceframes. Naturally, there was scope for intrigue as other powers sought secrets of slipstream technology.

In the books, Ezri Dax gets command of the Aventine one of the prototype explorers, and it’s a fan favourite. (Check out the lovely Eaglemoss model if you’re interested.) All to say, I’d really love to see the gorgeous slipstream ships, and Dax’s Aventine in particular, imported into canon.

Anything faster than warp 10 and you turn into a slug. Its a stupid episode, but its canon.

From Memory Alpha,

“In the original future, which was changed by Jean-Luc Picard, around the turning point of the 24th century, warp factor values beyond warp 10 were again used to describe extremely fast speeds. (TNG: “All Good Things…”)

Warp factor 13. The Medical Spaceship Pasteur under Captain Beverly Crusher’s command traveled at warp 13 in the incident concerning the anti-time eruption in the Devron system. (TNG: “All Good Things…”)

In the October 1995 issue of OMNI, science advisor Andre Bormanis stated the idea of warp factors beyond 10 in the alternative future was in a recalibration of the warp scale, as ships had gotten faster. Possibly warp 15 was set to be the transwarp threshold instead, according to Bormanis, and warp 13 in that scale would have been the equivalent of warp 9.95 of the previous scale.

According to Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 555) warp 13 from “All Good Things…” may also allude to some type of implementation of the Federation transwarp drive technology from VOY: “Threshold”.”

That would be cool.

ok that’s nice, but what about those of us who currently subscribe?

stay tuned, you’ll probably get an ‘attaboy!’ from cbs in the mail any year now.
