Listen To An Excerpt From ‘Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land’ Audio Drama

A week before the second season of Star Trek: Picard launches, you will be able to check in on Seven and Raffi as they have their own adventure in an audio drama. Today we have a new clip so you can take a listen to sample what is coming.

Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land clip

Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land is set between seasons one and two, and stars Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine and Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker, who lead a full cast in the audio drama which also features sound effects from the television series. In this new clip Raffi and Seven touch down on the planet Ebla expecting a bloodbath with the Romulan warlord, Rynin, but instead realize the Romulans are really there to abduct someone Seven knows…

No Man’s Land is written by Picard co-creator and writer Kirsten Beyer along with Star Trek comics veteran writer Mike Johnson. In addition to Raffi and Seven, the audio drama includes a full cast playing all-new characters including the Romulan warlord Rynin, a Fenris Ranger, various exotic alien species, and more. The voice cast includes Fred Tatasciore (Shaxs on Star Trek: Lower Decks), John Kassir (Cryptkeeper on HBO’s Tales from the Crypt), and John Cutmore-Scott (a featured character on the ABC series Deception). In addition, it will feature actual Star Trek: Picard sound effects such as transporters, weapons, explosions, and more.

Here is the full synopsis:

While Seven of Nine and Raffi are enjoying some much needed R&R in Raffi’s remote hideaway, their downtime is interrupted by an urgent cry for help: A distant, beleaguered planet has enlisted the Fenris Rangers to save an embattled evacuation effort. As Seven and Raffi team up to rescue a mysteriously ageless professor whose infinity-shaped talisman has placed him in the deadly sights of a vicious Romulan warlord, they take tentative steps to explore the attraction depicted in the final moments of Picard season one.

Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land will be released on February 22nd. You can pre-order on Amazon/Audible.

The second season of Star Trek: Picard will debut on March 3.

My take… great to hear these voices, but man it’s hard to write compelling audio dramas without narration.

I prefer audio dramas without narration. As long as they aren’t too obvious about having the characters explaining everything that is in front of them.

Agreed. It takes a deft hand, but without narration they’re usually BETTER. Doctor Who audios are good, but the gold standard is still the Star Wars radio drama by Brian Daley.

You can do it, but action audio dramas are a problem. It should be a “Shuttlepod One”-style episode…

Preorder Complete!

I am so so so excited for this!

Less than two minutes and they’re using swear words. I’m no prude, but it’s lazy writing. Oh right, NuTrek.

“Swear words?? What?! Dialog written the way the majority of people actually talk in real life? Not in MY Trek! That’s LAZY.” 🙄

No matter how hard I try (and I was MEGA excited to see her enter the series as she was a fantastic character back in Voyager), I just can’t accept this new version of Seven. I get they’re saying that she’s regained some of her humanity since Voyager got home, but she’s lost what made her a good character. To me, she’s now OUT of character. Just listening to that sound clip above, it just isn’t the Seven we know. Her mannerisms in Picard just didn’t fit. It’s like Jeri agreed to be in the series only if she could discard the Spock/Data-like quality to her old character and develop Seven into just another shooting-shouting human character. Even just retaining a hint of her old character traits would’ve been better than discarding them completely.
