STAR TREK: PICARD is a new take on Jean Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) as it takes place years after STAR TREK: NEMESIS where Picard is retired and running a vineyard in France. He is approached by a mysterious young woman (with ties to his former first officer Data) who needs his help. Picard is thrust into a conspiracy that involves androids, Romulans, and people who used to be Borg. He gathers together a small crew and bumps into a jaded 7 of 9 (Jeri Ryan). STAR TREK: PICARD isn't like the STAR TREK shows you have seen before from years past. It is a gritty take on the universe and a sequel to STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. The Federation isn't the same one that Picard knows and the Romulans struggle with their own factions since the destruction of their home world. A few familiar faces from STAR TREK: NEXT GENERATION and STAR TREK: VOAYGER show up in addition to plenty of new characters. This new series takes place at least twenty years after STAR TREK: NEMESIS.

Featurettes:
MAKE IT SO (DISC 1)- a behind-the-scenes featurette of how STAR TREK: PICARD came to be made
PICARD PROPS- a look at the props of STAR TREK: PICARD
SET ME UP- a look at the sets and set design of the new STAR TREK series
THE MOTLEY CREW- all about the cast and the characters they play
ALIENS ALIVE: THE XBs

FINAL ANALYSIS: STAR TREK: PICARD is a wonderful and gritty new take on the STAR TREK universe. I think how the writers of the series decided to take a risk and not to boldly go where the franchise has went before. This is a great blu-ray set and I can't wait for season 2 to be made.
