Let’s tell you a bit about the comeback of Picard after his retirement in the Starfleet. Take a look at the plot of the series.
At the end of the 24th century, and 14 years after the retirement of Jean-Luc Picard from the Starfleet, He was living a quiet and peaceful life in his vineyard, Chateau Picard. He had recurring dreams about Data(Commander), He meets the mysterious women Dahj, whom he discovers is an artificially synthesized human-made with Data’s mind by Dr.MADDOX which makes her his daughter. Afterall, Dahj is murdered by Romulans. Picard comes to know that she has a twin (SOJI) and then he makes it his mission to preserve the legacy of his old friend.
While the mystery of Dahj and Soji’s pasts is yet to be unwoven. Plenty of viewers are busy trying to unweave a different mystery: just where the heck they’ve seen Isa Briones before.
Is it any good?
