Questioning Picard

Image result for picard tv showPicard, the new Star Trek show is about to launch and we’ve got questions! Matt Carroll, of the MCU and Star Trek Universe Podcasts joins Matthew to discuss the ethical questions we think Picard will explore.


Has Data’s fear of a race of slave androids come to pass? Are the Borg still the enemy? What questions will the Borg and the Androids raise about who is a person? What has decades of  war and the threat of war done to the Federation, and will this show feel more like the Roddenberry shows than the Abrams Trekverse?
