“The Third Season of Star Trek: Picard Turns Its Back on the Future”

At The Escapist, Darren Mooney writes about nostalgia the future in the last season of Star Trek: Picard. “The Star Trek universe used to seem vast and infinite, populated by hundreds of individuals who all had their own stories. More than that, these characters had lives and relationships that extended beyond what the audience saw on screen. The universe was impossibly large, filled with wonder and potential. There was always more to see and explore, new wonders to consider and contemplate….There is something depressing and reductive in the way in which Picard season 3 so insistently narrows the scope of its storytelling and its narrative, as if desperate to assure audiences that there is absolutely nothing important about the Star Trek universe that they don’t already know.”
