The series finale of Paramount+’s Star Trek: Picard series is here. The third and final season culminates with an episode titled “The Last Generation”. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 10 has the Star Trek: The Next Generation crew reunited with the USS Enterprise-D one last time. What originally started as a look at Jean-Luc Picard’s (Sir Patrick Stewart) life has become a nostalgic field trip with the original team. Are we excited? Yes! Trek Central has preview images, trailers and more.
Star Trek: Picard’s finale episode will be an hour long. According to Terry Matalas, the showrunner, it’s a “very full hour” of Star Trek. Perhaps we’ll get more cameos from Star Trek legends? We know Tim Russ might return as Captain Tuvok, hopefully, the real one this time. How about other Star Trek legends, though? Who else might help Jean-Luc Picard defeat the Borg once and for all? Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 10 is written and directed by Terry Matalas.
“In a desperate last stand, Jean-Luc Picard and generations of crews both old and new fight together to save the galaxy from the greatest threat they’ve ever faced as the saga of Star Trek: The Next Generation comes to a thrilling, epic conclusion.”Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 10 – Official Episode Synopsis
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 10 – Preview Pictures
For the final time, we have preview pictures for Star Trek: Picard. Sadly, these are not the most groundbreaking in terms of a preview. However, it does make sense. The show’s creatives are careful not to spoil what is coming up in the finale episode. It makes sense, but all Star Trek fans are eager to see something. Regardless, there are some fantastic shots of William T. Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Mr Worf (Michael Dorn) and Jean-Luc on the USS Enterprise-D bridge. Only four pictures in total, I am afraid.
We can also see Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) and Mr Data (Brent Spiner) at the front of the bridge, working at their consoles. Doctor Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) seems to have been told to stand next to Worf. Sadly it seems like Crusher has no dedicated station on where to stand. If only the producers had decided to recreate the upgraded Star Trek: Generations bridge. Then there would be an extra set for Crusher. I guess she could sit at the back. Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis) assumes her old chair by Picard.
The Ready Room – Preview Clip
Last week’s The Ready Room after show has given us a sneak peek at Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 10. We’re thrown back into the action as The Next Generation crew commands the USS Enterprise-D. I question why they returned to Earth, given that a fully-fledged Starfleet armada is just waiting there. However, it does appear that the crew did call for help. Mr Data (Brent Spiner) mentions how emergency hails have gone silent. So maybe we won’t see a giant fleet v fleet scene this week?
Recent Star Trek seasons have had a habit of ending seasons with giant fleets coming together. Many fans have pointed out how this season’s final plot seems similar to other Star Trek shows. Specifically, the fleet’s being taken over. For example, Star Trek: Prodigy recently ended its first season with a fleet battle. Star Trek: Discovery also ended its second season with a rogue fleet. Have people been watching Battlestar Galactica on repeat or something? I joke, of course, but you can see it.
The Borg appears to have been hiding in plain sight—the USS Enterprise-D ventures to Jupiter, where a Borg vessel seems to be hiding. You’ve got to wonder how Starfleet did not detect this beforehand. Though perhaps a transwarp conduit has only recently appeared here or something. I’m sure there will be some technobabble explanation that Star Trek will provide like always. Can we also appreciate how cool it looks to have the Enterprise-D coming out of warp once again? Seriously, it’s a fantastic model of the famous ship.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 10 marks the end of the Star Trek: Picard series. It’s been a long road, but we’ve finally got there. It’s a bittersweet ending, as the third season finally allowed the show to find its feet. However, I wish it would stop taking jabs at the past two seasons at various points. Regardless of how it goes, this will be a very jam-packed episode. The finale episode of the series has a lot of things to do. It will need to conclude the series, but also the episode and season plot line as well.
Thinking about it, the episode synopsis may hint at some surprise cameos. We know there are some still to come in Star Trek: Picard, it seems. However, who could actually appear? Notice the synopsis says, “crews both old and new”. Could this mean we’re about to get another generation of Star Trek to come to save the day? Seriously, all we need is Admiral Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) to show up to help out. She dealt with the Borg well last time.
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 airs on Thursdays via Paramount+ for those in the United States. Additionally, on Crave and the CTV Sci-Fi channel for viewers in Canada. However, new episodes air Fridays via Amazon Prime Video in international regions like the United Kingdom. Paramount+ also streams the episodes in select locations, such as Italy, Germany and France.
