Star Trek: Picard Season 3 is heating up, with only four episodes left! Most of the Star Trek: The Next Generation crew have been reunited. However, this week’s episode preview seems to up the stakes. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 7 is titled “Dominion”. Therefore, might we expect more Star Trek: Deep Space Nine easter eggs? Episode 7 is directed by Deborah Kampmeier and written by Jane Maggs.
Like each week, the official synopsis gives us an idea of where this episode will go. However, we’ve also got to break down some of the preview content. Trek Central has a sneak peek at the upcoming episode. We have a clip and preview pictures to build our Star Trek theories for this week. Check them all out below.
“Crippled, cornered, and out of options, Picard stages a gambit to trap Vadic and reveal her true motive. A gamble that puts the Titan in the crosshairs, and forces Picard and Beverly to question every moral code they’ve ever held.”tar Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 7 “Dominion” – Episode Synopsis
Preview Pictures – Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 6
Immediately I’m getting the impression that the USS Titan-A crew are fugitives on the run. They are essentially are, especially being on the run from Starfleet. However, looking at the preview pictures for Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 7, many characters are now wearing the Starfleet uniform jacket. Take a look at both Jeri Ryan’s and Todd Stashwick’s pictures.
There is also a picture of Jack Cusher (Ed Speleers) and Ensign LaForge (Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut) in the Titan’s corridor. If we look at the image of Vadic and her goons, perhaps they are looking at them. We’ve also got a fantastic shot of Jeri Ryan as Commander Seven in the Titan’s captain’s chair. Perhaps Seven is finally getting the time to shine in commanding the starship. Or maybe Episode 7 is where Liam Shaw finally bites the bullet many think is coming for him.
Gates McFadden and Sir Patrick Stewart can be seen as Doctor Crusher and Admiral Picard. However, LeVar Burton is also seen as Geordi La Forge. Notable both Raffi (Michelle Hurd) and Worf (Michael Dorn) are missing from promotional material this week. Therefore, I am wondering if they have gone off to continue searching for Riker and Deanna Troi. Returning to Jeri Ryan’s Captain chair moment, we can see ship wreckage out the back of the conference room. Hmm, I wonder…
Exclusive Clip of Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 7
Each week, The Ready Room aftershow gives us a preview of what is coming up. Therefore, this week expands on what the villains of Star Trek: Picard Season 3 are up to. Amanda Plummer’s Captain Vadic may be the main villain that Jean-Luc and the crew are fighting. However, we’re aware that someone else is pulling the strings. It seems Vadic’s employment by “The Face” might be cut short. Additionally, it seems like the villains are getting desperate regarding a timeframe for their plan.
Whoever this “Face” is, they seem to be able to torture Vadic rather well. However, we’ve not got a clear idea of who this unknown foe is. They clearly want Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers). But another detail sticks out. “The Face”, says, “You and your kind”. Vadic and her crew are Changelings. Therefore, is “The Face” not a Changeling? If so, what species are they? Perhaps another subspecies of the Changelings we are aware of? Given Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 7’s title, might we learn more about the overall species?
This week we’ll need to see more of William T. Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis). However, we’ve already seen a glimpse in one of the trailers of the pair’s conversation. It seems Deanna is not happy about Will running off to help Jean-Luc. We’ve seen part of this conflict already. Will is running away from his family problems. Now that both are captured, we’ll see a resolution between the pair. Hopefully, relationship troubles are never nice to watch for viewers.
Additionally, I have my theories for what is going on. We’ve seen Captain Vadic onboard the USS Titan-A with her goons in the trailers. However, is this the episode we see that in? There are also trailer seems of Commander Seven (Jeri Ryan) and Captain Shaw (Todd Stashwick) fighting someone in the hallways. One of the press pictures is Vadic in a Starfleet corridor. Then it would make sense to presume the ship gets boarded this week.
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.
