When is this show going to start?

Watching Picard go rogue, it's hard not to be reminded of his legendary predecessor, Captain James T. Kirk.

It's fine enough, and perfectly watchable at that, but I'm looking forward to Picard actually getting started.

It's filled to the brim with new lore and exposition and features another extended bout of table-setting. But it also features plenty of Patrick Stewart acting in one-on-one scenes, his forte, and puts him opposite performers who can hold their own.

"Maps and Legends" is an even better exploration of his character than the first episode and I can not wait for episode three.

Admiral Picard starring in a Romulan spy thriller? Yes please and thank you.

"Maps and Legends" brings us to the first peak of a roller-coaster that I cannot wait to go spiraling down. I love these characters, I love this world, and I am ready for this adventure. Let's go.

Coming in at forty two minutes this is the epitome of polished storytelling as there is nothing unnecessary on screen. This might be big budget tent pole television but it's used to convey meaning, create mood and further plot.

The episode's biggest problem is that it sacrifices the drama of the moment in favour of teeing things up for another day.

Two episodes in, Picard has been the opposite of Narek's slowgoing strategy: fast and impactful.

The second episode of "Picard" felt slower. It was table setting before Picard heads off to space. But it proved that the showrunners aren't forgetting the past episodes of "Star Trek."

Opening with the flashback to the Mars attack lets us glimpse the androids that opened the planet's defense forces... it gives us a shocking window into the state of Android sentience and rights in this current era of the Federation.
