Star Trek: Picard in Entertainment Posted 2 hours ago 2 minutes ago, Werthead said: Interesting trivia: Picard marks the third time that Jean-Luc Picard is the first character to appear and speak in a Star Trek show. He previously did the same thing in both TNG and DS9 (albeit as Locutus in the latter). Because it makes things too easy Star Trek has a horrible history of following up logically on its own inventions. Remember the Season 2 episode of TNG where they cured ageing through the transporter and then immediately forgot about it? Those are both described as freak events where by rights they should be dead, so would be too risky to use on civilians. What bothers me is that the “too dangerous” excuse flies out the window if the people it is “too risky” to save that way would end up dead. In any event seeking logic and consistency from Trek technobabble is a hopeless endeavor.
