Tread Perilously — Star Trek Picard: Monsters

tp1400-1Tread Perilously’s month of modern Star Trek continues with the lowest rated episode of Star Trek: Picard, “Monsters.”

After being hit with a car by Noonian Soong’s ancestor, Jean-Luc Picard’s mind gets lost in his robot body and it is up to Tallinn to find him within the inner recesses of his consciousness. Meanwhile, Picard takes an hour of therapy with a familiar-looking Starfleet counselor. Will their discussion shed any light on Picard’s attachment issues? And back in the real world, Seven and Raffi try to find the semi-assimilated Dr. Jurtati — who will soon become the Borg Queen — and Rios debates letting his new friends know that he is from the future.

Justin attempts to construct a more accurate representation of Picard’s mind. Jay Karnes makes a welcome appearance. Erik’s disappointment in this episode of Picard is palpable. The pair make an unplanned detour to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Erik also veers into a discussion of Stanley Kubrick. Jeri Ryan once again proves to be MVP. The episode’s structure gets criticized despite Justin feeling the pace was on point. Patrick Stewart’s age earns a comment. Stereotypical liquors are discussed and Justin offers the most extended sports metaphor ever used on Tread Perilously.
