The Star Trek Picard Cast is an in-depth, long-form, community-driven episode discussion of Star Trek: Picard, the new series shown on CBS All Access in the US, CTV Sci-Fi Channel & Crave TV in Canada and Amazon Prime everywhere else. We’re Brian Meloche and Ruthie Rink; we're two long-time Star Trek fans, especially of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Star Trek: Picard – Season 1 Episode 7 – Nepenthe

We’re back with extensive coverage of the seventh episode of Star Trek: Picard, Season 1 Episode 7, titled Nepenthe. This episode was written by Samantha Humphrey and Michael Chabon, and it was directed by Doug Aarniokoski.

Fred’s Pics!

Fred from The Netherlands was kind enough to send us images for this episode, and we used many of them here! Our cover image this week is one of Fred’s “Visual Yeses”.

We have additional feedback for the first six episodes of the season…

We have feedback for the last episode, S1E6 The Impossible Box, the previous episode, S1E5 Stardust City Rag and some more general feedback on the entire season. Discussion about Nepenthe begins at 51 minutes 2 seconds. We have used chapters again this week. If your podcast app supports them, it will allow you to skip ahead to the section you want easier.
