Star Trek: Picard | Season 1, Episode 3 Recap: “The End is the Beginning” with Rob Cesternino

As Jean-Luc Picard has recruited more people to his cause, so have Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) added special guest Rob Cesternino (@RobCesternino) to their crew!

Diehard TNG Rob gives his thoughts on Star Trek: Picard so far before the trio give their thoughts on “The End is the Beginning.” They get into the new characters introduced in Raffi Musiker and Chris Rios, track Picard’s trip back into space, and try to prognosticate what’s to come without the use of Romulan tarot cards.

Jess and Mike will be bringing recaps of Star Trek: Picard every weekend throughout season one. For feedback on the episodes, reach out to them or @PostShowRecaps on Twitter or email

About Star Trek: Picard …

CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Picard featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven years on Star Trek: The Next Generation and across several feature films. Taking place 20 years after Picard’s last appearance and seemingly estranged from Starfleet, a mysterious visitor turns his life upside-down and starts a journey that kickstarts a brand-new chapter in his life.

Alongside Stewart, Star Trek: Picard also stars Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora. It will also feature appearances from previous Star Trek actors and characters, including Brent Spiner as Data, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, Jonathan Del Arco as Hugh, Jonathan Frakes as William Riker, and Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi. Star Trek: Picard airs weekly on CBS All Access in the United States and is distributed concurrently internationally by CBS Studios International on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories and in Canada on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and OTT service Crave.
