Star Trek: Picard | Season 1, Episode 5 Recap: “Stardust City Rag”

Let Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) be your interfacers with this week’s Star Trek: Picard, bringing all the action and drama to your ears with a hefty amount of panache.

The two get down and dirty with “Stardust City Rag,” an episode that sees the crew mounting a ramshackle heist to finally get Bruce Maddox in their tow. Seven of Nine and Raffi both address unfinished business in their respective ways. And it all culminates in a twist ending that changes the face of the show to come.
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.

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.
