Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) tip their caps to Coppelius on this week’s episode of Star Trek: Picard, entitled “Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1.”

The first part of the season one finale has Picard and his crew finally reach a planet populated by synthetics, as well as a surprisingly familiar face. As our heroes get their bearings in this new world, so too are its inhabitants sizing up the looming Romulan threat. It all ends in a way that raises the stakes for what’s sure to be a jam-packed finale.

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.
