Star Trek: Picard bounces back from a tepid season two premiere to hit its stride mid-season. The premise has Admiral Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his new crew traveling back in time to 2024 Earth. They must prevent Q (John de Lancie) from changing a historic event that turns the Federation into ruthless oppressors at the dawn of the 25th century. They arrive in a Los Angeles burning from climate change, overrun by crime, poverty, and the ruthless treatment of illegal immigrants. The series plunges forthright into hot-button social and political issues. It also tackles mental health problems. A decidedly liberal take may offend some audiences. But Star Trek has always pushed boundaries by using science fiction to address division.
