The CBS All Access original series, Star Trek: Picard Season One, starring Patrick Stewart is beaming onto home video later this fall.
Star Trek: Picard saw the return of Patrick Stewart to the role of Jean-Luc Picard, the role he played for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation from 1987 – 1994 and four feature films.
Star Trek: Picard Season 1 will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD, on October 6th in both standard and Steelbook-packaging. The season one Blu-ray will contain all ten episodes along with a number of special features including behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and commentary tracks. The Blu-ray set will also include the Short Trek prequel “Children of Mars,” that debuted on CBS All Access this past January.
To see the entire breakdown of what’s being included with the bonus features you can check out that information below.
Personally, I enjoyed season one of Picard. Were there a few things that I was not happy with over the course of the ten episodes? Yes, but the issues I had with the show was not enough to say I disliked it.
The seventh episode entitled “Nepenthe” was without a doubt my favorite episode of season one. Nepenthe saw Picard travel to a planet where he reunites with Will Riker and Deanna Troi. The episode may not have had a lot action, but it made me realize why I liked the Next Generation so much and why I would love to see Riker get his own show someday.
The emotional moment of season one came in the final fifteen minutes of the season finale episode, “Et in Arcadia Ego: Part 2”. I will not give away any details in case there still might be a few of you who have not yet watched Picard, but it involves Data. If you were not satisfied with how Data’s story arc concluded in Nemesis, then this episode may or may not bring you satisfaction. I know speaking for myself that I am satisfied with what they did, just be ready with the tissues.
