Ep 78: Shades of Gold (Picard S1E9)

Episode 78

24th March 2020

When the orchids bloom and a new planet is found J.L. and Co. have two spots to visit before the Romulan’s arrive. But when Synthtopia turns out to be a little more like Rubicun III this penultimate episode goes in a direction you may not have expected. Will Picard have to share a cell? Do all synths share a cell? If a synth can mind meld, what does that say about Vulcans? It’s the episode that’s possibly the evil twin of a two-parter!

About the show

The unofficial, irreverent and filthy aftershow for all the new Star Trek television: Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, Short Treks, and anything else they throw at us. Each Tuesday after a new episode of Star Trek, Adam and Ben recap and review while making each other laugh. Check out our other show, The Greatest Generation, a Star Trek podcast by a couple of guys who are a little bit embarrassed to have a Star Trek podcast!
