SPOILERS for episode 9 of Star Trek: Picard
The first season of Star Trek: Picard is almost at an end, meaning soon we can all stop worrying about the elderly Jean-Luc’s safety. Hopefully, the finale will find him playing Bingo or taking a nice Epsom salt bath or enjoying some holographic Matlock away from the dangers of outer space.
In the last few episodes we learned that a secret cabal of Romulans is trying to destroy all synthetic life. Why? Because of the “Admonition” an ancient message that warns of the inherent danger posed by androids. The visions it causes are so extreme, those who bear witness to them are instantly driven mad; clawing their eyes out and bashing their heads in as if they’d just left a screening of Cats.
