Are you excited about the return of Captain Picard?!?! We are!! Do you have a friend/spouse/pet who might need a little refresher course on who this Picard guy is and what the heck is going on with these Borg people? Well, we put together a list of episodes to watch while you're waiting. Think of it as a little Star Trek Picard primer based on what we know so far about the show. You have a few months to get ready but if you don’t want to marathon all of TNG & Voyager, this watch list should help.
First-- the basics. You’ll be introduced to Captain Picard, Data, and the Borg.
- Star Trek TNG - S1. E13. Datalore
- Star Trek TNG - S2. E9. Measure of a Man.
- Star Trek TNG - S3. E26. & S4. E1. Best of Both Worlds (parts 1 & 2)
- Star Trek TNG - S4. E2. Family

Finally, I think the 24th-century events in this film will matter a lot-- specifically what happens to the planet Romulus.
