Star Trek: Picard - 1 x 8 - Broken Pieces:
Penultimate story of season 1.
Interesting seeing holos of Rios not just the EMH as she learnt about his history.
Picard says their destination of Deep Space 12, why not DS9.
Fascinating bit with the Zhat Vash.

Star Trek: Picard - 1 x 9 - Et in Arcadia Ego Part 1:
Part 1 of the season 1 finale.
Brent Spiner guest stars but not as Data but as Dr Altan Inigo Soong, the son of Data's creator who also was played by Spiner.
Things ultimately did not bode well with Romulans coming and Picard taken prisoner when he did not agreed with the plan in place.
Quite a cliffhanger with that.

Star Trek: Picard - 1 x 10 - Et in Arcadia Ego Part 2:
Conclusion to the season 1 finale.
Thought this started off dull.
Not bad how Oh was dealt with by Riker's late entrance.
Picard dies when he succumbs to the problem in his brain and is brought to life in a "golem" body. Have no idea what to feel about this.
Enthralling that in between Picard meets with Data in the simulation.

Released in 2019, this is a retrospective on Deep Space Nine (1993-99).
This was released on May 13 2019 almost 20 years after DS9 came to an end on June 2 1999.
When TNG aired its finale All Good Things... came the documentary Journey's End: The Saga of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
What We Left Behind feels to me like the DS9 equivalent, albeit overdue, to the said TNG documentary.
What We Left Behind is a variation in name to the DS9 finale What You Leave Behind.
What We Left Behind was the idea by Ira Steven Behr who had been showrunner for its last four seasons.
Much of the perspective in making DS9 is presented by Behr.
Overall the contributors expressed their show wasn't getting the love they thought it deserved when they were making it and I do appreciate that.
On TNG alum Michael Dorn being brought in as Worf on DS9, Armin Shimerman (Quark) was in particular irked about this as he felt that it was an acknowledgement that DS9 wasn't doing well on its own and therefore needed someone from the perceived more popular TNG to spice things up.
Series co-creator Rick Berman did not remember whether the decision to bring in Worf was because they wanted him in particular or in having a Klingon on DS9.
Kira is said to be like a terrorist in leading the Bajoran resistance against the Cardassians.
Did not surprise me that it was noted that all this was shown before 9/11.
Nana Visitor (Kira) says that she does not know whether they would have still done any of that in a post-9/11 world but believes they would have done it differently.
Behr noted how Homeland (2011-20) dealt with terrorism through its central character of Brody.
However the one show that wasn't addressed in any great detail is rival space station Babylon 5 (1993-98).
B5 gets a brief mention when Aron Eisenberg (Nog) read a letter from a disgruntled fan who said that both space stations are just as bad as the other.
Sadly Eisenberg passed away four months after the release of this documentary in September 2019.
Would have been interesting had the rivalry of the space stations been addressed.
B5 creator J. Michael Straczynski wasn't pleased about DS9 as he had earlier pitched his idea about B5 to Paramount who rejected it and ended up doing DS9.
I believe that JMS wasn't too happy with the way DS9 ended as it was not dissimilar to how it ended B5.
It was interesting seeing Behr talking with other DS9 writers on a hypothetical eighth season.
Intriguing seeing this development on the hypothetical season opener culminating with Sisko's return at the cliffhanger.
Interesting and appreciating the experiences those had on the show.
It was certainly sad and tragic hearing Terry Farrell's (Jadzia Dax) account on the circumstances of why she left the series at the end of season 6.
Amusing the end credits had Behr and Visitor talking about the things this documentary had left (no pun intended) out.
