Entitled “No Win Situation”, Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 4 maintains the high watermark established by the previous chapter, with another episode that will please Trekkers as it is faithful to the tone of Star Trek established in past movies and TV series. The premise here may be familiar – the Titan is disabled, floating in the Nebula, while steadily fall into a gravity well, which will destroy the ship and crew. Picard, Riker and the rest have to work together to find a solution against seemingly impossible odds.
Throughout Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Ep 4, there are numerous references to Star Trek’s glorious past and this chapter uses them as a pivot to inform the current dilemma.The episode titles recalls “The Kobayashi Maru” (first seen in The Wrath of Khan, of course) – a Starfleet Academy test that only the finest strategists are able to best. In whatever downtime available to the crew, Picard exploits the opportunity to get to know his son, Jack, better even as Captain Shaw bitterly recounts darker moments of Picard’s career that impacted him in the past.
Ultimately, of course, the crew do figure out a way out of their predicament in a Trek logical manner, that is also immensely satisfying! But questions remain. Who is Vadic? What is the secret that Jack is hiding? More excitement ahead in the classic Trek style ahead! Engage!
