Star Trek: Picard Producers Reveal Essential TNG Episodes
Star Trek: Picard kicked off recently, reintroducing the world to Captain Jean-Luc Picard. For those who need a quick refresher on some key pieces of Star Trek lore that will pop up during the show, Picard's Executive Producers have got you covered.
Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin sat down to answer some questions about the show. When asked what Star Trek movies or shows would come into play during Picard, Kurtzman answered, "We've designed it so that if you're coming in cold with no knowledge of Star Trek, you're going to be able to drop in and you should be able to catch up quickly. I think if you're going to watch anything, watching 'The Best of Both Worlds' Part 1 and 2 is very significant. 'The Inner Light' is very significant. 'I, Borg' is very significant. These are all Next Gen episodes."Click the button below to start this article in quick view. Start now
He also clarified that some films would be important in Star Trek: Picard as well. Kurtzman added, "Our 2009 Star Trek movie has planted seeds that play out here on the show...'Nemesis' is his relationship with Data. Those are probably good places to start."
