Star Trek: Picard (2023): S03E05 – Imposters


Star Trek: Picard is an American web television series created for CBS All Access by Kirsten Beyer, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon and Alex Kurtzman.

It is the eighth series in the Star Trek franchise and centres on the character Jean-Luc Picard.


Jack’s visions begin showing him murdering the crew. Riker returns command of the Titan to Shaw. Shaw contacts Starfleet, who promptly send the USS Intrepid to intercept them and take Picard and Riker into custody. The Starfleet officer heading the security team is Ro Laren, who betrayed Starfleet years earlier by defecting to the Maquis, but returned after her imprisonment. Beverly conducts the impostor’s autopsy, discovering the Changelings have evolved to hold their shape longer and evade body scanning technology, and notifies Picard, but Ro drags him into the holodeck. Ro suspects the Changeling conspiracy compromised Starfleet’s highest levels and both Intrepid and Titan. Picard realizes he still trusts her. They reconcile, before Ro gives Picard her Bajoran earring. Ro pilots her shuttle, but Changeling saboteurs plant a bomb onboard, forcing her to steer into the Intrepid, sacrificing herself. The saboteurs attempt to transport out with Jack, but he is overcome by his visions and shoots them all dead. Picard and Riker realise Ro’s earring contains the intelligence she gathered, and a communicator. Worf and Raffi continue their investigation into the M’Talas Prime attack, finding the Vulcan criminal Krinn, who forces them to duel. Raffi seemingly defeats Worf, but Worf manages to kill Krinn’s minions, forcing Krinn to give vital information about the attack. Worf contacts Picard and Riker via Ro’s earring, just as the Titan flees the Intrepid. Jack admits to Beverly he thinks there is something wrong with himself.
