I enjoyed season 1 of Picard except for the unoriginal Mass Effect plot, and him dying and becoming a robot. Season 2 on the other hand is really bad fanfiction. I have no idea how they thought this was a good story or worth 10 episodes to tell. The only good is the actresses ability to overcome the bad plot they’ve been given. And the female roles all shine and are wonderful. But Picard is a jumbled mess and basically unrecognizable. And its the furthest thing from Star Trek, that is why i call it fanfiction its decent as any other show but it isn’t Star Trek.
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is essentially the same story as Dune, but better.
