I didn't find much to like in the Picard show. Is Picard the hero of the show or was Soji (sp?)? For me it's that there is a hero is what was lost from earlier Trek shows. I didn't know it was planned as a 10 episode season, they didn't have enough story to fill ten episodes. The most nostalgic episode, number 7, was basically added in as filler, from an article I read. The plot was basically the same as the Mass Effect video game. I would have much preferred Picard meeting and overcoming the threat at the site the Romulans encountered it. I found the scenes at the very end to completely be devoid of stakes since it was obvious what was going to happen. I'm glad that you found things to enjoy.
