Doing away with the misery of the first 2 seasons, Picard has seemingly moved on from his most prominent personal drama. He’s settling down (in his nineties, but still) and attempting a long-term relationship with Laris, a Romulan with whom he takes a bigger shot at this bond at the end of season 2. Suddenly, he receives an encrypted distress call from Dr. Beverly Crusher, a previous romantic link of his, and with Laris’ encouragement, he sets out to help her, believing that he’s the only one she can trust.

Picard gets his old first officer William Riker involved as well, and the latter hatches a hare-brained scheme to redirect the USS Titan toward the source of the call. On the vessel, they find the newly-official Starfleet Commander Seven of Nine (or Annika Hansen) serving as first officer to Captain Liam Shaw.

Despite the arrogant Captain’s attempts to contain the antics of these two aging Starfleet legends, Picard and Riker can change the ship’s course and deploy a shuttle to Crusher’s aid. Little do they know that their rescue only serves to bring Crusher’s enemies closer, and a ship of uncertain origin is revealed to be in pursuit. What’s more, it appears Dr. Crusher has a second son with a conspicuously English accent, which, unlike Wesley, indicates Picard may have left more of a legacy than he anticipated.
