At the halfway point of this first season of Star Trek: Picard manufactures in the 55 minutes of this The Impossible Box is not only the best episode of this season so far but also the intent and the script goes straight to the heart of the franchise as originally designed by the great Gene Rodenberry.
The episode is structured in a simple, but effective, relying on two pillars: Picard and Soji. The first relives the traumatic experience of a new contact – forgive the pun – with the Borg, while the second one slowly understands that there is definitely something deeper wrong, and a dummy in his past and in himself.
The episode is tense, claustrophobic, but at the centre there is a reflection so dear to the whole of science fiction and alternate history, one linked to another that is stripped of its negative character – while not denying the brutality – but instead is scaled as a living being and as such has its own proper dignity.
This is then the difference between the mission of Picard and the Romulans, who see in God a simple machine, so perfect not only to adapt but also to forget to be, a prophet of an apocalypse robotics.
Where the man ends and starts the machine, where does my freedom to be and begins that of the other?
