This season of Picard is some of the most enjoyable Star Trek ever.

We need a spinoff series featuring Captain Shaw and the Titan. I love him. His motto: “To boldly go where no one has gone before … kvetching the whole time.”

Todd Stashwick, who plays Shaw, is a terrific character actor; I’ve had my eye on him since he played the villain on a series called “The Riches,” that aired briefly 2007-8, starring Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver. (They played Americans and the series was set in the US, oddly.)

Michelle Forbes is another great character actor. More of Commander Ro Laren, please.

I love the chemistry between Raffi and Worf.

Michael Dorn has appeared on more Trek episodes than any other actor. More than William Shatner, more than Patrick Stewart, more than anyone. Worf is the Detective Munch of the 24th Century.
