May everyone who celebrates Captain Picard Day have a wonderful day!
May everyone who celebrates Captain Picard Day have a wonderful day! The day has been made even more special as a result of the revelation that Season 2 of Star Trek: Picard will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and a limited-edition Blu-ray Steelbook on October 4! Thanks to Paramount+ for making this announcement!
It will only be another four months before you will be able to relive all of your favorite moments from the second season of the critically acclaimed series, coupled with a quantity of supplementary content that is large enough to fill an entire galaxy.
In addition to the ten episodes that make up the season, the extras that will be provided will include nearly an hour of never-before-seen featurettes, deleted sequences, and a gag reel, which is everyone’s favorite new addition. Is there anything more pristine than Patrick Stewart’s infectious laugh? Not in my opinion.
If you purchase the Blu-ray special edition Steelbook, you will not only have access to a wealth of additional content, but you will also receive a piece of art that is fit for a collector and is exquisitely constructed.
On the front of the cover is some important artwork from the second season, which features Jean-Luc Picard (played by Stewart) and his lifelong adversary, Q (played by John de Lancie). The reverse features the recognizable delta emblem, which has become and will continue to be associated with the Star Trek world.
On the interior, a vibrant Los Angeles of the future invites viewers to delve head first into the series; and since there is no traffic, we’re hoping this is a preview of what the future holds for the City of Angels. When you look more closely, you’ll notice that the delta symbol emerges once more, this time in the form of the highway lanes that connect tourists to the city.
The second season of Star Trek: Picard was exactly as successful as the first season of the show. In the second season, Picard and his crew embarked on a mission to save the Earth of the 21st century from complete catastrophe by traveling to the depths of the galaxy. Alison Pill, Jeri Ryan, Michelle Hurd, Evan Evagora, Orla Brady, Isa Briones, and Santiago Cabrera all starred in the season alongside Stewart.
Brent Spiner also appeared in the part of an ancestor of Noonien Soong, a role he originated on Star Trek: The Next Generation as the character who invented the AI Data, whom Spiner also portrayed.
In this role, Brent Spiner played an older version of Noonien Soong. Picard’s second season featured a number of recognizable visitors, including Whoopi Goldberg’s Guinan and John de Lancie’s Q, both of whom had recurring roles.
In case you were wondering where the celebration of Captain Picard Day got its start, it was in 2007 when fans of the man who commanded the USS Enterprise first started doing so.
The children on board the spaceship celebrated the captain by making arts and crafts, which is where the data comes from. The episode was titled “The Pegasus” and it was part of Season 7 of Next Generation.
The date of June 16 was chosen because the opening narrative revealed the stardate to be 47457.1, and astute fans were able to translate those digits into a date in the Gregorian calendar.
Whether you are familiar with the concept of Picard Day or have been celebrating it for years, the news that Season 2 of Picard will soon be available on DVD and Blu-ray is the ideal way to commemorate this significant milestone. Make sure that you circle October 4 on your calendar so that you don’t miss a second of the excitement – or any of the embarrassing mistakes!
