Warning: SPOILERS for Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer #2!The Romulan’s slave race often called the Remans have returned in a comic book that takes place in between seasons two and three of Paramount+’s Star Trek: Picard, organising their presence when the present returns to screens.
The Remans, and their unlucky relationship with the Romulans, have been first revealed within the 2009 movie Star Trek: Nemesis. However what made the Remans really compelling in Nemesis wasn’t that they have been enslaved by the Romulans, however as a result of they shared a connection to Jean-Luc Picard. The Romulans initially created a clone of Picard to be used in a future mission towards the Federation, however that plan was quickly scrapped, and the Romulans exiled their clone to die on the slave planet of Remus with the Remans. Finally, he survived and rose via the ranks as Shinzon, finally turning into the chief of their folks’s riot towards the Romulans. Picard and Shinzon have been destined to fulfill – and meet they did.
Sadly, the Remans have solely made a handful of different appearances over time since their debut in Nemesis. That’s, till Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer #2 (by writers Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, artist Angel Hernandez, colorist J.D. Mettler and letterer Neil Uyetake) introduced them again. Now, Picard finds himself marooned on a planet the place a bunch of Remans have been stranded for years, ever since their fellow Romulans left them there to die after they pillaged and polluted the planet.
Stargazer Is a Good Continuation of Star Trek: Picard Season 2
It is a good growth that adheres to the extremely profitable and efficient method from Paramount’s Picard sequence. The TV present not solely focuses on the eponymous Federation officer by displaying him tackle new adventures however brings in characters from Star Trek: The Subsequent Technology who shared necessary relationships with Picard. Undoubtedly, the largest names come from season two such because the omnipotent Q and the mysterious Guinan. Q has at all times been alarmingly intent on terrorizing Picard, an obsession that has bewildered Picard himself for many years, whereas Guinan has constantly served as Picard’s most intimate confidante. The comics at the moment are persevering with this development by introducing a species as soon as led by Picard’s personal clone.
Clearly, Picard and Shinzon’s relationship impacted the captain on a number of ranges in Nemesis. As an evil man, each questionable motion that Shinzon made drastically conflicted with all the pieces Picard stood for. As an moral man himself, Picard was haunted by the likelihood that he would have executed the identical issues as Shinzon did if had he skilled the identical previous as him.
Although Picard was extra affected by Shinzon than the Remans he led, the truth that Shinzon was affiliated with them makes their look that rather more significant. As of now, the comics have not tried to join the Remans with Nemesis past what some followers might have already made themselves. Hopefully the subsequent or subsequent problems with Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer will accomplish that in some capability. Will seeing the Remans once more remind Picard of Shinzon, or will the Remans one way or the other acknowledge Picard? Regardless, figuring out the TV present’s observe report, it will not be a coincidence that the comics are bringing a race that shares important historical past with Picard again into his Star Trek story.
