Star Trek: Picard Is a Response To Brexit and Trump

If you were wondering if Star Trek: Picard was going to be any different than Star Trek: Discovery, the answer is no. Prepare yourselves for another sermon about liberalism.


“In a way, the world of โ€˜Next Generationโ€™ had been too perfect and too protected,โ€ he says. โ€œIt was the Enterprise. It was a safe world of respect and communication and care and, sometimes, fun.โ€ In โ€œPicard,โ€ the Federation โ€” a union of planets bonded by shared democratic values โ€” has taken an isolationist turn. The new show, Stewart says, โ€œwas me responding to the world of Brexit and Trump and feeling, โ€˜Why hasnโ€™t the Federation changed? Why hasnโ€™t Starfleet changed?โ€™ Maybe theyโ€™re not as reliable and trustworthy as we all thought.โ€
