Star Trek: Picard dropped a huge shocker when it revealed what had been stolen from Daystrom Station.
The last thing we fans expected to see was the corpse of Admiral Jean-Luc Picard as the stolen weapon in the previous episode of Star Trek: Picard, and we’re still not sure what the plans are for it. Most of us think it has something to do with the Borg parts still left inside the body because we also think the Borg are controlling Captain Vadic. Yes, we could be wrong, but that’s just what we’re going with right now.
But another admiral’s remains might be entombed at the station. Movieweb pointed out a huge easter egg that many of us may have missed when the camera panned around inside the station. An x-ray image on the wall of someone’s torso revealed the name of Admiral James T. Kirk, although, as kindly pointed out by one of our readers, Kirk was a captain at the time of his death. (So that’s something that needs explaining!) So even though we don’t see his face or anything resembling his face, why would we see Kirk’s name if his body isn’t there?
Star Trek: Picard has opened up a very weird door for late Starfleet officers.
If this is the case, and we just saw the resting place of Admiral Kirk (Captain), that takes me to the question of why. Why would Kirk be there? He doesn’t have any Borg parts, but he was one of the best captains in Starfleet. Perhaps Daystrom scientists are considering cloning Starfleet officers instead of promoting them. Yeah, that’s an out-there supposition, but seriously, what was Admiral Kirk’s body doing at the station?
Maybe it’s just me, but that seems incredibly weird to know there are pods holding deceased officers. Who else could be there? And, if not Picard, will any Star Trek series tell us why Daystrom has created its own graveyard for the best of Starfleet?
