Being part of the military always gave me a purpose. I felt listless before I joined the military, not sure of the direction my life was headed. Suddenly after boot camp, I had an idea. I found out things about myself that I never knew needed to be unearthed. 27 years later, that imprint is in everything I do , even doing hospital corners on my bed sheets.
The greatest thing I took from my time, is to give to something bigger than myself. The mere act of selflessness is one that I had to mature in. All those who have served will tell you, that we don’t have fear, it is how we move forward despite. In the final issue of Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer #3, we find Picard and Seven of Nine as they fight to save a people and a planet where they may very well, lose their lives.
On Jenjor IV, Seven of Nine just found out about the ambush of Picard and the Jenjorans, and she must work out a plan to rescue them. Meanwhile, the Romulans start their attack on the Stargazer, which leads to a firefight between the two ships. Unfortunately, Reska and Picard are kidnapped by the Romulans, who decide to gambit Jean Luc for ransom, a chance which did not pay off, as Reska, takes control of the ship killing most of their crew. By the issue’s end, Picard leaves Jenjoran IV on a path to prosperity, while Seven of Nine gets an unexpected call from a familiar voice.
Overall, Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer #3 is a grand finale that will get fans primed for the final season of Picard. The story by the creators is exhilarating. The art by the creative team is striking. Altogether, a powerful ending to a an excellent bridge story.
