Benjamin Sisko deserves true recognition at Star Trek: Picard

In season 2 Star Trek: Picard Now the broadcast and final season production is over, and the final day of the most beloved Starfleet Captain is about to begin. What I’ve seen so far has been a wonderful combination of memorable trips with Riker and Seven. In the aftermath of the stories you’ve consumed over the last 35 years, you’ll get a glimpse of what the Earth and beyond will look like, but what’s next? Admiral Jean-Luc Picard has touched on much of the history of the Starfleet. There is one particular point in the timeline to help tell those stories around, but I want him to be respected above all else. Picard needs to pay homage to Ben Cisco in a much better way than he saw in this week’s episode.

When Commander Benjamin Sisko was introduced to the world as the main character of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, some seemingly significant risks were taken (at that time). Cisco was played by Avery Brooks like no other and made him the first black lead. Especially in science fiction, in the Star Trek series in an era when black leads rarely happened.

But more than that, Ben Cisco Hate Jean-Luc Picard viewers were treated in an angry conversation between these two great characters in the first episode, and in a few episodes Ben Cisco gave a divine alien Q in him. Rebuke Jean-Luc’s actions when hitting. Q’s response, “You hit me! Picard never hit me,” was followed by Cisco’s half-angry, half-excited “I’m not Picard!” Response ever since. I am. This new show, unlike other Star Trek shows I’ve seen before, split viewers in a fairly important way at the time.

Picard’s first season respects Jean-Luc’s life and two of the most important ongoing stories of his career, his best friend and all other overall life as our same sensory life. Permanent battles to do and Star Trek: The next-generation episode where the personality of the data was questioned is some of the most profound in the series, Star Trek: Voyager is Seven of Nine.

Jean-Luc’s heritage is defined by personal perception, regardless of race or origin. What we’ve seen on Picard so far enjoys the heritage and pays great respect to it. But before the end of this story, I really hope. The struggle between Deep Space Nine and her long-distance captain is recognized with greater respect than this latest episode.

Obviously spoilers.

Picard’s Season 2, Episode 2 darkens rapidly as Q takes the protagonist to a timeline where the Earth wasn’t part of the giant United Federation of Planets-instead, humanity is the most possible. He hijacked the galaxy in a brutal way. A stroll through this dark Picard trophy room reveals the skulls of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s infamous Garducat and General Martok. Later in the episode, Federal President Anika will be asked if she should consult General Cisco. Like this other timeline, Ben Cisco is supposed to be alive and attacking the Balkans (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the Mirror Universe, where Cisco was a kind of evil overlord. There was an episode of, but this has nothing to do with the world.) In any case, the characters of Ben Cisco and Deep Space Nine are far more valuable than this casual reference on a broken timeline.

The Borg conflict can be fierce at times, but the Dominion War needed to have a lasting impact on the Alpha Quadrant and the Starfleet throughout the Deep Space Nine. In many respects, Dominion was held up as a dark reflection of the Federation: if the Federation demanded on all planets and cultures to aim for a common survival goal for the collection of races, Dominion would be led by fear and power and of conquest. Existed only for. Its very existence would have challenged federal action. Especially after Dominion successfully invaded Space Fleet headquarters. The conflict should have permanently changed the Commonwealth and the Starfleet in the obvious way in this futuristic world seen in Picard, not the weird heterogeneous way outlined at the beginning of the first season. series.

But beyond the reference to the Dominion War, I think there is some sort of solution between Picard and Cisco. It doesn’t mean that you want to see Avery Brooks approach and talk to Sir Patrick Stewart. Cisco is gone. -And more than that, Avery Brooks seems happy to retire. Instead, I would like to see a monologue about how Picard considered that chapter of his life and couldn’t help Cisco. At Deep Space Nine, Cisco was regularly felt limited by Star Trek. When he died, someone high up like Picard would have access to his personal logs.

Looking at Picardy, who still felt like Ben Cisco owe it, it’s incredibly powerful for fans of the series and for establishing a lasting connection between these amazing characters. This can even manifest itself in a conversation with Ben Cisco’s son Jake. In particular, his podcast summarizes all Star Trek episodes, but about how hard actor Cirroc Lofton is working on Star Trek fandom.

Or maybe Jean-Luc swings in the Q the next time he meets him, and he says it’s advice from someone he respects much more than the god-like aliens in front of him. Should say to.
