Picard's dog


The first poster for the new CBS All-Access series Star Trek: Picard has been released. It shows Jean-Luc Picard standing in his vineyard with a Staffordshire terrier at his side.

https://screenrant.com/star-trek-pic...canon-reveals/

According to reports, the dog's name is...wait for it...

Number One.

Really, what else would he call it?

Tonight on Star Trek: Picard, Jean-Luc's dog sorta meets Schrödinger's cat. Hilarity ensues. Or does it?

I'm trying to imagine what training the dog must have been like. "That's a good number 2, Number One ".

Well, since he couldn't get Riker neutered (despite widespread popular support), that just makes sense.

Worf would be good, too:

"Come along, Worf."

"Woof! Woof!"

What, no third iteration of the "Noonien Singh"/"Noonien Soong" name?

We could have had "Noonien Pooch". What a missed opportunity!

Q? I'd be gratifying to have an obedient Q - "Sit, Q! Good boy!"

Q, and he treats it like it's a superior intellect.

I could see Jean-Luc discussing cosmology and the wonders of the universe with his dog.

doctor with an abrasive personality.

"So."


And when he walks the dog and is impatient for it to poop already, he can say "Make it, So!"

So, I'm watching the episode Pen Pals. Picard and Deanna are having a conversation on the way to the holodeck. Picard states that he is not overly fond of small animals, preferring the company of horses instead. He states that a good horse is a companion rather than just a pet.

I was going to say "Number Two." Highly appropriate when doing walkies.

I like the mentioned idea of Q, but I'd be worried using the name would summon the bastard.
