'Star Trek: Picard' Season 3 Episode 7 Recap: A Changeling of Command

The Titan sees a change in command as the truth about Jack Crusher comes into focus.


The seventh episode of Star Trek: Picard’s third and final season opens with an unexpected appearance from a familiar character: Tuvok (Tim Russ). When “Dominion” begins, it appears that some time has passed since William Riker (Jonathan Frakes) was taken into custody by the Changeling-infested Starfleet, and Seven (Jeri Ryan) and the rest of the Titan’s crew have mounted their own operation to locate him. Which is precisely why the two former Voyager officers have reunited.

While the rest of the crew closely monitors the situation, by looking for any signs that the Tuvok they’re speaking to is actually a Changeling, Seven presses him for answers. Does he know where Riker is? Has he heard from Janeway recently? When both of these answers arrive as rather dismissive negatives, Seven decides to switch up her tactics by referencing the games of Kal-toh they used to play aboard the Voyager. Tuvok’s answer doesn’t seem suspicious at first, but something about it causes Seven to set another trap for the Changeling to walk into. Once he takes the bait to arrange a rendezvous location, Seven suggests a planet that no Vulcan would ever agree to meet on. Paired with Tuvok’s sudden lapse of memory when it comes to the assistance he once offered to help Seven stabilize her neural patterns, it becomes blatantly obvious that they’re dealing with another Changeling.

Sooooooo...  The Changelings stole Picard's remains because his Irumodic Syndrome wasn't actually Irumodic Syndrome, and instead is something they now want to "extract?"

Vadic ends up taking the Titan, and the ending cliffhanger has her on the verge of revealing what Jack really is. Cant' wait to hear that. Now they're showing him having telepathic body control of others. WTF?

Still... Great episode! 

Here's the ScreenCrush Easter Egg video for this one:

So Vadic is insane.  Tortured into madness.

It's hard not to think that, every once in a while, Starfleet deserves some of the grief it gets.

Every time the writers decide to have Starfleet do stuff like that I feel like we've lost something.

I understand.  The Federation was supposed to be a utopia - acceptance of all, no greed, everyone's rights protected.  Genocide should have been unthinkable in such a society.

I'm a couple of days behind. It's been a busy week so I hope to watch this week's episode tonight.
