Things that go ‘Huh?’ in the night

Things happen on an all-new episode of Star Trek: Picard.

That seems to be the best synopsis for many episodes this season. Lots of things happen. I have no idea how they relate to one other or make a compelling or cohesive tapestry (weak laugh), but, yeah, sure — things happen. Some of those things are reasonable.
