Completing The 2020 PopCult Gift Guide for today, we have a DVD/Blu Ray release of Star Trek: Picard – Season One. This is the perfect gift for the Star Trek fan on your list who still values physical copies of their favorite programs.
Star Trek: Picard features Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation. The new series will follow this iconic character into the next chapter of his life.
Starring Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, Santiago Cabrera as Cristobal Rios, Alison Pill as Dr. Agnes Jurati, Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker, Isa Briones as Soji, Jonathan Frakes as Will Riker, Harry Treadaway as Narek, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, Evan Evagora as Elnor, and Brent Spiner as Data, this new streaming series perfectly captured the spirit of ST:TNG, while moving it into a new and mature direction.
I know that having hard copies of your favorite television shows may seem a bit passe in these streaming times, but a lot of folks enjoy the keepsake nature of having something under the tree. Plus it’s getting increasingly difficult to subscribe to ever single streaming service out there.
A local note: Charleston’s own Ann Magnuson appears in a couple of episodes on this set.
The DVD will run you $28, while the Blu Ray is $35. You can find this disc at Amazon, or anywhere that DVDs are still sold.
