CBS All Access' Star Trek: Picard is a return to order for many Star Trek fans. The series is successful in moving forward in the Star Trek universe while recalling storylines, characters, and plot points from previous episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, much to the delight of Trekkies everywhere. 

From references to Data's original daughter to glimpses of relics from previous episodes from over 30 years ago, Picard is a treasure trove of Easter eggs. Here is a rundown of a few of the eggs throughout Picard that reference previous series, episodes, and movies. 


  • Jean-Luc Picard visits Starfleet Museum’s Quantum Archive to get information on one of Commander Data's paintings. During the visit, the audience gets a glimpse of relics from previous Next Generation episodes, including the colorful banner that the children of the Enterprise made for their beloved captain ("The Pegasus").

    Number One

    Jean-Luc Picard called Riker his Number One for years when he was First Officer of the Enterprise. It seems that the former captain couldn't break the habit, and has named his loyal doggo the same.

    “Blue Skies”

    The song playing in the beginning of the first episode of Star Trek: Picard has a bit of a history in Star Trek lore. The Irving Berlin ballad was a favorite of the yellow-eyed android, as he sang it at the wedding for Deanna Troi and William T. Riker in Star Trek: Nemesis. He also "taught" it to his brother, B-4, who is caught humming the tune.

    "Tea. Earl Grey. Decaf."

    Back in his days as captain, Picard required his "Tea. Early Grey. Hot." to get a start on the day. But in Star Trek: Picard, an older Picard needs to watch his intake and decaf is probably the healthier choice. Hopefully, the replicator continues to serve it hot.
