Easter Eggs You Missed In Star Trek: Picard Episode 5
Picard and his crew go undercover when they finally reach Freecloud in the fifth episode of Star Trek: Picard. From dire character fates to some surprising nods to the past, here are all the Easter eggs and references you missed in "Stardust City Rag."
The fifth episode of Star Trek: Picard opens with easily the grisliest scene in the series so far, as an ex-Borg Starfleet officer has his ocular implants removed. While the scene would be difficult to watch no matter who it was on that operating table, it becomes even more of a gut punch when Seven of Nine arrives to rescue him, and reveals that the poor guy being tortured is in fact Icheb, who was first introduced to audiences during Star Trek: Voyager's sixth season.
Icheb was one of several young Borg drones recovered by the Voyager crew in the episode "Collective," in which the ship comes across a Borg cube manned only by five Borg children who have been cut off from the Collective. Seven served as a surrogate parent to Icheb and the other ex-Borg children, and nurtured Icheb as he demonstrated an advanced aptitude for astrophysics, and voiced a desire to eventually enter Starfleet Academy.
However, although an adult Icheb made an appearance in the Voyager episode "Shattered," which takes place in an alternate 2394, we now know that in the prime Star Trek timeline, Icheb tragically didn't make it past 2386, although he did at some point achieve his dream of becoming a Starfleet officer.
When we finally meet Dr. Bruce Maddox in the fifth episode of Star Trek: Picard, he's not looking too great. Fearing for his life, the cyberneticist is hiding out on Freecloud, seeking aid from a crime lord named Bjayzl . At first, Bjayzl orders Maddox killed, but then thinks twice about it and decides to try to find out who he's running from, thinking she might profit from trading him to his pursuers. In her attempt to butter the traumatized doctor up, Bjayzl offers him a drink of "tranya," a bright yellow beverage that she keeps in a crystal decanter.
