Easter Eggs You Missed In Star Trek: Picard Episode 8
On episode eight of Star Trek: Picard, titled "Broken Pieces," we finally learn the dark truth behind the synthetic attack on Mars 14 years before the start of the series, and the crew of the La Sirena makes some surprising discoveries. Here are all the Easter eggs and references you may have missed in "Broken Pieces."
We finally get confirmation in "Broken Pieces" that Commodore Oh is what many have long suspected -- a half-Romulan, half-Vulcan spy for the Zhat Vash, who orchestrated the attack on Mars.
This isn't the first time Romulan spies who are half-Vulcan have played a significant role on Star Trek. In The Next Generation season 4 episode "Data's Day," Data is assigned to serve as an escort for a "Vulcan" ambassador named T'Pel who later is revealed to be a Romulan spy. Given that "Broken Pieces" reveals that the Zhat Vash's mission to prevent the evolution of synthetics goes back hundreds of years, it's safe to assume that the Zhat Vash was wary of Data from the moment he was created. Perhaps T'Pel wasn't just a Romulan spy, but was actually an earlier generation of Zhat Vash, gathering information on Starfleet's only sentient synthetic.
After finding out in episode 7 of Star Trek: Picard that Agnes Jurati had ingested a Romulan tracking device, we learned in "Broken Pieces" that it was made of viridium. Despite never having appeared in its shiny blue pill form before, viridium trackers have actually been used in Star Trek since Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. In that film, Spock places a viridium patch on the uniform of Captain Kirk before Kirk beams over to a Klingon ship. Later, Spock uses the viridium patch to rescue Kirk and McCoy from where they're being held captive.
Star Trek: Picard has been doling out a new Rios-based hologram on the La Sirena every couple episodes, but by "Broken Pieces," it seems as though we've finally met them all. In total, there are five, each with a different accent: an Emergency Medical Hologram, an Emergency Navigational Hologram, an Emergency Tactical Hologram, an Emergency Hospitality Hologram, and one last emergency hologram, whom we meet in episode 8. Keep watching the video to see all the Easter eggs you missed in Star Trek: Picard episode 8!
