Picard episode titles, blurbs, stills, cast photos and biogs, and more!

A round up of the latest Picard new and images today, starting with new details of the next few episodes. Continue below for that and much more:

CBS have now released titles for the first five episodes, and blurbs for the next two. These are a bit spoilery, so you want to skim past the quoted sections if you're avoiding spoilers:

Episode 2: Maps and Legends
Picard begins investigating the mystery of Dahj as well as what her very existence means to the Federation. Without Starfleet’s support, Picard is left leaning on others for help, including Dr. Agnes Jurati and an estranged former colleague, Raffi Musiker. Meanwhile, hidden enemies are also interested in where Picard’s search for the truth about Dahj will lead.
Episode 3: The End is the Beginning
Completely unaware of her special nature, Soji continues her work and captures the attention of the Borg cube research project’s executive director. After rehashing past events with a reluctant Raffi, Picard seeks others willing to join his search for Bruce Maddox, including pilot and former Starfleet officer CristĂłbal Rios (Santiago Cabrera).
Episode 4: Absolute Candor

Episode 5: Stardust City Rag

A press kit for the series has been released as well, which includes lots of new images, and with them character bios. Several of those reveal new character details, which again might be a bit spoilery:













A few of these are new images, here they are without the text overlay:











And still there's more! The Picard website also has a new cast listing, with biographies of the actors rather than the characters, but with them, new in costume portraits. RockLove's listing for the Omega necklace from the series included a couple of images from this series too, with slightly wider cropping:











This extra image of Soji is also from RockLove:


CBS have been continuing their stylised delta character promo videos too. Here are the latest few:







For some behind the scenes discussion on the series, Deadline has become the host of a new official Picard podcast, which will be released weekly alongside the series. For the first episode no less than Patrick Stewart joins the discussion, along with executive producer Akiva Goldsman, showrunner Michael Chabon, and head-of-everything-Trek Alex Kurtzman.

And finally, several clips from the first episode have now been released online (geolocked again):









Picard is available now on CBS All Access in the US, Bell Media services in Canada, and Amazon Prime Video in most of the rest of the world.
