In "Stardust City Rag" Picard and his motley crew journey to Freecloud, searching for Bruce Maddox (John Ales). The arrival and assistance of Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) at first offers a way to negotiate for the scientist’s release, but not all is as it appears to be as there are old scores to settle. The episode is written by Kirsten Beyer and directed by Jonathan Frakes.The new stills reveal a new character on Freecloud, Mr Vup (played by Dominic Burgess), a reptilian of some sort. They also show off the remarkable costumes of Cristóbal Rios and Jean-Luc Picard (Seven and Elnor are rather more tame):
There's also one lonely photo of Raffi aboard the La Sirena:
There is also a set of behind the scenes photos posted by StarTrek.com, showing more on set love from Jonathan Frakes and Patrick Stewart:
Also new, the latest in the character motion graphic delta things, this time featuring Raffi and a delta made out of the Vasquez Rocks:
