Picard’s curiosity in archaeology goes again to the early days of “Star Trek: The Subsequent Technology.” Picard was additionally keen on old style issues, usually studying Shakespeare from paper books and regaling his crew with tales of constructing three-masted crusing ships in bottles as a boy (a ardour solely shared by transporter chief Miles O’Brien). Within the episode “Captain’s Vacation” (April 2, 1990), Picard (Patrick Stewart) redoubles on his ardour for archaeology due to the looks of the dashing maverick Vash (Jennifer Hetrick), a Tomb Raider who enlists the captain to assist her on her quest to discover a Tox Uthat.

To Picard’s utter amazement, it’s full, with each miniature stone inside in tact. It is uncommon that viewers acquired to see Picard so gloriously lose his cool, however he definitely lets his dignity drop and his enthusiasm fly brazenly when offered with the Kurlan naiskos. As the children stated on the web within the early 2000s, he squees.
As many Trekkies will hasten so as to add, Picard discovered the highest half of the now-broken Kurlan naiskos on the torn wreckage of the Enterprise-D after it crashed throughout “Star Trek: Generations.” Though hundreds of years outdated, Picard roughly places it down in favor of a guide he finds beneath some rubble. On the very least, he did appear to have stored it; in an episode of the second season of “Star Trek: Picard” (which takes place after the occasions of “Decrease Decks”), the naiskos is again at his château.
