Star Trek Fans have arguably never had it better, at least in terms of the sheer numbers willing to boldly for their viewing pleasure. It’s hard to keep up with the various spin-offs and series that are on the air or in production, and right now the second season of Star Trek: Picard streaming worldwide.
Following the release of episode two – ‘Maintenance’ – last week, presenter Terry Matalas revealed a surprising trick quiz about the standard Starfleet logo over Twittera horrifying fact that will terrify the hearts of many Nintendo fans: Picard not only murdered Super Mario Yoshi’s trusty dinosaur steed, but also displayed his skull for all to see. Watch in a macabre gallery of his defeated enemies. Blimey!
Okay, some context. Season 2 of Picard sees the first captain transported to the dark alternate timeline with the help of his old friend Q, where he is no longer Admiral Picard, the famous galactic explorer. , speaker and connoisseur Earl Gray, but Shared Picard, the fearsome xenophobic, autocratic and destroyer of the entire race.
It’s Picard from the dark timeline, where skull trophies are hideously displayed in his castle, one of which is revealed to be a Saurian named ‘Y’shi’, as shown seen on the board in Matalas’s set photo:
As you can see, the person very clearly presents the inspiration for this poor soul in Picard’s skeleton collection. And even though the name doesn’t fit the position, we should remember that Yoshi has been nicknamed by many. T. Yoshisaur MunchakoopasFor example.
And if you’re wondering, Saurian is a reptile-like creature in the Star Trek universe, famous for its big eyes and strong booze.
