Chosen One of the Day: Jean-Luc's undercover disguise on Star Trek: Picard

Since the launch of Star Trek: Picard on CBS All Access, we have been blessed with SO MUCH GOOD TREK CONTENT. Really, there's something for everyone here, whether you're a diehard TNG fan, more of a holdout for Voyager, or just love Really Good Doggos.

(My favorite piece of trivia is that the dog who plays Number One, Picard's best four-legged pal, named Dinero, is new to the world of acting and therefore had to have some of his scenes cut because he wasn't hitting his marks. LOOK. HE WAS JUST DOING HIS BEST.)

But it was last week's episode, "Stardust City Rag," that allowed Jean-Luc Picard and his motley crew to go undercover on the planet Freecloud in search of Dr. Bruce Maddox (alongside surprise partner Seven of Nine), and Imma need to wax poetic about this whole disguise for a minute.

Warning: Spoilers within for the most recent episode of Star Trek: Picard.

I appreciate so much that Picard's idea of playing a dastardly villain no doubt comes from all the times he read and re-read The Three Musketeers growing up, because when he's given the opportunity to disguise himself for their mission, all he does is throw on a beret and an eyepatch while affecting an over-the-top French accent.

The results are glorious. But sadly for Picard, and maybe for the rest of us, the jig is up pretty quickly and of course, pistols are inevitably drawn, but for the time that we had Bad Boy Beret Picard, we loved him so. If only he'd had a mustache to twirl along with it.
