With a new episode hitting this week, here are the preview images for Paramount+’s Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Episode 5 “Imposter.”
Last week, we passed along an early preview for Paramount+’s Sir Patrick Stewart-starring Star Trek: Picard S03E05 “Imposter” (directed by Dan Liu and written by Cindy Appel) focusing on Raffi (Michelle Hurd) and Worf (Michael Dorn). But now, we have an interesting set of preview images to go along with that clip. As the episode overview alludes to, the gang finds themselves on the wrong side of Starfleet as Jean-Luc “struggles to uncover whether a prodigal crewman from his past has returned as an ally or an enemy hellbent on destroying them all.” Chills… right? And on a side note, utilizing the Changeling was an especially nice touch in an already impressive season. Here’s a look at what’s still to come:

In addition, Todd Stashwick (Captain Shaw) joins Wheaton to discuss his lifetime of “Star Trek” fandom and his return to the franchise to play the U.S.S. Titan’s commanding officer, Liam Shaw. Also, viewers get a look at the history of the Changelings, learn the science facts behind the science fiction in this week’s episode, and more:
