Why does trauma lead Picard to a place of rage? Why does Zefram Cochrane feel like an imposter in his success?

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright talk about Jean-Luc Picard’s journey of healing from PTSD from his encounter with the Borg, and how it can apply to our own healing journeys. They also talk about how to face imposter syndrome, how Star Trek was Alan’s first fandom, and how First Contact is really an action-horror film (Jonathan gets super grossed out from some of the shots in this movie).
