Star Trek Picard season three has just completed. It was not perfect but was probably the best live action Star Trek since Enterprise.
In honor of this, here is a quick analysis of the episode titles.
I’m not including Picard in the main analysis for consistency for now. There is also a small chance there may be more episodes (or possibly something else #StarTrekLegacy).
Picard does not challenge for overall shortest or longest title.
Like other series, it has several single word titles:
|The End is the Beginning||24 letters||1x03|
|The End is the Beginning||5 words||1x03|
|Fly me to the Moon||5 words||2x05|
Single word titles
The overall single word title stats are very similar to Enterprise.
|Percentage||44.68 %||44.83 %|
See comparison with other series'
|Percentage||6.33 %||13.64 %||29.76 %||24.71 %||48.13 %||44.68 %||44.83 %|
When split by season there is a lot variation though. I expect this to be true of most Star Trek series after Enterprise - the seasons are generally shorter and the serial nature means there are more likely to be patterns within seasons that don’t hold between them.
|Percentage||22.22 %||60.00 %||50.00 %|
