Something is wrong with Jack Crusher (Ed Speleers) in Season 3 of Star Trek: Picard. In the sixth episode of the final season of “Star Trek: Picard” comes the revelation: Jack has inherited an incurable disease, Irumodian Syndrome, from his father, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart).
This disease played an important role in the finale of “Starship Enterprise – The Next Century”. There we see that Picard will suffer from this disease in old age. As a result, however, it is still a dream of the future.
Then, in the first season of Star Trek: Picard, we see how Jean-Luc is affected. His mind is eventually loaded into an android body in the season one finale so that he can escape the disease. Jack’s illness sets in much earlier and more intensely. We explain them to you!
Star Trek: What is Irumodian Syndrome?
Irumodian Syndrome is a degenerative disease in the Star Trek universe. It is genetic, i.e. it is inherited. As far as the brain is concerned, it breaks down the synaptic pathways and induces hallucinations and senility. There is a drug that treats the symptoms but not the disease itself.
Since Irumodian syndrome is fatal, the drug accordingly does not help. Some sufferers can live with the disease for years before it develops and for a long time afterwards. In others, the disease progresses faster.
Whether there will be a cure for Jack Crusher remains to be seen. However, the fact that the changelings and Vadic (Amanda Plummer) are so interested in him might also suggest that his visions and hallucinations might not be symptoms of Irumodian Syndrome after all.
We’ll find out more in the coming weeks. Every Friday there is a new episode on Amazon Prime Video and Paramount+ in the stream. The latter streaming service is also useful this year with numerous other “Star Trek” new releases.
