Figured out what bugged me about it.
At first I wanted Picard to be like Logan (dude at the end of his time, needs to hero it out just once more). And then I wanted it to be like a new Prisoner* (because THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS). And then I realized that at no time did I feel a burning desire to see what they’re apparently offering (dude broken down, needs to be built up again so that they can break him again).
*It’s on Prime! Why the hell am I not watching an episode of it right now?
