Thursday is almost here which means only one thing for 'Star Trek: Picard' fans. Episode 7 'Nepenthe' of Season 1 will drop on CBS All Access and viewers are eager to know what happens next.

The previous episode was an intense and emotional one, as Narek makes Soji (Isa Briones) realize that she isn't human and is, in fact, an android. Just before things get dark and bleak for her, Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and Hugh manage to rescue her. They're not too safe though, as the Tal Shiar is hot on their trail.

The synopsis for 'Nepenthe' reads: "Picard and Soji transport to the planet Nepenthe, home to some old and trusted friends. As the rest of the La Sirena crew attempt to join them, Picard helps Soji make sense of her recently unlocked memories. Meanwhile, Hugh and Elnor are left on the Borg cube and must face an angered Narissa."

Fans of 'The Next Generation' would be delighted to know that we will finally see Will Riker and Deanna Troi. From what we've seen in the trailer and images, Picard is in good terms with them.

We'll get to know what's been happening with the Rikers all these years, and more about Picard's close synthetic friend, Data (Brent Spiner). Data died at the end of 'Nemesis' after sacrificing himself to save Picard. 

We're seven episodes into the show, and a lot has been happening. After isolating himself from the Starfleet for almost two decades, Picard is compelled to return to intergalactic action after meeting Data's "daughter" Dahj, who is killed promptly.

He goes on a mission to find Soji and track down Bruce Maddox, on a newly acquired ship with a new team that includes Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd). Things are just getting started!

'Star Trek: Picard' airs on Thursdays on CBS All Access at 12.01 am.
