Soon after, Picard took the ship to confront the Romulans and stall them. Narissa tried to target La Sirena with the defense of Artifacts. However, Seven of Nine stopped her and ended up killing Narissa. Soong found out that Sutra and Narek worked together to convince the other synths to agree with her plan. So, he incapacitated her. Sooji failed to destroy the beacon and accidentally ended up activating it.
Further, Picard began to succumb to his illness quickly. But, Jurati prolonged his life long enough to distract the Romulans until the arrival of the Starfleet armada, led by Riker. Their arrival allowed Sooji to turn the beacon down herself. Soon after, the Romulans began to retreat. Picard died after Jaruti and Soong transferred his consciousness into a device holding Maddox’s copy of Data’s consciousness.
Meanwhile, Picard said goodbye to Data before waking up in a synthetic “Golem” body. Moreover, the Federation decided to lift the ban on synths. Picard and Soji set course in La Sirena with Jurati, Raffi, Rios, Elnoe, and Seven of Nine in Star Trek Picard Season 1 Finale.
