I think what I liked most of all is that it was a return to the prime timeline...that is something I've wanted since the movie Nemesis (which I found a bit lacking).
I thought the "new' Star Trek movies, actually made this less likely to ever happen, I remember thinking "Oh...so...they've erased the existing universe?"
Which sucked.

This Picard show though...It's like a show set in the Star Trek universe...but it doesn't feel Star Trek, at all.

I also quite enjoyed that they did keep the prime universe "side of the story" intact...and absolutely I can see why NERO would have been pissed off...

SPOILERS




...that interview was loaded...and just went in an unexpected way.

Out of all people to ever basically say "fuck the Federation", I never thought it would be him...evidently he'd stayed buttoned down about it for some time.
He wanted to help, and did help...the Federation withdrew on political grounds.
Weak.

It's put the character in a very unusual place, because Romulans hold him in pretty high regard, and the existing Federation wouldn't like him quite so much, because people do look to him as something of a legend/symbol.

The reveal about who Dhaj (er, and who the other one WILL be) was interesting...and kind of great, with what it means in a roundabout way.

I'd love to know how the remaining Romulans got on board a borg cube for their "reclamation zone", hopefully that's at least in part a story we'll get to see.

Interesting show...and honestly I was loving it from less than a minute in...
They have, at least thus far...done the character and the universe right.
