Re: TNG S5: Disaster

I love how this episode had lots of problems, but the non-qualified solving each: Troi in command, Crusher pushing the control panel in the cargo bay because Geordi has collapsed, Picard with children, and, Worf delivering a baby. I was cracking up with every line he had. The tension between him and Keiko actually made you forget there was a bigger disaster going on. This will be one of my favorites, but unlike others, I think TNG is entertainment. Tension, humor, and fish-out-of-water stories are always theatrical, and usually entertaining. I don't really care how much techno-babble Troi can speak. She was true to character--she could feel every living being onboard. I don't think she could ever consciously decide to take their lives.

Re: TNG S2: Elementary, Dear Data

One thing I noticed throughout this episode is the use of pieces of Bruce Broughton's _Young Sherlock Holmes_ score. As a fan of both the movie and the score, this was a nice touch.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

I love this episode for all the reasons that Jammer gives: it's about honest choices, there's no cheaty ending, there's a lot of character shown, etc. Even with the glaring problem to me, it's an easy four stars.

The problem is that there was a solution that maximizes even more lives: with the replicators that exist both on the Defiant and the colony, some kind of warp-capable vessel must have been possible to construct. The obvious solution is to send Kira in that new ship through the barrier back to DS9 and get the treatment she needed from one of the other physicians on the station. Then, let the Defiant crew go back in time and start the colony... the timeline is mostly preserved, save for one Bajoran grave in an idyllic field of grass.

Of course, Future-Odo would probably object to that plan if only because he spent two centuries mourning his lost love, and rewriting history would allow he and Kira to be together the way he thought they'd always belonged. (Though he could have gone with her, too. Changelings obviously live a hell of a long time.)
