Re: TNG S5: The Perfect Mate

"Curious isn't exactly how I'd describe it."

Made me chuckle.

You never see Picard leave, and he doesn't answer the ambassador's question.

And Famke bonded with him.

Fun episode, Famke acts it well.

Re: DS9 S4: Indiscretion

Regarding the ease with which Kira and Ducat infiltrate and take the mine, granted it might be a bit far-fetched, but not as far-fetched as it may seem at first glance. Remember that Kira is a ruthless expert at guerilla warfare and covert operations and Ducat is a career military officer and hardened veteran. We're not talking about a couple of admins from the Starfleet steno pool here. These two are highly trained and experienced warriors, particularly within the confines of the Trek universe. In addition, the mine is located on a desolate wasteland of a planet that is only just barely habitable, is thought to be unknown and is manned by people who are believed to be dead. The Breen are not expecting anyone to be coming around. Their security is, therefore, reasonably oriented around keeping prisoners in and under control, not around keeping anyone out or defending the perimeter. They've been there for years and the drudgery of mindless routine has undoubtedly set in. They are not expecting anyone to be infiltrating them any more on this day than the thousand others that preceded it. In addition, it is reasonable to assume that the Breen are not wasting their best warriors being guards at this tiny mine, watching thirty some-odd prisoners on this back of beyond pissant planet. There's probably only a dozen or so of them as well.

When you think of it that way, maybe it's not so far-fetched that Kira and Ducat, with the element of surprise on their side, could cut through them like a hot knife through butter. Certainly enough that the willing suspension of disbelief can be reasonably applied.
