Re: TNG S5: The Perfect Mate

I have a completely different take on this episode than the rest of you. I think this episode is about being able to resist temptation. I also don't think that Kamala was ever anything more than what Picard wanted her to be. Picard wanted her to be a free, independent, intelligent woman. That's exactly how she was portraying herself to be toward Picard. Her ability is to sense what a man wants and be exactly that. I don't think she was ever who we saw, but merely a projection of Picard's ideal woman.

Re: TNG S5: Violations

I'm writing regarding comments made by both Jammer and William B. Both question the credibility of Jev returning to Troi's quarters for a second rape. Their argument is that he had gotten away with it, so why should he take the risk of being caught with a second attempt. This is actually a very accurate description of a sociopath. In their mind, they believe they had previously gotten away with it, so getting away with it again won't be a problem.

I have a relative that was ordered by a judge to stay away from the ex partner after a restraining order violation. Less than 3 hours after the judge had ordered my relative to stay away or face severe consequences, that relative was back harassing their ex partner. Why did my relative do this after they had gotten away with the first violation? Because, in that persons mind, the judge, had said it was okay because their was no punishment for the initial violation. That relative is now facing up to 5 years in state prison because of this violation when all they had to do was heed the judges order and stay away. I know this example is anecdotal, but I believe this behavior is typical of sociopaths. Yes, I know I'm calling my relative a sociopath, but that's because I believe this person is.

I think it is credible that Jev tried a second rape. The fact that he had gotten away with it previously reinforced his belief that he could continue to do it with out consequences.

As for the other complaints about this episode. I agree. I actually found this episode to be quite boring and actually fell asleep on 3 different occasions trying to watch it.
