Re: TNG S5: The Inner Light

It's hard for me to truly separate some very specific gripes I have with this episode from the rather poignant emotional story of it all. For one, I agree that it is a bit immersion breaking that they have the technology for a mind probe but not at least the most primitive form of a spaceship. Secondly, that they would consider a mind probe to be the most effective way of proving the existence of their civilization. It's a terrible thing, almost torture, to have someone live an entirely different life and strip that away from them. They couldn't just have some sort of artifact that contained information about the planet's history and people?

I find Junji Ito's exploration of the concept far more believable even if it might be less engaging. Especially since Ito explores the concept of year long 'dreams' as horror and not honored remembrance.
