Re: TNG S4: Legacy

Ehhh it was okay. Still better than the kid episode two episodes ago.

I really didn't like how trusting they were of Ishara, and how they took her implant out but sent her back. I would have sent her to the Alliance to pay for her deception.

Re: TNG S4: Remember Me

I don't remember seeing this episode before, so this was my first time viewing it. I was blown away. McFadden did a great job (thought admittedly I am a Beverly fan), especially when it was just her and the computer. And after the dreck that was the last episode, this was a nice change of pace.

Re: TNG S4: Suddenly Human

This was a drag to get through. I think it's worse than most S1 and S2 episodes.

Just terrible.

Re: TNG S3: The Most Toys

@Peter G the massive problem with your analysis is it continues to ignore Fajo's thought process and power. Fajo has already made it clear he will not listen to Data's demands, because Fajo does not believe there is a threat (that Data will actual shoot). Sure, a "normal" person would do things to avoid being shot, because they don't want to be shot and believe very much that they will. Fajo is mad, and he believes there is no chance Data will shoot him. AND he knows that Data can't touch him, due to the shield. In fact, Fajo could run at Data and knock him over with the shield.

So what are Data's options? Fajo won't follow any demands Data has. He simply won't. So Data can either shoot Fajo, or put down the disruptor and submit. There is no third option. If Data puts down the disruptor, either he resists and gets people killed (not a good solution) or he doesn't resist and accepts slavery (not a good solution either). Killing Fajo prevents any more deaths and any more injustice.

Data truly only had one option, logically. "I cannot allow this to continue." That means both for him and others.

Re: TNG S3: The High Ground

This wasn't the greatest episode, but was a bit engrossing. The terrorism angle was handled well - no preaching but not afraid to discuss both sides.

BUT the one thing nobody mentioned is that Picard was ready to initiate saucer separation when the terrorists came on board! He didn't execute it but interesting the writers didn't actual forget about that possibility.

Re: TNG S3: The Defector

Sorry I think it was actually two episodes later (The High Ground) that it gets mentioned.

Re: TNG S3: The Defector

Funny enough the very next episode Picard prepares for a saucer separation! They don't execute it but interesting that they do mention it.

I really enjoyed this episode. What a tension on what to do by the crew. What great actors on the Romulan side. And sorry, but Tomalak was an amazing Romulan. Sure we only saw him a little but, but Katulas' performance made him larger than life. Would have been great if they could have brought him back in a bigger role.

I thought Season 1 was okay, and Season 2 was good, but Season 3 really blew it out of the water.

Re: TNG S3: The Survivors

I have to agree with Jammer, this is a 4 star episode. I lot of others have covered the great points, but I’ll just share mine:

- the acting is superb - especially John Anderson. His confession at the end was mind blowing and heart breaking and shocking all at the same time. And how Gates McFadden plays Beverly’s reaction - just amazing.
- the writing & script are on point. It was a slow burn, with only a little clues dropped through out. While there was some action (and the simultaneous phaser and torpedo fire was awesome) it was mostly just talking. But it was so engrossing.

Reading some of the comments here make me sad that people think that immortal & all-powerful = infallible. They are not. While Kevin has immense power, he lacks both will, perfect vision, and perfect decision making. I am sure he did what he thought was best at the time, but he couldn’t predict the future and how life forms would react. And he obviously has emotions, which can override logic. We all know people who are good people but do bad things when they are angry. I think his plot line makes perfect sense.

In the end, one of my top 3 episodes.

Re: VOY S6: Alice

Yet another time there’s an unauthorized shuttle launch that they can’t stop or are too late to prevent.

That should be #2 on their list of things that need fixing or additional precautions/procedures for (after the holodeck and its myriad of problems)

Re: TNG S2: Samaritan Snare

Definitely a weird episode. To follow up on the other Matt’s comment: why did they have to use all the technobabble for a heard replacement? It’s like they wanted to be futuristic but there is no need for that. Just makes those scenes painful.

And the way they Paklids surrender seems weird. A better ending is having Geordi overwealm their power, taking down the shields, and just being beamed off.
