Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

Interesting that Riker "washes Brenna's feet" early in the episode, i.e., he briefly shows her around the ship (offscreen) and then they hook up.

One scene later, though, and Brenna's back to being as cranky and argumentative as usual. I guess Riker wasn't very good at foot washing?

Then at the end of the episode, Brenna finds out that the Mariposan Prime Minister has money and power. If you watch closely, as Picard looks on smilingly, you'll see Brenna talking to the PM and she LITERALLY STARTS LOOKING DOWN AT HER FEET as the episode fades to black. I'm not sure if that editing was intentional, but they sure make it seem like Brenna's feet get washed on a frequent basis.

Riker might want to head over to Pulaski's office to get an STD hypo-spray, just in case.

Re: TNG S2: Pen Pals

With skin that orange, Sarjenka just might grow up to be a reality TV star and then President of the United States someday. ;-)

Re: TNG S2: Time Squared

Overall I like this episode, but a few things nag at me.

As other folks have pointed out, Present Picard flat-out murders Future Picard in cold blood without so much as a, "Sorry about this, fellow human, but it has to be done". Why not just stun him?

Also, it was weird that Troi totally disobeys a direct order from Picard when he orders Troi to stay in sickbay with Future Picard before leaving. Moments later Troi simply waltzes right out of sick bay after a short disagreement with Pulaski. Wait, what?

Then there's the energy vortex. The ship is cruising along at high warp and suddenly.... just suddenly stops dead when the vortex appears? Not even a tiny jolt to indicate that the ship has just gone from a gazillion miles per hour to 0 mph in an instant? It would have been nice if they had provided a line of technobabble to explain that.

The last thing that bugged me was not the fault of the show per se. The remastered version of TNG available on Netflix has amazing detail for a 30+ year old tv show, and on a large-screen TV it's quite obvious the producers used a stunt double actor for Patrick Stewart in some scenes (it was probably easier/cheaper than using extra VFX maybe?). A minor gripe to be sure, but it took me out of the moment while watching.

Re: TNG S1: The Neutral Zone

Did future TNG episodes ever elaborate on what caused all the Federation starbases to simply disappear? At one point there is a comment like "the station was ripped off the face of the planet", or some such. Did they ever explain what could do that?

Was it the Romulans all along, murdering vast numbers of Federation citizens? It seems doubtful, since the Romulans said they had some disappearances on their side of the Neutral Zone too.

Was this just a dangling thread that was left forever dangling? It's too early for the Borg to be the cause of it, so it must have been some other tremendously powerful entity.
