Re: TNG S1: Home Soil

I would rate this episode a 2 at best. I agree they try to make a somewhat scientific analysis of the phenomenon but the story lacks dramatic tension and terror-interest.The feeble threat of the magic, glowing crystals leaves Romulan bad guys or even Ferenghi to be desired. At least those enemies have a culture and don't talk like some infantile mix of Tonto/Tarzan:(paraphrasing) "Me noble savage. You bad guy. Hurt feelings. Make sad." This level of communication from members of a supposedly morally and intellectually superior "culture"? Then comes the highly anticipated (from 40 minutes back)abject apology from Captain P. C. Picard and, as you note, this to a species that seems as confused and arrogant as the humanoids they condemn. As a humanist, I say dig 'em up and make 'em into jewelry.
