Re: TNG S2: The Measure of a Man

I just wanted to add that this episode provides the term toaster for artificial life. This apparently is where Battlestar Galactica reboot gets the concept for its artificial lifeforms.

Re: ENT S4: Divergence

Am I wrong for wanting to call the general's son Carlton?

Re: ENT S3: Chosen Realm

The writer seem to have put this episode together with the difficult choice made in the episode called damage. If you think about it, the choice that archer had to make in that damage episode mirrors the choice that the leader of the terrorist group made to kill a child in war. Think about how both episodes connect. One of the weaknesses of reviewing the television episode series episode by episode is that often times these types of connections are not made until Time and distance allow for proper reflection. Although this episode is somewhat mediocre and damage is somewhat well-made, both episodes act as a bookend of sorts. It is better to think of this series as a set than individual parts.

Re: TNG S6: Tapestry

Jammer, I see the story differently: Picard is so well-tuned as a result of his experiences, yet there are things about his own character that should be obvious to him--that the audience sees--that he is actually blind to. Of course, every character has a blind spot: this is so true as to be a trope. What makes this episode good tragedy--in that it features the death of a man and, with the man hypothetically rescued, the death of that man's career and resolve--is that Picard's blind spot is essentially a tragic flaw. My central criticism for this episode is that that tragic flaw revealed here did not appear in any significant form in another episode or feature.

Re: BSG S2: Flight of the Phoenix

Jamahl, I have to disagree about one point. It's possible that in revealing her condition to the entirety of the fleet, the President's gesture of revelation led to empathy from everyone. This general set-up more than explains why the flight crew would dedicate a plane to her.
