Re: DS9 S3: Life Support

I hated the subplot where Jake and his dad decide that it's okay to ignore that Ferengis degrade their women and treat them like slaves...as if it's okay to overlook human(oid) rights in the name of cultural acceptance.
It just demonstrates how unevolved we are as a society. Imagine that instead of treating women like this, the Ferengi treated another race like this. Would it be acceptable for Jake to overlook Nog keeping slaves? Of course not, nor would it be laughed off as the comic relief part of this episode of Deep Space Nine.

Re: TNG S7: Thine Own Self

I enjoyed this episode very much. It works on many levels. Great story-telling and suspense. Great character development. Beautiful performance by Brent Spiner as an amnesiatic Data trying trying to convince people he only wants to help them and not harm them.

And the woman who plays the teacher/healer/scientist...awesome character. My favorite moment is when she says: "I'm sure my grandmother would have called [Data] a demon or spirit or some sort of monster" Then her modern, scientific-thinking leads her to conclude, "You are an Ice Man." Priceless. It's a wonderfully funny moment, yet it doesn't make her look ridiculous. She's is simply making sense of things using whatever frames of reference she has.
