Re: TNG S5: Silicon Avatar

I think it's easily a 3-star rating. Dr. Marr's character was fantastic acting. I've watched this so many times and I can't fault Picard for wanting to communicate with it. Perhaps I need to see Datalore again to find out how "intelligent" the CE is. Ultimately, based on the communication, Picard could get rid of it or not. No one was in imminent danger and he would have to assess if the CE could feed some other way. I read most of the comments, but no one seemed to mention Riker's face after Marr destroyed the CE. He was pretty happy. I was sorry that Marr felt she had to take revenge, ironically an Ahab before Picard's turn later in the movie. Her career is ended, but would she be imprisoned for her actions? Probably not since her son died from the entity. Still, the episode was very good. Some of you are pretty difficult to please.

Re: TNG S5: Ethics

In the thread, there don't seem to be a lot of opinions on Dr. Russell. Someone wrote that she was uncaring though and I disagree with that. She had her own methods. Maybe she wasn't as dedicated as Crusher, but like she told Crusher she doesn't like losing patients either. I really like the tension between she and Crusher and the dialogue at the end. They both have very good points, but I can't fault Russell too much.

Re: TNG S5: A Matter of Time

I actually enjoyed the episode. I think Williams would have done just as well, but Frewer is very capable. Yes, Rasmussen should have been watched. I can't argue that. However, this stuff about him getting stuff from Earth is not relevant. the essence of Rasmussen was laziness. He stole the guy's ship and probably killed him. He used the ship to create "inventions" rather than working on them himself. Why would he go to Earth when he could do a shop-all in one place? However, the guy had to be bright because he had to look up the info before going to the future and figure out how to deal with the people. Ultimately, his laziness was his undoing, but I thought it was a good episode and, like someone said, it was very satisfying to see him get his comeuppance at the end.

Re: TNG S7: Thine Own Self

I agree with Del_Duio. Definitely one of the best of S7. I've always liked this episode, but I'd have to admit there are valid points to Troi becoming a commander so easily. However, we have to remember that leaders may not necessarily be smarter than their followers, but should use all the information they have at hand to handle command well. In that vein, it may be plausible for Troi to become a commander.
