Re: TNG S5: The Game

I liked this episode quite a bit.

* I hate "Wesley saves the day" scripts, but this wasn't one. Wesley didn't save the day. Wesley made it possible for DATA to save the day. An important difference.

* I thought the final chase sequence played Wesley's intelligence well. He was smart and resourceful enough to evade the Enteprise crew ... for a while. They caught him, but he made them work for it. It showcased his intelligence without making the ENT crew look like boobs.

* I can buy the idea that Wesley looked at the game, but others didn't. As another person remarked, Crusher and Riker -- two very trustworthy folks -- introduced the game to the rest of the crew. So they might take it with a grain of salt. And this wouldn't be the first game in the future that had a little bit of a pleasure effect ... maybe it didn't seem that unusual at first.

* I can buy Wesley deconstructing the game when other's didn't. He was on vacation, he had spare time, and he had no other duties. Besides, he's a nerd.
