Re: TNG S3: Hollow Pursuits

What I liked about this episode is that the the villain (or antagonist) becomes the hero. By "villain" I don't suggest that Barclay had any evil intentions, but merely that, in his initially presented role as a screw-up, his presence was detrimental to the crew's function. He somehow managed to accomplish tasks, but not without aggravating his co-workers and commanders. He clearly becomes the hero when the pressure of the dire situation forces him to overcome his shyness and propose the creative idea that leads to the solution.

One point about his holodeck programs: I would have thought that there would be restrictions on who could be created; the computer would be prohibited from making versions of real crew members, out of respect for those crew. It could possibly consider violation by proxy, and as such, would be disallowed.

Re: TNG S5: Cause and Effect

Thanks, Chrome, for a at least a plausible theory -- considering it's all made-up science. I've been puzzling over this since I first saw it over 20 years ago. Your explanation works better than anything I've been able to come up with in that time.

Re: TNG S5: Cause and Effect

This episode is also one of my favorites. I have one major problem with the premise: Given that the temporal causality loop was ultimately cause by the collision of the Enterprise and the Bozeman, wouldn't it then follow that there each ship would have been in the loop the same number of times? In other words, how is it that the Enterprise was caught for 17 days and the Bozeman for 90 years? And how did the two ships meet up in the first place?
