When he said it, I cheered!
Is Hugh on the cube the same one from TNG?
I think so.
Indeed he is. Same actor too, Jonathan Del Arco.
So one of the Dahj twins got super combat skills, and the other got super knowledge skiils?
They need to learn to muzzle the Romulan's, their green spit is certainly an issue.
The story seems to be creeping along very slowly to me.
Rios and his Emergency Medical Hologram made me laugh.
She didn't display her super combat skills until she "activated" whatever that means.
And in this episode, the Romulans expressed concern that if they pressed Sis too much, the same would happen with her.
I just did the math. My closed captioning is 8 seconds behind. I pay $5.99/month for one defective show??
I had that issue last week but it worked better on this ep for me.
I liked this episode but I wanted them to get on with it already.
I'm enjoying it.
It’s growing on me. Not a fan of the Kylo Ren/Spock/Romulan story arch. I have a hard time feeling any empathy for Romulans. I guess I’m a terrible person.
So let me get this straight, in 2399 Vasquez Rocks is no longer a park and people can just live there?
And if money no longer exists in the 24th Century, why does Picard have to pay Rios?
Still, things are moving along, if a little slowly and we're finally out to space.
Nice to see Hugh again.
That scene with the interrogation at Picard's and the other story on the cube going on simultaneously was some good tv. I really liked this episode.
"Money" exists. Latinum for example. It has to for trade with other cultures. Rios has to maintain his ship somehow. Buy dilithium, etc. The Federation just doesn't hand starship fuel out.
With replicators and cheap energy, they don't have to.
(Or so I've told.)
At least in the Federation.
(Yeah, look I don't buy it either. But that's what's been said on screen.)
Money is just a representation of "stuff". Replicators change the whole equation of scarcity of goods around - there is little need to collect "stuff" when it's easily available.
Think of it at a basic level - let's say you want a car. You could replicate an econobox, or a Porsche (or anything else, really). In the present, the Porsche costs more because it's made at a factory that makes very few of them, whereas the econobox was made to be cheap and efficient and mass produced. But if you can replicate said Porsche as easily as the econobox, then the economics changes greatly.
"Rare" stuff suddenly becomes a whole lot less rare. Supply and demand charts go crazy when supply is on demand.
Mass and energy are related - Einstein's equation tell us that. So now you have a magical box that can produce what you want on demand. And recycle it when it's no longer needed. So in the future, your "work" is less about manufacturing, and more about creating. Greed takes new forms - it's hard o have exclusives when everyone else can have it too. And face it, that includes money. If your box can make anything, having it reproduce paper money makes it worthless.
Anyhow, is it me or does hearing Picard called "JL" just seem... weird? It's no shorter syllable wise but doesn't seem to flow off as nicely as Jean-Luc.
My husband was actually annoyed by it after the first few uses.
I ordered this on kindle and it releases Tuesday. Should give some background on Raffi and other people and events leading up to the series.

So much this. My brain quivered. And great cinematography at that moment, with Picard's finger coming down center screen and almost seeming 3D in effect.
Wait, wait, I'm going to have to go back--when/where was Hugh?! I missed it. He was a favorite of mine.
So much this. I hope they hear negative feedback and excise it from future episodes. Jean-Luc Picard simply is not a "JL".
