Advertisements I've fallen so far behind on these. But watched two tonight while I cleaned the basement (thank God for Netflix for the Wii). This episode and the next had some pretty similar themes, while having very different resolutions. In this episode, it's more the terrorist against the crew, while the next episode is more the crew against the terrorists. I think I liked the overall "moral" of this story better, although the execution did leave a lot to be desired. The actor in the lead guest role (one of the things I hate about the alien names--I can never remember them) really felt like he belonged on a soap opera. His movement around the Enterprise was pretty silly, and there were an absolute ton of convenient plot holes for him to walk through. Escaping from a transporter beam, knowing how to reprogram systems on the ship, powering a transporter with a phaser...that last one left me totally bewildered. But the ultimate goal of the story was good, and it had a solid resolution (well, pretty solid, considering they were either going to kill each other or negotiate when Picard left). It presented an interesting moral quandary--if you could create a supersoldier that wound end all war, would you do it...knowing that they supersoldiers would have no purpose afterwards.
