From a nitpicking aspect, there were a few rough spots in this episode... but I liked the overall story of the episode quite a bit. Message-wise, it was a little similar to TNG's "Tapestry," the idea that you can't pull one thread without having more unravel... but it was a different enough hook on that message to make this episode really stand out from that one. I really liked Scott Grimes in this episode. I thought he did a tremendous acting job, and I liked that the show gave an opportunity to show a lot more sides to his character on the show. I also liked the interpersonal moment between Malloy and Grayson near the end. I didn't understand the way the other crew reacted to Malloy's simulations. They seemed to react a lot harsher than I think they really should have. I mean, I'd understand some mild concern for Malloy... but them talking about locking out the program? That went way far. Their reaction as they left the "party" on the holodeck seemed very weird as well... like it was the worst, most painful experience of their lives or something, and I don't get where that came from. The less said about the B-plot the better. Awful. They should have ditched that and tried to come up with something else... ANYTHING else.
