As soon as everyone stopped complaining about the threads in Now Playing, you had to start up the fire again, huh?
Looks like our TNG honeymoon is over--that means we disagreed on all three episodes this week.I didn't remember this episode, at all, going into this episode. And I think it was for good reason... I was bored silly watching this episode and the following one. I thought that this episode absolutely dragged. I felt like I had watched a 3 hour epic by the time I was done with this one.
It was really convenient, wasn't it. Not even Data knew how terraforming works? I actually thought the science lesson was pretty poor--it was there more to setup the fact that Starfleet had classified the planet as lifeless ("Not even the possibility of life forming") for the reveal later in the episode.I liked the enthusiastic female researcher, and I liked the science lesson she delivered on how terraforming works. (However, I find the convenient way that none of the away team had any previous experience with terraforming an awfully convenient way of delivering that science lesson to the audience.)
