Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 4
Review : I really liked this episode. The stellar core fragment (real science note, one of those things going through a dust cloud may have sparked off the Terran solar system) was almost a sideshow, and it placed an interesting twist. There was a deliberate moral ambiguity in some places, and it really gave the viewer a chance to think. Whatever Picard said, I kept finding myself sympathising with the Governor. Yes, these people had a right to self-determination, but they had responsibilities too. How would Picard like it if some super-aliens had come along and given Riker, Geordi and Worf the chance to go off and become something else. Remember when he and the others helped persuade Riker not to take up Q's offer of superpowers. Boot on the other foot this time. That was the great thing about this one, there was no 'right' or 'wrong' side, and it left the audience free to make up their minds. Still, did the Enterprise being there save the colony or kill it? I wish we could go back and find out.
