Review : All in all, not bad, but not brilliant either. Holodeck episodes require a certain suspension of disbelief (recreating a 2,000ft+ ship in a holodeck barely 30ft accross must be a bit tricky) but I think we can allow them that. It's good that they revived a guest character as well. I never liked the original Moriarty (the Conan-Doyle version - created as a desperate attempt to kill off Sherlock Holmes) but this Moriarty gets to put his mind to use. Still, I have to wonder how he could possibly know what he claims to know, or have done what he claims to have done. Still, if we ignore that and let the story flow, then it was a good story. Barclay's little moment at the end was a really nice touch. "Computer, end programme."

Review : Though not the best in the series, I think that this episode speaks, as its predecessor "Elementary, Dear Data", as well as linked ideals such as "Measure of a Man" in our quest for the search of intelligent life, in that at least there are a few people in our world that can look outside the box, and hope that we aren't alone in this universe, whether it be via another source or our own creation. One of the things that, at least, philosophically hit me was that what if we are just a simulation of another creators behest, in the same means that we view the universe, multiverse, or in general, all of creation. As theoretical philosophic people state, maybe our universe is born of another, and maybe, just maybe, we create universes by what we do. Either way, the concepts behind this episode are great, as is the acting of the persons involved, as usual.
