Review : OK, for some reason, I liked this episode. It always makes a nice change to see an episode that's not based around lots of things blowing up and has a bit of decent character development in it. Nella Daren was interesting because she was a character who could handle Picard. One moment, he goes into Stellar Cartography for an explanation, the next, she's in control of the situation. Lots of nice carryovers from "The Inner Light" as well, especially the flute and the music. I spent half the time trying to work out whether any of the actors were actually playing their instruments or not. I'm sure a real music buff could pick out a few holes in it, but it did not detract from the story, the whole thing is perfectly convincing. It didn't suffer the usual fate of episodes like this and begin to drag. Definitely worth watching.

Review : I really enjoyed this episode, because it is so different from the usual fare. The romance that develops between Picard and Darren is very very believable and both actors do a fantastic job giving a very natural performance. All the music was fantastic, and the references to the inner light allowed for some great character development for Picard. The end was a little bit sad, but inevitable. Its a pity the writers didn't follow this up in a later episode.
