Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 2
Review : An episode that started off slowly, but got interesting later on. It took some time (possibly too long) to establish Ira Graves as a character, maybe more of a caricature. Transferring himself into Data's body is straight out of "What Are Little Girls Made Of?", which makes me wonder if he got hold of Dr Korby's research somehow. Brent Spiner was OK as Graves, but I think he went too far to make it convincing. But maybe that was the writing. Graves made virtually no effort to fit in as Data, he just carried on being who he had been before, an arrogant old man who saw himself as God's gift to the galaxy. The resolution actually worked, making Graves face up to the reality of where this might end up, although downloading himself into the computer might cause problems. His knowledge is now free to distribute throughout the Federation, which might have interesting results. Finally, 'touch-and-go-downwarping', surely that was an unnecessary bit of hyperbole. I also really wish we had seen the Constantinople - I don't think we have ever seen a Federation passenger liner - but we can't have everything. The verdict: flawed, but watchable.
