||Not exactly brilliant! It had the odd moment, but hardly did well. Firstly, it was far too Wesley-centred, although here he was somewhat more believable. He's a young man learning about life and love rather than a genius, so they gave him limits and flaws, but I'd been put off the character a long time ago (due to him being a complete pain in the backside). There's also the somewhat ridiculous Nanny Anya, who went WAY too far and kept going. Pre-emptive killing of a helpless patient in sickbay just because a fellow passenger might become infected is just ridiculous, especially since it was a cheap excuse to show off her shape-shifting abilities. There's also rather an odd YATI, where they first claim that a terawatt source is 'more power than the entire ship can generate', then proceed to beam Salia down. A bit self-contradictory, I think (especially since the ship is supposed to be a lot more powerful). However, Jame Hubbard went some way towards redeeming the episode. She was very convincing as Salia, a young woman torn in various directions, who saw a whole new set of possibilities opening up before her, yet eventually decided to do her duty. An excellent performance. I also have to mention Guinan and Riker's little scene in Ten Forward, very nicely done. Verdict: not a total disaster, but fairly rotten.
