Review : An episode that looks like they ran out of ideas. Essentially, just a plain 'filler' where not very much happens, but we get a look at some of the characters' backgrounds. Now that might have been interesting, but totally failed. Essentially, it was soap opera stuff mostly. Everything about Riker and his father, Worf feeling down and all his friends trying to pull him round and so on, plus the remarkable co-incidence that Pulaski nearly married Riker's dad (out of a population of however-many-trillion, what's the odds on that?). No, not really interesting. There's an expression for Kyle Riker, and its initials are S.O.B., but Will began to act like one whenever he was around. Now that's believable (and seen in many families) but when it all suddenly sorts itself out in some silly game, it just isn't. As for Will starting to turn down commands, one gets the sense that he is precisely where he wants to be with precisely as much responsibility as he wants . . . for now. There were a few moments, O'Brien needling Wesley for a start, and Pulaski and Troi's little scene in the observation lounge perhaps, but that simply cannot make up for the rest of the story. Too soapish and generally dull.
