Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 1
Review : A fairly rotten episode. Firstly, somebody died and left her son orphaned. Well, that's a tragedy, but an inevitable fact of going in harm's way. There's some discussion of this, and I agree with Picard that it's a seriously bad idea to put families aboard starships. However, that is not really important. They TRY to tackle the issue of dealing with grief. They dance around it, look at it, yet do not really take it on. Yes, we see some discussion, but no actual story. Unusually for Ron Moore, he was telling, not showing. As a result, this was a damp squib.
