YATI : Do Troi and Riker really have to do evaluations on the entire crew? I mean, they know each of the several hundred officers on the ship well enough to judge them? Surely it would be more sensible for each officer's direct superior to evaluate them? This is how it's done where I work, and I'm told it's what happens in the present day military.

Ben sure is an incredible bluffer. In the junior officer's poker game he has a king, jack, ten and eight. Lavelle has two sixes and two sevens. It is impossible for Ben to win, no matter what his hole card is. Yet Lavelle folds in the face of Ben's self confidence.

Great Moment : Worf teaching Sito to stand up for her self.
Body Count : One, Sito, at the hands of the Cardassians.

Plotline

A look at life among the junior officers of the Enterprise-D.

Analysis

Great characters and acting and a very moving ending make this another high point.
