||After the last episode (The Game), it's good to see TNG back on track with Unification. Everything seems to hang together well, the acting is good, and the writing makes sense for once. The subplot with Riker going off to investigate parts being stolen from a scrapyard seems to be mostly time-filling, but I am sure that it will be important in the second part. There were some nice touches. Sarek forgetting what he had said a minute ago in the middle of a conversation really rang true, especially when he remembered things from the previous century so clearly. Calling the Vulcan ship the T'pau is a nice bit of continuity (she was of course named after the character in Amok Time, who will crop up again in Enterprise series 4). Then the moment when Spock walks in is great. My, he's hardly changed since The Undiscovered Country!
