Jack's Review
Let me start off by saying this episode really only had two things that made me shake my head. Well, three. One: we had to wait ten episodes to see Starfleet ships?!? Two: And when we do they may as well be cardboard cutouts. They just sit in space in identical pointlessness. Riker's speech to Oh was worth the price of admission, however. Three: we sat through ten episodes to end up with what is essentially Star Trek Nemesis 2? Okay, here's how they should have done this whole mess. First off, if you are going to amass that many starships we need a battle. Start off with Starfleet and the Romulans trading punches - then, instead of giant mechanical space tentacles have synthetics in ships pour out of the big space rift and force Starfleet and the Romulans to team up in the face of adversity. Instead of Picard having the brain illness from "All Good Things" he would just try to fly the ship into the rift to destroy it. Then instead of turning Data off in that matrix box thing you load him into the golem body so Brent Spiner could play Data as an actual human - finally achieving his dream. Picard would repay his sacrifice from Nemesis by giving him a chance to experience a whole new life. As you can tell from my rantings, I really disliked this series. It was almost insulting. I have high hopes for season two...but the only way from here is up.
