You silly bastard. No one was in the Jacqueline Pearce league! Gorgeous and evil, just how I love my women.Denise Crosby as Sela was another weak point in the second episode, I thought. While I liked her as Tasha, I felt she wasn't in the Jaqueline Pearce league of playing arch villains.
You dare say that, when I have this irrefutable piece of evidence to prove you wrong?Scotty, I think, by far had the most well played appearance in the show. Poignant and a genuinely affectionate tribute to the character and the past show.
Oh, how I long for episodic television that can be watched as individual stories to return.
No, you're just one of a herd of nerds...Just rewatched Family and Firstborn. Firstborn is an episode that I think I have only watched once before, and it really is interesting. Not a top ten episode by any means, but seeing Worf coming to terms with the fact that Alexander doesn't want to be a warrior is really well done.Family I have seen numerous times, and it remains one of my favorite TNG episodes. And it was the perfect episode to follow up the two-part Best Of Both Worlds. We see just how much Picard was affected by his encounter with The Borg, and get to see him finally make amends with his brother. It also reminds me that, no matter how much I look forward to technology making life easier, the idea of synthohol just makes me cringe. It's like drinking non-alcoholic beer. What's the point? If I can't get to that point of running down the street naked, count me out.The twist that K'mtar is Alexander from the future come to change himself in order to save Worf later is kind of heartbreaking, even though his eventual decision to kill his younger self would be negated by the Grandfather Paradox (yes, I am that nerd!).
