    Picard can't keep the girls away. Poor guy.

    This "Romancing the Stone" episode features the lighter side of Picard, allowing Patrick Stewart to show off his comedic talents. It also introduces Vash (Jennifer Hetrick), one of the more interesting females in Star Trek history. Unfortunately, the settings fall short of what a Star Trek movie could have done with this script; in particular, the lack of location shooting is evident. But with Max Grodénchik (who would go on to play Rom in Deep Space Nine) as the Ferengi foil and a fastpaced, offbeat script, "Captain's Holiday" is still a crowd pleaser.moreless

    Picard is the target on this episode. The whole "Enterprise" crew are hinting for Picard to take a vacation. He finally gets the idea and beams down to risa. He meets a attractive woman named Vash. She is searching for a item called the Uthat.

    Picard is the target on this episode. The whole "Enterprise" crew are hinting for Picard to take a vacation. He finally gets the idea and beams down to risa. He meets a attractive woman named Vash. She is searching for a item called the Uthat. A ferengi named Sovak is also interested in making a profit and is searching for the same item. Meanwhile some 27th century Vorgons are wanting the same item which belongs to the future. I wonder is Vash and Picard going to get married in the future? I rate this one a 7.7.moreless

    A very fun episode in the Indiana Jones mold, and a nice break from typical TNG.

    This is a very enjoyable episode, particularly because it is so different from most other TNG episodes. Captain Picard goes on vacation for some much needed R&R, but excitement follows him there!



    This episode works to a large degree because of the chemistry between Patrick Stewart and Jennifer Hetrick. It's a nice, combustible pairing between two independent, strong-willed characters. The story is a good one as well, with several competing parties looking for a long-lost artifact. A nice echo of the Indiana Jones movies.



    Finally, while humor cropped up frequently in TNG, this is one of the best light-hearted episodes in the season's run. I guess my assessment of this episode is higher than other fans', perhaps because it is so different.moreless
