    Picard summons his inner Indiana Jones... with talking

    By Celedorian, Oct 26, 2012

    The conclusion to TNG's final two parter is weaker than the first, with a slow start and plenty of padding to cover a lack of story. But it does have an offbeat adventure you won't see every week and includes a couple of fun action sequences.



    It's worst offense is the climax, which is similar to Raiders of the Lost Ark... if Harrison Ford was bald and talked is way through the end on a small, cheap set. (A two pater calls for a bigger finish than this.) Yet the closing scene is among TNG's cutest.moreless

    An exciting conclusion to TNG's last two-parter.

    By pharoahsdance, Jun 18, 2011

    "Gambit" was among the highlights of TNG's mediocre final season. It's a convoluted, exciting adventure that doesn't really challenge the viewer but provides plenty of entertainment - much like an Indiana Jones movie.



    We have the Vulcan triple agent, Data in command and dressing down Worf for insubordination, James Worthy as a Klingon, a "health and safety inspection", Riker getting thrown in the brig by Data - they really threw the kitchen sink in there, didn't they? And yet the conclusion is perfectly satisfying - a dangerous talisman disabled by the good guy's wits. A worthy addition to the TNG canon.moreless

    When Data lowers the shields to the “Enterprise” the ship becomes under attack. The “Enterprise” fires back. The “Enterprise” crew is shocked to see Commander Riker aboard along with Picard on the renegade ship. Data orders the “Enterprise” crew to let the renegade ship go. Lt. Worf challenges Data’s authority and is quickly confronted in the Captain’s ready room. It seems the renegade ship is on mission to find romulan-vulcan artifacts. During this episode Riker fires upon his fellow crew members with a phaser. Data reminds him he has violated Federation Protocol and will be dealt with.moreless
