    Boring Geordi story.

    By pharoahsdance, Jun 17, 2011

    You've got a potentially interesting concept here - a character who is in denial about the loss of a key family member. Unfortunately, Geordi was precisely the wrong character for this concept, which is botched badly by the writers and producers to boot.



    Here's the deal - I am not sure Levar Burton, at least at this point in his career, was capable of generating the kind of angst this story merits. And for that matter, why should we care about Geordi's parents? They'd played only a tiny role in the character's development over the previous 6 seasons. All of a sudden we're supposed to care?



    Of course, it gets worse because there isn't much exploration of what is clearly a tragic event in a character's life. (And which, to my recollection, is never mentioned it again. I guess in the 24th century people get over loved ones in 7 days or less.) Instead, we're stuck with another cliched "energy life form takes human shape".



    A real snoozer, the kind that was unfortunately typical of the 7th season.moreless

    Geordi is experimenting with some technology that enables him to remotely control a probe. Geordi does this by using his Visor sensory outputs. The probe resembles the robot called Nomad from the original series.

    Geordi is experimenting with some technology that enables him to remotely control a probe. Geordi does this by using his Visor sensory outputs. The probe resembles the robot called Nomad from the original series. During this episode Geordi faces the disappearance of his mother Silva LaForge. Picard breaks the news to Geordi, and Riker volunteers to take over the Raman mission to allow him time to grieve. But Geordi refuses to give up hope that the Hera will be located. Geordi locates the “Raman” and finds all the crew dead. Geordi defies Picard’s orders when he starts seeing his mother.moreless
