"Treasure of the Mind" is a pretty good episode. The issues featured are intriguing. The negotiation scenes are done well with believable tension and energy. I give credit to the producers for creating something that felt like it could actually take place were such a historic treasure be discovered.
I was surprised that Captain Bridger got to be so assertive with his decision that the treasure stay together. He's getting more comfortable with the balance between scientist and captain it would seem. He clearly knew the value of keeping the treasure together, and wasn't afraid to use his power as captain to ensure the final decision.
