  • A good old sci-fi murder mystery

    7.5

    This Riker episode, courtesy of the holodeck, borrows an age-old gag from television sitcoms: the trial where we get to see everyone's differing "viewpoints" (the sitcoms having borrowed the idea from the classic Japanese film, Rashomon). The result is a bit predictable (and sometimes outright funny), but as far as filler, bottle shows go, this one is rather nice – with a decent structure, nice acting, and good pacing. Interestingly, the plot of this episode would have fit like a glove into any of the live action Star Trek episodes (although I guess that's why the plot device is so archetypal.)
