  • Crusher and Picard, sittin' in a tree...

    This episode is a pleasant surprise. The unfulfilled romance between Crusher and Picard has been mentioned so many times that by this point we practically ignore it. But here it's tackled head-on, and in a satisfying fashion.

    The "action" planetside is rather banal, but that's not a problem; it just offers a background for Crusher and Picard to discover each other better. Those scenes together are great, a reminder of what great chemistry those two characters had together (and that Gates McFadden was easily best female actress on TNG).

    Back on the Enterprise, there is a lightweight but entertaining subplot as Riker plays with two childish alien races. This is the kind of stuff that would be weak as a primary plot, but doesn't come off too bad in condensed form.

    Not a classic, but worth watching.
