  • Data meets his mom

    9.5
    This episode captures Star Trek TNG Writing at its best. No huge space battles or an attack by the Borg. This poignant story delves deeply into family members who become estranged & by some freak chance (or fate) they are able to reconcile. The acting all around was tremendous in this episode. Data meets the wife / partner of Dr. Soong (data's creator) with whom she helped build Data & Lore. Data learns that Juliana wanted Data deactivated because he might turn out evil like his brother Lore. She regrets her decision & realizes the wonderful person he is & i'm sure she equally felt guilty like a mother who has abondoned her child. What happens at the end of this episode regarding Data's mother is Trek writing at it's absolute best. This episode is probably my favorite of any of the Trek Series!
