.... I am somewhat puzzled over the lukewarm reputation of "Legacy" here on TV.com. The Enterprise is joined by Tasha Yar's sister Ishara as they attempt to rescue their crew members in a Civil War battle zone in this action-packed and entertaining episode.
Although the character of Ishara was not as interesting as the writers/producers undoubtedly thought she would be, "Legacy" is no TNG dud. The episode is very well filmed with fine pacing, energetic camera work and a lot of action. The thematic elements surrounding the relationship between Ishara and Data are the most satisfying of the episode, as Data deals with loss, friendship, betrayal and duty in his unique way. These entertaining elements make "Legacy" a very watchable and re-watchable episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in my opinion.
