  • Next Gen's first alien possession story.

    4.9
    A bit of a mess in terms of plot but the idea of the loneliness at the heart of Picard implied by the script is interesting - so much so that he would abandon the ship to be with the alien entity (unless it’s not really Picard himself who makes that decision in which case it doesn’t reveal anything.) This for me was the most interesting aspect of this script but it took so long for the entity to body-hop into Picard that time to consider the character’s motives was not available. Deep character exploration is not on the agenda for this season.
