    TNG continues to seek out strange, new stories and boldly go where no Trek has gone before with this abstract tale that begins as an archeological mystery and plays out like an ancient morality play. The script allows Spiner to play several characters, which he does well, and features them and Picard in a war of words. The concept of a ritual play seems out of place in the modern world of television, and the irony is that the many cultures who would have probably appreciated this story the most have long since died out. As such, "Masks" will never be mentioned as one of the best of this series, though it's certainly not an embarrassment. It's an enigma; the sort of episode some fans won't remember but others will never forget.
