  • Snoozer

    This sequel of sorts to first season's "Datalore" is one of the lows of season five and a rare "Data" episode that's a snoozer. Spiner faces an uphill battle dealing an unfocused script and guest star Ellen Greer as Data's "mother" (she's awful)."Silicon Avatar" might be Star Trek's worst tale of the many they've done that have been inspired by Moby Dick. The best part of the episode might be Troi's admission, "I don't think you need an empath to sense that woman's feelings."
