  • Fire all weapons!

    The Crew arrive at Minos to find out what happened to the USS Dake, what they discover is that the people who lived on Minos are not on the planet anymore and all that is left is a holographic salesman showing the "demonstrations" of his weapons, which attack the Enterprise and her away team.

    This episode probably has the most action of any TNG episode, and it's damned well done! We get a semi-Bev & Jean-Luc moment, Geordi shows his commanding skills, the away team dodges phasers from an easter egg and of course the rare saucer-sep sequence, seeing the battle bridge back in action. Some might not like this episode because they would prefer "quiet" TNG episodes, but we should all just sit back and enjoy the fireworks, like I did with this episode. I recommend it.

    I give this episode 5 stars out of 5.
