  • A nice conclusion, if not quite at the level of part 1.

    9.0
    The first 30 minutes or so of this episode continue at the extremely high quality of part 1. There are plenty of highlights to be mentioned, but I think perhaps the best is Riker's monologue in the ready room, followed by his conversation with Guinan. Very well-written.

    The episode flags a little near the end. The writers had some difficulty finding a convincing way to defeat an invincible foe (Michael Piller wrote part 1 not expecting to be around to worry about the conclusion), and while this conclusion is satisfying enough, it ends up being a little thin given the buildup.

    Finally, the ending with Picard staring out the window into space - trying to come to terms with what he's been through - ends the episode on a perfect not.
