  • An epic 45 minutes.

    This episode packs a lot of stuff into 45 minutes. It's even more amazing once you rewatch it and realize that the relatively slow-paced (but interesting) set-up with Professor Galen takes up 1/3 of the entire episode!

    The question is of course among the most interesting ones that one can ask (aside from "when do they go to the bathroom?", of course) - "Why are so many alien races humanoid?" And I think the answer, within the context of the Star Trek universe, is a satisfying one.

    There's plenty of excitement here, especially once the Professor's ship is destroyed. It's an episode that COULD have been stretched out to a two-parter (one which would have been far superior to the snoozefest "Birthright"), but does perfectly fine as a stand-alone. And there's some nice interaction between Picard and his officers, particularly when Riker and Troi intimate that they think the Captain is going on a personal wild goose chase instead of obeying his duties. (And he probably is.)

    Among the best episodes of the 6th season.
