  • This is a decent episode, but I found the premise difficult to believe.

    In the episode, everyone plays a game that is addictive and exhibits some sort of mind control. Although the episode was interesting, I found the premise hard to believe. In my opinion, it simply did not fit with Picard's or Worf's character to be talked into playing a frivolous game. It also makes no sense that La Forge would be able to play the game, given the fact that it requires an optical interface. Character problems aside, the ending was full of action and very interested. For an episode with that annoying boy Wesley in it, it wasn't all that bad.
