  • Star Trek at its best- a touching, powerful and almost overwhelming episode.

    10
    This episode does everything right from the first line and the main plot is one of the best the writers of any Star Trek series have ever envisaged. Living a life in a heartbeat, to understand another existence and appreciate a different outlook on life are central themes. Watching Picard in a happy family is a rare pleasure too and deep down we relate to how this is what he has always yearned for. In a way, going back to the Star Trek universe is almost disappointing as Picard becomes something more. Patrick Stewart acts so superbly in this episode that I can only think of one finer example. Watch this whether a fan of the genre or not since it really isn't about space, science or technology but about lives, emotions and what it is to be alive.
