  • Character building in a completely surreal environment

    Firstly, let me point out the best scene in perhaps the first season - Tasha Yar seduces Data! After youve stopped laughing, youll laugh some more at Bret's unrefined acting of Data in that situation. Something that wouldnt have happened later on. I can cut him some slack as its only the 3rd episode, but I cant imagine the scene being played like that in future seasons.

    A very big error imo which would have destroyed the deus machina of the plot (the virus) would have been to have established containment protocols active on the returning crew! Centuries of human medicine goes out the window as the returning crew are let loose among the ship to infect everyone else. Surely a competant crew would have considered the possiblity of contamination after seeing the effects of something inexpicable on the other ship?!

    Anyways, if you can put that aside, the goings on make up for that and deliver a very watchable episode.
