  • Pastiche, much?

    I recognize the fear in early ST:TNG that old fans would not buy this new Star Trek, especially with the new crew and the lack of Shatner or Nimoy, but this tribute episode happened way too early. It would be like Picard walking on the bridge for the first time and sitting on a tribble. The crisis was unrealistic, too. Wouldn't most of Kirk's adventures be required reading? Wouldn't Data be able to recall the information faster? Wouldn't Beverly have studied this in school? Apparently the Enterprise has the research capabilities of a guy with World Book '94.
