  • An unoriginal but ok filler episode

    This is sort of a mashup of first season's "Home Soil" and second season's "The Measure of a Man" (which is referenced). This time, however, it doesn't rely on a guest star serve as the stubborn adversary it pits Picard versus Data on opposite sides of the issue (or dilemma) with lives on the line. Unfortunately, this leaves the guest star (Ellen Bry) with very little turf of her own as Doctor Farallon, a character who basically echoes whatever the popular belief happens to be at any one time. But the real emphasis here is on Data. And Brent Spiner (along with Gates McFadden) is fabulous, allowing the story to slowly build up before the nice payoff.
