  • She is Data's boss now?? What is the galaxy coming to?

    In this Episode Data looses his memory among a pre-warp civilization, and Counselor Troi........ goes for the rank of Commander. The idea of Dianna Troi being in a command position is full of holes as it is, but the fact that she is now Data's superior officer is absurd. Data is the ships 2nd officer. Dianna Troi is a therapist. I guess they'll let anyone command a starship these days. That's right, Harry Kim spent 7 years as an Ensign, but a therapist has command authority on the Enterprise. The episode's integrity was saved by Data's storyline. It's cool to see him try and figure out who he is whilst among primitives. FIRE, WATER, ROCK, & SKY are the 4 "elements" that are in everything and everyone. Hey, I said primitives. Don't watch the episode to see "Commander" Troi pilot the Enterprise to its doom, watch it to see Data cure radiation poisoning when he doesn't even remember what radiation is.
