  • Good end to the two-parter, if you don't mind Mark Twain.

    This whole arc was really neat, but I have to say first off, that the character of Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens was really annoying. First of all, they've done this before, with the people unfrozen in "The Neutral Zone" (season 1 finale). But second of all, he just really follows everyone around annoying them until he finally fulfills the role of saving Picard. I sincerely doubt Mark Twain was going to shoot time travelers...

    But that said, it was great episode. It's neat to see the whole cast in this 1890s time period. Guinan and Picard have such a dynamic relationship and it is always fun to see them interact. This is the event that Guinan has referred to many times before, where Picard helped her (see "Preemptive Strike," where Guinan tells Ro Laren to trust Picard).

    The resolution to the alien plot is dull. They probably could've just blown up the thing from orbit earlier. Or maybe they weren't able to, I really don't understand.
