This isn't a bad episode, but it's not a good episode either. Sadly, it's mostly a boring (and predictable) episode. (I guess there's a reason they pay these writer people. Without them, the actors can only give you so much!) It might have helped if there was a B story that somehow worked with the A story; perhaps something like having an Ambassador on board who tries to wrestle control of the ship away from Picard. (Okay, maybe not.) Earl Boen plays "Nagillum", because first choice Richard Mulligan wasn't available. ("Nagillum is "Mulligan" backwards.) Boen is okay, but nothing special.
