  • Picard mistaken as a god.

    9.3
    Dad's view:
    - Fascinating story about a civilization's progression out of blind faith/theism and into an age of reason.
    - Surprisingly strong anti-religious perspective for such a mainstream show. Picard REALLY objected to the idea of playing a god.
    - Terrific story full of ideas, discussion starters. This is a great example of what science fiction is all about. Very meaty material!

    Kid's view: - When the Mintakans continued to make the incorrect deductions and kept on inventing more reasons for why Picard WAS a god . . . this was funny and drew me more into the story.
    - we got to see troi & riker as vulcans and in funny old-fashioned clothes.
    - i never pictured picard with a "the" before his name. it was funny. :)
    - i thought picard should have worn a greek god costume down to the planet (complete with robe and those leafy things on his head)
