Carolyn McCormick in 1010111101
 
Just finished watching the 1010110111 episode in the 1st season. Was very impressed with Carolyn McCormick's performance as the hologram...she of course would go on to be Dr. Olivet on Law and Order but I liked her more playful and more cunning side in this episode.

Read somewhere that she was given consideration for the Janeway role...is that true? Not sure if she would have topped Mulgrew but she definitely would have been equipped for the challenge and held her own. Would have been very interesting.

According to Memory Alpha and IMDB, it's true.

If you want to see her earliest film role (according to IMDB), look for her in 1985's Enemy Mine during the space station scenes.

The title of that episode comes from the names of the 4 Bynars... 11, 00, 10, 01
Surely their people have more choice over names than just 2 numbers?

Bynars sees or hears more variation from those two numbers than rest of us do :)

The lovely Ms McCormick was also a regular in later seasons of "Spenser: Fore Hire" based on Robert Parker's Spenser novels, as attorney Rita Fiore. Of course Avery Brooks also costarred in that show as Hawk, a role I don't think he's ever topped.

I can't decide if she's hotter as a blond or brunette, but she definitely smoked up the TV screen as Minuette.

Why do people find it so difficult to remember this episode title? As pointed out above - you only have to remember four numbers 11001001. Easy.

Or, even easier. Use Memory Alpha.

Because it's more fun to just type in random numbers. And plus I think people realize what episode we're talking about. :p

Sorry memorizing binary numbers just isn't high on my priority list.

But anyways to the episode... I just never saw the big deal about this one. The Minuet hologram... just never really held my attention and I find myself bored when I watch the episode most of the time.

Memorizing the episode's name is what sets hardcore fans apart from the normal fans. ;) (for the record, I have it memorized)

Personally, this is TNG's first great episode. Though how the heck were the Binars going to keep Picard on the ship had he not visited the holodeck? The Binars' plan would not have worked with Riker alone.

Define Irony: Touting levels of fan supremacy because you memorize a set of numbers... then misspelling Bynars twice.

The wink implies a joke. As for the other point, you got me.

I always jokingly change this episode's title in conversation by singing a verse of numbers from the old Rush song that went simply "One, zero, zero, one zero, zero one, zero zero, one."

And I think board moderator 1001001 deliberately set out to confuse us.

I might start calling it The Worst of One World if alpha-numeric's are now interchangable. ;)

:techman: I never thought about that one. Cool song.

The Bynars and any binary make me think of Bender and when he had a nightmare that he saw a "2"
