Re: Tin Man

The only problem with that is that Tam wasn't human and thus his colloquialisms that did survive (calling Riker "Billy Boy,*" for example) seemed a little ham-fisted. Still a good episode, though, one of the few TNG episodes worth re-watching.

*You could, no doubt, argue that he plucked the annoying sobriquet from Riker's mental store of "things I hate to be called" but that requires we go a long way to justify a throw-away gag.
Once every lifetime, we're swallowed by the whale.
