I liked it, too. I don't mind corny-- I like seeing something that's actually written maturely rather than just rated M for Mature. And Jinksie is actually saved for real; I was afraid his resurrection was going to be only temporary, with Claudia learning a lesson about messing with life and death. Cool.
But I wonder about that strange look on Mrs Frederic's face at the end. Could she be Brother Data in disguise? Or could she be the "evil?"
Also cool was that the artifact was a bit of shrapnel in the guy. Nice way to bring a new twist to the artifact hunt. "Purple heart," indeed.
