I'm working my way through all of Star Trek (not for the first time) and just made it to Second Chances,
and once again it strikes me that the hostility between the two Rikers seems completely forced and inauthentic. In fact, except for Deanna, everyone's treatment of Thomas seems completely... off.
Maybe I'm over-thinking a mediocre episode, but would anybody really react that way upon meeting his double? Would you?
