You've also got to love how this episode takes a potential plot of Riker being killed by this disease/virus (BLEH!) thing and treat it as a mere inconvenience at the end. For an episode that relives Riker's past memories, you would think that being on that reliving those moments on while the brink of death and surviving at all would have a major impact on his character. Like maybe he should treat his relationship with Troi more seriously, or that he should stop being such an a**hole to others. Something!
