Ah, villain ADR Guy, how great you were.

Good moments in this episode for me, mostly dealing with Picard's dealing(s) with the Sheliak. I also like calling this planet's inhabitants the "Brushed Aluminum People" as they seem fond of that material. The robot-looking statues in the house of the colonist looks like one of the attack drones from the Star Wars Prequels. And I liked Data's ultimate demonstration to get the colonists to realize how in over their heads they were but, really, you'd think they'd already know about orbital bombardment and how they can be wiped out with very little effort or confrontation from a powerful warp-capable race.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
