I actually really like that episode
I think Braga gets a bad wrap, he wrote over 100 episodes between TNG and Voyager, many of them quite good. But people only give him a hard time for one or two that weren't that great
Braga's at his best when he's doing alternate reality or something to that effect. His best days were in TNG easily. Voyager and Enterprise(especially)... no. I think by that time he was just cranking out as many as he could with less regard to quality. But like they say in poker... you can hardly recall the winning streaks but remember every big loss. Braga's like that and he's really hit and miss. But it's definitely more than "one or two."
I think he had some great work on Voyager too.
to name a few
Year of Hell
The Killing Game
I'd contest a couple of those. Unimatrix Zero for example. But he also had a lot of clunkers on Voyager too...
As I said, he's rather hit and miss. Mostly I think he gets most of his bad rap from his work on Enterprise, which you didn't even mention so perhaps you're conceding that one.
