Re: Haven...???

I don't know, and it might be saying about my appreciation of that aspect of the episode that I haven't been too curious about it. I guess we can hope that he found a cure, because the alternative is just too awful to contemplate: that his whole "destiny" was just to fail. I could see that happening in a Philip K. Dick novel, but not in televised Trek.

Now, figuring out how much Mr. Homn could drink before passing out, that's a question that keeps me up at night.

Re: Haven...???

It's just one of those events where it is left to the viewer's imagination. Best answer is: Who knows? But personally speaking I'd like to think a cure was found.

Re: Haven...???

Wyatt didn't find a cure, but fell in love with the woman of his visions. They had children, all immune to the plague. Thus, the race was saved.

Why not?

No, but he did find a cure to their other terrible affliction: '80s hair.

Wasn't there a novel written about this? I could be mistaken...

Re: Haven...???

Never really one of my favorites. I didn't care for the later-liberated Lxwana insisting on an arranged marriage; Wyatt's folks were supposedly the ones who demanded it, and yet Wyatt's Mom obviously could not stand Lxwana in the slightest--and what damn right Earth (or Earth colony) parents have to hold their son to such an arrangement is beyond me. The whole R/T conflict reminded me of the then-recent Nightwing/Starfire breakup in Titans, under similar circumstances. Also, the ep introduces the insistent 'we have it good so kill for us to maintain it' kind of species (Haven's people) that we saw all too often in the 24th Century shows.

But one thing worth mentioning : When it was rerun (sometime in 94), I had a TV with direct headphone inputs. For my roommates' sakes, I put them on--a pair of Denon HP's with an incredible range. When everyone walked into the reception, and there's a hundred conversations going on at once--I could hear clearly what some of the other conversations were. Kudos to the producers for putting in actual chit-chat in the background.

Re: Haven...???

Once the Wormhole was discovered, they went to the Gamma Quadrant in search of an unpopulated planet on which to live out the rest of their lives in peace.

Unfortunately for them, the Jem'Hadar got ahold of them first and killed them. That's how the Dominion first learned of the Federation.

Why not?

Well Spock is very logical most of the time...then there is pon farr...an ancient ritual too. We've seen some advanced cultures that also have old societal or biologically based customs.

Re: Haven...???

Very fair point. But to Spock, this was a thing well-known and understood--a when, not an if. Lxwana's insistence seemed casual and 'Oh I Just Remembered!'. The arranged marriage part--at least for the Betazoids involved---is perfectly comprehensible, if a bit OOC IMO for later Lxwana. To me, it was a bunch of other things that didn't quite meet up that drove an allowable cultural difference into the annoyance zone.

For dumping a chic Greek like Marina for a diseased Daryl Hannah wannabe, Wyatt deserved death.

Re: Haven...???

Is it me, or would later-seasons Picard find the psychic connection between Wyatt and the young woman to be "damned suspicious, and more than a bit convenient for the Tarellians"? In later eps, I think even the 'I've seen her all my life' part might be called into question, as memories can be manipulated. In S1, it is this serene destined thing. I can't help but feel that later seasons and shows would have thrown a little cold water on these notions. Whether that's a good thing is hard to say.

Chalk that up to Season 1's lightweight concepts, like Amazon planet, African planet, hardbodied nympho planet, invisible child stealing planet...
