Future Imperfect

I wish FI would have remained a Romulan episode and a two-parter. I hated the way it ended.

Re: Future Imperfect

I liked the ending and found Barash tragic and sympathetic. Another "intrigue" episode with fake scenarios to gain info is too reminiscent of a lot of other episodes.


the twist they went with made it more unique.

Re: Future Imperfect

I enjoyed it, it was good misdirection I thought, we watch it thinking "those sneaky Romulans, what are they up to now?" and it turns out it's the boy! Who doesn't even look like that, and was just feeling lonely! Well done I think!

Re: Future Imperfect

Barash looked like one of those Gray aliens we always hear about. I wonder if they intended to follow up on that.

Re: Future Imperfect

Good episode, but I will agree it did seem a little rushed. That's not necessarily a bad thing, I would prefer an episode with a too fast tempo instead of a slow one.

There's only so much you can stuff into a 50 min episode though, I thought it was well done. The music scores are pretty good in this episode, especially at the part where Riker says to the kid/alien "I don't wanna play anymore."

I also enjoyed this episode. Being mislead a couple of times made it interesting.

Re: Future Imperfect

I remember being a bit disappointed that it was not the Romulans behind it all in the end. I liked TNG's Romulans so nothing against anyone else's point of view.

It seems that had them a great Romulan episode but couldn't figure out what to do w/Rikar stuck on the Warbird, in one episode.

I don't know, I thought it was wrapped up well with a double twist ending.

Yeah, that was pretty good.

Riker: "Shut Up!"

A pause.

Picard: "I beg your pardon?"

Riker "I said shut up! As in close your mouth and stop talking!"

Yeah, that was pretty funny.

Also, the part where Riker figures out that his 'wife' was only a holographic program. That part, and watching Riker's facial expression turn from bright to dark in a nanosecond as the realization hit him - was pretty good acting, as well as a great music cue.

Re: Future Imperfect

I admit the bit with Minuet was good. That was when Riker knew something else was going on, and he didn't like it one little bit. Go, Number One!

Re: Future Imperfect

Fun episode, and brilliantly utilized for the 20/20 feature broadcast prior to the start of season four, when we were all up in arms about how Best of Both Worlds would turn out -- suddenly, Riker's a captain! Geordi can see! WTF!!!!

I also love the hook that Minuet was his wife and that this one little clue was what burst Barash's little bubble.
