They’re mistreated by a more powerful being, and Picard’s response is to bark at him like an alpha dog? This is the guy Roddenberry wants in charge of first contact? I love this set. It reminds me of TOS. Oh no, it’s Mark of Gideon! What the fuck was she thinking? No, Denise, you are not crying. What you are doing is delivering one of the worst performances in franchise history. Granted, lines like this set you up to fail, but still... When one is in the 1960’s, this scene is permitted. He doesn’t know who or where the sniper is, so he jumps into the field of fire, points his phaser in a random direction, and shouts. A warrior’s reaction. What the fuck was he thinking? The “I cheered” snark is Chrissie’s, not mine. How come he can appreciate Wesley’s good looks with his VISOR but needs “normal” vision to appreciate Tasha’s? He demonstrates his power by giving his friend a sex slave? Is this the 24th century or the 4th?
