This episode was a piece of shit. It was a mess, Troi and Riker as unfond of both of them as I am looked like idiots in it. Riker playing history lesson vids to make an important decision which he should have made years ago. Troi once again reduced to echoing people's words back at them as therapy, as if the fans hadn't been mocking that lazy writing for years by then. I could go on, the Trip and T'Pol stuff was a slap in the face and contextless.. but we've had countless threads about how godawful this least liked episode was.
