    How much of the Metamorph power is becoming what you want, and how much of it is becoming what you need?

    Everyone
    has been molded into who they are by their encounters with other people. I’ve been molded into me!present by my wife. She’s been molded into her current persona by me. That’s inevitable over 20 years of togetherness. Neither one of us is the same person we were when we met.

    Maybe the palatability of the Metamorph depends on what one actually thinks one would want in a “perfect mate,” and what we imagine that would be like is more a projection of our own desires than an objective opinion.

    I mean, my ‘perfect mate’ would be calling me out on my crap all the time, opinionated, strong-willed, independent, arguing with me tenaciously when she believed she was right, and going out and doing her own thing with my participation being solely at her discretion. How is that bad?

    Imagine how different the episode could have been if Picard's secret wish was a dominatrix in leather with a whip...

    Well that's completly silly. That chick, Ardra, that claimed to be the devil tried that look on him and it totally turned him off.
    Picard likes a more subdued woman............;)

    I'd pick Kamala I'm sure! The producers must have liked her look too and the brown spots enough to change the physicality of the Trill from their appearance in TNGs The Host so that they resembled Famke Jannsen rather than the under evolved features as seen in that episode! Ardra beats both Minuet and Kamala though I must admit!

    They did try the former Trill look on Terry Farrel though but thought it'd be too unappealing. I am not sure but I think I even saw a picture of it.

    Yeah I think I heard about that too but she wouldn't have wanted to don that appliance every single day like other actors had to I'm sure! Odd though why they picked Kamala's look and instead went with a normal human woman!

    Every time I read a post like this the first thing that comes to mind is Counselor Troi.

    I can't explain why but I find Jadzia Dax sexier in the MU than she is in the PU. Is it just me or do other people feel the same way?

    I thought the girl that replaced her was way cuter. I'm not into girls but she was so cute.

    This.

    Plus I don't find either particularly attractive...

    Plus Famke Janssen is way better in devilish roles than she is in submissive ones.

    The fact that she morphs into your perfect mate makes it a paradox. If your perfect mate is someone independent with a strong personality, then that's what she would become.

    If you really wanted, she could even become Kamala:

    I always found it so interesting in The Perfect Mate there's a throw away line how on Krios, male metamorphs are very common, so it's a world where it's typical for men to become a perfect mate for his wife.

    But is Krios from The Perfect Mate the same Krios from The Minds Eye? Do they all become Klingon slaves?

    I'd say Kamala, but I'm attracted to tortured souls, so I can't see it being a good deal for her.:(

    I liked how Famke Janssen appeared with Patrick Stewart in TNG and later in the X-Men trilogy! When you first see him as Professor X and her as Jean Gray you just know they've known each other for years don't you! :p
