    Let's hope it's more First Contact and less Thunderbirds.

    Both "6". A troll with dual accounts?

    WOW ...

    The "Five Queens" in Jean-Luc's dream does mean there are Five of Data's "Daughters" (androids).
    We've only seen two so far and apparently they have an "agenda" of some sort.

    Narek & 'Lt. Rizzo' confirm it in a very strange conversation, though they don't know how many yet.
    And she is extremely impatient to find out and not willing to wait more than a week.
    She is damn sexy as a Romulan BTW. :drool:

    Elnor is quite the swordsman.
    Also, His Cult Only Binds to Lost Causes.
    Juarti is just thrilled to hear about that. LoL
    BTW: The episode title, is the mantra of Elnor's group.

    The Classic Romulan BOP is a pirate ship and goes down in flames. :(

    Seven makes a spectacular entrance... as expected, at the end.
    Another cool looking ship, this time Seven's fighter.
    Though it looks a lot like the weird one-man fighters from BEYOND only shiny silver.
    :techman:


    Another slow starter, but it's going to get really bumpy from here on out.

    I give it a 7.

    It appears from next weeks preview that we are going to get to FREECLOUD.
    It seems to be a planet based Casino.

    And Maddox is the guy in this pic ...

    Made it through half the episode so far. I like it. But I'm too tired. Shit. I'll pick up the rest of it "tomorrow".

    Pretty fun episode. Good to see more of Romulan culture.

    The final few minutes was the best thing about this episode. The rest of it was pretty decent too, but Seven's Back!!!!

    I enjoyed this one. I liked how the flashbacks are filling in some of the history. Learning more about the Romulan culture outside of the military is great and very interesting so far.

    Loved the old school Romulan Bird-of-Prey (can't wait til Eaglemoss makes their model of it). Classic Star Trek battle with people shifting themselves to the side and shield percentage dropping. :lol:

    Seven's introduction was great. Definitely looking forward to seeing more of her.

    Next week's episode reminds me of all the times the TOS crew had to go undercover on some parallel Earth in disguise.

    Another alright episode. They did spoil the Seven appearance in the credits though. I wouldn’t have have done that.
    I did laugh with him using the comm badge like a mobile phone. They should have had him stretch his arm out to get better reception.

    Would they revisit 'The Royale' planet??

    That's what I thought too. At first I thought he's John de Lancie wearing a beard, but then I remember Q is immortal ;).

    It's a shame that they didn't bring back Brian Brophy as Maddox. I read somewhere that when questioned by a fan about the character being a part of Picard, Brophy said that this was the first he had heard about it.

    That planet looked like it had a air shield. I wonder if they’re like me and know the combination.

    Meh... I have a feeling these get slower and slower every week.
    The BoP fight and Seven's entrance aside, it was really boring.
    And they went back to Disco Warp, it seems -.-


    WTF is this?
