    Not only are there incestuous vibes, it's going all BDSM now. And she is most definitely the dominant one. :vulcan:

    I get the feeling that she is the older one and probably abused her younger brother in ways most folks would shudder at.
    He didn't look so thrilled either.

    He was talking about "eating crow" if any of his predictions do not pan out.
    The pic was just to show that he actually DOES eat crow.
    (I believe he said he shot them with his .22)
    There was nothing untoward that was meant by it.

    Were just dealing with someone who lives a very different kind of lifestyle than most of us.

    I am trying to wrap my mind around your thought processes. It's proving rather difficult.

    Disliked the first half of this one but enjoyed the second half. Nice to see an old Romulan ship, Seven, & I like Elnor. Next week looks both cool and ridiculous at the same time. I think my nostalgia is wearing off and I'm seeing the cracks in this show now. Also feels like to me that the first three episodes should have been aired at once, we're halfway through the season and just now finally getting the plot going.

    I have problems with this show after this episode, and I HATE that I feel that way.
    I'd give it a 7. And that's generous.

    ... and then she passed out. ;)

    At least we now know that they don't go back to Earth.
    Picard has a holographic replica of his den in the Chateau on the La Sirena.
    Loved the Emergency Guest Relations Hologram. :guffaw:

    This episode explored a lot of new lore... like how planetary defense actually works.

    The trailer from last week made this look boring, but I found it to be very interesting. Yeah, Picard just kinda gave up on the Romulans. I can see why Nero was so mad at the Federation and Spock now.

    Was the Emergency Gunner Hologram supposed to be French or Slavic?
    I didn't quite get his accent.

    They went there -

    The Wallenberg-class transports are name dropped in this episode. I did a google search on Wallenberg. Full name - Raoul Wallenberg. During the 2nd World War, he was a Swedish diplomat who aided in the escape of thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis. In 1945, he was arrested by the Soviets, disappearing in their prison system.

    The weapons hologram is activated when Rios speaks in Spanish, according to the CC.

    Another 5/10

    Painfully slow and deadly dull. Small amount of action at the end. Nothing to write home about, but at least Seven finally arrives but only in the last seconds. Stewart is 10 years younger than Shatner, but looks 10 years older. That has been true in every episode, but this episode was even slower than he is. Hopefully Seven and Romulan warrior guy, sleepy and underwhelming though he is, might finally put some life into this sputtering old clunker. Long overdue to stop hitting the snooze button and crank this thing up.

    What's the one thing that differentiates Vulcans and Romulans? Vulcans don't lose their heads in a crisis.

    heh ...
    I believe that that Romulan Ex-Senator was having a problem getting Picard's point...,

    ... So Elnor gave him the shaft.
    :whistle:

    I was ok with the beheading. Not the most riveting pace for a fight scene, but I imagine that Romulan warriors beheading people is SOP for them. The problem is a low-energy Stewart sucking the life out of scenes. God bless him, but it's a snoozer.
