    What's the latest in Trek fandom? Brophygate is in full swing with Bruce Maddox having been played by someone other than the original actor. For some, it has an impact, for others, not so much. Will the recasting ever be explained? Will one brave soul dare to pose the question at a convention? Who knows.

    What's new for Jean-Luc Picard? Maddox is dead but the mission is far from it. This episode takes Picard and the gang closer to the artifact and closer to Soji. And what of Dr. Jurati? She's been burdened with a big secret, causing her to commit an act where there may be no going back. Has the downward spiral begun? What will happen to her when the gang finds out what she did? And how far down will she go? Or can she recover if someone sympathizes with what she felt she had to do?

    I'm hoping that the literal mystery box Soji opens indicates the mystery box will open for us as viewers as well. So far we're halfway through with no notable reveals since the initial setup.

    The Impossible Box sounds like a really epic porno.

    My confidence in the angst-ridden hate-watchers is slipping.


    Wet and Slippery?
    :p

    Can we sssume that "The Impossible Box" refers not only to the Artifact Cube, but also the difficult situations the individual characters have gotten themselves into?

    He does go to Riker having what seems to be a problem.

    In the trailer for ep 6, we see Jurati on the bridge (is tht the right term?) as if nothing had happened...

    Being the "Earths leading cyberneticist" I would imagine she'd not have too much issue fudging or deleting the logs from the EMH of what went on in that room.

    Still haven’t seen the previous episode (on vacation) but couldn’t stay away from spoilers. Will probably see 1x05 and 1x06 back to back at the same time. :techman:

    It could refer to some aspect of the cube itself.

    Is there something unusual about that cube, it is the one that was disabled for some mysterious reason and according to Maddox there were no synths yet.

    ...Or when it no longer agrees to losing to him in chess. Or ontological debates, or whatever.

    In the clip from “Ready Room” we see young Soji going to see her dad. Dad’s face is not shown which could indicate someone familiar. Initially I thought it could be a human looking Data, but maybe it will be a younger (no beard) Maddox.

    Prediction: Picard will have Locutus flashbacks when he gets near whatever one of the Wonder Twins is on the Borg Cube.

    That is pretty much guaranteed as soon as he sees it never mind beaming aboard.

    And Locutus flashbacks make for great teaser clips.

    It was hard to tell, but the guy seemed like he was balding a bit, while Maddox has a full head of hair.
