    I’m good at defending things, and even I am not gonna go too far on defending these. Did he really say snog? Man I have to revisit.
    The only things I can say, is it’s not really a Bajoran bucket, it just looks a bit like one — in that it more closely resembles a vase.
    And Shaw is a bit Bones-like in his anachronisms, but yeah the ‘pot’ stuff is annoying as fuck. Fortunately we didn’t then get him hunting edibles and getting the munchies, for that authentic Californian politicking (neither left nor right, either side has its cheech and Chong contingent) on the subject.
    I suppose there’s an argument that (a) Shaw used his clearance to access all Picards logs, having a bit of an obsession with the former Locutus, possibly in an attempt to seek solace that the guy really was no longer a Borg and (b) Picard was a kiss and tell in the logs kind of guy.
    It’s a handwave, but the rest of the seasons stuff has been pretty good, and more enjoyable than anything in a looooonnng time. Probably since Baku.

    It looked a lot like Odo's bucked. It literally needs to be any receptacle if they need to de-solid.

    I get that with Shaw, but we did the Picard-hatred with Sisko. And I accepted that as a setup for DS9. But most normal sopshticated humans would accept that he was violated and not in control.

    And that's a weird contradiction with Picard that is clearly very.... 'modern aware', yet will victim-blame an old white man that was raped by the Borg because... well he's old and white.

    Agreed: I really felt her death but, unlike Hugh, it made narrative sense.
    Tidbit: in Matalas’ intentions he wanted to reveal she was beamed out at the last moment and held captive by the changelings.m but they had no budget to film this (and a lot of other stuff). All in all I think it’s better this way: she went out in a blaze of glory and this kind of “nobody ever dies” philosophy is kinda the opposite excess of what they did in season 1.
    Kzinti and Macintosh like this.

    And there's nothing to say it didn't happen just because we didn't see it. As President Chekov's father used to say: "hope is never lost... there are always possibilities."

    I never expected Ro Laren to die! :wah:

    Although marginal in both TNG and DS9, she was such a badass character! Barring Major Kira, Ro!

    PIC S3 is now feeling like a Season trying too hard to tie up loose ends from previous series. Sigh. I love it still.
