    Kirsten Beyer is quite possibly the best writer in all of the modern ST productions.

    So what's your take on "A Piece of the Action?"

    I can't speak to what she does as a staff writer, but of the five episodes she is credited with writing in Disco and Picard, three (Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum, Unification III and Stardust City Rag) are the worst episodes of those series for me.

    Fine, if forgettable. Certainly don't recall anything anywhere near as grating as Mount was (and I normally love his work).

    Mount was great in The Elysian Kingdom. I thought Peck was the weak link in that episode.

    It was fun watching Anson play against type as a cowardly fop.
