    "Chain of Command, Part II" is the only one that immediately comes to mind. Part I is fine, but it's the interrogation drama in Part II that is the most memorable.

    I did enjoy the concept of Picard being tortured but would Gul Madred really have had free reign to sadistically torture Picard without any results? Star Fleet knew the mission might fail and for that very reason reassigned him before he became aware of any strategic data that might under mine Federation defenses.

    Cardassians are clever and shrewd, they would have seen that a POW was more valuable than a potentially dead torture victim. I can't reconcile Madred's position with his chosen methods.

    I don't think Madred ever would have actually killed Picard.
