    I saw this episode for the second time last night, and it was as good, if not better than the first time. It was an interesting story, and it was neat seeing our heros in the recreation of the OK corral. In fact, I think the best part of the episode was the setting and how alien everything looked even though it was supposed to be a recreation. Spock's science explination was a bit confusing, but other than that, it was a cool episode.

  2. This episode is pretty underrated in my opinion. It was great to see Data take on a leadership role for the first time, and I really liked his friend. I think the best part of the story those was what was happening with the Shiliak and the Enterprise. It was a shame we didn't see more of the Shiliak corporate because they really were interesting and really alien. I loved the scene where Picard is trying to negotiate with the corporate and he turns the tables on 'em.


    Riker: You enjoyed that

    Picard: You're damned right.



  3. In tribute to Mike Piller, I watched this episode this last week and gained a new found respect for it. While it isn't the best premiere episode, it has moments that make it memorable. I think my favorite moment though, which I ended up getting a bit emotional, was when Stubbs and Wes was in the launch bay comparing the situation they were in with Baseball. I also loved the scene when Stubbs was in the quarters going over a season in his mind. I knew that these both scenes were Mr. Piller's ideas and it was a great touch. It was also great to see a peaceful resolution and a creation of a new culture.



  4. George is gay? Hmmm. Well I wonder how all the Christian Star Trek fans will react. I'm bisexual so of course I don't mind at all. I met him once at a convention and he was a nice guy...and funny.


    I'm a christain and I'm glad he's happy. I don't like that lifestyle, but I respect it, and tolorate it.

  5. I said yesterday that I didn't know Piller was ill, but I decided to watch some of the special features for Insurrection Collectors Edition and it was just unreal to see him like he was. He wasn't like the guy who did the candid interviews for TNG, DS9, and Voyager. It almost reminded me of when Jimmy Doohan did a feature on the third season set of Star Trek. It still doesn't take the shock away, and dying of cancer at such a young age too. I really wish we found a cure to cancer. I know they're working on Aids research, but it seems like Cancer is much more leathal than AID's is at this time. :blush:

  6. I am shocked, emotional, and just really really sad. He was a great writer and really gave alot to the Trek franchise. I loved his interviews on the DVDs because they were always so candid and brought out his brillience as both a leader and an ordinary writer. :blush:


    RIP Mike.
