Ahhhhh, now THIS is what we needed.


A superb episode.


The way the Ferengi captain was messing with Picard's mind was excellent.


This episode has the Stargazer and the "Picard Maneuver" and an excellent sequence where the Enterprise literally "catches" the Stargazer before Picard can attack.


It reminded me of a "Vietnam Flashback" story, where Picard is totally lost in the memory.


Fantastic episode.


I give it a rating of 5

I'm giving it a 5.


And I don't know for a villian race that are supposed to be such failures. 2 episodes featuring the Ferengi... and 2 pretty good episodes.
