Incredibly ANOTHER superb episode.


This third season of TNG was excellent.


Another sympathetic character with depth in Danar. The idea of the hero soldier being mistreated upon their return to society is very much an echo of what happened after Vietnam and their are obvious "First Blood" overtones to this episode.


Excellent thoughtful episode.


Rating = 4

I gave it a 5. Very well written Vietnam war parable. Picard was good in this one. The moral to be garnered here is "what do we do with our soldiers once they return home from war and find it hard to re-assimilate?" A great question. Makes one ponder the gravity of such a situation.
