Yeah, so far it's been really good and fun. Ro Laren coming back was handled really well.

Loved the Vulcan crimelord :lol:

The one negative of that episode is it is unlikely we will see her again.

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

Yeah seeing the Vulcan crime lord was really cool. They seem to be nailing even these very minor characters.

Great episode.  In the future though, it'd be nice if people here would wait some 12-18hrs for spoilers?  The series doesn't air until 21h00 Thursdays GMT-5 over here...

They are big on nostalgia/fan service.  It's really a TNG last tour, their most successful franchise to date.  I think we've seen everyone from the bridge crew, except Laforge himself.  I second the call for O'Brien.  Wish Sisko would come back...  But it'd be hard to explain his aging.  Bring back an upgraded Defiant dammit!

I wish we could get spoiler formatting again. :(

Funny, I've watched all STNG episodes, although not for a long time, and I couldn't remember the relationship between Picard and her.

It's in the last season I believe.  She came onboard with an attitude problem, sort of.  Picard took her under his wing, made her into a fine officer, and he then sent her undercover to the Maquis, when she ultimately betrayed the Federation to join the Maquis.

It would have been nice if her character had later join Voyager.  Or if we'd see her in DS9, even if just a cameo.

Pretty sure the Kyra Neris character was at first meant to be Ro Laren, but she turned it down.

You're right, I just went to read about it on IMBD, and Michelle Forbes turned the role down because she wanted to do something else.

But was there a hint of a "relationship" between the two? the Picard episode seemed to imply that.
I may watch that last season again.

I'm definitely scheduling my long-planned TNG rewatch for this summer.

Not that kind of relationship, nothing romantic.  Really a mentor relationship, they had a couple of episodes where they got closer and got to know one another better, but that's it.

You can skip most of the first season.
The first 2 episodes, the last one.  And then you can skip most of the 2nd season 2.  The death of Tasha Yar one is ok for its future implications, but aside that, maybe The Measure of a Man.

Thing with TNG is that that was during the day when 24 episodes were the norm. Because of this every season had its meh episodes. I remember back in the day watching it "live" with my roommate, and whenever an episode featured Worf's son, or Deanna's mom,  we were like, "fuck, we looked forward to a new episode the whole week, and this is what we get."
