Yes, the mirror episodes were kind'a cool. It seemed like the writers let loose knowing it was the final season.

Re: Star Trek Thread: To Boldly Split Infinitives

Mirror episode of Enterprise was great but that wasn't the second to last episode. Forget what it was exactly, something something birth of federation, blah blah meow chow. Just remember it was much better than the finale, which was terrible. FU fat Riker.

Couldn't disagree more about bringing back Riker and Troi for finale.

I'm not as shallow as you are apparently. I appreciated the depth of the plot, and how it was executed.

ST TNG S4E15: First Contact

A very good episode, with nuanced writing and drama, delivering a first contact scenario that feels real, if a little cerebral/clinical. I also really dug the insertion of what I felt was a dig at Kirk's antics, where the alien lady played by Bebe Neuwirth (Lilith from Cheers and Frasier) insist Riker make love to her before she helps him to escape...

This one really felt like they'd polished and polished this one, and came up with a very fine script indeed.

8/10

Re: Star Trek Thread: To Boldly Split Infinitives

I like how right from the get-go Riker has somehow managed to blow his cover and get knocked unconscious.

This episode had a very different feel from almost any other ST episode --it tells the story of a first contact largely from the alien perspective rather than from the perspective of the ST crew. Overall, I was disappointed, though. Too many meetings and no real tension to it. Basically this was a chill-out, ST for ST fans sort of episode.
