While Wesley takes the gruelling entrance exam for Starfleet Academy, Picard finds himself similarly tested…

The Trekzone Review

Another explosive cold open, and the introduction to Lieutenant Commander Remmick – one of two breeze in’s aboard ship that blow a lot of hot air then leave and never get a mention again – and also Admiral Quinn.

The season finale’s A-plot is setup here, obviously before Admiral Quinn is “taken over”, and also to have the first season recapped in this way, the other side of the coin, was a nice touch.

The interrogation scenes were well directed and cut, I love that style – where the “interrogatee” changes while the shot is on the interrogator, keeps you guessing and it isn’t the only time in Trek that it’ll be used. It was also great to see Wesley not succeed at the entrance exam, otherwise it would’ve been just another main character always succeeding…
