The Trekzone Review
Arguably the best episode of “modern-Trek.” I would have to say Patrick Stewart’s performance is what brings the weight of the plight of these people home for me… in the span of forty four minutes he goes from being in command of a starship, to not accepting that he has been transported to this world and eventually living out his life with his wife and children who will never grow as old as he has.
I also wonder whether this is even more bitter-sweet for Picard after he spent time with his brother back on Earth after the Battle of Wolf 359 and realised that he has waited too long to have a family… a fact that he reflects on in Generations. What made this resonate even more was the time jumping… you just can’t help but get attached to the characters in this story.
This is where Star Trek turned a corner and became just at home about true character-driven stories rather than needing to add in the “alien of the week” A-plot.
