The Trekzone Review

I always love the Romulan eps of The Next Generation, I think they were used with more effectiveness than the Borg because they weren’t a super villan… they were just the Russians dressed up with pointed ears and eyebrows – Cold War adversaries that we don’t know a lot about, but we are taught to fear them and doubt any good intentions they may have. it’s not until later in ‘Face of the Enemy’ that we learn that they are not all almost-xenophobes.

This ep also gave some nice character development for Ensign Ro, she picked up a few extra dimensions. Unfortunatley for her though, she’ll never find out what Riker was going to say to her!
