Bortas has marital issues because he becomes addicted to porn, gets caught jerking off by his wife, and then some of the porn he downloaded gives the shared computer a virus.


So...which of the show's writers did this exact series of events happen to? :lol:

I was waiting for his other half to catch him in the act haha. I thought the goop in the foodhall was linked but didnt catch the reference till the virus came up.

At the end, I thought it showed good writing that they could only save 30 of the people. Made it feel a little more realistic that a last minute save didn't go perfectly.

I am kind of annoyed of how Bortus didn't get punished for almost destroying the ship

That's very TNG though, isn't it? Like how Worf got a "formal reprimand" from Picard when he killed Duras, but there were no on-screen consequences at all.

I would also expect it to be more difficult to load and random program onto the same systems that control command of the ship. Even Windows enterprise computers allow me to block people from installing stuff without admin approval if desired.
