This one's pretty cool.. Granted, it's derivative of Trek several times over, but it does present a new scenario; a real person from the past brought to life. I could have done without the cigarette subplot, it was a distraction from the primary story, which was excellent.

Yeah even with the Trek derivativeness, I really enjoyed this one.

I for one thought the cigarette addiction satire was hilarious.

I'm with Jelly. Bortus and Klyden getting addicted to cigarettes was hilarious. Not sure if it was better than the mustache yet, but these are the types of things Bortus pulls of perfectly.

Overall I liked the episode, it was a new spin on a concept we've all seen before but I liked it.

For a story that really retreaded the whole Geordi/Leah Brahms thing, I thought this episode was really well done. Tugged at all the right heartstrings, and Leighton Meester was fantastic. And yes, I thought the cigarette subplot was hilarious :lol:

Yep that was definitely the highlight of the episode. I think I would have liked this more if they had focused a bit less on the main plot. LOL :jonas: I mean I liked it, but by the end I felt like there was too much of it.

It was reminiscent of that, but Leah was a contemporary to Geordi, this woman was 400 years dead. I was sorta hoping that the time gap would slip somehow and she would figure it out, and eventually learn that she was herself as recreated from her phone; that she had been remembered 400 years in her future.

They'll steal "Elementary, Dear Data" and "Ship in a Bottle" from TNG at a later time. :lol:

Sorry jelgate, apparently I give you reps too much, it won't me give any to you.

I loved the whole thing and that includes the cigarettes. I loved how they each tried one and then the next step was to produce 500 or 1,000 of them! That was a big leap.

I almost thought we were going to see their child had gotten addicted via second hand smoke, but alas we did not.

The main plot touched on Malloy's desire to find a relationship a struggle he has had since season one if I recall.

Out of all the characters it makes sense he would connect with someone from 2015.
