Synopsis: Picard plays JFK and Captain Tamalok plays Khrushchev.
Memory Alpha Summary: Looks like Castro was left out
Review: I like how closely this episode follows up the events of The Enemy. Too many TNG episodes have no bearing on any other, and it’s nice to see an actual progression of acts and consequences. The middle part is a bit slow, when the entire crew debates over and over and over whether or not Admiral Jarok is telling the truth about being a traitor; however, the endgame is fabulous. Picard’s toe-to-toe with Tamalok is chilling television, while his surprise for Tamalok in the final hour is perfect. The writers did an excellent job at alluding to Picard’s back-up plan while hiding it enough that it becomes a surprise. They could have easily gotten lazy and written a deus ex machina.
