Synopsis: The right of machines are questioned, and a Federation scientist is impatient and willful. Craaazy stuff.
Memory Alpha Summary: All for one and one for all?
Review: Hey a poker game with a real bet! Seeing Worf with his beard shaved would have been awesome, but Crusher as a brunette? No thanks.
The episode starts slow but slowly builds into a fantastic crescendo, reminiscent of its cousin, The Measure of a Man. Not surprisingly, I find myself moved by another Spiner performance. Data’s decision to be insubordinate to save the exocomps actually holds some water, and the solution and subsequent climax are perfect. When Picard tells Data “It was the most human decision you’ve ever made,” I couldn’t agree more.
