11001001 - a very dumb episode
 
several errors and gaffes in this one:

Minuet accessed the "foreign language databank" when she heard Jean-Luc's name? For one thing, names mean nothing when it comes to someone's spoken language. I have a very French-sounding name yet I don't know a lick of French. And "foreign language..."? Foreign to whom in the 24th century?

Everyone's evacuated the Enterprise to the starbase except for Riker and Picard. The Enterprise is leaving. Quniteros is called from someone on the comm, "this is Starbase 74 to Commander Quinteros". Ummm, aren't they already on the starbase???

The Bynars claim that they only intended Riker to remain and that Picard's staying behind was "an unfortunate happenstance". Okay, if that's true, they would have been so screwed because they would have needed even numbered people operating the terminals on the bridge to reboot their computer on their home planet.

Strange how a species called the Bynars would live on Bynar and they would speak in binary and their names would consist of ones and zeros.

...and Tasha had to put that little Latino accentuation on Quinteros' name, didn't she?

I like this episode...
It had something.

I remember seeing this episode and wondering how the Ent-D could fit through the same doors that the original 1701 barely eeked through in TSFS.

funny...I thought the same exact thing... It was cool seeing the Galaxy in the Space Dock and that cool about-face manuver it did when it left and jumped to warp.

...and more.

I thought it was more the acting than the stories but it may have been alot of things.

The Enterprise arriving and leaving spacedock in this episode was awesome for small screen. It reinforced the idea that TNG was working with "motion picture" quality visual FX for television. Granted, for the first season, a lot of those visuals were a little hokey, but the spacedock sequence was great. :)

Obviously, as the show progressed, the stories and the visuals only got better. I was thoroughly impressed with the Klingon battle in "Redemption Pt. 1"...extremely ambitious visual FX for its time.

Yep, but name an episode of the series or any of the movies that are error and gaffe free!

I'd have to disagree with that personally, many of the standalone episodes in season 1 and 2 are a lot more interesting than most of the standalone ones of seasons 6 and 7 - only in 3,4,5 are they really good.

It's a larger structure than the Earth station?:D

I thought so as well at the time, especially the space effects. I enjoy watching the evac and departure sequence here as much as the TSFS one. :D


(11001001 is among favourite season 1 eps for me, gaffes regardless!!:thumbup:)
