I understand some are saying that the entire Enterprise series was one big Holodeck recreation on the Enterprise-D during the Pegasus incident. I think that particular view cheapens the whole Enterprise series, and personally prefer to consider TATV as a stand-alone TNG episode where Riker is looking at the events leading up to the signing of the Federation Charter in order to get some perspective on what was going on in his life at that particular moment.

In fact, Pegasus and These are the Voyages could make a pretty good TV movie if combined.....(just a thought)

Hadn't thought of it that way. If you watched 'These are the Voyages' as a TNG episode it might actually almost work, if you could get past Frakes and Sirtis looking visibly older from 'Pegasus'. But yeah, the story of that episode is in Frakes' decision, not what happens on the holodeck and IMO that's why the Enterprise finale is so weak.

Search "Star Trek Loyalty and Command" on youtube. Someone actually edited the two episodes together, I just watched it the other night. It certainly does make an interesting episode!

Some of Braga's scripts don't convey his ideas too well after they are shot.

Previous era-crossing episodes like "Trial and Tribble-ations" or "Flashback" made the same point, that in the good ol' days matters were handled a bit less bureaucratic, that relying on each other was more important than rules and regulations, in a more clear and obvious way.
