Hello Trek Tv I keep meaning to write, but believe it or not I’m one of the few people who is busier than ever, despite half the world being in lockdown. What a static warp bubble would do for us now. So Wesley the so called child genius is carrying out one of his many experiments and once again fucks up, yet some how once again is seen as the somewhat saviour. Well him and creepy alien guy, his PA team is off the chart. So to dissect, Wesley is one the flag ship of the federation and decides to carry out and experiment in engineering, you know the most fundamental part of the ship where to use a pakled term, they make things go. Commander pissy pants aka Geordie no management skills La Forge, comes down to do what he does, shout at someone and in the process they zap dear old mom into a pocket of space time. Now from here on in we see a few mistakes, the “wind” from the vortex blows papers off the desk. Yet in the future they don’t use paper, it’s all electronic. Unless of course the doc was looking into ancient texts to learn new ways to perform euthanasia, I’m sure Star Fleet has cottoned on to all her other techniques. Now Aside from the fact that despite everyone, from her point of view slowly disappearing, none of the crew thinks she’s is cray cray. Now I think this is interesting because we now this reality is created by her, so we are seeing these people from her point of view. Which means she knows they wouldn’t think her cray cray. The other interesting thing is that the person who disappears from her perception last is Picard, not Wesley. Probably because she knows her son caused this fuck up on some level and beside he didn’t do he chores again so deserves to die. Gates really gets to show he acting chops here and she did all the stunts as well, later finding out she was pregnant, oops. We get so few crusher centric episodes to get one where she carries the entire episode is great. There are the standard mistakes, you see the Boom mic twice. The bubble actually expands in certain graphics when it should be shrinking, the lights in the turbo lift indicate she is going up, when in fact she got on at the bridge, so there is no up. The plus side, crusher should clearly enter a sprint race, because the bubble is collapsing at 15 metres a second, yet she outruns it. What ever she had for breakfast was good shit. Oh and “Doctor” Crusher mom to Wesley emerges from the bubble sees her son slumped over the console, Says nothing to him. Nor goes to help him, but instead talks to the traveller. Which incidentally brings me to my favourite stating the bleeding obvious bit of dialogue. “ the alien from Tau Alpha C said he was a Traveler.” “Oh you mean the traveller!” Guess the writers where on decaf that day. Oh and why is it when the traveller/Wesley do the whole manipulation thing they close there eyes. I mean the traveller is probably getting off on it, as for Wesley I can only assume it’s so he can’t see his actually pressing a blank panel. Live long and podcast Colin
