Storyline

Captain Jean-Luc Picard convinces Fleet Admiral Shanthi that the Federation must no longer maintain neutrality because the Duras side's alliance with the Romulans turns the raging Klingon civil war into sort of a proxy war, which Gowron's loyal side is loosing. All major Enterprise officers take battle ship commands, including Data, who had to ask for this first and immediately faces a transfer request from his first officer, Lt. Cmdr. Christopher Hobson, who has a prejudice against androids, yet Data keeps him on. Picard is startled to hear that the Romulan commander Sela claims to be Tasha's daughter, first thinks it's a lie, then hears Guinan's theory confirmed, which would mean the previous Enterprise is indirectly responsible for the present conflict. Now the civil war is going badly, Dorn's loyalty to Gowron and his family leadership are challenged at his own side, he falls in the Duras's hands. Picard coordinates his fleet with Gowron's forces, facing Romulan forces outside ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

One of the blockade ships is named Tienanmen, probably in reference to Beijing's Tienanmen Square. Gene Roddenberry based the Romulans on communist China. See more »

Goofs

When the Romulans disrupt the tachyon net, Data reports that the net is no longer effective in the range of 10 million kilometers around his ship. At the same moment, a display on the Enterprise shows this hole in the net being almost half the size of the entire net. This makes the entire net about 40 million kilometers wide, which is vanishingly small compared to interstellar distances. The Romulans never had to worry about passing through the net, as it would have taken them only seconds to go around it. See more »

Data shows some initiative
13 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

I far as I can see Data show some initiative when the Federation net was disrupted by the Romulans. If every officer and/or sergeant was squash every time he/she show any initiative in respond to changes in a combat situation, then we have no one above the rank or private/second lieutenant. The German Army and Waffen SS of World War II would not have last for six years, if their men were not allow to take advantage of a favorable combat situation or react positively to an unfavorable combat situation. The same can be said for the Israeli Army or any other army. Look at how many times Captain Kirk had to take the initiative. At his court-martial, they read off Captain Kirk's decorations including the highest award that Starfleet gave which shows his ability to react to combat situations. In the movie, Wrath of Khan, Captain Kirk explain to the female Vulcan officer how he took the initiative to change the Starfleet program so that he would win. In the end, he got a commendation for original thinking.

If Captain Kirk or Commander Riker were in the same situation, they would have probably done the same thing as Commander Data would have done.
