Goofs

When Picard is reviewing Lwaxana's journal and reveals that "there's a seven-year gap," the gap has barely begun to become evident on screen. As the dialog between Picard and Troi progresses, Picard continues to scroll through a list of deleted entries. I.e. he calculates the length of the gap well before he reaches the last deleted entry.

Another Sad Episode
28 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Season 7 was certainly the most introspective season of this series, with several visits to the subconscious of the major characters. Dark Page explores the consequences of psychic trauma - in this case, for Lwaxana Troi. In Majel Barrett's final appearance on Next Generation, she gave what was probably the finest performance of her career. It's a shame this new depth of character never had a chance to be built on in later episodes. Lwaxana's crisis was clearly a turning point in her relationship with Deanna, and might have led to some interesting future episodes. It's interesting that I watch the episode and wonder why Majel Barrett wasn't nominated for an Emmy Award, and another review thought she was terrible. To each his own, I guess...
