Did You Know?

Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau:Three nights ago outside of Reno, this car was hit by a tractor trailer.
Derek Morgan:Any survivors?
Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau:The truck driver walked away unharmed. Jonathan and Rebecca Gallen, the passengers in the car, were DOA. When the local sheriff arrived on the scene, he noticed several things - no blood spatter inside the car, no seat belt burns, no lacerations from the air bags.
Dr. Spencer Reid:They were dead before the accident.
Jennifer 'JJ' Jareau:The autopsy report confirmed that, and the cause of death. Blunt force head trauma and evidence of rape and torture to the woman.

Dear, dear Mr Crusher!, 29 March 2009
Author: scorpiocat from Northampton

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

My, my, my. How terrible to see that a Starfleet cadet grew up to be such a nasty man! Mind you, wasn't it obvious, even then, that such a Mummy's boy would come to a nasty end? Captain Picard must be so disappointed!

I have to say it took me a while to figure out why the actor was so familiar, but once I had, I have to admit he did a great acting job. Love this new series, the opening episode was excellent. The thing I love about this programme is the characters. I'd hope to see a little more about each of them, in the this series, or maybe the next. I hope it runs and runs. Although that may change if the plot lines become impossible to suspend belief for. Keep up the good work writers!
