Episode #112: Violations

Post  BoG on Sat Jun 05, 2010 12:49 am




VIOLATIONS - episode #12 of 5th season / Air Date: 2/3/92; Directed by Robert Wiemer
written by Pamela Gray, Jeri Taylor; Story by Shari Goodhartz, T Michael, Pamela Gray

The 24th-century version of rape and it's not the Borg: the Enterprise-D crew host a family of aliens who are "telepathic historians" - they're kind of the 24th century versions of crystal ball seers, able to help people recall dim memories. The son has some issues regarding his father; pop is always bragging and makes the son look bad. Next thing, Troi is having a waking nightmare, of Riker raping her - but it's not really Riker - and promptly goes into a coma. Then it's Riker's turn - he collapses. Finally, it's Dr. Crusher - she dreams of visiting her dead husband's body in the morgue with Picard - and Picard has hair in this vision - horrible!
By this point, Picard is running out of top officers and is meeting with Data & La Forge to figure out what is going on. There are no surprises in this one - we knew that the son was squirrely in the first act - and it's slow. The only thing this episode offers is some weird angles and camera lenses during the nightmare sequences and the finale when things get physical (and rough) for Troi, who gets a chance to use some self-defense moves (though it takes Worf to finish things). BoG's Score: 4 out of 10
