  • Early Spacedock model from Trek III that was re-used in this episode

    • Finished Filming Model that use re-used in this episode

      • Gorgeous model – and I love all that neon!

        • wry observer of folly

          Would have loved if they had used this model for Starbase 375 in DS9. Regula 1 was way overused.

      • Spacedocks make a lot more sense — and look better — than having a Starship built on land in the country, as in the Star Trek 2009 film. And was wonderful in ST:TMP, if overly long.

  • Yet another species/concept that was underused. Geez, show the Bynars at least more than once…and the Starbase…my goodness, just stock footage of entering the Starbase would make an episode special…or orbiting nearby… very interesting that this episode was supposed to be before “The Big Goodbye” to explain the holodeck malfunctions….

    The Bynars were fascinating, even if the sounds of their hip buffers is too “dial-up modem” for modern tastes. I liked their reasoning for keeping their plans a secret – “You mgiht have-” “-Said No.” – because it was suitably alien.
    However, if their plan required two people to revive their planetary computer, why did they only trap Riker? Minuet herself said that getting Picard was a lucky accident. And why make it difficult to access the stored file? Minuet would have been ideal to keep the password.
    Still, it was a truly engaging episode, one that didn’t need real conflict and offered some glimpses into the crew’s off-duty lives.

    Perhaps it’s judgemental but here’s my take. A robot or hologram can never be autonomous. Thus, anyone dating one is not looking for an equal partner but rather a subservient belonging. Minuet will never challenge Reichers beliefs, need him for emotional support, or think/act in a way that Reicher doesn’t wish.

    I know real women with real boyfriends like that. Even though Minuet isn’t being mistreated (because she’s a program) that doesn’t change the fact that Reicher seemingly wants a relationship with that kind of dynamic. So, yea, I’d be one of the crew members giving side eye.

    I don’t have a problem with the fantasy/playacting side though. I think the scene where Reicher was shopping for a woman was a little drawn out, and other parts were really creepy and leery. But if crew members want to sneak off for a romp in the holodeck to blow off some steam, more power too them.

    In any case, Reicher is only entranced by the idea of Minuet. I don’t think Reicher would go so far as to bring her as his date to the office Christmas party.
