Trekathon 211: Silicon Avatar (TNG)

April 12th, 2010

The Silicon Entity returns, this time without Lore1.

I was a bit interested with the theme the episode appeared to be establishing early on, that of whether to fight or communicate. But rather than develop the conflict further, instead we get a lot of time spent with someone trying to recover their lost son through Data.

Everything just ends up a little underplayed, and the finale of the episode just doesn’t have enough to it.

211 down, 526 to go.


  1. Although it did kind of bug me that no one was making sure Data was still Data, and not Lore, at any point in the episode.
