[TNG] The Vengeance Factor

[TNG] Season 3, Episode 9: The Vengeance Factor

the Vengeance FactorRating: 3

This episode has kind of a standard plot for Star Trek, but it was executed well, and was entertaining enough for a 3. Even though it might not mean much to some people, I really like watching Picard fill the role of mediator. It’s fun to see him act threatening when he needs to all while being diplomatic.

Riker beams in to stop her plot of killing the other group’s leader. Apparently her group, who were wiped out, came up with a way of messing with her genes and making her age slower, she can withstand being stunned by a phaser, and they developed a disease that is transmitted through touch and only works on the group of people they want to kill. How did her group get wiped out by those idiots??

She tries to touch the guy so Riker shoots her a few times. She won't stop so he vaporizes her. It seems like there had to of been some way to stop her without vaporizing her

    I think…I haven’t seen this one? I thought I’d seen them all, my mind is blown.

    Hahaha – that viewscreen comment is brilliant! They do that at various points throughout the series when Picard is talking to someone at an angle. I assume the screen’s technology projects some sort of illusive 3D perspective shift depending upon the viewer’s vantage point. Or something.
