Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
“Suspicions” has a decent premise, a solid story, and some good one off characters, but the execution is piss-poor. Instead of telling the story straight, they decided to make is told mostly in flashback form. I don’t like it when they tell most of a story in flashback, and then part way through they say “there is the unfinished story, now I gotta go finish it!”
I liked that there was a Ferengi scientist, we have gotten to the point in the series where DS9 is up and running, and the Ferengi of TNG-yesterday are no more. We got a slightly more serious take on them. Without Ferengi scientists they never would have got to space. Its nice to see them recognizing that for once.. They can’t all be money hungry idiots.
