Star Trek – The Next Generation:  1×15 – 11001001

Angel One, just… it tries.  It tries so hard to deliver a message of equality between the sexes that somewhere along the way it did a 180 and didn’t even notice.

11001001 on the other hand, is probably the best episode of the series so far.  It’s kind of dumb how Picard and Riker, captain and first officer of the Federation’s flagship and therefore among the best that Star Fleet has to offer, allow themselves to be distracted by a sexy hologram as the rest of the ship is evacuated. But this episode at least had interesting ideas.

Is there a single word for someone who literally falls in love with a video game character, as Riker pretty much does here?  I suppose there must be, but if not, someone is probably going to have to invent it in the near future.
