This is a little embarrassing, because I’ve gone on record saying I don’t like holodeck stories. And I especially don’t like them when Sherlock Holmes is involved. And I’m not crazy about Reg Barclay either. And yet – this episode has it all – and it doesn’t quite suck. There’s enough cool wheels-within-wheels going on here to keep it all interesting. I did have to throw my arms at the end with the more ridiculous than usual deus ex machina – or in this case – deus ex BOXina. A magic yellow cube to keep everyone happy. Surprising Picard, what with his dedication to “Truth! Scientific Truth! or Personal Truth!” would allow a psych-out like this. . .but by this point in the show it was really time to wrap things up.
