    What's more, the Tiptons capture the two feels of the shows perfectly. The Doctor is a little more outgoing and flighty while Picard is a little more buttoned down and rigid, thanks to his experiences with the Borg and his military background. Since its return, Doctor Who, for the most part, has been lighter in tone and generally leaves the door open for more comedic moments. For Star Trek: The Next Generation, those moments aren't quite the same. Instead, there was always a larger sense of exploration and social themes. When there was action, it felt more like watching a series that featured naval battles as opposed to those higher brow themes. That contrast has made this series a great deal of fun.

    This issue falls down on the action front, and even some cute character bits with Rory in Sickbay don't correct that imbalance. Worse still, the delicate balance of our leads is a bit wobbly as well, with Picard forced to play cabbage-head for the admittedly pretty-sort-of-marvelous Doctor. Read Full Review
