A large space standoff occurs. A character dies and is resurrected in perhaps the single most predictable plot development possible. A bunch of characters we can't possibly care about express utterly baseless emotions about characters that we do.

Here it is, folks: the best part of the episode. Save yourself the other 50 minutes and go clean between the tiles in your shower or something.

Picard decides to postpone the main plot yet again in order to visit some friends that he arbitrarily decided not to a few episodes ago.

Three characters we actually care about who are also not actively murdering, betraying, or lying to anyone. BORING!
