'''Bashir:''' That's what makes it a tragedy. Caesar couldn't ''conceive'' that [[EtTuBrute his best friend would plot to kill him!]]\\
'''Garak:''' Tragedy is not the word I'd use. 'Farce' would be more appropriate.

->In the fascist world, Sir Keith gets murdered whereas in the real world he survives, and episode seven makes it clear that this is central to why [[ForWantOfANail there's hope for the real world]]....Astonishingly, upon returning to the real world, the Doctor's course of action is to [[FearIsTheAppropriateResponse run around like a lunatic]] so that even the Brigaider thinks [[CassandraTruth he's lost it]] instead of explaining what's going on.

->In the final analysis, ''[[{{Series/Smallville}} Smallville]]''[='=]s greatest point of weakness is going to turn out to be its utterly cavalier attitude towards character behavior...[[{{ComicBook/Superboy}} Conner]] tells Clark, who has super-hearing, that he heard the doctors talking about him, ''with his super-hearing''. Minutes later Clark tells Lois, within earshot of a person with super-hearing, that that person can never be told about his dual lineage. Thus throwing the rest of the episode in motion.\\\
Utter garbage.\\\
You cannot, just for the sake of telling the story you want to tell, reduce your characters to hollow, unbelievable shells and expect anyone to buy it.

->Just when I was saying that Chakotay had lost his way, the writers come along and make him [[WeCanRuleTogether a cult worshipper of a man with Godlike powers!]] It's not a shift in his favour and I was waiting patiently for the script to hit me with its Ď[[FakeDefector he was pretending all along]] so they could escapeí which never came. No, he really is as daft as he appears. [Robert] Beltran fails to convince on any level and when I read recently that he felt contempt for how the writers used his character [[CreatorBacklash I could actually sense that]] in this episode...it plays out in a way that he was simply charmed and had his ego stroked by an old man. When he starts playing about with simulations I was convinced he was perfectly stupid...ĎI thought we were working to ''avoid'' more destruction!í Chakotay you nob jockey ''any'' changes you make will [[ButterflyOfDoom cause destruction somewhere]].

->As with "Fight and Flight" and "Strange New World", Archer [[LeeroyJenkins blunders into a situation]] that he doesnít understand,...When TíPol points out that itís a spiritual site for Vulcans seeking meditation and enlightenment, Archerís response is incredibly self-centred. ''ďItís not every day we get to see an ancient Vulcan monastery,Ē'' he remarks, as if [[HawaiianShirtedTourist the universe exists for him to gawk at.]] Itís strange that he is so insistent and yet strangely hesitant once the ship enters orbit. ''ďI donít like dropping in on people unannounced,Ē'' he tells TíPol, even though it seems [[DidntThinkThisThrough quite late]] for this to come up.

->'''Chris''': Towards the end of the movie, itís revealed that Kayla [[FakingTheDead wasnít really dead]] (SURPRISE!), and that Sabretooth just drugged her and poured about a coffee cupís worth of blood onto her shirt.

'''Matt:''' Or, you know, [[LongList waited for police to arrive, had a coroner check her out, attended a funeral, seen to her burial, etc.]]\\

->So the plot is that someone's trying to kill Amidala for no reason, and Anakin and Obi-Wan are assigned to protect her. So, she doesn't sleep in an interior bedroom of this building with no window where it's safer, but rather in a room where the blinds are half-open in a city where nine hundred quadrillion people can see her--especially the robot that's here to kill her.\\\
They say they're doin' this so [[TheBait she can be bait to lure out the assassin]]--but she turns off any camera surveillance so she can have her privacy.\\\
Is that [[TooDumbToLive more important than your life, you dumb bimbo?]] You could at the very least aim the cameras at the windows, 'cause that's the only way in! ...Also, it's revealed in a bit that this assassin is a shapeshifter, which could very well be ''the most advantageous attribute that an assassin could possibly have''.\\\
But instead he went with the whole '[[BeeBeeGun bugs through the window]]' approach. Y'know, [[ComplexityAddiction the classic.]]
