YMMV / Star Trek: The Next Generation S4E5 "Remember Me"

Go To

  • Harsher in Hindsight: In his sole scene of the episode, Dr. Quaice expresses to Beverly his grief over his wife's recent passing after decades together. Only five years later, Bill Erwin (who portrayed Quaice) lost his wife of 47 years.
  • Values Resonance: As detailed in this 2016 essay (which Gates McFadden happily shared on her Twitter feed), "Remember Me" contains a remarkable feminist message.
    • Can be considered by some as a Broken Aesop, as the pro-feminist elements largely occur in the pocket universe that formed based on Beverly's own thoughts while a group of men are working to save her from the outside "real" universe. At the same time, her son is the one spearheading the efforts to save his mother, and the rescue effort hinged on her realizing the problem and making the conscious choice on her own to come through the rift.

How well does it match the trope?
