Re: EpDis: Acts Of Sacrifice

My favorite bit of the Corelliwhatever/Taq plot (which was interesting) is where Taq bows to Ivanova at the end. The servant was quicker on the uptake than the master!

Re: EpDis: All Alone In The Night

A fine episode. While there could have been more Hague, yes, I love the final scene -- it's such a surprise since it doesn't fit the tone of the rest of the ep.

And the dream is pretty nifty even...
