Masks, TNG S7 E17 Review, The Battle Bridge

While investigating a rogue comet, the cultural archive concealed inside begins taking over both the Enterprise and Data.

Today James and Lou discuss (Masks) and what we think of it.  Please note, Colin Higgins, a long time friend to the Lou Trek Show and Battle Bridge podcasts, was slated to be a part of this review.  Sadly, bowed out at the last minute, saying he wasn’t feeling well.  Days later, Colin took his own life.  I did not know Colin was wearing a mask of his own.  Being on the other side of the world, I couldn’t see the pain he was suffering.  The worst I ever felt about Colin was when he would get a little annoyed if James and I went on a tangent.  Other than that, I would have never suspected Colin was anything but a happy man who loved Star Trek and had a fondness for our show.  We are heartbroken over the loss of our friend.  We will discuss more about his death in the upcoming episode, Eye of the Beholder, which was very hard to record, considering the subject of suicide that the episode deals with and investigates.

If anyone would like to record a little something about Colin, please do so.  Send it to as soon as you can and it will be posted on an upcoming show.  It would really be good, if it can be done in the next few days and be a part of our next review, Eye of the Beholder.
