* TNG Rewatch, Season 6:

- Chain of Command (parts 1 & 2 Combined). How to undermine crew morale and battle readiness. It is particularly hard watching TNG Ferengi in the current political climate. I had somehow misremembered this as being in season seven, so wasn't emotionally braced for it, Picard's torture and interrogation being strongly reminiscent of my childhood interrogations, because it was the first thing I ever saw that got that it is fundamentally about getting the victim to agree to the lie, a that is how they break us. At the same time this episode was much of the impetus for the rewatch, as a quarter of a century late it still haunts me. This time I am thinking about how this trauma interacts with his earlier violation at the hands of the Borg. I had honestly forgotten how philosophical this is. I do appreciate the ethical discussion. The mind games are always the hardest to watch for me. Picard's defiance and cleverness speaks to me on the deepest level. When this first aired, this was not a thought I was capable of having, but now I am pleased that he voluntarily went for therapy at the end.
