Starting A Final Unity is like time travel to the 90’s where a young kid spent hours glued to the TV watching the adventures of Picard and co. wishing for an awesome bear just like Riker’s.
Remember the excitement when the away team beamed down to an unknown planet? The thrill of Worf fighting against some weird creature? The awesome beard? Data finding clues and unravelling mysteries? Picard saving the day with the right call at the right moment? Those were good times. You might also remember Q, the Holodeck malfunctioning and all the other shitty things the show had but those aren’t important.
Now, the beard is almost a reality (beardy but not as awesome) and A Final Unity is like time travel as it was released in 1995. Does still hold up? Let’s inverse the polarity and reconnect the couplings and we’ll find out.
