Review for The Sky's the Limit

I noted on kradical's blog that Sci-Fi Online has posted their review of The Sky's the Limit, giving it an 8 out of 10 rating.

Their specific quotes about Redshift pleased me:

Redshift by Richard C. White is a Pulaski story. Although it hung on a structure of the Enterprise being attacked, this is another character piece and will please fans of the Data/Pulaski problem. The story also has the added benefit of humanising the good doctor; I often felt that in the show she was portrayed as a one dimensional character, so it's nice to have some insight into what was going on in her head.

*insert goofy grin here*

Almost makes up for that abysmal football game today. Thank God I didn't pay to watch it or I might be writing this from the local hoosegow.

I guess it's a good thing they're scheduled to cut that double door in the basement next week. Should help if the single doors become problematic to get through. ;-)

Very nice review - congrats!

I haven't read any ST fiction in quite some time, and in the same vein have not been active in ST-specific fandom in as long (despite being quite the Trekker, back in the day), so: what exactly is the "Data/Pulaski problem" the reviewer refers to?

It was like they were trying to make Pulaski into the 24th Century's version of McCoy. She hated transporters and really couldn't stand that people treated Data (a machine) like he was a real person. Only toward the end of the second season did she grudgingly admit that Data might be "acceptable".

One of her habits was to pronounce his name as Data (with a short a) versus Data (with the long a). She figured being a machine, it really didn't matter what she called him since he had no feelings to hurt.

Ah, that sounds familiar - scraping some of the rust off my remembrances of season 2. :) Thanks!
