Answer:  Probably one of the greatest scenes in cinema.  Bold claim yes, but consider all that goes into this scene:

Patrick Stewart and Alfre Woodard are both incredible actors.  Herman Melville's book is a classic tail of obsession, revenge, and loss.  Star Trek represents a positive, righteous image of the future.  Put all those together and the emotional and cinematic energy is powerful.  I love this scene.

Okay, that's my dork post for the week.  Enjoy.

Also, ready Moby Dick.  It's a good book.



If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post.  Thanks for reading, and watching!
