"Elementary, Dear Data" is a priceless episode for Sherlock's fans.
For me, who am also a Trekker and a Sherlockian, was a wonderful gift.
For start, we have Data as Sherlock and Geordi as Watson:
But isn’t just in the image. Data plays violin (an amazing theme that really reminds me the theme of Irene Adler in Sherlock, BBC) and made several citations to Holmes’s tales, books and aspects of personality and deduction.
But is not only it. In this episode, the computer of Enterprise have orders (from La Forge) for do a villain that have the capacity to beat Data.
Who is this villain? Nothing less than Professor Moriarty.
Yes, Moriarty. And being absolutely clever how Moriarty is, he, in very few time, have knowledge enough for threaten the Enterprise.
I fucking love this episode. And Picard looks so adorable in this clothes!
And people still ask me why I like Star Trek. In this episode, we have a crossover of Star Trek: TNG and Sherlock Holmes, and it’s canon.
I love this show.
