Week 5: Episode List

This week, we will finish off Season 4 and start Season 5. You might wonder why Redemption, the season finale is not on our watch party, but that is because one of the best Season 5 episodes is S5E2, and that is a must for the Watch Party. This week will get a look at two new species, one that will ...

E4S7 - Reunion

I selected this episode as it has very large impact to the Star Trek universe that spans both TNG and DS9. It also introduces two minor characters who will appear throughout TNG and even make appearances in DS9. Wow. I remember watching this episode when it aired and being blown away at how intense ...

Re: S4E2 Family

This episode was selected because we see the more personal sides of a number of characters. For Picard, I like that they extended the trauma from Best of Both Worlds, and we see his healing in his own Sector 0.0.1; home. We also see that his older brother had to live in Picard's shadow. But for me, ...

S3E26 - S4E1 - Best of Both Worlds (Part 1 and 2)

I selected this pair of episodes because it is one of the most important Picard stories in the series. This 2-part episode also brings back the Borg, who we will encounter a few more times in this series, but have a much larger role in Voyager. This episode has a lot going on in it. I will touch on ...

Welcome to Week 4. This week we start Season 4. But unlike past weeks, it will take us two weeks to get through Season 4 as there are so many good episodes in this season. Here is the list: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3e0f5UYLVuBoHxGJp361_LA96X72WZYbOLo4GrbRZu1G6rWgCH57RM4b30iuucpUPH4z...

S3E22 - the Most Toys

I selected this episode because it is a great Data episode. This episode explores parts of Data's personality as he is captured and under duress. The facial acting by Spiner in this is great. He conveys so much with his looks and face. For me, this episode is all about the climax. The transporter sc...

S3E19 - Captain's Holiday

This episode was selected primarily for the introduction of Vash, secondarily it introduces the planet Risa. As episodes go, this one is pretty average for me. I liked it well enough, but it does not make any of my lists for story or plot. It really is one that is needed to set up other episodes. It...

Re: S3 E18 - Allegiance

This episode is selected for two things. First, it is often considered a solid Picard episode, as the A-plot focuses on him and the other prisoners. Part of the list is to showcase different characters. Second, this is the first time we see some indication of Crusher's attraction to Picard, as the P...
