S5E2 - Darmok

I selected this episode because it is simply one of the best TNG episodes. The story is an amazing sci-fi story that looks at language in a unique way. Ever since the invention of the Universal Translator in The Old Series, language is almost never a barrier. So it is fun to see what happens when th...

S4E26/S5E1 - Redemption

I selected this episode because it is another pivotal episode in Klingon Politics as well as another key Worf episode. In two episodes there is a lot going on here. We have a Klingon Civil war and the introduction of the Duras Sisters. Then we get the big reveal about Commander Sela and the call bac...

S4E20 - Qpid

I selected this episode because it's just a fun episode. The return of Q. The return of Vash. A very awkward moment between Crusher and Vash, watching Picard squirm. But really this episode comes down to one line, "I protest sir! I am not a merry man!" TNG has a lot of serious episodes and...

S4E12 - The Wounded

This episode was selected for it's introduction of the Cardassians and a closer look at the conflict between them and the Federation. It is also a good Miles O'Brien episode and helps to set a bit of background on Miles that will come up again in the future. Picard handles the Cardassians will true ...

Re: S3E16 - The Offspring

This episode is a case where the show tries to be more progressive than the society it is in and it shows. It's great that Lal is able to choose their gender, which is very progressive, but then only given two genders and that they won't be able to change it, is a sign of the time when it was writte...

Week 7: Episode List

Hello again. This week we continue into Season 5, which as I said last week, is what I think is peak TNG. This week's episodes are just as awesome. My biggest regret is that I cannot watch party all of these with you. At the end of the list, we will reach Season 6. We are going to start the week, wi...

S4E26 & S5E1 - Redemption Parts 1 and 2

I selected this episode because it is the culmination of a number of past episodes and is another crucial Worf episode. These episodes make a great end to Season 4 and opening to Season 5. Klingon politics are a fantastic mess. On one hand, there is the honor of warriors, but as we see that politici...

S4E23 - The Host

This episode introduces the Trill, who will become important later in DS9. This episode was fascinating for me, back when it aired. The idea of a multi-generational symbiont is what has made the Trill one of my favorite Star Trek Races. The idea of having past lives that are accessible, I think is f...
