Hahah the punchline to at least 2 episodes every season.

And, spoliers and all, but this is the single most important episode to watch to prep for the Picard series, hands-down.

Re: S2E8 - A Matter of Honor

Heh, yeah, I'm feeling pretty smug about coming up with that.

Re: S3E15 - Yesterday's Enterprise

Holy shit this episode is so, so good. Nothing much to add, except this is also quietly a really pretty great Wesley episode. He's a soldier with none of the hesitation or self-doubt Wesley walks around with in evidence, but also completely drained of any joy or wonder that we associate strongly wit...

Re: S3E13 - Deja Q

I quite like this episode, especially, as noted, for the Guinan stuff. One place where the entire thing always comes screeching to a halt for me is, and anyone younger than about 40, bear with me, is the ending where for some unknown, Godawful reason, a mugging, unfunny, ham-handed Corbin Bernsen ma...

Re: S2E9 - The Measure of A Man

This episode is so, so good. "Starfleet was formed to seek out new life. WELL, THERE IT SITS!" I can't even type that without choking up forget watching it, it's waterworks every time I see it. The way Data doesn't celebrate or cheer the way a person would but calmly stands and then polite...

Re: S2E20 - The Emissary

Meh, Klingons. Here to remind everyone that Suzie Plakson played the Vulcan doctor Lt. Selar in an earlier episode, The Schizoid Man and she is smoking hot, like pon-far is early this year hot. Like, 25 years later I remember her half dozen lines and the exact angle of her eyebrow when she sardonica...

Re: S2E8 - A Matter of Honor

I'm no record as finding the whole Klingon project overwrought and tedious. That said, this is my favorite of the Klingon-featuring episodes. I do enjoy Riker positioned as the Anthony Bourdain of Starfleet. And yeah, seriously, if you want us to like a new character, don't make her a massive, unrep...

Re: S2E16 - Q Who

Heh, [mention]pksullivan[/mention] because I am always thinking about gaming as I watch, the baby thing also jumped out at me "Welp, there's another thing that's an easy shorthand for 'here be monsters' that would get X-Carded in a game." I remember at the time just being totally fascinate...

Re: S2E3 - Elementary, Dear Data

This is one of the early examples where they hint at the idea that Worf despite his grumpiness about it actually kind of digs playing dress-up and exploring the human cultural heritage that comes down from his foster parents. This another of those things that starts as kind of a throwaway but gradua...

Re: S1E1 - Encounter at Farpoint

I think it's worth noting that in this episode, they very casually and without fanfare put a black man in the command chair of the Enterprise . I have absolutely no recollection at the time whether it went commented upon among fandom (this was pre-internet discourse, imagine that) but I cannot imagi...
