Star Trek
« on: January 24, 2010, 12:08:37 PM »

Something possessed me to torrent the entirety of TNG, and I've been bouncing back and forth through them as they come in fully.

I really can't comment too much, but I guess with the new game in beta that seems to be awful, the topic might be worth visiting.

Which episode is BEST EPISODE?

I submit that it's All Good Things, the TNG finale.

I forgot the episode name, but it's the episode where the Enterprise hits some space turbulence and almost explodes in like 5 different ways. It illustrates how the best ship ever is still a huge deathtrap.

Oh, I know the one you mean.  Picard's trapped in a turbo lift with a bunch of kids, or something, right?

I just watched that episode about half an hour ago.  Disaster.

It's the same episode where Keiko gives birth with Worf as the midwife.  :lol:

Which one was that, again?  I haven't actually seen an episode of TNG in ages.

The Groundhog Day episode is a personal favorite of mine.

Re: favorite episodes

Fifteen years ago, I would have said Relics.
Ten years ago, I would have said The Measure of a Man.
Five years ago, The Drumhead.
Today, Tapestry.

Ohhhh, right, THAT one.

I dont' think I could name a favorite TNG episode.  I don't remember it all that well.

Those are all pretty cool choices, Buge.

The DS9 episode with Q was one of my favorite Q episodes.

Giant mustaches, fisticuffs, and the best line ever.

"YOU PUNCHED ME!  Picard never punched me!"

"I'm. Not. Picard."

Clearly, Benji.  Clearly.

WARNING YOUR POST BLAH BLAH BLAH

Yeah, Kabbage.  Yesterday's Enterprise was pretty rad.  It also set up the appearance of Tasha's Romulan daughter, which I thought was cool.

Sucks about Tasha.  I remember reading that she felt that her character wasn't good for much besides "Hailing frequencies open", and got fucked off in the most abrupt and crummy manner possible, like she was just some redshirt.

I remember reading that she had a conversation with Worf in the beginning of one episode, which led her to comment that if she'd actually had more moments like that one she would've stuck around.

I know a hell of a lot more about DS9 than I do TNG though.

It's probably not the OMG BEST EPISODE!, but I always had a soft spot for Hugh ("I, Borg").

Oh yes, and in the other series':

Conscience of the King for TOS. I love this one. It puts Kirk into a moral dilemma, and not the kind of dilemma that later serieses would go for, like 'to save these simple villagers we must reveal our technology,' but it is a problem close to him. The governor who killed half a colony on which Kirk lived is on the Enterprise at Kirk's mercy (or so he believes). Never mind that eyewitnesses are dying left and right. Never mind that the #1 suspect is an old man with a failing memory and a cute daughter. Kirk's the law in the Final Frontier™, just as Kodos was. Whatever choices he makes, he's got to live with.

In the Pale Moonlight
for DS9. Same deal. Sisko's got a hard decision to make and he has to live with it. Also, Garak. This one is a little different, mostly because it's international intrigue stuff, but also because during TNG era Trek, the Federation society was painted as a utopia, and it was refreshing to see someone of that utopian society actually get blood on their hands. Also, Garak.

6x15 Tapestry
6x25 Timescape
5x18 Cause and Effect

Also, pretty much any episode with "Time" or "Q" in the title.
