Chain of Command, Part II! The famous one about four lights. It's widely considered one of the best Star Trek episodes of all time, but surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?) the NST crew has some dissenting opinions.

The Quality of Life! After a long hiatus, we're back! And this one's a doozy, what seems to be a remake of The Measure of a Man but this time with cute little robots with Kirby feet that are being made to perform slave labor.

The Sopranos! Arguably the show that started the entire "prestige era" of television. Does this pastiche of psychotherapy, Italian stereotypes, casual violence, and meta Hollywood commentary hold up 25 years later? We watch pilots of TV shows, old and new, and then ask, "Would You Stay Tuned?" New episodes... whenever! Find more stuff we do at http…

A Fistful of Datas! Like the producers were quick to point out, it's been three seasons since we've had a good ol' Holodeck mishap episode! So this time, why not delve into the Wild West?!

Schisms! Does it make sense to have an alien abduction story when you're already in space and hanging out with aliens 24/7? Does it make sense to have an episode where there's not much else to it other than the thinly veiled mystery? Does it make sense for an android to compose and recite dank-ass poetry about his cat? The answer to one of these qu…

A Tales of Two Cities! In 2011, a huge Star Trek mark by the name of Sam Hain really wanted to get his fan script produced. The wrinkle?

Honestly, a pretty great episode of TNG!…

Man Of The People! Deanna's getting her life force sucked out to sustain the calm mind of an empath ambassador who needs to negotiate peace between two warring factions.

Conundrum! Hey, who's that new guy over there? He's obviously not a regular member of the Enterprise crew. We're...we're all pointing at him, right?

New Ground! IT BROKE NEW GROUND! And by that we mean that Worf is finally having to be a father, for once.

Young Jonathan Frakes: https://fugitiveframes.com…

A Matter of Time! An episode so annoying and so bad that not even Robin Williams could've saved it, and not even the time travel plot could entice Ricardo! Wow, is it really that bad?

Ensign Ro! Well, Wesley's gone, and we need a new spunky low-ranking character that's constantly accused of committing war crimes. Why not Ro Laren?

A Klingon Challenge! Hey, I don't remember this episode of TNG. Why's the Enterprise empty? Why are they using non-Star Trek font? Why aren't they shooting this with film cameras?
