NeoCortex42: Mugato: NeoCortex42: Mugato: There should be a "worst of" list too. Anyone remember "Masks"?

That was one of the "Hey, let's give Brent Spiner a chance to chew some scenery" episodes.

See also: any other episode where Data is possessed or Lore shows up.

And the movie Generations. They dropped the "emotion chip" plot device after that.

Yet still managed to find a way to make him sing showtunes:

Mugato: DamnYankees: My top seven, off the top of my head:

7) ...All Good Things
6) Darmok
5) Yesterday's Enterprise
4) Cause and Effect
3) Tapestry
2) The Inner Light
1) The Defector

I can be argued.


Pretty good list. Except Darmok. That episode just didn't make any sense at all. A lot of correspondence with my friends are just references to pop culture too but they're still eventually rooted in regular language.

There should be a "worst of" list too. Anyone remember "Masks"?

The best episode was when Crusher fell in love with a Scottish ghost who had screwed a number of her female ancestors and then it turned out she was just farking a candle the whole time.

>>> I don't know, I think the Space Jews/Ferengi were also pretty bad.

They at least got redeemed a lot over the course of DS9.

Redemption?

I can't hate this episode because of one line - "I am not a merry man!"

i'll always love that

Mugato: KingoftheCheese: And yes, the Borg were a race, or a species, or whatever you want to call them. The bottom line is that they were an intelligent life form. Killing them would have been immoral, even if they were evil.

They were a collection of victims. Assimilated against their will with everything that they were destroyed. How is that a race?


Yes, but how many of them, as drones, still identified with their original race? None. "We are the Borg", not "We are a bunch of Klingons, Humans, Bolians, etc. that have been assimilated..."

The fact remains that even if they did not choose to be, they were all Borg and they made up a unique collective of people. That is a race.

I'm thinking there's some Trekkies out there that need their own personal Level 1 containment field to keep them in their parents' basement.

The callback to this when Keiko goes into labor on DS9 was great. Worf gets a scared shiatless expression on his face and runs away as quickly as possible.

Wyalt Derp: Mugato: There should be a "worst of" list too.

Any episode with Q or Troi's mother.


Q episodes aren't bad, but they are wildly inconsistent. "Tapestry" is quite good (though one could argue that it wasn't really Q at all, and it was all Picard's near-death hallucination).

/Of course, John de Lancie's Discord is more malevolent than Q ever was, despite being in a kids' cartoon.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: BumpInTheNight: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Mugato: The All-Powerful Atheismo: The English Major:
The Borg were awful from the beginning

Deep thoughts by TEM

I think the Borg were the best possible villains in the Trek universe. Sure, they can't be bargained with or reasoned with, we've seen that before. But they didn't just want to destroy you, they want to enslave you, turn you into them. That's both our biggest fear and at the same time, something that can be turned around on us. Like the guy in DS9 who joined the Maqui and compared the Federation to the Borg.

Voyager screwed them up, but the Borg WERE awesome.

I think Trek needed another villain that wasn't mindless like the Borg, but was more human, and pure evil.

Lore?

No I mean a race. Lore, as evil as he was, was little more than a nuisance threatening just the ship. I mean in more of a DS9 context, an entire race of evil that actually threatened the whole federation; like the founders, but worse.


The writers from season 1?

swahnhennessy: Pretty standard "best-of" list for TNG, though they're trying to troll us by replacing "Tapestry" with "Phantasms".


Yeah, but it has one of the funniest moments in the series.

Data: It's a cellular peptide cake

Worf (mouth full): With mint frosting!

I'd remove Phantasms and replace that with Tapestry, but otherwise I'm fine with the list. I honestly think The Inner Light is the best TNG episode, but I'm willing at accept any arguments for Best of Both Worlds and Chain of Command. No episode tops those three, well technically five, episodes. Tapestry, ..All Good Things, Yesterday's Enterprise and Measure of a Man are fantastic, but just can't match the others.
