TheHopeDiamond: I remember that premiere like it was yesterday.

(geekness follows)

It was our D&D night, but everyone else except me was a hardcore Trek fan. I grudgingly agreed to suspend play to watch the first episode.

By the time Troi got to feeling "GREAT SORRRROOOOWWW" I had caused such a ruckus with my insults and giggling at how bad it was that I got banished to the kitchen until it was over.

Watched every episode with my dad when it came on new every week 1987-1994...... He was sooooo excited about it and talking about it all the time before the premiere. He watched every new episode of the original series when it came on too. And unlike many, many people at the time, gave TNG a chance to be as good as/eclipse TOS. He likes TNG more to this day...... We debate about it and quote episodes all the time. Now when we catch it on re-runs, we try to beat each other to name the episode and plot when it starts on the TV.

/lucky for me he is still around

i'll always love that

The All-Powerful Atheismo: addy2: "Congratulations, you are fully dilated to ten centimeters. You may now give birth."

Best line of the series.


You must talk to him. Tell him he's a good cat. And a pretty cat.

I'm gonna vote for "Commander, tell me about your sexual organs."

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.

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.

Also, Quark's speech about Root Beer.

Measure of a Man was brilliant. When Picard was trying to figure out how to make his case, and you the viewer is agonizing over how he was going to succeed, and he's sitting there talking to Guinan, and she says, almost casually, "Every civilization has its throwaway race..."

and it hits you, like Colonel Kurtze's "diamond bullet to the forehead" that what was really at stake here was Starfleet was actually, though inadvertently, about to invent a slave race. That was a mindblowing moment, and instantly crystallized the entire episode.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: buntz: Oh, and that one time Worf's son played a cowboy

Hey, that one was awesome.

Tough call : Alexander as an annoying lil' pardner versus Data spitting into a potted plant and calling his cat a "varmint".

Then there's Worf's reaction to the Data-faced saloon madam coming after him in the end.

While The Next Generation was a great series, a better series premiered on NBC just one year before TNG ended it's run. This time, however, instead of unrealistically being set in outer space, the developers of this new show decided to go a bit more familiar and gave us a show set in the near future, but instead of a spaceship, our heroes were serving mankind from the depths of the ocean in their super-submarine, the seaQuest DSV.

They were able to create an entertaining program that not only used state of the art special effects, but they were able to do so while giving us a glimpse into the lives of a very lovable, and real band of characters. Captain Bridger was living every naval officer's dream of being in charge of the very vessel that he designed. Lucas was a role model to every teenage boy in America that loved computers. He was a computer genius who became the head science officer on the seaQuest. Every character on that show was someone that most American people could relate to.

My top 5 favorite episodes are:
1. Games
2. The Devil's Window
3. Whale Song
4. Hide and Seek
5. Vapors

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Mugato: Pretty good list. Except Darmok.

you're farking fired. From this thread.

I'm sorry, I get the point of the episode, it just didn't make any sense.

But then I think DS9 is the best overall series so what do I know.

The one with Max Headroom playing a con man from Cleveland is pretty good, too.
