Just watched The Battle
, and that's another one that's better than I remembered. Although as in other first season episodes, the crew seems awfully slow to figure things out. Picard spends the whole episode nearly dying from severe headaches (which apparently no one gets anymore), and yet it takes them forever to make a connection to the Ferengi.
And it's a shame they spend the whole episode building up to Picard attacking the Enterprise with the Stargazer, yet don't have any actual battle. Basically just a standoff, and then the "Picard Maneuver" (which doesn't really amount to much).
