Re: Insurrection as an episode...

Insurrection is just an alien of the week story, it's not even 2-parter worthy. TNG already did a forced relocation plot (more then once, actually) and needed only 45 minutes to do it.
A two parter needs to be an "event" (like mentioned up tread), a story that needs the extended run time to unfold. If we take out most of the action scenes (which they couldn't afford on a TV budget), how much running time would we actually be left with?

Actually, replace ’accidentally’ with ’repeatedly’ and replace ’dog’ with ’son.’
