You know what, I just saw this episode on the big screen and was reminded about why I'm being turned off of the new movie as being Star Trek in name only. That episode is Measure of a Man, and now you and your friend can watch the extended cut (Assuming you're buying the blurays) together for the first time.
It seems like Star Trek is going the way of the action genre, and while that's fine, I think it's losing it's heart. MOAM is pretty much what I love what I see Star Trek, a topical issue that not only tells a great story, but allows people to think about it afterwards. The issue of "What is a Soul" is still being talked about in psychology classes (I know in mine we actually watched Blade Runner and talked about it from that question's point of view) today, and I found this episode as timely as ever.
