Talking about self-indulgence, Trek episodes and anything arty which is self-indulgent either tends to be great or shunned by critics and fans. A case in point is the progressive rock band Yes and their 1973 album Tales From Topographic Oceans. It has literally cleft Yes' fan base in two over that album, I personally love the album for Yes go over the edge so to speak
. So I guess self-indulgence sometimes pays off plus some brilliant ideas come of it...
I preferred it when Yes went Close To The Edge
