The Inner Light puts me to sleep and The Visitor is only slightly stronger. I like my Trek to be entertaining first and foremost.
The Inner Light balances intelligent, imaginative sci-fi/fantasy and moving character drama perfectly. It's my ideal type of Trek.
It's my ideal sleeping pill. Forty-five minutes of me watching Picard watch a movie and Riker acting like a moron.
I'd much rather watch an episode that has a pulse. Things like The Royale
or Skin of Evil
or The Enemy
or Improbable Cause/The Die is Cast
or Homefront/Paradise Lost
or In the Pale Moonlight
or Basics I/II
or The Augment Trilogy
There is probably six hundred episodes of Trek that I'd rather watch.
