Re: Episode of the Week: Symbiosis
A suprisingly enjoyable episode that I had somehow decided was one of the bad ones. Yar's speech isn't nearly as preachy as I remember, she says that drugs feel good and are an escape from reality and then moralises about them - a balanced and factually correct speech. Picard's solution was obvious, some of the best solutions usually are.
Were these races ever revisited in Trek lit? An entire planet going cold-turkey would make one hell of a horror story.
One day soon, man is going to be able to harness incredible energies, energies that could ultimately hurl us to other worlds in... some sort of spaceship.
