Meh. If that's good enough for you, fine, but it's not "great" much less "the greatest" anything.
The Enterprise facing a new unknown threat in an alien region is more my cuppa tea than Eric Bana growling and blowing up planets willy nilly for no real reason.
My fave TNG S1 eps are 11001001 and Conspiracy. Neither are true essentials though. It wasn't until S3 that TNG finally surpassed TOS in it's storytelling quality. Then DS9 came along and trumped both shows.
