The episode that hates women.

For starters, two of the three main female characters from Season One are now gone leaving Troi the only main reoccurring female character of the show.
There were just two main female characters by the end of season one. There are three now (Guinan, Pulaski and Troi).

Incase you need a reminder, she's the only main cast member who doesn't wear a uniform.
Granted. I much preferred it when they gave her a uniform. Seemed more professional.

But the episode tries to sweep this under the rug by giving all the guys promotions which results in them taking over positions that at first were manned by female characters. We're already off to a great start.
The only person that got a promotion was Geordi, to full lieutenant.

Also, Troi gets raped. I'm sorry, but that's what happens here.
I don't think anyone has ever denied this but the way the writers deal with that event is what should be judged. As previously mentioned, I feel they went with a very "pro-choice" stance.

I'm sorry, I really don't get where you're coming from with this one.
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.
