Re: Episode of the Week: 2x11 "Contagion"

I really like this one, I'm no computer expert but I suspect the logic of the "turn everything off, turn it on again" ending doesn't stand up to real world scrutiny, but the episode rockets along at such a pace it doesn't really matter.

Indeed, compared to a lot of TNG this episode really does pack a lot of plot and ideas in at a fast pace, you go from a mystery about an exploding ship to a lost alien civilisation through the posturing against the Romulans and the Enterprise starting to break down. You could quite easily do an entire episode about each of those ideas (and I think just about each one of them would) but here they're just a part of a surprisingly dense action story.
