The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

This is a game that was played here a couple of years ago, and it proved to be a lot of fun, spanning across each Trek series, as well as a great way to mentally revisit those episodes you may not have thought about in a while. With that in mind, why not play again?

So, here's the game. The basic idea is your standard elimination game. I'll provide a list of the episodes for each season and you need to eliminate your least favorite or the one you deem the 'worst.' Please provide an EXPLANATION for why you are eliminating your choice and be sure to copy and paste the list with your choice removed. Finally, leave at least 2 eliminations by other posters before you eliminate another episode. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Birthright II The only reason I liked part one was the DS9 crossover and Data's story. They dropped it completely in this one. And Shatner did the Klingon/Romulan colony thing much better in Ashes From Eden

Dropping Aquiel... just a boring episode, even if it is hilarious how Geordi blunders yet again with all women. Though I say even he can do better than her.

Weird... I'm finding it hard to pick one here, not because they're all great, or terrible, but that they're all somewhat equal. It was mostly between Realm of Fear or Suspicions. I think I'll shoot down Suspicions. Beverly doesn't hold this episode together very well. It's not awful, but I dislike it more than the others

I'm knocking True Q out. I was never a great fan of this installment, and I find Amanda awfully twee.

Knocking out Rascals... let's turn the crew into kids, have Ferengi take over the Enterprise with stock footage, then have the kids save the day... what an awesome episode.... no.

I have to knock off A Fistful of Datas. The episode was okay but Data sounded like Bob Wheeler from Night Court.

Going to have to ditch "Ship in a Bottle" I've never cared for the Holmes episodes, and this one is no exception.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

Incidentally, Ship in a Bottle won season six last time this game was played.

I'm booting Time's Arrow (II), never been a fan of that two parter or Samuel Clemens.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

Weird, I always considered season 6 a weaker season than 3-5, but I'm finding it hard to knock an episode off. These are all decent episodes.

I vote Chain of Command (I). I haven't seen this in a while, but it felt like the whole episode was Riker bitching about Jellico, and Picard/Crusher/Worf fumbling through caves. Part 2 was a much better episode.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

Birthright was a terrible two-parter, happy to wipe it off.
The second part was unbelievably boring and the first part...well, what was it even about? I forget...some dream crap and Worf stuff. Also if they were gonna go to DS9 for the only time in the show, couldn't they do something a bit more exciting?

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

I'm removing Rightful Heir. The story is just unbelievably ridiculous. And you'd think that a clone of Kahless serving as the figurehead emperor would have some lasting repercussions in the Empire, but he got one throwaway mention in a later episode and was never seen or heard from again.
