The best episode of TNG - Part Six

Okay Trek fans, 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 before you eliminate another one. Not a very accurate way of determining the best episode, but a fun game nonetheless. Pretty simple. Enjoy!

Winners:
Season One - The Arsenal of Freedom
Season Two - The Measure of a Man
Season Three - The Best of Both Worlds (I)
Season Four - The Wounded
Season Five - Ensign Ro
Season Six -

Time's Arrow (II)
Realm of Fear
Man of the People
Relics
Schisms
True Q
Rascals
A Fistful of Datas
The Quality of Life
Chain of Command (I)
Chain of Command (II)
Ship in a Bottle
Aquiel
Face of the Enemy
Tapestry
Birthright (I)
Birthright (II)
Starship Mine
Lessons
The Chase
Frame of Mind
Suspicions
Rightful Heir
Second Chances

I'd say Aquiel. It doesn't work at all. The plot is silly, the guest actor plain bad, and the romance story is possibly even worse.

Removed Aquiel, and I'm going to take out Rascals. Extremely irritating. Kid who played Picard gave perhaps the most annoying performance I've ever seen, and once again TNG does a terrible job handling the Ferengi.

Removing: Man of the People
Reason: The best thing about this episode is Marina Sirtis' performance, which is surely the definition of damning with faint praise.

This is far and away the strongest season of TNG, as far as I'm concerned. This is going to be tough.

Time's Arrow (II)
Relics
Schisms
True Q
A Fistful of Datas
The Quality of Life
Chain of Command (I)
Chain of Command (II)
Ship in a Bottle
Face of the Enemy
Tapestry
Birthright (I)
Birthright (II)
Starship Mine
Lessons
The Chase
Frame of Mind
Suspicions
Rightful Heir
Second Chances
Timescape
Descent (I)

Taking out Realm of Fear - some interesting ideas and it's always nice to see Barclay again, but it's just a bit dull and plodding. Too much technobabble.

WTF?!? If you're going to remove a Q episode then surely the deeply dodgy True Q should be top of the list!

In which case, I'd best remove True Q because I don't want to live in a universe where it might continue on the list after the vastly superior Tapestry was eliminated.

Removing Fistful of Datas. Thought it was kind of a stupid episode, and "Ancient" west sounded way off. TNG didn't do comedy all that well.

I'll remove Suspicions. A rather dry who done it. Certainly one of the season's weaker episodes

"Time's Arrow (II)" gets the boot from me. It manages to be an extremely dull time travel story, and Samuel Clemens is just annoying.

I'll get rid of "The Quality of Life." It's a good episode, but a bit of a re-tread of ideas that had already been explored on the series by this point.

Reason: God only knows how it made it this far. It's just a dull, unimaginative episode whose ending can be predicted from the pre-titles sequence.
