Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season One

It's good because of the effects and the abandon ship sequence. Aside from that, I agree.

The episode is Where No One Has Gone Before. Political correctness, dontchaknow.
No error, that's the name of the episode, is it not?

I loved both "Heart of Glory" and "11001001" so I'd have had no problem with either episode winning. I'll get season two started momentarily.

It's not a great shock that "Heart of Glory" won.

That's the correct title, but throughout most of the list, it was called Where No Man Has Gone Before. Only the TOS episode had that name.

You're right! My mistake.

It's also my choice. Of the four that's left, it's the one I like the least. It's a great episode aside from the Roddenberry wankfest. So the character with his namesake is now a Mozart, going beyond space and time. Wonderful.

What gets them out of this mess is collective happy thoughts? This isn't Neverland.

Ignoring the Wesley stuff, Where No One Has Gone Before is my favorite TNG episode of all time. I was hoping it would survive to the end. I felt this episode more than any other in the entire series stayed true to what Star Trek was all about.

The Last Outpost wasn't that bad. It feels like a TOS'ish episode. We'll Always Have Paris was pretty good too, even if the MILF was wearing pyjamas the entire episode. They got the cut way too soon.

Justice was grating, but I liked the super god station in orbit. Reminded me of those light beings in the original Battlestar Galactica (the 78 series). It was cool seeing the same model again in Conundrum. I agree the rest was gag inducing, like "They make love at the drop of a hat. Any. Hat. Sir." Yeck! sounds like Roddenberry fanwank dribble.

The only 2 things memorable in Heart of Glory were the "Geordi" vision, and the Klingons building disruptors out of their shoes and belts buckles.

I'm doing great, Seven of Five! A lot changes in two years, but I'm glad to see you're still around!
Just about floating around. I work full time these days and I'm a bit busier in my free time. This real life business really eats into my procrastination.

The Neutral Zone.

So it was about 20th century people woken up from cryostasis, but it was also about the introduction to Romulans (and a hint at what became the Borg). I still can't tell which was the A-plot and which was the B-plot. Early TNG sure had a knack for ruining alien introductions - first the Ferengi, now the Romulans. The stereotypical Southern guy and the stereotypical Wall Street fat cat were grating. Why did this subplot even need to exist?

Obviously to show how disgustingly inhuman the TNG crew are.

CRUSHER:"People feared dying. It terrified them"

Yes Beverly, I've seen how far you've all come in overcoming *that*.

PICARD: "Well, they're alive now. We're going to have to treat them as living human beings. "

Darn.
That was the main problem I had with this episode. This episode almost turn me off TNG all together. I just didn't the way the crew was disrespecting these people. Made almost feel sorry for the Wall Street guy who sort of help them out when he notice that the Romulans were lying.
I wished insted of having that Redneck country singer, they should of had a Ozzy Osbourne or Steven Tyler type rocker. That would have been interesting.
