Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

I feel bad but I'm booting Face of the Enemy. I generally like Troi episodes and thought it was a good concept but I thought the Romulans were astonishingly foolish. I mean, Troi was a bad choice - she has a Betazoid accent (possibly, could never wor hat out. But no Romulan has that accent) and the Betazoid black eyes which they left when they changed her face. Also, after the initial shock of looking like a Romulan, she barely protests that she's been kidnapped, drugged, had her face changed and is being forced to impersonate a Romulan.

Descent (I) The season-ending cliffhangers dipped in quality each time. BOBW was excellent, Redemption was great, Time's Arrow was OK, and Descent was ho-hum. Once again, the Borg are downgraded into just another alien race, and Data spends the whole episode confused. And once again, Lore plays Data for a sucker (more of that in Part 2).

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

I'm going to drop "Realm of Fear", seriously biting worm things in the transporter stream? even though you're broken into atoms and cannot perceive anything (which would require your brain and sensory organs to be assembled), and thus you and the "worms" should just be bits in a matter stream.

Some really good episodes left. I'll get rid of Starship Mine just because the others are better.

I'll be the one to do it. Relics, take away Scotty and you have a rather mundane and pointless episode.

Re: The least disliked episode of TNG - Season Six

"Schisms" is out. It was a nice idea, but not all that well executed, also while fun for camp value, having literal Bug Eyed Monsters could be considered a little much.

Now we're down the meat of the season, and I find it getting pretty hard to eliminate those left:

Timescape.

Typical Brannon Braga. Enterprise encounters a time-space phenomenon, and eventually the Enterprise explodes (2nd of 4 episodes and one movie of his where that happens).

When we see the Enterprise frozen, there's a giant green scar on the lower saucer from weapons fire. When the time is restored, the saucer is fine, yet the bridge consoles in the back are still scarred. That continuity flub has bugged me for years.

This is my favorite TNG moment, however:

Some great episodes left but I'll eliminate The Chase. The other episodes are better and there is a lot of suspension of belief (Or is it suspension of disbelief, I get both phrases confused) at the end.

Ok, I'm going to get rid of "Frame of Mind" which leaves one classic episode and the other has more re-watch value.

Man oh man... now it's down to two showcases for Patrick Stewart's dramatic acting skills, this is really tough...

I'll eliminate Chain of Command (II). Great performances from Stewart and the guest stars, but the Riker's insubordination is too much. Also the torture scenes are hard to rewatch.
