"The Perfect Mate" (TNG)
TNG: Hollow Pursuits, streamed on Netflix.
Dwight Schultz really hit it out of the park in this episode, creating a memorable and popular recurring character in Reg Barclay that could have just as easily been a one-off had it been given to another actor.
Wish he would have been a one off. The character never fit the mold of a 24th century Starfleet officer. How exactly did he survive all those years in Starfleet with crippling anxiety and no medical professional noticing?
Though the character was the first signs the writers were trying to move away from the "Roddenberry Vision".
"The Squire of Gothos" TOS
I see your point, but to me, Barclay was a much more realistic and believable character than most of the usual one-offs that we saw in TNG, and I found that refreshing. The future will still have weird people, despite what Gene may have thought.
My last watchthrough was DS9, so What We Leave Behind.
Barcalay was a very well written character but Dwight Schultz was not a particularly good actor. His style fit his role in TNG rather well but you can see in Stargate's 'Gamekeeper' how limited he actually is.
DS9: The Way of the Warrior. I really enjoyed this one, great stuff.
The Emissary was the last episode I completed. A good episode. I remember having a nice sized crush on K'Ehleyr. Loved it when she popped up in Voyager as well.
Nope. It was the normal speed.
Hey, I recorded TATV the night it first aired using my old-fogy iMac and an EyeTV PVR. I guess I thought it would be a timeless classic--I still have the Video CD I made of the recording.
TOS: Spock's Brain, streamed on Netflix.
Far Beyond the Stars (DS9 "Captain's Log" Fan Collective DVD).
DS9: The Visitor
ENT: Broken Bow, parts 1 and 2, streamed on Netflix.
Except for the gratuitous, borderline pornographic decon-chamber scene with T'Pol and Trip, this was a good series premiere, much more enjoyable than Encounter at Farpoint.
The last hour of The Wrath of Khan, streamed on Netflix.
Summer, 1982: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
ENT: Fight or Flight, streamed on Netflix.
Pigged out today. After watching the third Star Trek Continues episode (Fairest of Them All), which I quite liked, I decided to watch both episodes of Enterprise's In a Mirror, Darkly.
I'm not a great fan of Enterprise, but I did think that they had an interesting take on the mirror universe idea. Loved the opening scene... darkly.
Images in the Sand on DVD.
TNG "The Inner Light"
ENT: Strange New World, Unexpected and Terra Nova, streamed on Netflix.
