My appreciation to Prax for inspiring me when he created the same titled thread in the TNG forum. We all know there are episodes everyone loves, and those everyone hates. We all have episodes that some may feel they are the only ones who appreciate them. And sometimes, there are episodes that are both underrated AND overrated. This thread is about that. "TERRA NOVA" - While I do agree it is NOT a great episode, I don't think it deserves the hatred it seems to get. We get to see a brand new human culture, something rarely seen in the franchise at this point. I thought it was interesting because of how it could very well be a 'what if' scenario for us. An asteroid hits the planet hard, releases deadly radiation, and the survivors all have to live underground for generations. I've always thought of this episode in those terms, not as 'shale'. When looked at through this lens, we might get more appreciation of this episode. Underrated episode... but not overly so. "REGENERATION" - When it first about to air, and I saw the trailer for it, my immediaye reaction wad likely the same as most others... WTF are the Borg doing here? But I have to give Berman and Braga credit... this episode made the Borh scary again, something I didn't think was possible after how VOYAGER defanged them. My only real gripe is that Phlox was able to unassimilate himself... I'd have preferred this subplot didn't happen at all. I'm not entirely sure if this episode is overrated or underrated, but it definitely deserves some love. "DAEDALUS" - Don't throw tomatoes at me yet. I never really liked this episode, and I never really will. But it DID give us a look at how horrible the costs were to bring transporter technology into existence. This really gives weight to the arguments that Dr. McCoy and Dr. Pulaski had about the use of this device, and by extension all people who have deathly fears of other modes of travel, such as flying. And while it IS on the bottom end of quality for season 4, at least it isn't THE worst one in a season that was just gold. Side note: I don't think it's a coincidence that the two writers of this episode, Ken LaZebnik amd Alan Brennert, were out after this episode. How about the rest of you? Any thoughts? Your own episodes that you feel get too much love or not enough? Please share!
