I started rewatching Season 5 last week and I'm 5 episodes into it. Is it just me or was this a spectacular season? I rate all of these first 5 episodes as top notch. Redemption Part 2 wraps up the Gowron ascension to lead the Klingons very well. I liked how Sila accepted defeat to wait for another day. It also solidified my live for Worf as a character. He was a bit one dimensional in early seasons and the Klingon stories allowed him to develop more as a character. Not much needs to be said about Darmok. This was Picard at his best. Ensign Ro introduced Bajor and set the stage for DS9. It was good to see a more nuanced character in Ro. Some TNG characters can come across as a bit one dimensional. I especially liked how Picard skillfully handled Ro, seeing her strengths as well as her character defects. Silicon Avatar dealt well with the obsession of revenge and brought us more of Data's story. Disaster showed the crew, especially Picard, Troi and Worf, facing trying situations that pushed them to their limits. Yes one low point was making Troi, as often occurred, looked like a stereotypical weak woman who miraculously finds courage. I wish Troi had been handled much better in TNG, as she was in the recent Picard episode. But I did like how O'Brien and Ro were right there to try to help her as best they knew. Anyway, onward. Today I watch The Game.
