Sometimes it's hard to decide who the main character of an episode is. The main character is the one who goes through a transformative arc. He's the one who makes decisions that move the plot, solves the problem and even, initially, cause the problem. He probably has the most screen time. He's the one in principle opposition to the bad guy, the bad force, society, whatever. Often, it's easy to determine to whom an episode belongs. Remember Me is Beverly Crusher's. The Game is Wesley Crusher's. Future Imperfect is William Riker's. Captain's Holiday is Picard's. Other times, it's not so easy to determine. What about an episode like The Measure of a Man? Is this a Picard episode or a Data episode? Or is it someone else's? And if it's a shared episode, who is the senior partner? Picard handles Data's defense. He is the one who moves the plot late in the game. But Data is the one who moves it early on with his decision to oppose his enslavement. But it's Picard who undergoes the character arc, at first being irritated by Data's truculence but then coming to see things his way. But it's Data that the story truly centers around. Without Picard, someone else handles Data's defense. Without Data, we just move on to the next episode. It seems like a good candidate for a shared episode. But if you had to pick between the two, who would it be? Is The Measure of a Man Data's episode, or is it Picard's? Or have I got it all wrong and it's really someone else's?
