A woman Picard once had a fling with is pissed he hasn’t told the entire ship about her, so she runs off with Q. Everyone wears tights and my favorite line reading ever is delivered by Worf: “Captain, I object! I am NOT a Merry Man!”
There’s a spy on board the Enterprise and ow… OW! Stop hitting me over the head with the Constitution and Nazi allegories!
Barclay becomes super smart and even creepier.
Geordi dresses for a rave on the Party Planet. I imagine Riker is the DJ. Doctor Buzzkill ruins everyone’s fun by making Geordi not turn in to Cousin Predator.
No one on the Enterprise can dream. Luckily, nothing in this story line will have any lasting consequences. The ghost of Neil Gaiman sends Troi cryptic messages. Also, Guinan is a badass.
I actually watched this while I had insomnia. Meta!
An eminent scientist deals with a creepy coworker crush. The Enterprise births a space whale. There’s… there’s no excuse for this.
Riker boldly goes where no man has gone before and gets him some Arkonian tail before that species even develops warp technology. James T. Kirk feels a great disturbance in the force.
Can I also just say that whole thing seriously creeped me out? I mean, it’s using sexual exploitation and blackmail and it’s supposed to be funny because the tables are turned and it’s a woman (Bebe Neuwirth!!!) forcing the man, but at its core, Riker is a hostage being forced to have sex for his freedom. It’s sexual violence.
The Enterprise goes through a minor wormhole. Everyone takes a nap. Picard abdicates his mission to “seek out new life and new civilizations” the moment he meets a new life that doesn’t wanna be met. “Hey, why don’t you screw with the essential rights of all beings aboard this ship by wiping their memories (TWICE) and altering computer records to look like we were never here?”
The devil went down to Ventax II and stole the Enterprise. I want to live in the future where velvet jumpsuits are totally acceptable.
Picard must stop Capt. Maxwell from wiping out the Kardashians, but frankly, I can’t believe that family survives until the 24th century.
