Star Trek TNG: S1 – Symbiosis

Recap:

The crew gets embroiled in a property dispute between drug addled space hillbillies and aryan miami vice extras.

Space Don Johnson look pretty good for having died in Wrath of Khan.

Memory Hole:

They weren’t getting the best extras this season.

Left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot.

The Quote:

Drugs can make you feel good.

Yar giving Wes a 5 minute long “don’t do drugs” lecture.

Fiancé’s Favorite Moment:

Riker getting freeze tagged.

“Your nipples may tingle for a few weeks afterwards. You’re welcome.”

Fiancé’s Verdict:

Drugs are bad. Don’t do drugs kids.

Star Trek TNG: S1 – Arsenal of Freedom

Recap:

The Enterprise tracks some missing Federation crew down to Target Practice Planet. Crusher breaks a leg, Geordi takes control, and Picard has to sit through a presentation about a timeshare.

The episode far exceeds the standard phaser fire quotient.

Memory Hole:

The underutilization of Troi creeps in. She gives meaningful looks for like 10 minutes before she has a line. Some episodes she’s mysteriously “away at a conference”. She must have an awesome lanyard collection to go with her scarves.

Seriously you guys?

The Quote:

What’s the armament on the Lollipop?

Don’t fuck with the Candyland Crew.

Fiancé’s Favorite Moment:

The cavern sequence with Picard and Crusher. Some of the best acting in the series so far.

Anyone have any Neosporin?

Fiancé’s Verdict:

Some good life lessons for being a good person/leader.

Star Trek TNG: S1 – Heart of Glory

Recap:

A klash of kultures as two klingons with K names make fun of Worf, scream to the heavens, and ask innocent questions about ship security protocols.

In a Klingon acapella group, there is only honor if you’re a baritone.

Memory Hole:

Seeing Geordi vision for the first time was fun. It didn’t actually fit into the episode at all, but it was entertaining time filler.

The Quote:

I’m dying, can you just leave me alone and not mess with my eyes?

Seriously. This is really unsettling.

Fiancé’s Favorite Moments:

Picard being distractingly interested in Geordi’s visor.

Geordi sees the world as one big scrambled porn shoot.

And Worf making new friends. And then killing them.

Fiancé’s Verdict:

The true battle is within.

Wait what?

Star Trek TNG: S1 – Coming of Age

Recap:

The Enterprise gets a surprise white glove inspection while Wesley makes friends with a space bro that vapes.

“I can do 2 and a half Blues Traveler songs on my vape harmonica. Wanna hear?”

Memory Hole:

The episode should be titled “Everyone hates Remmick”. He turns the dickishness up to 11, which does not help him in his task to get to the bottom of “troubles on the Enterprise”.

Who me?

The Quote:

Acceptable or not, it is the truth.

Data lays down the law right in Remmick’s face.

Fiancé’s Favorite Moment:

Wesley going aggro.

“Fucking say that Gobots were better than Transformers one more god damned time!”

Fiancé’s Verdict:

Nice to see them as a family. And now she actually likes Picard for the first time.
