Star Trek TNG: S1 – Skin of Evil


A low budget Swamp Thing kills a member of the main cast and is a real jerk about it.

I’m definitely not just a seagull covered in crude oil and seaweed.

Memory Hole:

Yar bites it really early on in the episode. They use the drama of getting past those emotions to try to drive the remaining 30 minutes.

Also, how the hell did Tasha create HoloYar? Does everyone have one of these?

“I’ve created this scene from a Windows 98 desktop, to make Data feel more comfortable.”

The Quote:

Very good tin man.

The evil monster taunting Data. He even fucks with a blind man!

The creature is a schoolyard bully with bad skin.

Fiancé’s Favorite Moment:

Worf betting on Tasha in the upcoming Enterprise MMA competition.

Just don’t let Riker catch you in his “sad trombone” move.

Runner up: Troi getting a few good scenes trying to talk sense to the swamp creature.

Fiancé’s Verdict:

Yar was kind of annoying as portrayed, but her sexy playfulness will be missed.
