Trekathon 143: Contagion (TNG)

March 11th, 2010

Personally I blame Enterprise Tech Support for the problems in this episode. Surely they would have come up with the final solution – “shut down and reboot” – quicker if they weren’t all drunk, or playing World of Borgcraft.

There’s a bit of stupidity going on here: it’s pretty obvious that there’s some kind of ‘alien contamination’ going on, but it’s more at the levels of ‘huh’ than ‘you blithering idiots. Overall, I’ll call this ‘good’ as well, for an unprecedented four in a row for TNG.

Great Star Trek moment: The very first “Tea, Earl Grey, Hot” from Picard.

143 down, 594 to go.
