Trekathon 150: Up the Long Ladder (TNG)

March 13th, 2010

Oh dear, it’s comedy Irish accents.

There’s probably a good funny episode to be written with the Enterprise transporting a primitive colony, but it’s not this one.

There’s a much more interesting story in the second half of the episode, when Riker and Pulaski get into a ‘right to choose’ argument. Probably one of the better abortion-proxy stories that has been done. But it only lasts for a few minutes before we’re back into the comedy irish accents, and the forced assimilation of two cultures.

So where was their right to choose, hey?

150 down, 587 to go.
