Trekathon 157: The Ensigns of Command (TNG)

March 17th, 2010

So the Enterprise has every imaginable type of scientist on board, but not even a single ensign with a legal background? That seems short sighted.1

So we end up with the Enterprise command staff looking through the treaty text on their own, trying to find a loophole. Seems like a pretty bad idea to me.

Meanwhile, down on the planet Data gets caught up with an android fetishist. Oh, and learns a little something more about what it means to be human (no, not that – Tasha covered that back in season one).

Overall, not bad, not good.

157 down, 580 to go.


  1. And unrealistic. My understanding is that most sizeable warships in real life have a legal officer on board, so why not the Enterprise?
