Trekathon 202: The Drumhead (TNG)

April 7th, 2010

This week the Star Trek travelling players present The Crucible.

No? Really? But it seemed just like it – people being accused with no evidence, thinly veiled references to the McCarthy hearings in the 1950s, impassioned speeches about freedom and rights?

So it’s not exactly new territory, but it is really well done. As I mentioned about 60 episodes ago, I kinda like courtroom scenes. It’s done well here, and I really do like the tricky they pull with the warp core incident – it really was an accident, no conspiracy involved.

202 down, 535 to go.
