Trekathon 212: Disaster (TNG)

April 13th, 2010

Let’s count the disaster movie cliches! There’s the Captain trapped in a lift with children, the pregnant woman who goes into labour, a broken ankle, the inexperienced commander.

But then there’s some unique Star Trek moments: even with only three people left on the bridge, the rest of the ship cut off, and an imminent warp core breach, they still use the conference room for a meeting.

I wouldn’t call this a good episode by any stretch, but it made me laugh in places (it is 6am, though), so I wouldn’t call it bad either. If I had to, I’d rather watch this again than the previous episode.

212 down, 525 to go.
