Trekathon 218: New Ground (TNG)

April 14th, 2010

Worf has a sullen child. Yeah, that’s going to go well.

A sole parent dealing with their child’s abandonment issues is not exactly the stuff of great Star Trek episodes. Great Gilmore Girls episodes, sure. While it picked up in the back half, it’s still just not very interesting. Star Trek is about strange new worlds, not about kids throwing tantrums.

The B-plot is thoroughly forgettable – something about an experiment that nearly causes a disaster?

Still, I didn’t feel the need to run screaming from the room, and after the intro I was expecting to, so consider my expectations for this episode exceeded. Just.

218 down, 519 to go.
