Trekathon 112: Lonely Among Us (TNG)

This episode was not off to a good start when Picard made a dig about Economics before the credits. The rest wasn’t as bad as the average of this season so far, it was more a problem of bumpy implementation this time.

The uselessness of Troi is becoming particularly apparent, when she can’t even tell when an alien being has taken over someone.

I’m also pretty concerned about Star Fleet regulations. Apparently even if it becomes clear that the captain of the ship has been possessed by an alien they still don’t seem to be able to do anything about it.

The B-plot, with aliens being transported to a peace conference, was a real waste of time. Ugly alien stereotypes and bad writing.

112 down, 625 to go.
