Trekathon 119: Angel One (TNG)

February 22nd, 2010

It was pretty subtle, so you may have missed the message of the episode: “sexism is bad”.

When the B-plot about everyone on board the Enterprise getting the sniffles is the better half, it’s a pretty bad sign. But this episode is didactic, literal, sexist (even though it’s complaining about sexism). It’s a pretty strong contender for the worst episode I’ve seen.

The one great moment: La Forge is given command for the first time, and says “Make it so”. Lovely acting.

119 down, 618 to go.
