Trekathon 121: Too Short a Season (TNG)

There was a while there when I didn’t think this episode would ever end. Egads it dragged on.

And I’m still not really sure what the point was. Seeking youth is bad? Concealing things is bad? Arming terrorists is bad? Breaking the prime directive is bad? All we get through the episode is the crew (under) reacting to whatever the Admiral is doing, and his complicated backstory with the planet they’re sent to. But nobody cares – we’ve never heard of this guy before, no one on the crew has any personal connection to him. He shows up, becomes younger, dies.


121 down, 616 to go.
