Trekathon 146: The Icarus Factor (TNG)

Urk. Star Trek goes full on soap opera. Riker resolves his conflicts with his father, while Worf’s friends help him come to terms with being the only Klingon on the ship.

The writing acting isn’t terrible, but the story is just dull as ditchwater. The final resolution is also silly: Riker is always going to stay with the ship. Traditionally speaking most military organisations react to turning down a promotion in a simple way: never offer another promotion.

146 down, 591 to go.
