Trekathon 154: Peak Performance (TNG)

Sharing your episode title with the subject line of spam I’ve received recently isn’t a good start.

Still, I thought this episode was very good up until the Ferengi turn up. That was enough to push the episode from ‘very good’ to ‘good’, but even the Ferengi weren’t as awful as previously here.

Overall the back half of Season 2 has been pretty good.

Aside: A bad Star Trek habit is the monoculture: all Klingon’s are warriors, all Zakdorn’s are brilliant strategists, and so on. It’s a lot easier to write, but it doesn’t feel very real.

154 down, 583 to go.
