Trekathon 157: The Ensigns of Command (TNG)

So the Enterprise has every imaginable type of scientist on board, but not even a single ensign with a legal background? That seems short sighted.[^1]

So we end up with the Enterprise command staff looking through the treaty text on their own, trying to find a loophole. Seems like a pretty bad idea to me.

Meanwhile, down on the planet Data gets caught up with an android fetishist. Oh, and learns a little something more about what it means to be human (no, not that – Tasha covered that back in season one).

Overall, not bad, not good.

157 down, 580 to go.

[^1]: And unrealistic. My understanding is that most sizeable warships in real life have a legal officer on board, so why not the Enterprise?
