Trekathon 195: Clues (TNG)

Unlike the previous episode, there was a pretty clever premise here – what if everybody lost a day, and just started to notice the little clues that showed things to be off.

The implementation doesn’t quite live up to the premise. The reveal is a bit too pedestrian, and the reaction to the xenophobic alien race is puzzlingly passive.

The thing that bugged me the most: the constant references to beard’s not growing. This sounds like something that was the bug bear of someone in the writers room when they were writing the episode.

195 down, 542 to go.
