Trekathon 226: Cause and Effect (TNG)

Groundhog day with explosions. What’s not to love?

This episode could easily sound very dull on paper – after all, it consists of the same sequence of scenes four of five times, with only fairly minor changes along the way. But the direction and acting is flawless, and the writing is pretty good too.

Easily one of the five or so best episodes so far.

226 down, 511 to go. And with this episode there are now more minutes ‘Next Generation’ than all other Star Trek put together to date.
