the DS9 where Sisko gets bonked on the head and thinks he's a golden age scifi writer is really good, and everyone is a much better actor without pounds of makeup.

all my favourite tng episodes are in the sixth season. very convenient for dling.
realm of fear - lol barclayschism - tng xfiles, crew members get abducted and vivisected by hooded aliens from another dimensionchain of command - ninja picard gets tortured by david warner, 'there are four lights!!'ship in a bottle - professor moriarty rules the enterprise from the holodeckstarship mine - picard IS john mcclane, beats up tuvoktimescape -
that leaves only the groundhog day episode (s05, cause and effect) and the lolcutus 2x episode (no idea what season that was in).

All good episodes, I'd also include Darmok and The Inner Light from s5, too excellent Picard-centred eps.
Also Sarek from s3 - a pretty uneventful episode for the most part, until two very dramatic and haunting scenes in the last 10 minutes.

The Inner Light aka picard learns the nose flute.

Saw TNG S3 ep "The Hunted", about the Enterprise capturing and attempting to return a genetically modified super soldier to his home planet. The scenes where the guy was expertly eluding the crew and giving them the runaround with false clues as he attempted to escape the ship were really well done. Cool to see the Enterprise crew outsmarted on their own turf. Even better for what the writers didn't have the soldier guy do, e.g. take over the bridge and commandeer the whole ship, which has been done to death.

watched a couple really good ones tonight, both from season 5. the two parter 'time's arrow' featuring the death of data, time-travel, and mark twain. also 'conundrum' in which the crew of the enterprise have their memories wiped and CHAOS ENSUES incl riker getting busy with both ensign ro and troi as well as worf assuming command lol.

admittedly a possibility but upon review in the sober morning light this episode about kirk's automatic seduction of a 12-year-old girl who is actually 300 is still next-level
― my Sonicare toothbrush (difficult listening hour), Saturday, 9 July 2011 19:06 (nine years ago) link
the one where picard has to go on a secret mission (with dr. crusher & worf) and a controlfreak douche takes control of the enterprise, asks deanna troi to wear 'regulation uniform' while on duty.

for some reason i've decided to watch every episode of ds9 chronologically. enjoying it so far even though i haven't gotten to the good seasons yet

highlights from season 1'the vortex' - plot in this one is w/e but i found the guest performance endearingly weird'progress' - seems like they had the kira episodes down from the start whereas some of the other characters aren't that interesting yet. also the throwaway scene where o'brien talks to jake and nog is funny'duet' - obv

just watched the 2-parter where sisko and bashir get transported back in time to 2024 san francisco which is almost believably distopian

finished season 3, i think season 2 had more good standalone episodes but the story arc stuff starts to take off here. s3 highlights:"defiant" - riker"past tense" pt 1&2 - as mentioned in my previous post"destiny" - best take so far on the federation science vs bajoran religion subtheme"visionary" - o'brien keeps seeing scenes of disaster from 5 hours in the future and has to prevent them, goofy time travel ep but i thought it was fun & well done"improbable cause"/"the die is cast" - main story arc, this is where shit really starts to get good

maybe this is one for i love comics but can ian or someone informed speak on those glossy bound photorealistic Star Trek: New Visions?
I was waiting for a record store to open and killed time browsing one of these, owner looked at me strange as I was laughing out loud at how boned out and '96 clip art the thing was. Maybe the creator or licensor was photoshopping himself into the story? It felt very demented with shades of old man lol tubmlr Henry Darger.
none of these are from Hollow Man but here:

been rewatching some voyager before bed this week
there are some pretty messed-up voyager episodes in the later seasons! one in particular has the crew discovering they aren't actually voyager, but a copy that happened after a biomimetic planet encountered the ship. they're happily on their way to the alpha quadrant when everyone's body and the ship itself start breaking down.

Falls in love with Charles Bronson's wife but Kirk ruins it, though, in doing so, he saves us from more of McCoy wandering about making mint juleps and saying y'all.

― Rock Wokeman (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 27 December 2016 23:51 (three years ago) link
Indeed, though it's Kirk who chucks a lot of inane racist insults at Spock in order to get him angry enough to overcome the deleterious effects of being in love and happy.

Classic episode was just on: Good Kirk/Evil Kirk. The combined scientific and medical knowledge of Spock and Bones insufficient to work out that the way you distinguish between the two is Evil Kirk wears more eyeliner. Warp factor scenery chewing from Shatner.
