Star Trek: The Next Generation is a show which shouldn’t exist. The Original Series found a new popularity with the movies and was doing extremely well in syndication seventeen years after it ceased production. The biggest difference between the Original Series and the Next Generation is the lack of conflict between the people on the Enterprise. Where Kirk would happily engage in workplace bullying, Picard (the new captain) governs the Enterprise by roundtable. Very rarely do we see Picard make a decision without consulting whoever happens to be on the bridge.
Once again, James has helped me to craft a list of the six episodes from this series that you should watch, although this time we have no episodes in common.
