  • The Good, the Bad, and the Klingon

    This offbeat Worf episode (which serves as a vehicle for Brent Spiner to flex his acting muscles) is a fan favorite, thanks to everyone clearly having a great time paying homage to the great Westerns. (Personally, I would have stuck with the episode's original title: "The Good, the Bad and the Klingon.") The plot allows the cast and crew to film outside in a back lot for a change, and director Patrick Stewart makes the most of the opportunity. And while the episode is another "malfunctioning holodeck story", most fans give it a pass, because it's so darn entertaining. (DS9 would even go on to reinvent the premise and improve upon it with their fourth season episode, "Our Man Bashir".)
