  • Not really all that vital to the plot

    Ok, I'll admit that as far as filler episodes go, 'Angel One' was a good one, it had a cheesy ending, but it's a good one. The only problem I really have with it is that it doesn't really have any point in the series except to maybe prove that the Enterprise crew can't always get what they want and also to show that Geordi knows how to captain the ship if necessary.

    Plot line: The Enterprise is given the duty to find survivors of a ship that was badly damaged in an asteroid 'attack'. The escape pods of the survivors are tracked to a planet named 'Angel One' which the Federation has not had contact with for 62 years. Upon arrival on the planet, it is discovered that it is a primarily matrichal society (ie: run by women). This leads to various issues in communication and so on and so forth.

    Anyway, the survivors are eventually located, but they refuse to leave with the Enterprise crew. Meanwhile, back on the Enterprise, a nasty virus is sweeping through the ship. Riker has a meeting with Mistress Beata (wearing very dodgy 'traditional garb'). Time moves on, Riker tries to 'steal' the survivors, but Doctor Beverly won't allow them on board because of the virus.

    Etc the end, the survivors are exiled to an unpopulated corner of the planet, Beverly cures the crew and everyone lives happily ever.

    Like I said, filler episode with a cheesy ending.
