  • Pedestrian, but well structured

    "Ensign Ro" introduces Michelle Forbes as the titular character in a pedestrian, but well structured, story. (This episode was supposed to be important for introducing the character to replace Wesley. However, following this one, Forbes doesn't appear in all that many more episodes than Wheaton himself, and the episode is more historically important for laying some more of the groundwork for Deep Space Nine.) Guest starring Whoopi Goldberg, the episode does have a well written "Guinan" scene that's one of her best on the show.
