  • Wesley finally messes up!


    Star Trek revisits a favorite theme here: the discovery and threat of a new life form that has been misunderstood by humans, and reinvents Wesley Crusher in the process. There might be better episodes of this sort ("The Devil in the Dark" comes to mind) but "Evolution" is a strong episode that helps us feel closer to Wesley by humanizing him and throws in a nice guest appearance by Ken Jenkins as Dr. Stubbs. The return of Dr. Crusher is also welcome, and the increasing stability behind the scenes is evident from the get go with this solid start to the third season.
