  • TNG begins a long limp to the finish line.

    The Star Trek business was pretty busy at this time, finishing up TNG's final season while simultaneously juggling its first feature film, DS9's second season and the to-be-Voyager. Unfortunately this had an extremely detrimental effect on TNG, which despite being halfway through the season had only about 2 great episodes left in it.

    "Homeward" is not bad or painful to watch. It's just dull. I actually think this is one of the better Worf roles from the last 3 season, simply because the overdone Klingon theme gets a rest. (Not to mention no Alexander!)

    That said, the whole story is rather dull and banal. Another Prime Directive violation, big whoop, and the "victims" are a rather dull alien race.

    You won't miss much if you skip this one.
