  • This is arguably the best of TNG's tributes to the original series.

    TNG had several guest appearances by characters from the original series - "An Encounter at Farpoint", "Sarek", "Reunification", and "Relics". "Sarek" may very well be the best, simply due to the tightness of the script.

    Mark Lenard does a fine, affecting job as a man in denial of his terminal decline. With the exception of Patrick Stewart, who takes top billing, the rest of the crew does a good job in a supporting role.

    Two additional comments:

    1) Much is made of Picard's "exceptional acting" in the mind-meld scene. While it shows his tremendous range of abilities, I wouldn't characterize it as one of his finest moments of the series.

    2) A little too many references to "logic". Yes, I know these are Vulcans, WE GET IT.
