  • TNG finally starts coming to terms with its own \\\'history\\\'...

    Wonderful performances abound as TNG producers truly start to attempt to pay homage to the original series. The story of Sarek and his sadly degenrative disease is one of the most heartbreaking in Trek lore. The \\\'mystery\\\' of the sudden violence aboard 1701-D is semi-ludicrous,but ends up almost \\\'logical\\\'. Mark Lenard has never been better as Sarek; Joanna Lee is believeable as second wife Perrin, and Patrick Stewart is simply amazing during the mind meld scene. Top-notch direction and writing are also highlights of one of the better shows in the series.
