  • The enterprise loses one of its own

    This is one of the most heart wrenching episodes and I still have trouble watching it even today. When Tasha Yar gets wacked ( for no good reason ) it leaves the viewer helpless and confused how a single character, even one as prominent as a bridge officer, can be killed off so easily. Sure we get to see her in about 2 more episodes but, come on. This episode has a unique metaphor, pertaining to evil, nothing Kubric-esque though. In hind sight I wuold have still given up yar to save troi because the show would lose a certain petoir without her. Yar was just another blonde who could be replaced
