  • Who will win Custody? Find out on this week's TNG!

    This budget saving bottle show asks a lot of Patrick Stewart and guest star Chad Allen (the human boy), who take a ho-hum, unfocused script and do the best they can with it. In the end, the episode lacks any spark or heart, featuring too much talk and too little of interest. Watching a custody battle unfold between well meaning adults simply doesn't make for riveting sci fi television, although Deep Space Nine is able to do it better with their second season episode, "Cardassians".
