  • Very Special Episode, but not in a good way...

    It looks like TNG is looking for some after school special award. The concept was very good, I have to admit, but the execution left quite a bit to be desired.

    Incorperating themes of drug addiction and extortion, this episode would have done much better if not for the incredibly out of place preaching by Yar and Westley. Apart from that, the show plays out decently with a pretty clever ending sequence save this episode from being a complete sap fest.

    I wouldn\'t be surprised if Tasha had told Westley \"Winners don\'t use drugs\". D.A.R.E. would have definately been proud.
