  • As a feature length outing, the two parts of The Best of Both Worlds are possibly better than the Star Trek franchise's two most memorable movies, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

    Words cannot begin to describe how good this two part episode is. ST:TNG got off to a rough start with the show struggling to find it's ground in the first two seasons. By the third season it had reached a consistent enough quality to be regarded as a worthy follow up to the original series from the 1960s.

    But it got better. Series Three gave us some of the most memorable Star Trek episodes ever, as well as some of the best science fiction in general, most notably the Tasha Yar comeback episode Yesterday's Enterprise and the hilarious Q story Deja Q.

    But despite the quality of those episodes the series had yet to peak. The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1 builds up to the best cliff-hanger I have ever seen on a television show. It's hard not to talk about why the 'to be continued...' works so well without giving it away, suffice to say, if you haven't seen this episode yet, i implore you to watch it.
