While Season Two of Star Trek: The Next Generation was, in general, a large improvement over the quite weak First Season, there are a handful of weak episodes here in Season Two that showcase the fact that the series heads were still not quite sure where to go with the characters and the series. Sandwiched between two great Trek episodes and two of the bests of Season Two ("Time Squared" and "Q Who") are two dull episodes - "The Icarus Factor," while not a terrible episode" is the first of these two. Featuring a boring story between Will and father Kyle Riker and an unintentionally hilarious Worf B-story, "The Icarus Factor" is one of the most easily skippable TNG episodes of Season Two. Really the only aspect that would begin to make the episode a must see is the fact that it is the first time that Riker is offered the Captain's chair – a reoccurring theme for the character.
