    It's easy to question the decision of remaking an original Star Trek episode ("The Naked Time")… especially when it's done right at the beginning of the spinoff series! But this one isn't a bad little first season offering. Wheaton (Wesley) and Spiner (Data) are fantastic, and you can tell they're already getting a handle on their alter egos. The script is tight and gives all the characters a chance to let us learn a little more about them. It also has a sense of humor that "The Naked Time" lacks. That said, I'm not quite sure why Roddenberry didn't try for a similar episode with a different catalyst – to separate it from the original series.
