  • This is a remake of the episode, 'The Naked Time,' from Star Trek: The Original Series. An alien substance, transmitted through touch, has an intoxicating effect on the crew, exposing their most guarded inhibitions.

    Worth Watching? Yes

    Note: Feels like Comic Relief

    Character Focus: Includes most of the crew, but Data stands out

    This is a nostalgic episode, a nod, to Star Trek: The Original Series, if you will. Thus, nothing new, and meant to be a fan pleaser. The episode doesn't seem to take itself too seriously, and neither should you when watching it. It was one of the very first episodes of Star Trek: TNG, and I belive it's purpose was to reel in new viewers with it's humorous plot, and at the same time, attract fans from The Original Series (because of it's familiar plot). When it comes down to it, this episode feels like a classic, guilty pleasure (think, 'The Trouble with Tribbles from TOS, and Tribbles & Tribulations from DS9).
