  • TNG takes on an obliquely religious slant.

    7.5
    Unlike DS9, TNG took place in a hyperrational world. No matter how otherworldly or mystical, almost every phenomenon had some scientific explanation.

    While not literally bringing up this issue, the story pretty clearly portrays John Doe as a messianic figure - persecuted by his own people because he and a few others are reaching a newly enlightened state, and having mysterious healing powers. It builds nicely, setting up a fair amount of excitement about who exactly John is, and what he is becoming. The resolution is somewhat disappointing, unfortunately.

    Also – the idea of Worf coaching Geordi about women is hilarious. Well played!
