    It's a "Prime Directive" episode, which, of course, consists of (accidently) breaking the Federation's most valued law and putting the pieces back together again. After mixed results with some previous attempts ("Justice", "Pen Pals") the writers discard the heavy-handed preachyness and tell a nice sci fi story with a good mix of comedy and drama – using Troi and Riker particularly well.. The episode even touches on the developments of religion, a theme the Trek tv shows generally avoid. The result is a good episode, although surprisingly Voyager would top it with a similar but more ambitious idea in their sixth season episode "Blink of an Eye".
