laugh.gif Yes. Same rule goes for Deanna in uniform and sensible hair, vs. fashion show and that ridiculous do that looked like a maypole.

I had a massive crush on Riker when he was bearded.





I'll get my coat.

It's perfectly understandable. Without the beard he looks like a shapeless blob in a uniform. the beard actually makes him look distinguished.

Troi is a bit more difficult to call than Riker, 'cos not only have you got the space mini-skirt look, but also two uniforms: The proper Starfleet look, and the skintight purple bodysuit.

She only really got watchable when she got into the proper starfleet uniform. Prior to that she used to make me cringe 'I sense anger Captain.....' just after the Enterprise had taken a photon blast.

And let's not forget the blue bodysuit, either...

Yeah, I'm glad she finally toned down the empath stuff, too.

Let's face it, the only reason Majel Barrett was Deanna's mother is because she was Gene Roddenberry's wife. Terrible actress.

That's a damn fine episode, that is.

As for TNG Season 7, give some love to "The Pegasus," already! A great Riker episode, if ever there was one, and a great episode in its own right. I'm also partial to "Parallels," but not everyone digs that one as much.

It is all dragged down a bit by episodes like "Sub Rosa," though... I like Dr. Crusher as much as the next guy, but surely they could have done more for her than hook her up with some ghost in an episode reportedly cribbed from an Anne Rice novel.

Was Parallels the one where he was acting in the play with Data but it kept turning into a real-life hallucination where he really was in an insane asylum? That was one of his best-acted episodes.


QUOTE (Omniscia @ Jan 14 2007, 05:41 PM)
That, I think you will find, is also a Season 7 episode, "Attached."

That was the one where they were telepathically linked and she finally found out that Picard had been in love with her for years, right? Again, good episode.

I still think they should have let Wesley get killed for running on the grass.

He was a pint sized prick and a half.

The traveller!!! - Why not just have him killed off lke the did with Tasha?

No. That was "Frame of Mind."

I didn't mean to single "Parallels" out as a good Riker episode, but rather a good Season 7 episode. It's the one in which Worf returns from a conference somewhere off-ship, and notices many strange goings-on, before realising he's being bounced around between alternate dimensions.

Where he is in love with Troi in each of them - all apart from his own.

This sets up the whole beginning of All Good Things.

I thought I was in a parallel universe there, my RNA was out of sync or whatever with everyone elses', glad it's sorted out wacko.gif

Yeah, yeah, the whole Troi subplot thing was a little naff, but I'm willing to let it slide.

I grew up on TNG and loved every second of it, especially anything to do with Q. Liked the original for it's camp cheese. Found DS9 painfully dull. Liked Voyager most of the time. Watched 3 episodes of Enterprise and got bored.

I'm still nostalgic about TOS. One of the funniest Sci-fi lines ever came from the banter with McCoy. In "The Devil in the Dark", he has to heal a wounded silicon-creature, and he says "I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer."

Ahh. That is also a muchos good episode - it all revolves around the birthday-cake cutting, as I seem to recall. The Troi subplot that came along afterwards was a bit naff, but I loved Worf's extreme awkwardness in this episode about discovering he was married to her in alternate existences.

I too, loved all the Q episodes. He and Picard were such a superb pair when playing off each other.
