Episode 1-21, Symbiosis

Symbiosis is on the one hand very 80’s with its “Just Say No” philosophy, but on the other it explores the philosophy of what to do when people are suffering and if giving them drugs will, at least for the short term, relieve suffering. Good use of the Prime Directive and how Picard and Crusher disagree about what is the humane (human) thing to do.

Episode 1-19, Heart of Glory

19 episodes in before finally getting an episode with Worf and the Klingons. I’m surprised Dorn didn’t quit the show this late in before the writers remembered he was getting a paycheck from Paramount every week. Good episode, especially considering how much of Worf’s character arc is eventually covered thru 7 seasons of TNG and another 4 of DS9.
