Peak Performance has a near perfect script. I can’t think of another episode that utilizes each character as well as this one. Everyone plays to their strengths and even the subplot serves to keep the emotional and philosophical core of the story moving forward. It even manages to take into account the Borg threat so it further builds the 24th century world. Great episode that’s also fun and exciting and even lets both Picard and Riker win when they compete against each other.
