Episode 5-19, The First Duty

The First Duty is an actually good Wesley episode, but mostly because of Robert Duncan MacNeill (pre Mr. Paris) and Ray Walston as the fabled Boothby we’ve heard so much about. The episode does a nice job of showing how high pressure a Starfleet commission can be and the insanely high standards for all cadets. It was also nice to see how those expectations broke Wesley since his desire to fit in outweighed his better judgment (at least till he finally; predictably) confessed.
