Episode 6-18, Starship Mine

Starship Mine is such a fun episode! Getting to see Picard sort of go commando onboard his own ship to thwart the people stealing (something) from the engine core was really cool. I also love how Data is learning to make small talk and the opening sequence showing how annoying it would be to be the captain of a starship would be with everyone constantly asking you for something, The energy beam slowly making its way across the ship was also a cool sci-fi device that added a layer of tension which kept the episode always moving forward. I’m not sure about ending the episode with a Mr. Ed reference, but overall this is a fantastic episode.
