25 Days of TNG, Day 19: The Relaunch

Even though Star Trek canon says that, after Nemesis, there was no more official Trek until Spock attempted to save Romulus, I think we all knew the intellectual property was too valuable to just be left lying there. The TNG … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 18: The Best and Worst of the TNG Films

Following the TNG season finale, I think it was already known that a film was in the offing. At least one. Turns out we got four, all of which you’ve probably seen, and most of which have both good and … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 17: The Best and Worst of Season 7

I’m not sure when exactly we knew that the seventh season of TNG was going to be the final one, but as far as final seasons go, it didn’t really blow me away. Compared to other final seasons — House, … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 16: The 10 Best Tie-In Novels

As I was researching the tie-in novel articles, I realized just how many of the TNG tie-ins I didn’t read. Not that I’m going to go back and read them now; it’s just interesting to me. But even with missing … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 15: The 10 Worst Tie-In Novels

25 Days of TNG, Day 14: The Best and Worst of Season 6

The sixth season of TNG was sort of weird. There were a lot of iffy episodes, and several that I just didn’t like (and couldn’t tell you why). But it did have my favorite Riker episode of all time. The … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 13: 10 Things That Don’t Hold Up

Trek returned to TV twenty years after its original premiere, and though everything was highly upgraded, there were still technological advancements that were completely unexpected that have since made TNG into something of a dinosaur. Here are ten of them. … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 12: The Best and Worst of Season 5

For my money, if you chop off the premiere and the finale, Season 5 was probably the best season of TNG. Though it had a few big-time stinkers, the great episodes were really great and even the middling ones weren’t … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 11: Anachronisms and the Stifling of Creativity

Because of the changing nature of pop culture and fashion, it’s very difficult to include contemporary references in fiction. Some people do it very well — Seth McFarlane, the writers of Psych and Warehouse 13, Joss Whedon — and some … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 10: The Best and Worst of Season 4

Season Four had some pretty high-concept, hard-hitting episodes. It also introduced a war that apparently everyone in the Trek universe either missed, ignored, or forgot about. And it sent Wesley off to Starfleet Academy, so if you weren’t a fan, … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 8: The Best and Worst of Season 3

After the debacle that was Season Two (and the writer’s strike), it really amazed me just how strong TNG came back with the third season. Despite a somewhat-iffy premiere (the baseball references did nothing at all for me), the next … Continue reading

25 Days of TNG, Day 6: The Best and Worst of Season 2

Season Two is generally considered to be the worst of all the TNG seasons, and with good reason: there were some truly atrocious episodes. Of course, the Borg were introduced in Season Two, so it can’t be totally discounted. The … Continue reading
