Star Trek: The Next Generation “The Battle” (part 1 of 4)
[Webmaster’s note: Special thanks go out to Joshua Hutcheson for helping to proofread and edit this recap!]
So, I had this conversation with Albert the other day:
Albert: Sure! We’ve been doing a lot of ‘80s TV lately, you know, The A-Team, Family Ties…
Kevin: Hmm… Well, Star Trek: The Next Generation started in the ‘80s, how about I do some of that?
Albert: Star Trek recaps?! On the Agony Booth?! That’s… brilliant!!
Okay, it might not have gone precisely like that. But at any rate, here I am, and off we go!
This was the ninth episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation to air, and like most first season episodes, it had writing that you could charitably describe as “choppy”. I think it’s fair to say that if it wasn’t Star Trek, there’s no telling if it would have actually seen a second season. But of course it was, it did, and it did get better. But that’s another story.
