Ok, ok. I'm done with the Wil Wheaton bit.

Season 1 has some nice eps.

Encounter at Farpoint
The Naked Now
The Battle
11001001
When The Bough Breaks
Home Soil - ?( Ugly bags of mostly water! :laugh: ? )
Heart of Glory
Symbiosis
Conspiracy
The Neutral Zone

Sounds like a list to get a BF into it, instead of a GF.
:D
but I wouldn't like to watch S1 either unless i really wanted to..

Hmm, you're right. They're more "guy" episodes. I remember those are the ones I liked upon first viewing.

Thanks everyone for all your input.

Allie88 I remembered to explain to her what you posted.  She found it very intriguing.  

So I showed her The Inner Light and she loved it.
She was surprised to find out star trek isn't all about just techno babble with some special effects.  She actually started to get a little teary eyed in some parts.

I tried to not spoil anything for her while we sat down and watched it.  I asked her to tell me if there was anything she didn't get.  She didn't understand what the 'federation' was, what the '... computer freeze program' phrase meant, .. etc

all in all so far so good.
she's looking forward to our next episode.

I think next will be The Drumhead.

I'll keep you guys updated...

I think "First Contact" is the best TNG film

LOL! Only good part of that episode. *enchanted bunny*

I just watched 'Genesis', great episode. I would recommend it and 'Booby Trap' to the list but it would seem it's full. But I wouldn't have understood it a week or two ago.

Glad you are able to get your girl friend to like Inner Light. It has been real tough for me to recruit women to watch, b/c most are just not interested in sci-fi. Even Inner Light that may get one or two tears shed totally dismiss it due to not believing in ancient culture 1000 years ago that can play with someone's memory. So really glad for you.

From my experience, most regular feeling-driven women will not like TNG, period. Voyager, TOS, and DS9 have better chance. Out of all the women that watched some Star Trek with me, the only TNG show that attracted most interest was the movie Insurrection.

Maybe you should start her off on DSN because the show is more of a soap opera.  Out of all the characters from DSN and TNG which character do you think she would relate to the most?  Then pick the episode that's focused on that character.

Definitely "Darmok".

Also - she's bound to like "The Game" with the romance between Wesley and Robin Lefler. :rookie:
